Can you recommend some scented candles?

I enjoy a nice scented candle. Some of my favorites have amber or oakmoss scents, but that's not a requirement. I've had great luck with Edgewater Candles, Ouro Hermetica and Big White Yeti, but I love trying new ones. I don't like candles that smell like food; no strong fruit smells and no vanilla. Do you have any favorites you can recommend? Bonus points for smaller shops, but also not a requirement.

Buying an Evening Gown in Canada

I'm in Canada (GTA region) and need to buy a formal evening gown for a wedding at the end of July. My budget is $350 (USD) or less. Most sites I have looked at only ship from overseas (or they have to make the dress before shipping), which means more delays/there's no guarantee it will be here in time for July 29. Where should I be shopping online? [more inside]

We are getting married next month and I would like a wedding cake topper that fits our courthouse ceremony and backyard reception, but that I can also treasure as a sentimental keepsake.

I want to give a granny a cart

A granny needs a cart to carry groceries several blocks. She has to walk across a lawn, but mostly will be on sidewalks with curb cuts, the sidewalks can be a bit uneven, and there is a low step at the threshold. I found this older question, but it was asked in 2015. Is the Rolser with 4 wheels, including 2 that swivel, still a good bet? [more inside]

Gifts for a catastrophe

You are my friend and everything is just the worst. Truly catastrophic outcomes on many fronts. Things are shockingly, numbingly bad and there isn’t anything anyone can do to change outcomes. You otherwise have a good support structure and practical needs met, so I send you a token of my affection. This token nods to how truly awful the situation is, but conveys love instead of pure horror and with any luck elicits a wry smile. It requires absolutely nothing of you. So friend, what did I send you and where did I buy it?

Now that I've been working from home for 2+ years, perhaps it's time to get a comfortable chair. Bonus: I'm moving my workspace into our about-to-be-completed basement that will be a combo workspace/playroom/hangout room, and would like a chair that fits the vibe. [more inside]

Help me find a rotational cipher (aka “secret decoder”) ring

I’m looking for a simple rotational cipher “secret decoder ring”. This would be a piece of jewelry that goes on a finger (as opposed to a flat disk) and has two sets of all the letters of the English alphabet (in alphabetical order), with one or both sets being able to rotate. This is intended as every day jewelry, so not wood or plastic. Stainless steel is a great price point, but I’m willing to spend more money on the right piece of jewelry. [more inside]

Help me find this specific rocks glass

I'm trying to find this exact glass, but would happily settle for anything relatively close. It's a normal sized rocks glass, and I remember once looking at the bottom and noticing a logo that looked like a simple crown, something like this, but maybe with 5 points. It feels impossible to search etsy/ebay for rocks glasses, as 9 out of 10 results are the personalized/engraved type, and I haven't seen anything just like it browsing the web... [more inside]
