If you're a temporal traveler stuck between decades and you find yourself in need of Mammoth Chunks, Anti-Robot Fluid, or Barbarian Repellent, you can now head to Time Travel Mart in Echo Park, Los Angeles. They'll probably have it in stock. Unfortunately, you'll have to come back yesterday if you want something from the Time-Freezy Hyper Slush machine — that's the last time it was working properly. No problem! You're a busy time traveler, but everybody needs a hyper slushie. Find out more inside, and check out our gallery of chronolistic goodness.
Author Dave Eggers of McSweeneys and A Heartbreaking Work Of Staggering Genius started 826 Valencia in San Francisco as a tutoring and writing center for students, and they now have locations in New York, Los Angeles, Michigan, Chicago, Boston, and Seattle, with more coming soon. Many of the locations feature themed stores that generate both traffic and money for the non-profit centers: San Francisco has a pirate store, New York has a superhero goods company, Seattle has a space travel supply company, and now Los Angeles has a time travel mart.
