You can trust our selection of goods
Our hunter/gatherers are the best in the field. They have years of experience discovering artifacts and observing artisan craftsman at the source. We determine the best values, we find the pieces with power, and we hand-choose each one for our most discerning clients.

"Shopping itself, as we all know, can be a very liberating experience. It is a measure of our self-esteem that we allow ourselves to shop; a measure of even greater self-esteem if we shop for something expensive. In Western civilization, of course, this is taken even a step further, and the truly respected people are the ones who can spend money hand over fist on the utterly useless, or the wildly extravagant."
-Jeff Greenwald, Shopping for Buddhas


When you buy an artifact at Inspired Planet you are benefiting the artisans and their families—the woodsmen, weavers, miners and metalsmiths that gather and craft the teak, turquoise, silver and silk— you support the sons and daughters who carry on the techniques, the grandmothers and grandfathers that remember the stories, and hundreds of local folk who provide logistical support here and abroad. You become part of a worldwide system of intercultural exchange and expression.
