    Pacific Northwest/Seattle-Portland?

    Aloha fellow OSW folks,

    I'll be visiting Seattle and also driving down to Portland in the coming weeks.


    Can anyone recommend brick and mortar stores in this region a 1/6th guy should go visit?


    I found a thread about Portland from 2008! Is Olympia Comics and Cards still a worthwhile detour?


    Any antique/vintage/collectible shops that may specialize in '60s action figures?


    We have very, very little in Hawaii now.


    Thank you!

    I think blackops works out of one of the two cities...(?), but they don't sell Olympia Comics.

    Thanks CobraTrooper!

    I've been a customer over the years, but I've always understood that while they operate out of Washington state (Freeland, right?), they have no true storefront.


    Has that changed?

    Cotswold is on Whidbey Island and I do believe it's just an online and not brick and mortar. There used to be Olympic Cards and Comics in Olympia Wa., but I haven't been there in years and they tended to be overpriced in my opinion. It seems as everything is online now a days and you might find a few stores that sell boxed figures, but usually for more than you can find at an online store. I think the days of walk in 1/6 stores are gone.
    I've heard the International district in Downtown Seattle might find some gems, but I have no idea honestly.
