Sample Sale

It's shop cleaning season and as part of the deep clean, we’ve found a whole bunch of sample maps.

‘Sample Maps’ is catch-all term for prototypes, retail displays and photo shoot models. Some of them exhibit light wear from their time on the road, some have the subtle quirks of a prototype, some of them have barely been touched. If you’re looking for perfection, buying a new map is the best option. If you’re OK with some subtle signs of use and quirk or two, these samples the best deals around.

All samples are 40% off until May 10th.

There’s only one of each. When they’re gone, they’re gone.

Shipping in CA is $15, shipping outside of CA is $20. Pickup from the shop in Alameda is free.

All of the maps below are currently available. We’ll remove when claimed.

Holiday Hibernation

After all the holiday orders ship out, Krakatoa goes into hibernation for a couple weeks. It's our time to catch up on sleep, see family, and enjoy the snow (hopefully). We'll be back in the shop by January 6th. Any orders places between 12/20 and 1/6 will be processed ASAP upon return.
