mortar and pestle [moved from LA]

i just wanted to share something i found in the store today.
i've been looking for granite mortar and pestle for awhile, since my exboyfriend suggested granite, and he's a geology professor, so i trust his judgment about rocks.
the ones i've been finding has been very pricey, around 50 dollars.
i saw these mortar and pestle today placed on a bottom shelf in 99 ranch market in van nuys while buying a portugese egg tart in a chinese supermarket, i like the egg tart at 99 ranch market.
anyways, an 8 inch set is only 13.99. i'm not sure if other 99 ranch markets have it, since they stock different things, but i bought mine in van nuys.
i bought it immediately and proceeded to go home and smoosh lots of peppers and yellow mustard seeds with it. it works great!
whee! so i'm making pesto tomorrow.. yum!
