Where to buy a used iPhone? And how to figure out what kind I need?

My daughter's iphone 4S has just given up the ghost. I had been thinking of replacing it soonish, but my budget recently took a huge hit so we put it off. And then now our hand is forced because the entire right side of the screen does not register any touches at all. She cannot even unlock it. [more inside]

What would (can) you buy for $1.98 online?

I have a prepaid Visa card from a rebate offer that I've spent all but $1.98 on... and now I've realized that I can't think of what to buy to use it up completely. (I know I should have thought of this problem earlier, but here I am). Ahem, I could also buy two $0.99 items... Any good things I should get? Thanks, hivemind.

What's this style of necklace called?

I recently admired this necklace in a charming little shop. Alas, owning it is entirely out of the question due to cost, but I'd love to find something similar. Can you tell me what search terms to use?

Accidentally sent BIG amazon package to old address -- what do do now?

I am an idiot and accidentally sent my Amazon packages (some of which are pretty big) to an old address. My old landlord is understandably annoyed and doesn't want to deal with it. He's an old man, not a professional landlord in the business-y sense of the word. It is far away from where I live, and I don't know anyone in the area who can get them for me. [more inside]

The best fountain pen money can buy?

On the spur of the moment, I have been tasked to research the purchase of a fountain pen that will be a gift by a large group of people to someone on a special occasion. The person in question will be using the pen, so it needs to be known for its function in addition to any other qualities pens of this price range may possess. The price range would need to be anywhere from 300-600 (cost matters, it can't be cheap even if a cheaper pen is better, hey, I know).

Zojirushi travel mug: nonstick coating or electropolished steel

I'm about to order a Zojirushi travel mug for the commute. They have models with nonstick "polyflon" teflon-type interior coating, and models with a "Slicksteel" electropolished steel interior. Is there any risk to using the nonstick coating? Will it leech or flake off over time (on a timeline of multiple years), and is there any danger from that? If anyone has tried both, are the benefits of nonstick worth it?

Where can I get this tropical fabric or quilt cover?

I love this tropicana leaf doona cover / quilt cover. It is no longer available from Target Australia. Where can I get the same fabric (so I can make my own), or the same quilt cover from another source? I have tried to google an answer but to no avail. Any option must be available to ship to Australia.
