Headed back to in time? There’s a store for that (15 Photos)

The Echo Park Time Travel Mart in California is one of the coolest stores around. And not just because you can pick up a bottle of Barbarian Repellent in case you're attacked by Vikings in 10th Century Scandinavia, but because all proceeds from sales go to support kids creative writing. Yep, it's not just a huge tourist destination, the place offers tutoring for kids in English 7 days a week.

    $14.99 for a bottle of H2O….seems legit! Why don't they have "Hammer Pants"?

      Hammer's Mom must have gone back in time and had an abortion, thus changing the future forever.

    Perfect. I could have used Barbarian Repellent next week.

      I read your reply today after you read it in the future. That makes me a time equilibrium expert.

        Whaaat? I'm not sober enough for this to make sense to me.

    As a beard-weilding-ginger who occasionally adorns a viking helmet, I am offended that I am now known as a "Barbarian". I prefer the term "Pillaging American".

      I personally find it offensive when people refer to me simply as "Pirate." That is OUR word. You have NO right to use it against us.

      We prefer "Grand Theft Entrepreneurs" or "Ship Going Economic Stabilizers"

    As long as they don't sell acid-washed jeans from the 80's, I'm there.

  • Underhill

    It's a franchise. Open your own Time Travel Mart. You have to want to teach kids to read –to there–in time.
