Would someone suggest a good rental/sales shop near LAX where I can get a couple of c-stands and sandbags quickly when I fly there in about 3 weeks? Thanks in advance!

The nearest place to LAX I know of for that stuff is the Samys camera on sepulveda. Here's a little copy from their website:

4411 Sepulveda Blvd.
Culver City, CA 90230
Tel: 310-450-4551
Fax: 310-450-8590
Hours: Mon-Fri: 9:00a-7:00p; Sat: 9:30a-6:00p; Sun:10:00a-5:00p

You might give them a quick call to make sure they stock what you want. I've never been to that location since the bigger main one is closer for me. If you're going toward Hollywood there's also Studio Depot, Mole Richardson's store, on La Brea and Willoughby.

Don't forget about NORM'S in North Hollywood. They make a great "travel" C-stand (that breaks apart) for travel. And at decent prices too.


5219 Craner Ave
North Hollywood, CA , 91601-3311
Phone: 818-766-6676

I'm actually headed south to Anaheim for the NAMM show. Are all of the relevant stores north of LAX?

Yeah. Those places tend to surround Hollywood and burbank. The Samys on Sepulveda is the closest to LAX. It's 6 and some miles. Mapquest directions.
