We have a maximum product range of 1000 which we expect will change over six month periods of promotion. The only limitations we have on the shop are items prohibited under peace treaty agreements. Artists are welcome to submit items of artistic merit, but they must have no previous owners, e.g. they must be authentic items made by the artist for the community. This means for example you can submit any item for inclusion from a packet of bubble bath to a laser pen. We do not charge for listing items.

Please note that we will be actively advertising the site on a day to day basis via mail lists, (except when there are service issues with ISP's or third party service providers), so we earn anything we make and in fact it costs us to do this so we feel this is an excellent opportunity for goods and service providers to join in at a ground level entry.
