Please consider hiring Elix Solorano for your household jobs including house cleaning. I have known him for over 3 years now and he has become a close friend who I trust implicitly.

He painted the interior of my house, hung pictures, installed curtain rods, cleaned my floors and windows, even prepped food for a function I was hosting. He moved heavy furniture, watered my plants when I went away for a week, walked my 2 dogs when I had surgery and my garden looks beautiful now that he has brought it back to life. He can also assist you as a translator with doctor’s appointments, opening a bank account, legal matters etc. He worked for over 3 years as a waiter and food prepper at various restaurants here in Cuenca.

Our ship came in – now what?

We have 2 shipments that have finally made their way to Guayaquil. We listened to what many of our customers wanted, and brought in the items that we believe CosasPrep’s customers will be excited about having. However, we don’t have room in our warehouse or stores for everything. So…we need to make room and are willing to sell our overstock of fire extinguisher balls below cost. Originally $25.75, we are now offering them for only $10 each.

We believe that our fire extinguisher balls are one of our best and most important products offered by CosasPrep. They are superior in many ways to traditional fire extinguishers. But…we have 400 of them and they are taking up an entire wall in our warehouse. So, we need to make room and are willing to sell our fire extinguisher balls below cost.

Turn-key dream household furnishings in Ecuador – Showing Jan 5 & 6

Are you looking to move to Ecuador, furnish a house here, or furnish a rental or business?

I have the furnishings of a turn-key 3 BR household for sale. Many carpets, new appliances, everything you need to fully furnish your casa. All very high-quality designer furniture imported from US or collected from around the world. I am a designer/artist. You will not find these items in Ecuador. These are new items, not shown before in a previous sale of another household.

Even bringing this amount in a container to Ecuador now costs in excess of $12,000. I am not including that cost. All the heavy lifting is done for you! Everything is new, barely used or antique.

I prefer to sell this as a unit to one person. That offer will take precedence.
However, full or partial purchase is welcome.

You can browse the items at this link, they are shown as they currently rest in the apartment—scroll through the pics:
vrbo listing # 1797898
https://www.vrbo.com/1797898?noDates=true

Please know that a few items in the photos are not for sale, and things not pictured on this link will be for sale.

There will be a formal showing this week, January 5 and 6.

I will take appointments in the order that I receive the inquiries, starting at 10 AM – 7 PM on January 5th and 6th.

I just have this short window for showing, so please do not ask for times outside that window.

You can come and tag the items you wish to purchase, make a down payment (50%) to hold them, and pick them up March 9, or later.

I will have a list of prices at the showing.
Items not for sale (NFS) will be tagged.

Contact me by email or phone or WhatsApp for more information, or for my US number.

Only serious inquiries please!

High rates of return + safety/security

Because many GringoPost readers may not be familiar with Cooperco, I’d like to introduce this exceptional co-operative to you:

Established in Cuenca in 1965, Cooperco has, until now, been focused almost exclusively on servicing the Cuencano community. That exclusive emphasis has begun to shift. In addition to continuing to serve the Cuencano community, Cooperco, in 2020, expanded its capability to now include a strong initiative serving Cuenca’s international community. Starting from a decidedly strong base, Cooperco has only grown stronger. It is the cooperative that offers CDs with not only high rates of return but unparalleled safety and security of principal. That’s a combination that is hard to beat.

Double D’s: There’s still time to order, but not much

After the holidays, it’s time to lighten things up a bit. The casserole is a low-carb, roasted eggplant dish layered with a not-too-heavy cheese blend and our homemade marinara. The salad (pictured below) is a Mediterranean twist on a classic leaving it light on your palate and light on your waistline. For those of you who are still looking for carbs, an herby focaccia pairs nicely with both savory dishes, and the sweet offers another Mediterranean twist on a traditional dessert.
