Vinyl Solution: For vinyl collectors
I used to visit this place every month after a trip to the monthly Orange County Record Show in Buena Park.
It's been a couple of years since my last visit, and I don't know what the selection's like since ebay has changed everything, but last time I checked, it was a great place to look for rare records, especially if you're looking for anything indie or punk.
What to pay: As much as your wallet or plastic can take. ;-)

Euro Market Bakery & Deli: Miss European food?
I guess if I begin to miss German products, I can go there for a bit home feeling. You can also order the products online from the website listed below.
What to buy: It's supposed to be European products, but I saw especially many German ones such as breads, candies, coffies, chocolate candies, etc The also sell a few German language magazines.
What to pay: Since many of the products are imported, prices tend to be higher.
