Today, I went to the Tintin store in San Francisco, California, U.S.A. I got the Red Rackham's Treasure book. They had figures of Tintin, Nestor, Bianca Castafiore, the Thomsons, and Captain Haddock, as well as a life-sized Snowy. But the T-shirts cost $40!!!

Address: 432 Sutter Street, Financial District, San Francisco, California, U.S.A.

Can you remember the name of the shop, Miloumuttmitt? I did a quick search on the Web just now, and found 432 Sutter Street pointing to an art gallery, the Cohen-Rese Gallery.

There is an entry for a Tintin shop, Kari'kter', located at 418 Sutter Street in San Francisco in our Tintin Shops Directory, but I am not sure if the shop is still around, because their posh looking web site seems to have disappeared. I also do not know if Kari'kter's New York branch is still open.

Oh, yes. I forgot the number. It was 418, now that I remember...
And it is called Kari'kter' and is still open.

I just went to the Kar'ikter store in New York. It's still open, so you may want to change it in the Tintin Stores Section.

Done! Many thanks, Gustav. :) I have also added the Tintin Shop in Stockholm's old town to our directory.
