No outside product is sold here. The sale proceeds from these shops go back to the rural enterprises, farmers, and artisans associated with MSS. Only the Magan Deep Khadi shop sells Khadi procured from Khadi production units in other states of India.
The guests of MS get an opportunity to stay in a mud guest house where the walls are made of hand compacted mud blocks and roof with terracotta tiles. Staying in this cool, comfortable mud house is a peaceful experience worth having. Its two rooms with attached bathrooms and toilets can accommodate four to six guests.
