  • Need help from the East Coast.

    I was born and raised in New York City and when I was very young my parents had a local Delicatessen. (Are there any anymore?)

    One of the home made specials was Manhattan Clam Chowder. That is the red one, not the New England white chowder.

    I cannot find it out here in the West (Arizona) so was wondering if someone on the East Coast would find Campbell Soup Manhattan Clam Chowder, either the condensed or Chunky, or both, and be able to send, say 6 cans, to me. I would be happy to pay for them and the postage.

      Hey John, You need to take a road trip to Newport Beach in Southern California! There is a restaurant called The Crab Cooker. They serve a Manhattan Clam Chowder that is to die for! They also sell it to go in a one quart container. But alas, they don't ship.

          I'll bet if you contact a local small grocer he could order in a case from his distributor for you. So long as you bought the entire case or he may consider carrying it in his store. I know when i managed a small corner grocery store years ago I would from time to time have special requests from customers and would order in items for them.

          It sure would not hurt to ask a couple of store managers near you. Try Safeway as well. Let me know if it works for you...k?

                  Problem solved. Too bad my idea would not work but it was a shot.

                    John, I know what you are going through. I have had problems getting things from the past, & Arizona is like a no-man's land when it comes to that. I even have to order wood for scrolling, because there are no places to buy it here. Lowes & Home Depot are not worth the bother. Can't get good fish here either. Coarse, my idea of good fish might be different from other people's. Hope you can get a load of it & enjoy it to the fullest. Good Luck

                      Some of the older books were that way too. It's unfortunate that the printers don't take into account what those pages are for! So sorry to hear of your disappointment. However, I will have to check out that book---I didn't even know there was a circular scroll saw designs book. Share some of...

                      Many patters in it I like and I'm sure I will make several BUT Fox Chapel's printing of this book absolutely SUCKS. Most of the patterns are printed so near into the binding that it is impossible to either scan to .PDF or use a copy machine. I will have to cut out each pattern separately or cut off...

                      Great Question.. I have all the past issues.. I doubt that I find one pattern a year that is worth the subscription cost. I have cut for the magazine and made a few buck that covers my costs,, But I owe that to Bob Duncan.. I think the new admins try but are not involved in this group like bob was.....

                      I am sure you know how important and relevant that comment is Rolf! I have seen a number of scroll sawn projects over the years at garage sales, thrift stores, etc. I know whoever made them put in a lot of...
