Owners Bianca Bickmore and Michael Viglione upsized their tiny poster shop to a sprawling, all-things-paper store last year. The move made room for a larger stock of cute crafts, DIY kits and how-to books, as well as Kid Icarus’s own line of indie-cool greeting cards, notebooks and stationery. The best things, though, are the limited-edition poster advertising old tour dates for the likes of Ben Harper and the Arkells ($35). They’re made in the studio at the rear of the store, which is also home to a bustling wedding invitation business. The popular screen-printing workshops are run out of the store’s lower-level workshop.
