¿Dónde puedo copiar la llave?

Now that I officially (!) live in Spain, I reckon it's time to move beyond tourist Spanish. In places like Corralejo, ¿Dónde está el bar? or ¿Dónde está el restaurante? are really silly questions. They are, well, everywhere. ¿Dónde está la ferretería? — entirely different matter. I actually had to ask this last week. Although even that did not help: not every ferretería provides the service I was after.

"¿Dónde puedo copiar la llave?"

(For the record, I did not find any open establishment doing that in Corralejo.)

Here are a few more words which can be of real use when you just move in and start looking for stuff:
el cubobucket
el cuchilloknife
la escobabroom
el fontanero, la fontaneraplumber
la fregona / la mopamop
el hervidor(electric) kettle
la lavadora / el lavarropaswashing machine
el lavavajillasdishwasher
el (punto de) reciclajerecycling (point)
el recogedordustpan
el sacacorchoscorkscrew
