Superhero Supply Store

As a follow up to this post about the Pirate Supply Store in California... you will be pleased to know that you can now buy Superhero supplies in Brooklyn. The Superhero store is also part of the 826 initiative to encourage creative writing skills in students. Again, there is an amazing storefront selling the necessities that all great superheros need. Plus they have useful tools such as a cape-testing area. I mean, how could a superhero shop anywhere else?

The design of the store and packaging is fantastic, and perfect for the subject matter. It was designed by Sam Potts. He did a stellar job. This looks like the type of project that every designer dreams of.

I love, love, LOVE this print by Rebecca Puig of Sugarboo Designs. Sugarboo creates beautiful rustic prints and home decor. Everything has a crafted feel about it. This particular pieces contains a quote is by Emily Dickinson, and has always been one of my favorites. It can be purchased from Pottery Barn Kids.

"Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul, and sings the tune without the words, and never stops at all."
