um, they have a skateshop on robson called vital. pretty nice stuff...obviously mostly sb's. they had the avengers way before seattle did. i haven't been there in awhile, but when i was last there, it was being remodeled. it's near the payless shoe source.
as for livestock, i like that place. def. hit up the place when they're havin' sales b/c they have good markdowns...usually 40% or more, good deals! get on their mailing list!
