Whatever kind of paper product you're looking for, you'll find it at Paper Plus. A little establishment right in an industrial section of El Cajon, it looks like nothing from the outside. Upon entering it's nothing classy, just shelves of paper products at great prices. You buy in bulk but save so much.
Any size of ziploc bags that you're looking for, they have here. Same with poster mailing tubes and boxes. You can also buy huge rolls of bubble wrap here at great prices compared to other retail stores.
If you use high end products for your hair, and you don't want to spend the high salon price, then Empire Beauty is for you. Quite a few locations to choose from, this is by far my favorite.
Prices on shampoo and conditioner is much cheaper than other salons and they carry most name brands. You can find discount coupons in the free coupon packs that come in the mail or sometimes on the back of your grocery store receipt.
If you don't know about Empire, where have you been?
Serious folks that know the railroad hobby know about this store! I make it a point to visit this store whenver I'm in the area, even if I don't need a thing.
The front rooms are crammed with model trains, landscaping detail, balsa wood for the do-it-yourself perfectionists, videos, magazines, and "railroadiana" of all kinds: signs (big ones), lanterns, collectibles, and hats.
It's a train lovers dream. You must check it out when in the area.

Experience cool ocean breezes, warm sand, and exotic Pacific Ocean sunsets while enjoying affordable and comfortable guest rooms and friendly service.
Definitely a place to stay, if not to check out the tropical and polynesian grounds.
Built in 1966, this Polynesian Hotel sits right next to the 8 freeway. Tons o Tiki to be found here, to many for me to count. Having 2 restaurants, Sushi Bar and a lounge. The Islands restaurant is located next to the lobby and is a Tiki haven. With Tiki's from the famous Outrigger and The Luau finding sanctuary here. A huge Moai serves as the lifeguard, sitting next to the swimming pool. Great location, literally minutes from the Zoo, Old Town, the beach, Shelter Island and Sea World.

Track 16 gallery is another gallery that specializes in low brow artists. Typically they debut a new show every six weeks so it's worth it to check out this gallery every few months. Located in Santa Monica, you're surrounded by other galleries so it's always a plus to check this gallery out.
Parking can be at a premium so be sure to plan ahead. You should check out this gallery at least once in your gallery career.
This gallery in Los Angeles is all about the low brow artists along with up and coming artists. They deal in names that you won't find in most magazines "yet" and it's very interesting. I wouldn't choose to attend a gallery opening at this time at this location but there are some artists displayed here that may be the next Warhol.
If you're doing a museum tour, this is one to check out or in your spare time.
I just returned from visiting PA and visiting this museum. I have to say that this museum is outstanding. The day was hot and muggy and I wasn't sure if it was worth it to make the trek to see this museum. Boy was I surprised! This museum is huge and offers lots of rare items to look at. It took nearly 2 hours to tour the whole museum!
This was my first visit but definitely not my last. Check it out whenever you're in the area.
