The Kid Icarus storefront is full of Canadian handmade goods from Vancouver to Halifax, and everything in between, with the majority of products coming from the neigbourhoods that make up the Greater Toronto Area. The pursuit for products printed in antiquated or traditional methods also brings in Letterpress cards from a few places in the United States as well.
Along side the carefully curated selection of handmade items is our own line of greeting cards, gift wrap and original hand printed items. Each piece is designed and printed with quality in mind, resulting in a unique style that fits the aesthetic of the shop.
