I first saw one in a townhouse we rented and like you, have wanted one ever since! I was so pleased when I saw them. There were three, all slightly different. We chose one who looked very proud, just like the one on the roundabout!
We bought one too, he is called Pollo and lives by the TV! We don't bring much back now as we do hand luggage, just house and design magazines to look at during the time before we can get back over!

Mark and kate1 like this.

Thanks I will have a look in that shop.

The only Pollensa cockerel I have is a sticker on the back window of my company van.

It reminds me of holidays every day



If anyone wants to buy one they are from the newspaper shop that is on the corner of the narrow street that runs between between Eu Centro restaurant and near the old 'font' drinking fountain thing in the very small square that is very near font de gall restaurant.( not a very good description I know..)

You have to ask for them at the counter as they are under the counter.

The sticker is also available in Black.

I always buy Dodot nappy wipes - very sad but I prefer them to the ones in the UK.
Also pimenton, paella herb mix and pedro jimenez vinegar. And a few bottles of macia batle...

Hi, we always bring home some Chovi allioli, but not too many as we need an excuse to fly back and buy more when they are all eaten. Also a feww bottles of C`an Vidalet wine wrapped up in our dirty washing and towels with crossed fingers that they do not smash on the way home---- so far , no broken bottles.
On arrival our very first purchase is ham from Charcuterie Mateo in the market , along with wonderful cheese and some quince paste for our lunches. I can almost taste it now !
