Where can I find a quality women's corduroy blazer in San Fran?

I've got an unexpected day free in San Francisco tomorrow and I'd like to do some shopping. One thing I haven't been able to find back home in Sydney is a nice corduroy women's blazer. I had one years ago in a lovely dusty pink and I wore it til it fell apart. Anybody know if they're "in" this spring and where I can find one in the city? (Colour doesn't really matter.)

What Bay Area stores carry the Dell Adamo?

Where can I see a Dell Adamo (not the new XPS, but the one that was released last year) in person, in the San Francisco Bay Area? Frys doesn't seem to carry it, and I don't know who else would. I'm considering buying one, and want to handle it and check out the keyboard, weight, etc., in person, before making a decision. Thanks for any help you can provide :-)

Looking for manual typewriter in San Francisco

Reading this thread has rekindled my interest in acquiring an old manual typewriter. How much should I expect to pay for a typewriter in good working order? Are there any characteristics I should consider beyond ease of typing and appearance? Can anyone recommend a good place to look in the San Francisco area?
