Like a watercolor postcard, but neither watercolor nor postcard

In tourist shops there are sometimes prints of watercolor or color pencil drawings of the city. The prints usually come in a bunch of sizes from postcard to 8x10. They cost a few dollars each. I'd like to purchase a bunch of these, but I can't find any online. They're out there, but my Google-Fu isn't finding them. I keep getting stymied at art supply shops and gallery pages. Can anyone find an online vendor for these? Thanks!

Please refer me to a music shop (either online or in the MSP area) that sells classic metronomes (classic-looking, that is - either wood or metal).

I'm going to get a 'customer loyalty card' from Bloom's (aka upscale Food-Lion) supermarket. The terms and conditions don't mention anything about the validity of the information, and I know enough about security and datamining that I don't want to distribute that information. Do they have a policy, or is there any way I could get caught using a fake name/address/telephone no, etc.?

My kingdom for a some narrow-calved boots!

I long for the carefree, halcyon days of my youth (or even my early 30s) in which boots regularly fit my legs snugly. Now, evidently, I am the last narrow-calved woman on the planet. Help me not have to wear the same boots for the fifth season in a row! [more inside]

Hand crank radio with Aux input?

Please find me a hand crank radio with an Aux input that allows me to plug in my ipod. It should also get the weather stations and I consider it a bonus if it offers cell phone charging. I would like the price to be under $50.00 but I am curious to see all options.

searching for the Best Stuff on Amazon

I enjoy finer things, and like to laugh at crappy stuff. Is there any way to search amazon to bring up the best or worst products (in a category or overall)? A list of "all 5-star products" would be too crude, so I'm thinking, search for the combination of higest rating with most reviews, or lowest rating with most reviews.

extended wristband

This question is dumb, (but so am I). I need to find a trivial bit of apparel but can't think of the most direct way of going about getting it. If you check out this video around 0:25 (or 2:13 here), I need that thingie on the bassist's wrist. It's like a wristband but it's thicker goes up the forearm a little more. Were you in the Boston area where would you go to find something like that that doesn't involve just random stores + hope?

How to plan a trip for a game demo?

I'm the co-creator of a new party game and my co-creators and I are stationed out of Madison. We've been invited to demo the game by an enthusiastic game store owner a few towns away, and so we've been wondering whether it makes sense to arrange a tour of the area metropolises (Minneapolis, Milwaukee, maybe Chicago). We're ramping up to the Christmas shopping season, and the game is going to start appearing at Barnes & Nobles soon, so on the one hand it seems like if we arrange something in advance with a store and simply show up there on the scheduled weekend, there's going to be a crowd, and we can try to attract shoppers' attention. But we can also perceive such a tour where we've planned it terribly, there's no store traffic and we've squandered our time and money. So: How to plan such a trip? [more inside]
