Where to buy a Benriner mandoline in Atlanta?

I've seen various posts about the Asian markets in Atlanta, but are any of them the kind of place you could find gadgets like Benriner mandolines? A local Asian market where we live used to carry both the Regular and Super Benriner but now only have the regular. I'd really like to see the two side-by-side to compare.
We're making a trip to Atlanta tomorrow, so I may be too late in posting this.
Buford Hwy Farmer's Mkt may be your best bet. They seem to have a lot of housewares (at least a good bit of real estate devoted to them). Super H has some housewares, too, and is just one exit over. That's where I'd look.
Just in case anyone checks this out in the future, I found the Regular Benriner and Super Benriner at Mega Mart in Duluth. The Super H Mart nearby had the regular Benriner for a good price: $24.99.
I ended up not buying either one as I decided to buy it locally from a small Asian grocery. But I accomplished my mission: I really wanted to see how the Super Benriner compared to the regular. It really is much bigger, but I can't really understand why it should be double in price. Since most professional chefs seem to make due with the smaller one, I'll try that first.
