Found it: 322 E 11th St (between 1st and 2nd avenues)

Why we went in: ‘Stamp store? Cool! Maybe they’ll have a shark stamp.’

Inside: John Casey, owner of Casey Rubber Stamps formerly known as J.C. Casey Design Rubber Stamps, pictured above, understandably changes his favorite stamp often. Today, he points to the faucet.

1.’God’s Gifts’ is not the name of this store.

2. They do have a shark stamp. At approximately 9 inches long the shark stamp is too large for any practical stamp usage.

3. Stamp Ink Facts: Plum and burgundy are the same color. Blue and periwinkle are the same color. Orchid and hot pink are slightly different colors.

4. The closest ATM is at 2nd avenue and 10th street.
