First, stop by Reading Frenzy. It's one of the first magazine stores that stocks 'zines (small magazines dealing with specialized subjects-from collecting Menudo dolls to starting a revolution-and printed in small presses or zeroxed) exclusively. Also, a wall of small press books that can't be found anywhere else. Upstairs is the IPRC, or Independant Publishing Resource Center, a not for profit resource center for making your own zine. This is where some serious creativity happens. They have all sorts of resources available. See their website under "other". Two doors down is another pulp shop called Counter Culture. This one sells all kinds of media, but specializes in erotica from the fifties.

What to pay: A few bucks

Address: 925 SW OAK
Directions: In the shopping center at SW tenth and Oak, Between Crowsenberg's and The Thai Peacock.
