Three-buck Chuck and cheap flower arrangements and pumpkin Newton bars and English cucumbers and tarragon chicken sandwiches and tri-tip roasts and oatmeal cups and spicy peanut vinaigrette and Chicago cheese-caramel popcorn and bubbly water and French lemonade and lemon verbena soap and triple ginger snaps and dirt-cheap cereal and soy milk and buffalo mozzarella balls and bibimbap and grapefruit soda and 99-cent greeting cards and water crackers and raspberry shortbread cookies and pesto Cheddar cheese and turkey meatballs and frozen quiche and sticky orange chicken and sweet corn tamales and frozen fish and grilled asparagus and, well, that's about half our usual shopping list.

Best Jefferson neighborhood grocery

»1. Dorignac's Food Center
710 Veterans Memorial Blvd., Metairie, (504) 834-8216; www.dorignacs.com
The time-warp charm of Dorignac's never gets old, from its Atomic Age sign overlooking Veterans Memorial Boulevard to the timeless feel inside. A recent spruce-up kept all the elements that make Dorignac's what it is: a huge bakery counter with New Orleans favorites; a butcher section with freshly cut meats; a deli with prepared treats (fresh pimiento dip!) and what seems like one bagger for each register. It's been in its current location catering to Jefferson and Orleans residents since 1963.

1514 St. Charles Ave., (504) 523-7027; www.townandcountrybridal.com
Bride meltdowns and frustrated mothers of the bride make for lively reality TV but are not what you want for your own wedding gown shopping experience. Mandy Schexnaydre Wienhusen, who owns and operates this Garden District bridal salon, helps brides say yes to the dress with personalized service — each bride is assigned a stylist and has a private viewing area — to keep the experience positive and help find the best sartorial match for each bride's personality, body shape, wedding venue, budget and personal aesthetic. The shop also sells accessories, bridesmaid and flower girl dresses and mother-of-the-bride attire. Designers include Paloma Blanca, Lazaro, Martina Liana (pictured), Badgley Mischka, Pronovias, Alvina Valenta, Stella York and more.

Gambit readers recommend Camp Bow Wow, a dog day care, boarding and grooming business with indoor and outdoor play yards for socializing, live web cams so pet owners can check on their dogs in real time 24 hours a day, a staff trained in dog CPR and other emergency measures, sleeping cots covered in fleece and individual attention from staff.

Best place to buy a gift

»1. Fleurty Girl
Citywide; www.fleurtygirl.net
A glut of T-shirts declaring NOLA pride burst on the scene in a post-Katrina surge of love for the Crescent City, but few have had the staying power of those designed by Fleurty Girl. After Storyville folded early this year, Fleurty Girl bought its catalog of designs, swelling its own sartorial portfolio. But the five retail shops — soon to be seven with the opening of two stores: one in Lakeside Shopping Center in time for the holidays and one in the Louis Armstrong International Airport expansion in 2019 — sell so much more than clothing. From a "Big Freedia in my Pocket" ("you already knooooow") to beignet-flavored lip balm and ghost repellent candles, the boutiques have nearly every New Orleans-themed gift you can dream of — including socks by New Orleans-based Bonfolk Collective and a streetcar-shaped chew toy for the pups.

Most confections from Sucre seem too pretty to eat (well, almost): There are delicate macarons in celadon, lavender and canary yellow; house-made pink marshmallows dusted with a faint glitter; exquisite molded chocolates in droll flavors such as "magnolia" (pecan ganache in dark chocolate with candied pecans) and peanut butter and jelly. There also are decadent cupcakes, pastries such as tiramisu and extra-dark hot chocolate for grown-ups. Pre-packed boxes of chocolates and macarons make nice hostess gifts, and the store ships nationwide, including its ornately decorated king cakes during Carnival. A few scoops of rich gelato in ever-more creative flavors (coconut basil, white peach Bellini) will tide you over so you don't eat everything you bought on the way home.
