Not a ham shop, but if you're into amateur astronomy there's a wonderful
telescope shop half way between Baltimore and Washington in Laurel, Md.
See http://www.company7.com/ for info and directions.  About the only
place in the US you an see just about a complete display of fine
Astro-Physics refractors on display, including the very rare 8 inch
Starfire triplet.
