There's a new thing on eBay - for $5 you can order stuff from 80 Brooklyn stores and have it "hand-delivered by a local valet" at a time you choose.
Or you can save on shipping and just pick it up.
This includes stores from Prune Danish to Best Buy, according to eBay. You could order a simple pack of paper towels or an entire computer set up.
We haven't used this service yet -- this is not an endorsement! -- but as Christmas approaches it occurs to us it might be handy.
