After a career in corporate retail, Barbara Frenzel has opened her own elegant shop in Haddonfield, featuring lovely china, glassware, flatware and linens that you won't find in department stores, including this charming French import from the Gien collection.

- Maureen Fitzgerald

Millefleur square plate, $120, at the Polished Plate, 101 Kings Highway, Haddonfield, 856-428-2696. Bridal registry available.

Mountainous macaroons

Moist and chewy, these 3-ounce mounds of shredded coconut have barely enough binder to count as a cookie.

Do count them headliners hidden under LeBus' bushel of great breads.

- Marilynn Marter

Coconut macaroons (3 ounces), $1.25 each plain; $1.30 with chocolate chips. At LeBus Bakery, Reading Terminal Market, 12th & Arch, 215-592-0422 and 129 S. 18th St., 215-569-8299.

Truffles squared

Layered dark chocolate with a hint of fudge and milk chocolate flavored with hazelnuts - a combination so creamy and rich that these 1-inch blocks qualify as truffles in the buff.

- M.M.

Figaro by Asher, $14 a pound, at Pennsylvania General Store, Reading Terminal Market (12th & Arch, 215-569-8299) and other candy stores.
