I love Trader Joe's, both for things that are hard to find at mainstream grocery stores, and more ordinary things. For the selection of gourmet things that they carry, you would think that their prices would be high. Not so - everything is very reasonably priced and I love the atmosphere of the store. They have great deals on wine - I will often pick up a couple of bottes of "three buck Chuck: (Charles Shaw wine for $2.99) just to keep on hand for everyday table wine. It's not half bad!
