At 1923 Main Street® we love superheroes and villains, but we found that it wasn't always easy to find unique heroes and villains merchandise in Canada. So we set out to change that and made it our mission to find the best heroes and villains gear out there and to bring it to everyone in Canada here at 1923MainStreet.com.
Our mission at 1923 Main Street® is to source out stylish and unique officially-licensed products from great brands such as Disney, Star Wars, Wonder Woman, Marvel Comics, DC Comics, Harry Potter and more.
We're a young, fun company that loves to search for quality (sometimes quirky) licensed merchandise that you won't find everywhere else. We look for the kinds of things that we love ourselves and we aim for quality materials and designs that are a cut above the branded merchandise offered at big box stores and other places.
1923 Main Street® was founded by me (Mike Belobradic) in 2013.
The company began as a Disney travel information source, based on my 40-plus years (and hundreds of weeks' worth) of Disney travel experience -- including authoring a Disney travel guide. In serving the needs of thousands of Disney travelers across Canada (our home country) and beyond, I would create and curate products and services to help people make the most of their Disney vacations.
And that is where the idea for an online shop like this one this first began.
In fact, the name 1923 Main Street is a combination of two Disney-related themes: 1923 is the year that the Disney Company was founded by Walt Disney. Main Street pays homage to Main Street U.S.A., which anchors many Disney Parks and represented the wholesome family values that Walt Disney was trying to achieve in creating family-friendly destinations.
Over time, my love of the Disney brand – and other related pop culture brands – led to the rebirth of 1923 Main Street® as the online shop that it is today. I have spent a good deal of my time over the years searching for standout licensed products, so launching 1923mainstreet.com to share these items with other fans just made good sense.
So thank you for visiting 1923MainStreet.com and for taking the time to browse around. I hope you find something that catches your attention and imagination.
At 1923 Main Street®, we buy and sell what we love: premium, collectible licensed merchandise that often has a bit of an edge. Who says licensed merchandise is just for kids?
Our inventory is constantly changing and updating, so many things don't stay around for too long. We do our best to stock up on popular items, but when they're gone, they're gone. So if you see something that you like, don't wait too long to decide.
We hand pick everything that we sell for each brand category that we carry. We aim to help you make a subtle (or bold) statement with confidence and style for the brands that you love.
Most importantly of all is that we take customer service very seriously. If you have any questions or concerns, we are here to help and answer all of your questions. So please do not hesitate to reach out. We want all of our customers to be 100% satisfied when they shop here. I treat my customers the way that I expect to be treated myself. You have my word on it.
We also love to get feedback here. So if there's something you'd love to see at 1923 Main Street, please drop us a line to say hello and let us know. We'll always do our best to see what we can find that is new and exciting for you.
