“Dear Yenta, Where can I buy “retractable gates” for kid’s safety in my house?”

Family first on Sepulveda is a great store for all things baby…or you can always check out craigslist. But, the best and safest idea is to hire a reliable company like Boo Boo Busters to come and baby-proof your entire home. Many times they have great gates you cannot buy retail.

“Dear Yenta, I’m looking for a place to do letterpress printing.Help!”

You go it!  Here are some terrific resources:

Soolip and Sugar Paper are two fabulous stationery stores that do letterpress.

Aardvark Letterpress is a custom letterpress studio

Restaurant Supply Stores – open to the public
 

I don’t know why I don’t shop in these stores more often – it’s always so much fun to look around and you always find something you never knew you absolutely needed. So why go to Crate and Barrel for plain white dishes when you go to one of these stores (listed below) for professional kitchen wares in the home and get a total deal!!

Surfas in Culver City – a full restaurant supplier with baking items and a large gourmet food section.

Dish Factory in downton Los Angeles – have the largest china inventory in the western United States and glassware at discount prices.
Star Kitchen in Van Nuys – open since 1963, they have everything for commercial and non-commercial food service operations.
