i shouldn't tell the world, at least judy's book readers this... it's a great secret!
but there is a chocolate and fruit manufacturer in the outskirts of downtown LA that have the best and cheapest chocolates and fruit jells and they even have bottles of wine and margarita mixes!
they are open 7-3:30 and very conveniently located if a lilttle grungy... but again well worth the prices fir the trip...
i frequent this place about once every 2 months as well, esp around the holidays! it's so easy to hop in and out and have about 10 presents for shopping done already! and what i don't have i combine several boxes to make a nice big basket!
i love this place!
