Los Angeles area boardbuilding supplies

Where is the best place to go in the LA area to get boardbuilding supplies and materials. I rather not do the mail order thing. Call mne old fashioned but would like to walk into a shop - maybe talk story and pick some brains - gain some knowledge and pick up all my stuff in one shot – blanks too, if such a place exists?

got there. brad runs the shop, not a master shaper, but you can still pick his brain. there’s also a few glassers in the same complex. they have a website too, look in the resources.

What about finding WALKER blanks in LA - will they sell single blanks to the private individual. If not, where do I go?
