Camera stores in Seattle and Portland, suggestions?

I'm looking to nerd out on cameras in Portland and Seattle, suggestions?

I'm travelling to Portland and Seattle over the next week or so and looking for a camera store to pick up a new Fuji X100, but would also like to look around a few old camera stores with old used cameras and lenses, even vintage junk store stuff. Welcoming suggestions for either of the above.

In Portland: Pro Photo Supply. Terrific selection, friendly, helpful staff. Highly recommended for novices to professionals.

In Seattle there are precious few but in Seattle proper there's Glazer's Camera and, in the Kenmore suburb due a few miles northeast of downtown Seattle is Kenmore Camera.

I'd email Chase Jarvis... he might have some ideas. And hopefully you can get your hands on the x100 - its helped my 5DmkII gather dust lately.

mmmmm, Blue Moon. Then pop down the block to James John for some snack and drink.

Second Pro Photo Supply, you might also check out Citizens Photo.

Fremont in Seattle has a ton of vintage/antique stores, many of which have collections of weird old cameras. Don't have any particular stores to recommend, though.
