'Shopping' and 'Hanksville' are two words that cannot be used in the same sentence. That said, hikers and campers can find the necessities for a pack lunch or Peak-stove dinner at two of the gas stations and a small market. Stan's Chevron and Food Mart has a large selection of convenience items, 3.2 beer, some camping equipment and a variety of books, hats, T's and other gifties: nice place. Hollow Mountain is a fun bit of roadside kitsch with a smaller run of staples, and choice #3 is a tiny market that I didn't see but The Husband tells me might do the trick in a pinch. Blondies cafe bravely advertises a gift shop: that's a serious stretch of anyone's imagination but get your "Where the Hell is Hanksville?" t-shirt there.

I did notice a wee, screaming-yellow hut calling itself a "Craft Boutique" with a side offering of fancy hair treatments so fellas, if you want that tinsel job before risking life and limb in Bluejohn, this is the place.
