There are no T-shirt booths or trinket stands at Burning Man.

We're not opposed to commerce, but believe that a vending environment diminishes participation. Likewise, you will not find any of the things we sell at a store conveniently near you (if you do, please let us know). We're not interested in mass merchandising.

Our motto: culture is based on communion, not on consumption. Instead, the medium of our marketplace is the Burning Man Journal (newsletter) and the website. These are our principle means of communication. The context of your purchase here is your involvement in our community. Proceeds from the sale of these goods subsidize our survival.
