I really like the idea of a physical Apple-esque store that sells fonts (and other typography related goods).
“Playtype.com, one of Europe’s preeminent online font foundries, has  opened a gorgeous brick-and-mortar shop in Copenhagen dedicated to  flogging digital typefaces. Customers can walk in off the street and buy fonts loaded on USBs that resemble little credit cards. The shop also sells a ragbag of typographic gifts and paraphernalia, including T-shirts, posters, and even wine.
E-Types, the Danish design  agency behind Playtype.com, bills the shop as “the first of its kind” in  the world. We can’t verify that, but it’s certainly a departure from  the standard practices of the day, in which type foundries, both big and  small, distribute their wares as downloads or via email.”
