Has anyone heard of a bath store in Barcelona called Banon?

While we were visiting Spain last week we were at a restaurant in Altea (unbelievable food, ambiance and service) called Oustau de Altea, I saw an item that could be purchased at a store in Barcelona called Banon and was given the url for it but it won't work. Can anyone help me find it?

You saw this in a restaurant? There's a French cheese by that name (Banon).

My guess is that 1-Banon cheese makers also produce gifts etc, 2- someone just took that name because it is more widely known (I think) as a Cheese producer from Provence.
I had a similar problem once, I found a bath product in Paris, I finally years later found it again, but they do not sell in the US and have no website..sigh!
Good luck on your search!

there is a chain store chain all over spain called BAÑON. do not know if they have website. it could be that one you were told.

i may be going to the USA next week and would not mind buying, sending it to you from there if it is not too big .( i assume you are in the USA? ).

it is not a bath store , per se.. has a lot of different household things, bath included.
usually these things can be found elsewhere.. most come from china.

Hi,
if itīs the same shop that Lincasanova mentions, it seems to be mainly a Valencia chain shop : http://tinyurl.com/9u7oa

I did a search, and I found that site, with an address and phone numbers. It looks like Lin description ...

Hi Lin,

something you said in your post ... I googled "Bañon baño", and the fourth entry sounded like that

Enjoy your trip to America !
