Where to shop to get your summer rental ready

Dear Franny The Shopaholic: I need a deal on dishes and silverware for my summer rental property. — Joseph V., Wildwood/Philadelphia

Dear Joseph: At Boscov’s, get Gibson Stainless Steel 20-piece service-for-four flatware sets in three styles regularly $19.99 on sale for $5.99. Boscov’s also has 15 styles of dinnerware sets for four by Tabletops Unlimited, Gibson or Oneida less than half price for $19.99. At that price buy some extra, and store for next year in case of breakage. In case you need water and wine glasses, Dollar Tree is your best bet.

Dear Franny The Shopaholic: My grandpop wants an old-fashioned webbed beach folding chair that has a higher back. I can’t find anything even with a regular-size back. I even wonder if they still make that type. I would like to have it for Father’s Day. — Favorite Granddaughter

Dear Favorite Granddaughter: The Vermont Country Store sells both the regular American-Made Webbed Aluminum Lawn Chair for $59.95 and the Deluxe with the higher back for $69.95. They also sell the replacement webbing for $19.95. Call 800-564-4623 or go to www.ver

Dear Franny The Shopaholic: You are amazing at finding the obscure. I was wondering if you could find the dish-liquid bottle that has a flat convenience top. The type you lightly press your fingertips on top and the liquid comes up from the bottle. Not the type you have to turn the bottle over. My sister has one but there are no markings on it whatsoever. Good luck and thanks! — Carol M., Margate

Dear Franny The Shopaholic: Thank you. I did find quite a few of which I emailed you the links to. The least expensive is at IKEA for $5.99. A super-size, no-touch stainless steel dispenser is at for $26.99.

Dear Franny The Shopaholic: Please find me a good deal on a stainless steel dishwasher. — Paul W.

Dear Paul: Sears has on sale a Kenmore or a Fridgidaire stainless steel dishwasher on sale for $249.99. I emailed you the links. You might want to wait until next weekend for the big Memorial Day sales to see if you can do better.
