This ironic antidote to the digital age lures ink-stained locals with its journals, handmade pencil boxes and T-shirts printed with typewriter motifs. Check out the tiny under-the-stairs gallery showcasing zines from around the world, and don't miss the monthly letter-writing club (7pm, first Thursday of every month), where you can sip tea, munch cookies and hammer away on vintage typewriters.

If you have time, make your own pin badge or just browse the racks of hyper-cool greetings cards mostly fashioned by the store's friendly, art-school-grad co-owners. One of Vancouver most original stores, check out the little array of handmade self-published minibooks near the front window – where else can you read One Shrew Too Few and Secret Thoughts of a Plain Yellow House ?
