UK parcel forwarding to US?

Do any US MeFites have good experiences with parcel forwarding outfits? Use case: I need to make purchases from a vendor in England who won't ship to the US. I'm aware of companies that offer such service, but would be grateful for a recommendation.

I just don't know how to shop for clothes.

I have a problem when it comes to shopping for clothes. Either I angst over a purchase for days and days, or I panic-purchase clothes I don't need. I have a wardrobe full of clothes I don't really wear. I need a strategy when it comes to buying clothes. Well-dressed Mefites who have a well-curated wardrobe of clothes - please share your secrets with me. Plus-sized female/female-bodied Mefites who have this down, I would be particularly keen to hear from you. [more inside]

Store recommendations WWII military memorabilia – Toronto area

Where do you recommend shopping for additions to a budding collection, ideally recommendations that won’t break the bank? Websites with up to date listings to browse before going would be a real plus. Willing to drive a bit outside the city, if it’s worth the trip. Clothing, metals, equipment - open to most anything.

Can I get a re-make for this beloved vintage mug?

I have a mug that I am very attached to. It is possibly old enough to be considered vintage? Unfortunately is very faded after years of being run through the dishwasher. I would love to find another one in better condition, and also for the day that clumsy ol' me drops my current one. Are there sites I don't know of that could aid me in my search? Or is there a company, individual artist, etc. who can re-create it? [more inside]

Camper shoes in downtown Seattle?

Does anyone know of any shops in downtown Seattle that carry Camper shoes? I'd like to try on some pairs I found online. I know Sole Food at U Village has some and there's the store in Bellevue, but I'm hoping for a more convenient location.

Biz Casual Men of Mefi, where do you get your shirts?

I have to wear business casual everyday (chinos/wool pants, button up shirt). I hate it and it's killing me because I hate button-up shirts. Do you have a button-up shirt you love that's comfortable and well-cut and looks ok? Tell me about it. [more inside]

Need business Thank You gift - for a PO Box

I want to send someone a thank you gift for giving me repeat business. But the only mailing address I have available is a PO Box. That means I can't send chocolates (melty) or flowers (wilty). Do you have a suggestion for a small, business-appropriate gift that costs less than $50 and can sit in a PO Box for a few days without being ruined?

For want of a nail and a cobbler

We lost m'ladie's extra-narrow or 4A width golf shoes during a move. Despite hours searching I am no closer to finding any shoe even close (despite the misleading help banners). Is there any business that sells ladies golf shoes in an extra-narrow or (US) 4A width? Who and where are they? I am desperate enough to consider custom made but prior experiences have not been good.

Is this a good enough gas stove?

Our electric oven is dying and I'd like to replace it with a gas one; I've used them in the past and loved them but never owned one. This model is currently a great price - but is it good enough? Should I spend more for something better? Usage: Normal every day cooking for a family of 3. I don't bake often, mostly at Christmas. [more inside]

Buying a new used smartphone, preferably iPhone 6

My iPhone 5 died recently, so it's time for a new (well, used/refurbished phone). My preference is for an iPhone 6 with 64 GB. Verizon is the only provider here, so it must be Verizon-compatible. I've already had some shopping adventures and am generally overwhelmed by all the options and vendors, plus many of them don't give enough info. More inside. [more inside]

Baby monitors

We have this baby monitor. After 16-ish months, the parent unit has started dropping the link at random times during the night, which means loud, unmutable-unless-you-turn-the-whole-unit-off-and-then-sleep-through-your-kid-wailing-for-an-hour beeping. Suggestions for a durable replacement? [more inside]

ISO functional kitchen miniatures

I collect miniature kitchen items. Some of these are just very well-made dollhouse things, but, my ideal is items that have been made in miniature by an actual kitchen product company. Favourites in my collection include mini Rosti Margrethe bowls, a mini crock made by an old crock company, tiny cast iron pans that are technically useable... I want more, but my search skills are weak. [more inside]
