As the holidays roll around, sometimes you just want to give the people close to you a little slice of Venezuela. And boy do we have you covered!

Presenting The Store.

It’s Caracas Chronicles Merch Heaven!

The Store is T-shirts, sure, but it’s also hoodies, tank tops, tote bags, posters…need a Whiskey and Tequeño iPhone Case? Te lo tengo. 

Our first collection is in collaboration with Íconos Venezolanos, an amazing group of young Venezuelan designers. These guys just have a knack for images that put you right back in Caracas, wherever you may be now.

We know you want us to keep Caracas Chronicles free and ad-free, so we’re keeping it a punta de creatividad.

So come in and give it a look.

Our readers keep us going: everything we do here we do for you guys. We know you want us to keep Caracas Chronicles free and ad-free, so we’re keeping it a punta de creatividad.

And that’s what The Store is about: with every purchase you don’t just get to take home a little bit of Venezuela, you support all the work we do here at Caracas Chronicles too. Dos pájaros, un tiro. 

And hurry, just a few shopping days till Christmas!

Caracas Chronicles is 100% reader-supported. Support independent Venezuelan journalism by making a donation.


  1. Do you accept Bs.100 notes, at what exchange rate, and for how long? Aren’t your icons/symbols destabilizing to the Regime, evoking the good times of the Cuarta? Therefore, might your backers be those backing MCM/cohorts (Emi, et. al.)? Aren’t you afraid of a Kreiselazo, with your goods becoming stocking stuffers for your many maula readers/contributers, who don’t/can’t contribute to your support. Don’t you feel the racist/classist divisions you’re instigating with these offerings, when 80% of Venezuelans are dirt poor, and many are going hungry every day?

    • Yes, it will take me a few days to get my Bs. 100 notes from my warehouse in the Swiss Alps, so hopefully CC will accept them for a couple weeks longer.
