Custom Ordering

Can’t find it online? Let us know!

While we’re proud to offer an extensive selection of books, gifts, and memorabilia in our online shop, including some uniquely rare and collectible items, we acknowledge that the eclectic nature of our Gift Shop at the Beat Museum itself means some items are not listed online. If you were looking for something you’re unable to find here, please consider placing a custom order.

For instance, if you’re looking for a Kerouac biographies, we have several different ones, some out of print, some in better condition than others. Or if you’re looking for a signed William S. Burroughs first edition, we have a few of those, too. Tell us where your interests lie, and we’ll respond by email; if you’d prefer we call you, leave your phone number.

We have some amazing Beat items you won’t find on Amazon! Probably only 2% of our total inventory is online. Contact us, and we can tell you about all the great stuff that could be yours!
