The Pirate Supply Store, The Time Travel Mart
, The Superhero Supply Store, and a variety of other unusual storefronts have popped up around the country in recent years. The common threads? Whimsical products and being part of the nonprofit 826 National. Each store is actually a learning center for kids aged 6-18. Started by David Eggers, they’re a fantastic idea, and the crazy products sold generate funds to support the organization.
