SEA has a branch of the Museum of Flight gift shop located at Boeing Field

ORD has a great aviation shop located underneath the Hilton. The have a huge collection of aircraft models, books, clothing, and other goodies. They also have lots of antique memorabelia including old timetables, playing cards, glasses, posters and so forth (I had a large timetable collection when I was a teenager and have been kicking myself ever since for throwing all that stuff out when I moved out of my Parent's house!)

IAD has one, i have not been to it but simply ran into an aviation shops website whose store location was in Dulles International. I think most airports have stores with metal pre assembled model airplanes in them but I am not sure which ones have an extensive selection or that are really big.

BWI has a Smithsonian Air and Space gift shop on the obeservation deck. Which was much to my chagrin after waiting in line 20 minutes a few days earlier at the gift shop in the museum.

SFO has one. I think it is in the circular part of the terminal that has two United Airlines piers branching out from it. There is a cafe in the middle of this place, if that helps.

Ha! Are you kidding!? Find one that doesn't! They get more money off that than they do off of the flights themselves!
