Shopping by letters

A Google search that led someone to Orange Crate Art today had me puzzled:

things to buy at wal-mart that begin with the letter g
Well: gelatin, Geritol (yes, they still make Geritol), giblets, gin, ginger, ginger ale, glassware, glue, goat's milk, Goo-Gone, graham crackers, Grape-Nuts, grapes, gum.

Gosh, thought I: Google, like the cellphone, really is ruining self-reliance (which you can't buy at Wal-Mart).

Then I realized that I'd misread, misled by the underlined search URL in my blog stats. This Google search was for items beginning with the letter q. That's a bit more difficult. Here's what I've thought of: Q-Tips, quad-ruled pads, Queen CDs, queen-size sheets, Quiet Riot CDs, quinoa. And now I'll quit.

What else?

Quaker Oats
Quaker State Motor Oil
Quark (it's a kind of cheese)

Bravo, Elaine. But I think quark is sold only at hypothetical Wal-Marts.

Perhaps a Quilt? Quattro razors?
