Did you know that a Mozilla store exists where you can buy all kinds of Mozilla merchandise? That was a first for me.
You can buy Firefox and Thunderbird on CD with nice covers, t-shirts and polos with all kinds of Firefox, Thunderbird and Mozilla motives, gears like backpacks, jackets, posters, stickers, umbrellas and even a fox plushie.
More than interesting is the fact that you can navigate to two different stores that carry different kind of products.
Update: No longer true, there is only one store available now. Mozilla Gear is the name of the store that you can order apparel, accessories and art from. There you find Mozilla caps and shirts, longsleeves, posters and more.
The new store seems to hold fewer items than the old stores. While you find apparel there and some posters, you won't find other items such as bags or mugs in the store anymore.
The store ships worldwide from a location in the United States. According to Mozilla, tax and duty may apply depending on where the items are shipped and which shipping method is selected.
You got the Mozilla Store and the International Mozilla Store. If you compare the Gears section the Mozilla store carries three items, a laptop sleeve, a messenger bag and a metro bag while the international store only carries two, a laptop backpack and a sports bag.
The first store also carries Mozilla mousepads, mugs, flip jotters and tumblers while the international store does not.
The price range of the products lies in the usual Internet merchandise range, t-shirts sell for $16-18 for instance. Surprisingly though prices are roughly the same in both stores.
Would you buy those merchandise? Some of them look really nice.
