I'm looking for recommendations for a store in Los Angeles (Hollywood if possible) that has a wide selection of lightbulbs and fluorescents. Not your average hardware store, but a place that stocks high CRI tubes and halogen bulbs in all those unusual fittings we use so often. I need to make up some lamps for a forthcoming project, and so far haven't been able to find anywhere with a reasonable selection. I'd like to avoid film & tv suppliers if possible.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Damn, I know I drove by exactly what you're looking for about 2-3 weeks ago. A little East of Beverly Hills on maybe Santa Monica or Wilshire.... Definitely an East-West street, and on the North side. The store is stuffed full of nothing but bulbs, and it's for exotic decorator stuff more than professional movie stuff..... I was going someplace, or I would have stopped.
