MeFi Mall

Here's a list of MeFites who have stuff they make and sell online. If you're shopping anyway, check out the stuff your fellow MeFites have available. If you're a MetaFilter member with stuff for sale, you can submit your shop. There's more info in MetaTalk.

Photography, Prints and Calendars

  • mikepop: Posters, stickers, notebooks, socks (soon!) and other such things. I've taken a lot of my drawings and uploaded them (to Redbubble) so you can buy them on stuff. I'll be updating the shop soon with more and seasonal items. (If you want a drawing that's not in the shop, let me know and I'll add it)
  • moonmilk: Farm to Scanner: I have no idea how I got these veggies wedged into my scanner, or why. Beautiful images of fresh produce from the New York City Greenmarkets, made on a desktop scanner! Featured on metafilter 11 years ago and everyone hated it then, but I finally got around to making a shop and honestly it's really good: Mostly art prints, but you can also get a few things like pillows and phone cases. If there are any images or society6 products you want but don't see in the store, let me know.
  • ancillary: It's often the case that the .h264-encoded video vignettes of one's life, those moving memories recorded and tucked away on mobile phones everywhere, wonder wistfully what fate awaits them. Thankfully, FlipClips exist specifically to alleviate the melancholy felt by these forgotten digital video files, thrust aside by their jpeg brethren who are gleefully t-shirted, postage-stamped, and photo-mugged/booked/pooped. In a beautifully hand-crafted, perfect-bound paper flipbook, these personal video files can live forever, batteries not required. 15% off with coupon code mefi15.
  • millipede: Prints and originals of my artwork
  • gac: Unique fine-art prints, crafts, and zines from Philadelphia artists (including metafilter's own gac) at
  • bixfrankonis: Lemur. Cool. Now you can have your own art print of this exceedingly chill, so very relaxed, and, yes, quite real ring-tailed lemur from the Portland of Oregon. This is the one photograph I’ve shot in a decade and a half of an on-and-off, intermittent photography hobby that seemed practically to be begging for making prints available.
  • seanmpuckett: Robot drawings! That is, drawings made by a robot -- also known as a plotter -- that I designed and built. The instructions for the robot are created by software I also designed and built. Many of the drawings are based on photographs, many of which I took myself. These are not reproductions, you get actual robot drawings!
  • seemoorglass: I make joyful, colorful watercolor + ink originals, prints, stationery and more!

Recorded Music

  • ignignokt: I have a really long ambient concept album called The Sound of the Far Future. It starts with a lot of narration about events in our relatievly near future (10,000 to 1,000,000 years from now). Over time, the events become sparser and sparser, and the music gets gradually wilder and more entropic. Put it on while you shop or wrap presents or drink warm drinks with your loved ones in the warm, but temporary pocket of the present. Anyone who can't afford it for whatever reason and wants to download it can message me for a free copy, no questions asked.
  • chococat: Several albums worth of recent and not-so-recent recordings. It's delicious, homemade, independent basement pop just waiting for you at Send as a gift or enjoy for yourself!
