The trading card industry is booming, and Cards and Coffee SLC is bringing the nostalgia to downtown Salt Lake City.
"This is a Utah card shop," said Jimmy Rex, a Cards and Coffee SLC co-owner and real estate expert.
Rex and his co-owners Jared Bringhurst, Kevin Trost, Jesse Christiansen and Emma-Lee Blotter, wanted to bring more than just a card shop to Salt Lake City — they wanted to bring an environment that everyone wanted to be a part of.
"You can walk in, not knowing anything at all, and we will walk you through the process," added Jared Bringhurst, another co-owner of the uniquely designed card shop. "Everybody can come in and find what they want."
The choices range from free cards to packs, vintage and rare cards, and even a $100,000 Kobe Bryant.
From Pokémon to Dragon Ball Z to Donovan Mitchell cards, Bringhurst says if you want it, they'll have it. And if not: "We have connections to source cards. We will be the people to go and find it for you."
Emma-Lee Blotter created an LA-chic interior design, while honoring Utah through the art on the wall by Gregory Stiff.
Cards and Coffee SLC is located directly across from Pioneer Park and open Monday-Friday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Whether you're looking to buy, sell, trade, or just feel the nostalgia, Cards and Coffee SLC wants you join "The Coffee Breakers."
