People drop in to Pulp for an ironic-chic greeting card and find themselves picking up things they didn’t know they needed: the place has candles, masks, toys, and all manner of gag gifts for the hipsters and sophisticates who frequent the store’s lively neighborhood. The paper goods are excellent: not just occasion cards but boxes of fine-quality cotton notes, plus gorgeous wrapping paper by the sheet—and fancy ribbons to go with them. Friends having a baby? No problem. Need a present for more mature sensibilities? Pulp’s got you covered.
