10:43 am - UK friends. . .
I have some friends in the UK who read LJ, and Tina, my roommate, is in dire need of British Liquid Measures.

Is there anyone over there who would be able to get me a set? She's particularly interested in the following:
British Liquid Measures
1 pint = 570 ml = 20 fl oz
1 breakfast cup = 10 fl oz = 1/2 pint
1 tea cup = 1/3 pint
1 tablespoon = 15 ml
1 dessertspoon = 10 ml
I will, of course, pay for 'em. Somehow. Either by trying to convert some cash to GBP's or sending something of equal value over to you.

Anyone willing to find these things for me?

I might be able to hook you up :-)

I'm going into town tomorrow, let me have a look for stuff.

So, basically the UK equivalent of the sort of measuring cups/spoons that I would use to make brownies in Cleveland?

Yes. She is particularly interested in making sure that all those kinds of measures are included in whatever "set" (if, indeed, they come in "sets" in the UK) she may get.

I'll write the whole list down once I submit this comment.

There's at least two kitchen type stores I know of in town - and since I need to go to the post office tomorrow, it's no trouble to stop in and see what I can find.

I'll email tomorrow evening and let you know what I've found. Or call, if I'm feeling ambitious.

Or if you have no luck, I should be able to get them here. Quality ranging from cheap studenty-stuff to quite nice, depending on what's wanted (lovely living in a uni town).

I've just added you as a friend, hope you don't mind! Found you when reading a LJ friends 'friends' page...if you follow that!

I'm Ember and I live in Scotland (UK) Just read this post, if you still need some UK measures, let me know, I am happy to help.

Welcome in, and pleasure to meet you. Out of curiosity, whose friends page were you reading?

We might still need the measures. I've had a response from a friend who is now back in the States, so we'll she what she's brought back and see if more is needed. I might take you (or others in this thread) up on it.

Ah-ha :) An interesting fellow to be sure. I recall seeing pix of him in a kilt recently. . .
