Forum rules
1) Please search :pray: before posting. Note that you should also search content-relevant forums (like Food & Drink for those items, and not just WCIF). If there is a content-relevant forum, the thread should be there, not here.

2) Please append your request to an existing thread if you find a stale one, rather than starting a new one. :pray:

3) Please post separately :pray: for each search item, not one thread for "olives and sour cream". Two threads, one for each. This makes it much easier for the moderator to merge your thread with an existing one, if any.

Of course, if you still can't find what you're looking for, please do feel free to post, and we'll do our very best to help you find what you need. If you have any trouble using the search function or the forum, please don't hesitate to send a PM (private message) to the Where Can I find...? moderator asking for help. Happy posting!!! :rainbow:

Any idea where to get children's face paints or something equivalent in Taipei? We're in Wanlong but I don't mind travelling.

Thanks Tango, but I need them for Saturday. Do you know if they have a shop to visit? I can't see anything on the website.

Have you tried the local stationery store? I know there are some at the one in Muzha on Jungshun Street, if you can't find anywhere closer. I also saw a few nice ones at the Eslite in Neihu. You could try the children's Eslite in Gongguan, maybe give them a call?

I don't' think they have a shop but provide the supplies to other shops who stock on the shelves and sell.

Thanks asiababy and tango. I tried my local stationery shop but no joy. I'll try a few different places tomorrow. If all fails I'll go to the Eslite near 101. Does anyone know the Chinese for face paints? (In pinyin, please!)

Toys r Us has them. On Linsen Road, next to the Xinxin Theater. In English, though. :D
