Update:
24-10-2013 Compatible with Patch 1.63.

=================================================================================================
Recently I noticed that at the grocerystore, the Home tab always shows only 4 items (birthday cake, ducky, bubble bath & candle). So I think, wouldn't it be great if it has more items for sale, like newspaper or pizza. So I began searching and found this Shopping XML file that control which items can be sold in Home tab at the grocery. At first I began with adding Newspaper and it worked (but the price is $0, so I also modified Newspaper OBJD file and changed the price to $3). Later I try to add WA exclusive vacation objects (these items usually found at the general store in vacation world) and this also works too. At last, I also add pizza (the price is changed to $25).

Here are the list of WA vacation objects that I include:
Dried Food (LQ, MQ, HQ)
Shower In A Can
Tent (Cheap & Expensive)
Camera (Cheap, Medium, Expensive)
Snake Charming Basket
Fireworks Big Boom
Incense Holder (China, Egypt, France)
teddy Bear Mummy
Scooter
Bicycle (Adult & Child)
Fortune Cookie Maker (Placed in Family Inventory)
Training Dummy (Placed in Family Inventory)
Board Breaker (Placed in Family Inventory)
Treasure Chest (China, Egypt, France) (Placed in Family Inventory)
Nectar Maker (Placed in Family Inventory)
Nectar Rack (Cheap & Expensive) (Placed in Family Inventory)

Death flower, money tree seed & omni seed (separate version)

Adds number of objects buyable in grocery store -->
BaseGame: Easel, Laptop & Picnic Basket
GEN EP4: Canes (caneBall, caneLlama), Data Disc Storage & Camera Video (Cheap, Expensive), Sleeping Bag
PET EP5: Hay Stack
SHT EP6: MP3Player
SSN EP8: Snowboard (Adult, Child), Umbrella (Rain Disruptor)

I tested this mod in Sunset Valley and other EA worlds as well, and so far no problem for me.

Install:
Just put the package into your Mods\Packages folder.

Note:
For this mod, I modifies the Shopping XML file, Newspaper OBJD & the FoodPizza OBJD file, so it will conflict with any mod that modifies these same files.
If your screen is different from mine (notice the additional tabs), that's because I also use the Cooking Overhaul mod.

In order to use the easel in inventory, you must use this mod (also from me). This mod enable you can drag the easel (empty or not empty) in or out the inventory. All this time I don't aware of this issue, because I always use all my mods. And also no one report this issue until someone did (Thanks to instantmagic who report this)


Thanks:

Enjoy!

One other thing that you could have included is the country specific books. With all the problems traveling cause, i no longer risk losing my Sims by traveling. However I would still love to have the books, especially the recipe books and skill books such as nectar making. Can you try to add this feature to your Mod? It would be much appreciated.

A very cool Mod! In Sims 2 shopping was fun. In Sims 3? Nothing. It's a Rabbithole! The least EA could do is give a wider variety of merchandise to buy. I'd personally, love to have a nice selection of Ethnic Foods. And how about some of the other things one can buy while abroad...French Perfume, and French Fashions. Maybe we could buy some Chinese, hand-painted silks, exotic Chinese Teas, books about Zen and relaxation. How about beautiful Arabic head scarfs, and jeweled Hijab (head scarf) pins. Maybe our Sims could by a hand-woven prayer rug, or flavorful Arabic coffee. Perhaps we could buy a slender Turkish coffee pot, or a hand-painted, bone China Tea Service from England. There are so many possibilities. They really SHOULD be selling baby foods, and with the Pets expansion, pet food, and what about useful kitchen gadgets? I don't suppose we can expect much interest in this from EA. I'm glad we have talented Modders, like yourself who work to give the game we should have gotten from EA! Keep Designing!

Great mod, thank you!
Does the small portable objects , such as umbrellas, stereo or canes for elder sims, are available in the grocery? If no, I suppose, it would be useful too.

The stereo can't be added to grocery store (already tested and failed), but I added other EP objects buyable in grocery store. The list is below.

BaseGame: Easel, Laptop & Picnic Basket
GEN EP4: Canes (caneBall, caneLlama), Data Disc Storage & Camera Video (Cheap, Expensive)
SHT EP6: MP3Player

I already tried it when the cigarrete mod came out the first time, but it won't shown up in grocery.

Thanks for allowing us to choose between the one and the other with or without seeds. I like the idea of collecting seeds, so I like the one without!
Also, I hope this works, to the best of luck for anyone else too!
