By far, my favorite place to shop at in LA is Del and Sue Howison’s awesome horror-themed shop, Dark Delicacies. I’ve been going there regularly for about five years now and it’s always fun. What makes Dark Del such a cool shop is that aside from their very impressive stock of books, movies, posters, toys, etc..Del brings some pretty awesome signings to the store multiple times a week, giving horror fans a chance to meet and get their favorite items signed by the people whom they love.
Icons of Fright head honcho, Rob G did a shop visit to Dark Del a while back, check it out:
