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!”

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.
