If you find yourself with some time in Terminal One at LAX, wander over to grown-up toy store Brookstone for a free massage from one of their vibrating chairs. The quirky business started out with a small ad selling hard-to-find tools in Popular Mechanics Magazine and has since grown into a national chain, with most locations inside the malls and airports that we use every day. Despite the cluttered appearance of a Brookstone, knowledgeable staff tends to know exactly where things are and are more than happy to let you tinker with and try anything they offer. Odd finds mesh seamlessly with surprisingly innovative technologies and life-simplifying devices, each priced competitively, even for the airport. And for anyone in need of a last-minute doodad, Brookstone opens early and stays up late.
