Think of the coolest 1) technology bookstore, 2) museum gift shop, 3) arts & craft shop, and 4) electronics store you can dream up — now roll them all into one. That’s the idea behind Maker Shed. It’s an irresistible collection of books, kits, robots, microcontrollers, science sets, electronics, tools and supplies, all curated by us, the people behind MAKE and Maker Faire.
We are a small business located in Chicagoland that services customers who enjoy the latest in maker electronics and miniature computing. We make what we sell and we want our customers to get the most out of our products!
Currently, our main areas of focus are:
Compete Raspberry Pi systems, including XBMC, Raspbian Linux and more
Verified Raspberry Pi components, including SD cards preloaded with operating systems, WiFi dongles, power supplies, and more
These are just 2 of our distributors in North America, make sure to visit the Adafruit distributor page to view them all! We will be spotlighting Adafruit resellers from around the world on a regular basis!
Would you like to be an Adafruit distributor?
We have a very easy reseller program and would love to have more great people and companies as distributors, resellers and hackerspaces, all of whom receive special prices on their orders.
For many of our products you get up to a 30 % discount for just 1 quantity. This allows you to get a great discount even when ordering a small amount of items and it’s great for folks who want to try out a new product in their store. As always, if you order 50 or more of these items, this discount goes up to 40%. Note! *Not ALL items have reseller pricing, these discounts are only for items that can be marked down for our resellers, but we are adding more products to this list all the time! Remember, in order to receive this discount, orders must be $250 or more, not including shipping.
We have great relationships with our distributors and are working to provide even more features for them in the future. To become one now, click here and keep in mind the following:
