Shopping Scout: Saturday, July 19
Yearbook help: Shopping Scout receives many requests for high school yearbooks. Doris of Northampton and Gail of Coplay suggest that anyone looking for a yearbook should contact his or her high school to inquire if they have any extra copies of the year they are searching for. Sometimes yearbooks are given back to the high schools.
Laughs: Thomas of Bethlehem has been searching for the Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts on VHS. Vicky suggests he try www.deanmartinroasts.com. Susan of Allentown has the Bob Hope, Frank Sinatra and Ronald Reagan roasts on tape.
Peeps and chicks: Steve has information for Laura of Northampton about the peeps and chicks made by Tell Chocolate Corp., Staten Island, N.Y. The candy was not produced last year, but the company hopes to make it for Easter 2004. Check the company Web site hhtp://store.yahoo.com/tellchocolate/index/html for further updates.
White hot chocolate mix: Lorna of Orefield has a tin of Hazelnut Cream white hot chocolate mix that Vicki of Emmaus can have. Michele says Pelican Bay Ltd. (www.pelicanbayltd.com or 800-826-8982) of Florida carries this product.
Dishes: Jolynn has pieces of the Mikasa dinnerware in the Floribunda pattern that Nancy has been searching for.
Games: Byron of Allentown found the Pass the Pig game that Sherry was looking for at Spillane's Variety Store, 260 Delaware Ave., Palmerton, 610-826-7400. Sharon of Allentown also found this game online at boardgames.com and areyougame.com.
Readers are requesting items for the kitchen ranging from Ziploc bags to bread maker manuals.
Wide plastic wrap: Jenifer of Macungie needs the Reynold's Extra Wide Plastic Wrap. She says, ''It is perfect for large picnic trays.''
Mary is searching for an owner's manual for a Corningware stovetop percolator.
Martain of Bethlehem is looking for an instruction manual for a DAK Turbo Baker II bread maker.
Ziploc bags: Lyn of Bowmanstown is looking for the ''stand up'' Ziploc bags. They have pleated bottoms, which make them easy to fill.

Rolling pin: Jean of Bethlehem is looking for a 12-inch-by-3-inch marble rolling pin.
Yogurt maker: Alice of Northampton would like to find an electric yogurt maker. She knows her grandchildren would enjoy homemade yogurt.
Juice box holder: Susan of Allentown is looking for a juice-box holder. This is a plastic box that is put around a juice box so it doesn't spray when squeezed.
Dynabites: Sue of Salisbury Township is looking for broccoli and cheese Dynabites. She can't find them anywhere.
Soup base: Another reader, for which we have only an e-mail address, is looking for Talyano chicken flavor soup base.
