The LightCap300 seems made for Burning Man, and indeed we've taken hundreds and given them away to burners in past years. The LightCap300 is a one liter water bottle (BPA-Free) with a SOLAR POWERED LED LIGHT in the cap, so it turns your water bottle into a lantern at night. There are both white and red LEDs. If you already have a favorite water bottle, you can get the LightCap200 which is just a solar cap with lights that will fit any 'standard' Nalgene type water bottle. We also offer several other unique solar-powered lights and chargers for your camp and vehicle.

Bootstrapsolar LLC
BootstrapSolar is a crowd-funded company that designs, manufactures and sells Open Source DIY solar charger kits for powering small devices like phones and tablets, as well as Arduino projects and EL-wire. The prototype of our first product was field tested at Burning Man in 2011, and was used to keep our phones charged, and EL-wire lit bright at night.
If you're tired of recharging AA batteries and seeing your EL-wire fade as you enjoy the night, consider picking up one of our kits. The 5W solar panel generates ample power under the strong desert sun, while the 22Wh battery pack stores enough energy to keep your EL-wire lit up all night. The power packs can also recharge phones, for when you're regretfully forced to re-connect with the outside world upon Exodus. Our kits are also Open Source, and unlike many electronics these days, you can assemble, disassemble, repair and upgrade it yourself.

Iron Monkey Arts
Playa Staples are hand-forged square stock steel tapered to points at each end and bent into a 'candy cane' shape. When hammered into the ground they lay flush and will not trip or skewer people like that unsafe rebar stuff. They enter the ground easily and stay secure until it's time to go. Playa Staples are removed quickly by simply levering them straight up. They've been around since 2003; are time tested, and burner approved (over 9,000 sold, almost 2,000 made and sold in 2011 alone!).

Playa Staples are available in two sizes:

Regular Playa Staples are roughly 10" on one side and 6" on the other, with 1-1/2" spacing in the center, and are made with 3/8" square stock. These are best for tents, carports and smaller structures.

Blackrock Hardware
Shade! After years of travel in the Black Rock Desert for Burning Man and other events, my friends and I have come up with this great sun shade system to keep us and our kids out of the hot sun. This shade canopy completely gets rid of those tie wires everyone runs into, holds up great in strong winds and is expandable so you and your camp mates can build one big structure out of everyone’s structures or add-on as your camp grows. We've eliminated the dangerous tie wires and stakes with a unique staking system that places the stake inside the leg pole.

All of the proceeds go to the honorarium art cars The Serpent Twins ( No fundraising this year, we're only selling shade!

IRON & FIRE ritual adornment
IRON & FIRE's unique and one-of-a-kind offerings include: talisman necklaces, leather macrame and fringe accessories, leather and chain body harnesses, belts, hair adornments, breastplates, feather and bone totem jewelry, and unisex leather wrist-armor.

IRON & FIRE adornment pieces are handcrafted for fellow urban mystics, seekers, and nomads. Each piece is inspired by the sublime beauty of nature, the wisdom and traditions of indigenous cultures, and a vision of the future world we are capable of creating through conscious evolution. Each unique adornment is created using a combination of salvaged leathers, found treasures from Mama Gaia, repurposed materials, vintage tribal components, semi-precious stones, and oxidized metals. My design materials, like my jewels, are unique and often one-of-a-kind. To create pieces of the most potent magic, it's important to me to know where my design materials come from, and that my animal components have been acquired as ethically as possible. With the sale of each piece, I pass along this knowledge to my customers, and they take with them the intrinsic medicine, energy, and love, that make each one so special!

Love Of Rama
Ello, My name is Monique: I'm a small town girl from Wyoming who dreamt of the West coast, and finally made it! I now live in the Santa Cruz mountains, where I'm surrounded by beauty and inspiration. I love to create anything and everything: clothing, feather earrings, feather accessories, wire wraps, beaded and hemp jewelry, and even paintings and photographs. I pour love and positive intention into everything I create. Also, most of the clothing I make is from recycled material that I either sew, serge, or tie back together. I love to give new life to forgotten or cast aside objects- it's good for the soul and Mother Earth. Infinite love to all of you!

My-Burning-Desires.Com is an Extremely Unique store…for Uniquely Extreme People! is not just a store, it’s a community project and we welcome you to become a part of it.

What we are trying to accomplish is to connect talented people and artists with a craft or art they wish to sell, with people who are looking to own and appreciate it. The artisan gets paid what they wanted for the item and any additional profit from the sale goes back to help the site grow, fund our Non-Profit Luminous Arts Foundation, The Nautibus project, and other great artistic and social endeavors.

We are creating a winning synergy for all that’s involved-

-The artisan that sold their item and is supporting their craft.
-The purchaser that bought that unique item that they now love.
-The website that has provided the forum to sell the item is able to grow.
-The burner community that gets additional funds to support their local projects.

Our aspirations and wishes for the site are for it to grow and evolve into a philanthropic business that is able to seek out and support many artists, Burning Man events and other great causes beyond our local community.

During his 359 days a year away from Home, Alex is focused on creating pieces that work on the playa and also in the default world. Firmly planted in its roots, Radical Curve painstakingly gives birth to a unique combination of apparel: fashionable but also practical, comfortable and customizable.

Alex's background in choreography lends itself nicely to designing for the dance floor. You may not notice the small details until you're out on the playa but you'll be pleasantly surprised when you do. Each Radical Curve piece is crafted with a careful eye for customizations for active dancers. Customizations that allow Burners to quickly zip/unzip/unlatch a piece to quickly cool down, warm up. And, of course, every piece comes with a couple of secret pockets.

A Sign of Success
Hello Fellow Burners. I can provide all of your vinyl sign needs. If you need to create camp signs, give your art car spots like a lady bug, make a camp banner, have a vinyl decal for your camp to raise funds on kickstarter, create camp buttons or a million other things then contact me so we can work on your project together. I cut vinyl in various shapes and colors that will stick on any smooth surface. Glad to work with burners for their off playa projects as well. Located in Los Angeles but ship anywhere in the world. I hope to see you at Burning Man for my 8th year of amazingness.

Airport Van Rental
Last year AVR had over 75 of our Passenger vans attend Burning Man. We are a women owned small business with several locations throughout California. We have a current special that burners can choose to take advantage of "post a picture of you and your van on our facebook page" and receive 10% off your rental. We are not doing this as a marketing gimic to infiltrate BM, but as a way to promote the use of our vans for many different activities through our FB page (group activities, family vacations, etc..) We also partner with a local car wash and negotiate a discount for Burners when returning their vans. We would love to be featured in the Burning Man Issue to reach more of the BM community :) We are also open to any other suggestions you have to work together, if any. I look forward to your response.

Disco Dog Ranch
While you are getting down on the Playa, your dog will be digging it at our free-range (no kennels) dog boarding ranch in the Seattle area. It's like summer camp for dogs - they're out playing on securely fenced acreage and sleep in our home at night. They will have as much fun as you, and that's valuable peace of mind!!!
