2022 may have marked the return of touring for most of the music industry, but many artists—even well-established ones—were still forced to cancel performances in the face of a volatile, economically uncertain future. But as they always do, artists found creative ways to financially support themselves, selling offbeat merch items like sneakers, hair clips, hot sauce, and mousepads. Check out our virtual merch table, featuring goodies from some of our favorite artists.
