This is my first post here so sorry if I'm posting in the wrong part of the board! Over Christmas and the New Year I'll be staying in Los Angeles, specifically Torrance (and a few days in San Fransisco). It'll be my first time in America (I'm an Englishman living in Tokyo). What I want to know is: which are the best chain stores to visit? Are there any American exclusives I ought to get? Does anyone know of any stores that sell rare/vintage TFs in the Torrance area? And are there any good sales between the 24th December and the 4th January?
