4—FRIDAY, JUNE 12, 1998 ON THE MARKET CATOLOGS The easiest way to find household gizmos By SUSAN PRICE Los Angeles Times Syndicate W hen it comes to finding tools, accessories and just plain gizmos you need around the house, massing the time and energy to hit the mall can cause a case of serious procrastination. Thus, the increase in the use of mail order catalogs by time-stressed shoppers. Connoisseurs of catalogs know where to find the most hard-to-find things by letting their fingers do the walking. Here are some of the most useful: Finding the right style and size for household hardware can present some of the greatest challenges. That's where the Renovator's catalog comes in handy. You'll find antique-style sinks, tubs, shower rods and shower heads, hinges, latches, doorknobs and drawer pulls. Antique-style carpet runners and area rugs, floor registers and an old-fashioned, free-standing wash tub for the laundry room. For the outside of your house, there's everything from rooster weather vanes to carriage lamps and patriotic bunting in red, white and blue for the Fourth of July. Renovator's (1-800-659-2211) Looking for the right way to preserve and protect your photos and collectibles for posterity? The Archival Company Catalog offers all the safe materials for presentation and storage. This company provides archival-quality materials to libraries, museums and archives around the world. Acid-free and lignin-free paper and board, inert plastics such as Mylar D polyester, tarnish absorbing Pacific Silvercloth and chemical-free polypropy- lent are available here. You'll find scrap books, photo albums, pens with silver or gold or white ink, non-fading India ink pens and frame kits. There are also useful under-bed textile storage boxes, a box to store your silk top hat, boxes for phonograph records and for collections of miniatures. The Archival Company (1-800-442-7576) Levenger offers tools for serious readers and writers. Here you'll discover leather journal books, good lights for reading, leather covers to protect your paperback from getting dog-eared as you carry it around, a wrap-around writing desk that attaches to your favorite chair, a variety of globes, tufted leather chair cushions, the comfortable Herman Miller-designed task chair, bookcases, a unique laptop reading pillow to rest your book on, accessories for reading in bed and even a neat little clipper for excising articles from the newspaper. Levenger (1-800-544-0880) For the garden, Smith and Havvken has a catalog filled with exquisite gardening tools and accessories. Italian urns, trompe 1'oeil trellises and even a motorized plant sitter that waters your houseplants while you're away are here. When you water your own plants, you can do it with their copper watering can. You'll also want the perfect little English hand fork and trowel for digging in the garden and the bucket bag, which has a 35-pocket pack draped over a 5- gallon bucket and holds all your gardening tools. And in case you've been having trouble tracking down a Japanese Bonsai Care Kit, here's where you'll find it. Smith and Hawken (1-800-7763336) Hard-to-Find Tools is the name of another catalog that has just that. You'll also find an entire wrench set in one multi-wrench, palm-size ratchet set, a duster specially designed to dust the blades of ceiling fans and a clever little cup that insulates your outside faucets from freezing. For the gourmet outdoor chef, there's the 18-piece barbecue tool set. Need a stretchable cargo net to secure loads in the back of your pickup? They have it. Also for your car, there's a visor storage compartment that holds 12 CDs and a blind spot mirror popularized by Germans cruising the Autobahns at high speeds. There's even a new lightweight ax and a shock-absorbing snow shovel for those more physical outdoor chores. Hard-To- Find-Tools is an equipment freaks delight. (1-800-926-7000) The Edge Company Catalog has an appeal with a definite macho twist for the armchair James Bonds of the world, who'd rather dream of adventure than deal with what needs to be done around the house. Its enticements include the Navy SEAL Knife, described as a "black bolt of power. Slash. Pierce, Pry. Above water or below. Any place. Any climate." Or he may "join the company of gentlemen" with a burl-finish cigar humidor and a solid Italian marble cigar ashtray. Also available is a Zodiac command boat "tough enough for adventure," a Photosniper "cold-war spy camera never before available - or perhaps more useful - a Star Wars remote control "to control your TV and VCR from a galaxy far away."
