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]
My partner is looking to put together a Maude Lebowski costume—specifically, from the scene where Maude first meets The Dude and is wearing the green robe with the huge lapels. Where can we obtain the necessary items? [more inside]
I need a lighter for my gas grill, but I can't just go to the dollar store. [more inside]
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.
It may be time for a new, used car...but what one? [more inside]
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?
I've been tasked with investigating pull-out sleeper sofas, which I know nothing about. If you own one and love it--if you have been a visitor in a place with a comfortable sofa bed--please give me specific style and/or brand recommendations. [more inside]
I went to El Rastro today and bought an antique weird little goblin/rabbit bottom metal box and an antique necklace. I have reverse google image searched and put in various text searches and found nothing on either of them. Any info you have on either one would be amazing! [more inside]
What are the best online sites to shop for baby clothes and gear (swaddles, baby alarms, cloth diapers etc.)? Must be EU-based (so there is no import VAT) and free or cheap shipping. [more inside]
I would like to get custom heat-transfer/heat-press vinyl T-shirts made in New York City this weekend, ideally with sparkly/glitter/metal flake lettering. Can you recommend a shop? [more inside]
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]
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).
I need to buy (or rent) 14" marquee letters, ideally locally in Seattle, from somewhere with a generous return policy. Alternatively, if I could have just the specific letters I need custom made that would work, too. [more inside]
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?
My wife and I have a tradition of getting each other anniversary gifts that creatively combine elements from the "traditional" and "modern" lists of presents. But this year, our seventh anniversary, is a stumper for me. The day approacheth rapidly, and I would love some suggestions! [more inside]
I'm looking for a place that sells verjus/verjuice (unfermented grape juice used in cooking), ideally in Oakland or Berkeley. Any suggestions? [more inside]
After 25 years of continuous education and training, I have a job that comes with a signing bonus! I would like to use a small portion to get myself something(s) nice - but I need help figuring out what to spend money on. [more inside]
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.
I'd like to help friends celebrate the adoption of their 8 year old daughter. [more inside]
Friends from overseas are asking me where to find "inexpensive souvenirs" in Boston. I'm kind of stumped, and suggested museums or the guys in the Common who sell t shirts... any other thoughts where to get souvenirs?
