#1175762 Where to buy stuff around Seattle

Posted by tsquare on 14 January 2012 - 05:01 AM

We stopped in at ChefShop last week and they had a few new olive oils out for tasting. Also vinegars, honeys, and salts. But get the shoyu.

I guess I'm the only one who doesn't like chefshop. Nothing is priced. Everything I look at I have to ask how much, and after the third time I don't feel like asking any more. I'm in and out in five minutes.

Yeah, we asked them about that too. 90% of what they sell is on-line and much of that is gifts - so they don't like pricing the individual items. The shelves and displays change often, so they don't tag those either. I wish they handled it differently too (they used to.)

Well, it's going to happen, second half of this month. All I know is we are flying in and out of Palermo (some day I will get the hang of returning from another city. Maybe not.)

We've got Lonely Planet and the internet. The two recent NY Times pieces (Addiopizzo article and Almond Granita sidebar). No car. Nope, not doing it. Had a line on a private tour guide, but that would double the cost of the trip, so we'll take it slow and easy and miss a lot.

Recommendations welcome.

That pales to what Pete writes in Seattle - and what gets left up!

That guy is horrible! I'm shocked so much of his stuff doesn't get deleted.

He recently signed up as a commenter on the Seattle Times as well - in case you need more of his crazy. Something Piper something. You'll recognize him easily.

Regular-season pro football starts on Sunday. That not coincidentally kicks off my season of f-d up weekend traffic in this area.

It's already making me jump through hoops if I want to get to a music festival on Sunday. :angry:

Sometimes you sound like a 60+ year old and sometimes I am convinced you are half that. IMHO that's a pretty good thing.

Scotchguarded or something else?

Something else - almost like a liquid plastic coating. I thought it was weird, but that's what they wanted for seating for the two small kids.
