C&H is highly recommended, especially if you're into surplus optics/
mechanics/pneumatics. It'll be disappointing if you expect computer
stuff. They do have some 60's and 70's vintage test gear, albeit

All Electronics has a retail store in Van Nuys, see The store has a lot of stuff that's
not in the catalog, some of it is computing related. I was always
impressed by the cheap electronics gadgets that they had.

Apex Electronics ( in San Fernando
always has some interesting stuff. Less consistent than C&H, but
that just means that you're likely to find something you weren't
expecting :-)
