Help me dress my toddler

I love shopping for my one-year-old at Tea Collection. The clothes are stylish yet practical, durable, and fairly-priced for the quality. I also really like that the designs are inspired by cultures around the world - it keeps things fresh and interesting. Where else can I find similar kids' clothes? I prefer to shop online but all suggestions are welcome!

Where to buy polyhedral dice near Slabtown, Portland, OR?

I'm DMing a game tonight, and I forgot my dice at home. I'm carless and pretty busy in Portland's Slabtown district (deepish NW). Does anybody know the closest place I could buy a set of polyhedral dice? I know I could go to Powell's, but that'd take about an hour. Ideas?

A gift so good, planets move ... ?

A good friend is having a birthday soon. I know that it would please him greatly to have his solid and long-standing interest in astrology recognised in the gift I give him. He's a property lawyer by day and his oft-derided interest plays an important role in his personal spiritual practice. [more inside]

Can a mechanic charge me for trial & error parts?

My timing belt/chain system needed replacing, but the mechanic is charging me for parts he installed while figuring this out. Am I liable for these or is it reasonable to ask him to uninstall them without a large increase in labor cost? [more inside]

NYC shop that sells crochet yarn?

I'm looking for a brick-and-mortar shop (ideally in Manhattan, but am fine with Brooklyn or Queens) that sells a good selection of #8 cotton crochet thread, like this. Doesn't need to be DMC brand, just need that size and (hopefully) enough colors that I can find what I need. I have tried Michael's and my local yarn shops on the Upper West Side, and apparently they're too much of a niche item to carry anymore. Have you seen these balls? I am not looking for embroidery floss.

New York City Weird Book Hunting

I'll be in NYC next week with the family. While most of my time will be occupied by escorting a 6 year old to museums, dinosaurs, and battleships, I will have a free afternoon to browse bookshops. I am looking for used bookshops with a good selection of fringe (cryptids, UFOs, psychic mysteries, etc) books. Specifically, I want mass market UFO paperbacks from the 60s-90s, but will take all comers in that vein. [more inside]

rugged travel alarm clock?

Can you recommend a battery-powered alarm clock that will survive my cat? It should either be heavy enough that he can't slide it around with his paw, or small and tough enough to keep time when stuffed under a pillow. [more inside]
