Tunisian crochet hook sources?

Where do I buy aluminum or bamboo Tunisian (afghan) crochet hooks in Los Angeles? Alternatively, is there a reputable online source for them? I'm looking for something in the smaller sizes-- it's for a scarf, so no size-Q monster hooks. I've seen plastic ones here and there, but I'm tough on plastic hooks and would prefer to avoid them. Thanks!

Need help remembering a product from an old infomercial!

Does anyone remember an infomercial from the late 80s/early 90s that advertised a product that you could easily crochet "granny" squares? I think the squares actually popped off this thing and then you could sew them together. I can't remember the name of the product!
