The guys at gateway have the building next door full of inventory, and if you
get friendly with the right fellow at the counter, you can get a tour of that
and see a bit of other stuff. Just ask what they have, and indicate you made
a special trip in from some distance and I have found they accomodate me
and dig a bit so that I don't miss any "new" stuff.

but then I've been coming there since they were on Delmar and Stu had just
started it (maybe 35 years ago).

Sadly Stu passed away a couple of years ago, and is sorely missed.

on a slightly different topic.

Gateway has a San Diego outlet that has some stuff, and there is also a place
nearby there worth seeing in San Diego called Industrial Liquidators.

I also dig out the listings for the guys in El Cajon when I go down there

Any other San diego places to see?
