Regular followers of thestevestrout.com have probably caught wind of my push to promote great comic shops, gaming shops, arcades, anime stores, and other awesome nerd and pop culture establishments. We recently visited one of the coolest shops around, the Retro Emporium in Kent, WA.
The shop is PACKED wall to wall with everything from vintage Garbage Pail Kids and A-Team trading cards, retro gaming gear and wear, to comics, toys and pop culture memorabilia. That's just the tip of the iceberg. They even have a mini arcade set up with quarter-op machines!
