A collection of shops with a story

One day I was reading the book "The Fortune Cookie Principle" (Bernadette Jiwa) and really liked all the various business examples it contains, from beautifully designed tattos to garbage boxed and sold as souvenir. So I started compiling a list of businesses with a nice story, curious products or simply catering to a small niche or subculture.
If you do know any, please add it to the list.
