From Wikipedia: "A gift shop is a store primarily selling souvenirs, memorabilia, and other items relating to a particular topic or theme."
Our theme is what makes Are.na itself: its participants, their ideas, and the worlds they create together. In other words, the gift store is a gradually growing collection of collaborations in the form of real things.
A yearly anthology of writing from the people of Are.na. This year, the Annual is themed “service,” as in an act of helping or supplying; to repair or maintain; to provide a public need; a meeting for worship, a place to refuel.
