23bShop only works as well as it does because of the awesome people donating awesome things. And we’re not talking about things that belong in the Purgatory Bin… we’re talking about actual shop supplies and equipment.

Thinking of joining us at one of the ShopLucks anytime soon? If you can’t figure out anything tasty to bring, or you are just afraid of seeing hackers completely obliterate those snickerdoodles you worked so hard on, check out our Everyday Eccentricities wishlist. These are light consumables that are almost always needing replenishing.

Enjoy the shop and want to help keep things running as best they can? Step it up a notch and check out the Hacker’s Tier wishlist. Things like supplies for our machines, or other parts that get burnt out every now and then.

Do you work for a company which deals in computers, machinery, robotics, or any other industry which seems a good fit to us? Then check out the In Our Dreams wishlist. We may not expect to see all these items fulfilled, but it puts the interest out there to people in the right fields who may be able help us with those magic connections!

Also, don’t forget that we also have a donation box for your random change and paper monies to disappear into! All cash donations go to our shop treasurer, then straight back to help running the shop and buying supplies which have not yet been fulfilled.

Donations of working or broken equipment and supplies are highly prized. Just like a colony of Manchurian Wedge Ants, the industrious hackers of 23b Shop will lovingly snip your donations into pieces with tiny razor-sharp zircon encrusted mandibles. Hackers often carry up to 700 times their own weight in used electronics straight up the walls and ceiling of the shop, scurrying to place the gear safely in nest chambers. Once deposited in a nourishing layer of filth and sweaty Defcon Goon shirts, it will be used to feed the next generation of unicorns and kittens, and to polish the majestic Shop Narwhal.
