ABOUT THE LIVING LIFE IN COSTA RICA BLOG

I (Vicki Skinner - aka "THE Sarong Goddess") created this blog in 2007 to share DETAILED Finds•Lists•Info•Events•Experiences to help bring more EASE to people living in, visiting or thinking of moving to Costa Rica since DETAILS are NOT easy to find!
I’m NOT an expert (an "expert" 2 ME knows 101%-NOT me). I believe in sharin info•helping where I can! And with over 2,200 entries, so some things might be out of date, so if you find old info PLEASE help each other by getting the updated info & sharing it with me to revise. At least you have some basic info to get you started.
VOLUNTEER TO HELP:
Better yet - do you have extra time on your hands & looking for a volunteer project? Since this blog is a labor of love & RARELY does anyone share a donation (even though MANY have said how much it's helped them), I could REALLY use help updating info. Spanish speakers ESPECIALLY welcome since my VicLish can be somewhat limited at times!!

They have sheets for extra deep and extra-extra deep mattresses and are one of the few stores in Costa Rica where they have a LARGE selection of sheets sold INDIVIDUALLY so you don't have to only get king size pillow cases with your king set if you are really just desiring standard pillow cases - or you don't have to settle for a top sheet if you don't use one and only use a duvet.  Mattress and Pillow Protectors•Covers•Mattress Pads - in Super Thick, Regular and WaterProof as well as Bed Defender Waterproof Mattress pads (made from non-plastic - noise free material).  Comforters and Blankets (all 100% cotton).  Euro Pillows and other Decorative Pillows in everything from synthetic, cotton and Down, Down Alternative with Pillow Cases in sizes from Standard, Queen and King.  Duvet Covers.

What's helped keep Kate Fine Linens in business for 9+ years is their quality and large selection and VERY classy Customer Service and usually attended by 2 people many of which have been working at Kate Fine Linens for MANY years so they KNOW what they're talking about (and they stay because they are treated SOOOO well and ethically thanks to owner Brenda!!!!

I've been to Costa Rica 4 months ago but I never had the chance to visit this store. But I think I should've have. I have heard they have many good stuffs there. Will go there when I come back next year.
