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
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.

Just put the package into your Mods\Packages folder.

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)

You know that you can buy all of the WA items from home from entering "buydebug" in the cheat menu, right?

@Groosalugg: You can find them in this file "FullBuild0.package" located in this folder "C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\GameData\Shared\Packages".

Be careful, don't modify this file directly. Extract the OBJD file you want to any folder and modify it from there.

This mod still works with latest patches, although I don't have OLS yet.

@luvmug24: How odd. I really can't tell what your problem is. Please check it again, the Home tab in grocerystore. One more thing, did the buyable all fruits/fish work too?

I think that you must be have a mod conflict. Try check with Sim3 Dashboard. Where do you put your downloaded mods, in Documents or Program Files folder?

Or try this first. Please move all your mods out to temporary folder (like Desktop), then copy back these mods: Grocery mod (this mod), buyable all fruits and fish. Start the game, check the grocerystore and tell me the result.

One more question: You do have EP1 Word Adventures, right?

Haven't got patch 1.24 yet (it's so big, 650MB), so I can't confirm if this mod still compatible or not.
