Where can I get an 8 star pie cutter locally? I tried Ming Wo and Russel's but they only carry the pie markers, tried ordering it from GFS but its discontinued.

This model you can get any any honger place that sells this shiet. I'll just start off with a few.

- Crystal Mall upstairs beside food court
- Abderdeen also has 1 or 2 stores at least that sell these
- Parker Place
- Metrotown outside T&T i think the store that sells car stuff is still there


Your options are endless.

You can try calling Gourmet Warehouse on Hastings. Next to the old Canadian Tire.

Cookware Vancouver | Kitchen Utensils Vancouver | Bakeware Vancouver | The Gourmet Warehouse


BTW, that's a seven section one in the pic.........

KMS Tools in Coquitlam near Soundsgood and Ikea.

Their "buy sockets by the pound" section in the back is where you want to go. Cheap stuff, but who cares. The back part of the store is full of discontinued and used, tools and gadgets. Every guy should go there at least once in their lifetime, LOL.

Edit: I was just thinking.......... are you having difficulty finding 1/8 inch socket for lets say, 3/8 or 1/2 inch ratchet? If so, I believe the 1/8 is only made for 1/4 inch ratchets. You need an adapter, unless you want to buy a whole set, which is what I would recommend.

I doubt it, since $1K is a pretty "low" figure for them or any other furniture store, and none of them generally offer free delivery.

I'm looking for some swimming gear, like cap/goggles/earplugs/noseplugs locally.
Are there any swimming-specific shops in Vancouver that sell these? I want to look at a good selection, quality and also good value ones.

The Swim Co. shop in the mall is for swimming suits and overpriced accessories isn't it?
Or am I suppose to just go to Sportcheck?.. do they have everything?
