Faucet replacement

Im looking for a suitable kitchen faucet replacement for my Playpac. The old faucet just is cruddy and doesn't turn off.

So far I've been to Lowes and Home Depot but the regular kitchen faucets are way too big for my tiny sink. Also, since the faucet is located on the left side of the sink, a two handled sink faucet won't do because I'd have to reach around the faucet to get to the handle.

Another type I wouldn't be able to use is the type that have the one handle but on the right side. I need one that has the handle on top and it would also be great to have a pull out faucet.

Anyone know where I might be able to find such a thing?

Thanks!

I'd look on eBay. They have an infinite number of types at lower prices than the big box stores. Also check IKEA.

I guess I don't understand. Those little ones are the size I need but I'm going to have both hot and cold water. There is one for hot and cold but it has two handles. Since my faucet sits to the left of the sink I need a single handle.

I like the regular ones at home depot but they are just a little too big for my sink. I need a smaller one with one handle that has both hot and cold lines. No crummy plastic ones. I'd really like a pull out one if I could get it.

Any helpppppppppppp. Pleaseeeeeeeeeeee

Like I said, eBay has literally thousands of faucets. I'm done looking for her.

Aesop's Fables

The Man, the Boy, and the Donkey

A man, his son, and his donkey were on their way to market.
But, soon they met a man who told them, "What's the use of having a donkey if you don't ride on it?"
So, the father put the boy on the donkey's back and they went on.
When they passed by a group of men, one said, "That's boy must be too lazy. He rides while his father walks."
So, the father asked his boy to get off, and he rode on the donkey.
On the way, two women saw them, and one said, "What a shame for that old man to let the child walk!"
So, the father took the boy up to ride with him.
But passersby then began saying, "Poor little donkey!"
So, the man and his son got off. This time they got a bamboo pole, tied the donkey's feet to it and carried the ends of the pole on their shoulders.
Then people they met began laughing at them. They were on the market bridge when one of the donkey's feet got loose and began kicking.
The boy dropped his end of the pole. And the donkey fell into the water and was drowned.

Moral Lesson: "Please all and you please none."
