Swamp Shop FAQ
Q: What is the WWOZ Swamp Shop?
A: The Swamp Shop is WWOZ's online store. You place your order online, and Ms. Swamp Thing ships out your stuff from an undisclosed, swampy location in New Orleans. We've got all kinds of WWOZ clothing and gear as well as some vintage Jazz Fest tees in the shop. These products are often limited edition; some are classic and some are new. Your purchases directly help support WWOZ!
Q: What's the vintage Jazz Fest tee hullabaloo all about?
A: We've been given the special opportunity to sell shirts from Jazz
Fests past, recently discovered in an excavated vault within a sealed up
tomb we found underneath the Fairgrounds. This means that if you LOVED
Jazz Fest 2002 and you forgot to buy a tee-shirt to commemorate it, you
might be in luck, as we're selling some of the last available shirts
through our Swamp Shop.
This means we don't always have each shirt in every size; but it
means that once we run out, we're out for good and there'll never be
another shirt like it in the whole Universe.
(We aren't selling the Hawaiian tessellated shirts, as those are actually sold by an outside company.)

Q: Does the Swamp Shop have a physical store I can visit?
A: No, unfortunately we have neither the space nor the
staff for a physical store at this time. But who knows, maybe with your
continued support, we can have one some day! For now, be sure to connect with us on Facebook and the 'OZone e-newsletter--sometimes we sell select merchandise at festivals around town, and will let you know when we do.
Q: How are Swamp Shop items shipped?
A: All products, with the exception of the
signed banners, will arrive via USPS Priority Mail for domestic shipping
and USPS First Class Mail for international shipping. Orders are normally fulfilled within two business days after they are placed, but there are certain times of the year when this is not possible.
In general, the first item you purchase will cost $7.00 to ship, and
each additional item will cost an additional $1.00. Exceptions to this
rule include backpack coolers, umbrellas, and signed banners, which cost
more due to weight, size, and preciousness. Domestic orders will
arrive about a week after you place your order, and international orders
will take a couple of weeks or so, depending on the destination. All items are packed with 'OZ love
Q: What is the Swamp Shop return policy?

All items may now be returned for store credit, except for clearance items, which may not be returned. Unwanted items must be returned within 30 days from the date of sale.
