The Orihuela Costa has numerous "Chino Bazaars" located all over. I you need anything for the house, they will have and normally at a lower price. Any kind of trinket to kitchenware and plants to DIY you will find it. Always look at it though as sometimes the quality can be the same as the price, "cheap". They are pretty much on every corner and are huge!
