Interior of the Bigelow Aerospace Genesis 1 spacecraft in orbit. The company is
accepting items from the public for placement inside the next Genesis module
to launch to space in the fall of 2006.

Space Travel for People
Several companies now offer tickets to fly on suborbital spaceflight vehicles. The first such vehicles are expected to begin test flights by late 2007. It is also possible to obtain a flight to the ISS for around US$20M. The Space Tourism section provides lots of information about this kind of service.

Here is a list of travel agencies that provide not only spaceflight packages but also astronaut training, "zero-gravity" on airplanes flying parabolas, tours of spaceports, etc.

Items flow in Space, Small Payloads
Several companies now sell rides into space for small payloads such as school science projects, collectables and memorabilia, etc. Most of these companies currently provide only suborbital spaceflights.

Museum of Flight Giftshop

Smithsonian Store

Note that the store in the Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum itself is very large and offers a huge variety of space items.

Space Toys: Apollo to Space Stations
The Space Toys store offers a wide range of space related toys, models, clothes, and more. See also the sister store at SkyScopes Space Exploration Information and Products.

The Spacestore
The Space StoreTM was begun as a family business owned and operated by Dayna Steele-Justiz, a radio talk show host in Houston, and Charlie Justiz, a research pilot for NASA. The SpaceStore eventually became part of Spacehab. However, it is still run by Ms. Steele.

Space Travelers Emporium
The San Diego Space Society opened this storefront in July 2010.

San Diego Space Society launches out of this world from South Park - San Diego Uptown News - July.9.10

The storefront is designed like a small gift shop, selling posters, T-shirts, and even space suits—currently modeled by a mannequin that Clark has nicknamed Marsha White. More importantly, the Emporium will offer tickets for suborbital flight—near-space sightseeing flights set to begin by 2015—for the hefty fee of $100,000 to $200,000 a person.

The facility also provides a
a library for Space Society members and a space-travel supply shop and will host Space Society workshops, meetings and events.
Sounds like a great place for space enthusiasts to hang out.
