I was foolish enough to leave my keys in the lock for a few minutes after I returned home yesterday and sure enough when I went to retrieve them some enterprising young fellow had already helped himself to them. Does anyone know of a reputable locksmith service in hanoi?

Shaving Brush? My boyfriend's birthday is coming up, and he has a pathetic stub of a shaving brush with a few toothy bristles left. I think it would be a lovely gift, but haven't a clue as to where I can find one of these. Any ideas :) Thanks so much!

Funny - I copied an exact phrase from a post title and nothing came up, so I guess I'll post. I'm looking for a reliable camera and lens repair technician in Hanoi. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks, hc.

Hi there. Does anyone know if you can get wood shavings or sawdust in Hanoi or the vicinity? We use it as substrate in our cat's toilet box. Where we are now, we just stop by the village lumber mill and they sell us a big sack a shavings for a couple bucks. Way better than clay. Thanks ; )

15-20 years ago, there was an amazing tailor in Hanoi named Van (a woman). Many of the female expats got her to make clothes for them. I have lost her contact details. Does anyone know Van and how to contact her? Thanks!

Does anyone know where I might buy some hair dye, please? Ideally looking for the semi-permanent kind but would settle for permanent if need be. If anyone knows where I can purchase, I would appreciate if they can let me know. Cheers! Lorraine

Hello everyone! This is Sally from China. And I want to find some local fashion garments which focus on coats or dresses in Hanoi for my clients. So are there anyone who can kindly give me a hand to briefly introduce the fashion industry in Hanoi? It will be my grateful to hear from your suggestions. Thanks.

Hello! I will move with my family that includes 8 month old baby to Hanoi this October. Was wondering if babyfood is easily available in shops? Families with babies and infants - maybe you have some other important information that we should know beforehand? Thanks!
