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!
I'm looking for the best reusable grocery/shopping bags. Parameters within. [more inside]
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?
I'm looking to buy some very specific bracelets (in bulk - say 100 bracelets). Cotton string, comes in various colours, with a rainbow thread wound around it. I'm in the UK. [more inside]
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]
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]
Our small side-product/project went viral, and our previous international warehousing / mailhouse / fulfilment house isn't cutting it and nobody else is returning our calls or emails. Can anyone recommend any specific businesses that might be able to help - Preferably in Europe or Asia. [more inside]
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.
I am having a hell of a time finding a decent women's suit or matching separates that fit my criteria: pantsuit, less than $300, one button on the jacket, straight legged or tapered but not (freaking) cropped, buyable in person in NYC. Black or grey. Help me out here. [more inside]

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]
I'm located in South Australia. I'd like to have some flowers (and a brief, personalised greeting card message) delivered to a relative's home in suburban Manchester, UK, in early March. Any recommendations for professional flower delivery in that area? I need to be able to select, personalise, book and pay safely online.
I mean, actually I'm going to be militant through the Trump administration, but I still need a new mattress. Firm mattress recs needed and further questions inside. [more inside]
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]
What are your go-to sources for your most fashion-forward threads? I live in Milwaukee, so specific examples relevant to that criteria are welcome, but websites, types of stores, or any other resource that you might know about that I don't are welcome as well. [more inside]

Hello, travelers of Metafilter! I was in an airport last month and saw a businessman wheeling a very intriguing-looking suitcase. I couldn't see any labels but it had a distinctive feature that I've never seen before. Can you tell me what suitcase it was? Description inside! [more inside]
