Two Possible Christmas Presents

Right now I have shopping (for America) on the brain. I didn't have a recipient for anything from two stores I just discovered, but you might:

1. The posters section of the Library of Congress online store has some gorgeous food-themed prints. The above reproduction of a 1941 print is available in three sizes, 8x10 ($28), 11x14 ($37), and 16x20 ($46).  So is this one:

2. I stopped by the Good Coffee Company, the long-lived, low-profile coffee roastery on Post Alley between Marion and Columbia that Chris Kornelis wrote up in the 2008 Best of Seattle issue. Owner Joe Kittay doesn't just roast beans, I discovered. He has a huge selection of new and used coffee equipment, which range from brass Turkish grinders to hand-pull espresso makers. Thing is, there are no prices on the objects, but Kittay seems like he's the kind of guy who would cut you a deal.
