Emporium of Real Things


Hear ye, hear ye! Welcome to Emcee C.M.’s Emporium of Real Things.

Buy here to support the work that I do (and the life that I live), and you will get things that I have made with my own two hands. Your support allows me to keep doing voluntary civic engagement and land stewardship projects, and also to make things that are beautiful and/or interesting simply on their own merit. For examples of the types of  work I do, and the types of art I make, just browse around on this site. If you scroll down to the bottom you will find some sweet treats to eat that I made too.

Everything in the Emporium is for sale on a sliding scale. Click here to view the sliding scale price chart and decide what price is meant for you. This means that if you have a relatively high income, you should select a price at the higher end of the scale. If you have a relatively low income, you should select a price at the lower end. Yes, I am completely serious. So, without further ado, here is what’s up for sale:

Just another few words on the sliding scale thing… By selling stuff this way, everyone who wants something gets to have something, and if enough different people with different kinds of wealth all buy things, then I will surely be able to afford to keep making things. It takes a lot of time and energy to produce this stuff, and I am not independently wealthy or anything like that. I’ve been working odd jobs to earn my dollars since I was 9 years old and got my first paper route. Selling my goods to you rather than working for somebody else by the hour allows me more autonomy in where and how I put my energy to work in the world. So thanks in advance! Your support means a lot to me.
