Also in Ventura--I was browsing around a vast antique store and I found a mug which, by way of fine print, sported a small cautionary sticker which said something like this:
Warning: The glaze used on this item contains lead which is known to cause serious damage to health.
Then, below it:
This warning does not apply outside the state of California
I knew I should have stayed in Vancouver; it's ever so much safer there.
