Dear Franny: I am writing for my father, who has no Internet availability. He is looking for an electric percolator coffee pot, or maybe two of them. Do you know where he can get this? Virginia for Dad
Dear Virginia: Wal-Mart has a Presto 12-cup electric stainless-steel percolator for $37.52 and a Hamilton Beach 12-cup stainless-steel for $35.99. Try one of each!
Dear Franny: I would love to get a good set of pots and pans, not T-fal, but maybe circulon or anodized type. Any deals out there? - Harmon
Dear Harmon: Macy's has a Martha Stewart 12-piece anodized pot and pan set on sale today through Saturday: $69.99.
Dear Franny: Trying to find two or three jars of B&G Sour Pickles. Assistance would be appreciated. - Richbobbie
Dear Richbobbie: The reason you can't find them is B&G stopped making them. Your best bet may be getting lucky at dollar stores, Ollie's Bargain Outlet or Big Lots.
I emailed you B&G's contact email link. Perhaps they can help you.
