While you still can't enter the store, you can now shop our abbreviated inventory on Wednesdays (10 AM - 6 PM) and Saturdays (8 AM - 3 PM). Follow our social media for information about special dates, cancellations, etc.
All customers MUST wear masks. If you don't have your own, we will provide one to you. Social distancing will be inforced. No more than 3 parties (of 3 or fewer) will be allowed inside the gate.
We address health, wealth, and quality of life issues through radical work.
