A Super Cool Store


I was reading a copy of Wired magazine at the gym this morning and came across an article about author David Eggers and his Superhero Supply Company store in Park Slope, Brooklyn. The superhero supply store functions as a retail space selling capes, jars of anti-matter, and superhero tights (packaged in metal canisters). What's even cooler is that the store is just a "front" for children writing workshops. Enter a secret passageway through the retail space to find 826NYC, a non-profit writing and tutoring center. Proceeds from the store help support the center. What a great idea!

I guess the superhero thing is an international trend then! I had just posted some superhero inspired products on my blog taken from stores in London when I came across this posting!
