If you’re looking for that last-minute gift for the geek in your life, a pop-up market in Durham may just be your destination.
The GeekCraft Expo RDU will be held Saturday from 11-a.m.-6 p.m. at the Durham Armory, 220 Foster St.
The craft market bills itself as “Comic-con meets Etsy.”
“If you’re looking for gifts for the geeks on your holiday shopping list, there is simply no better place to shop,” GeekCraft Expo Director Daniel Way in a press release. “Everything for sale at GeekCraft Expo is incredibly unique, limited in quantity—not mass produced, this stuff is all made by hand—and totally nerdy!”
Never miss a local story.
GeekCraft Expo RDU was founded by comic book writer Daniel Way (Deadpool, Wolverine: Origins) and Kimberly Matsuzaki. It’s a free, curated craft show that showcases one-of-a-kind jewelry, toys, home decor and apparel. More than 50 local artisans plan to offer their wares.
In addition to offering wall-to-wall fun for families who love superheroes, gaming, and science, GeekCraft Expo RDU’s Holiday Market is teaming up with Marbles Kids Museum from Rleigh to provide geeky, holiday-themed make-and-take crafting activities for kids. It will have a Star Wars theme. Musician Nick Edelstein and The League of Extraordinary Belly Dancers also will perform.
