Geek Window Shopping: A selection of awesome online suppliers!

Gina here!

I am a list-lover. I write lists like there is no tomorrow, and today I'd like to share my list of 4 great suppliers of Geeky merch on the internet! Of course I couldn't search every geek-related crevice the web has to offer, but here I present a few of my personal favourites. So grab the nearest credit card (maybe it'll be yours, maybe not...) and get to spending!   

A foreword about Etsy.
Etsy is a fantastic place- I've stumbled upon some absolute gems from the most random and uninspired of boredom-induced shopping searches. I would like to demonstrate to everyone the joys of Etsy and, more importantly, the importance of supporting independent sellers and artists! Take a look at my list of fabulous Etsy sellers!
  • Etsy store: Geek Tweek. An eclectic mix of video game novelty items! Want a Mass Effect hair bow, or an 8bit inspired necklace? How about some Walking Dead earrings or a circuit board necklace? Geek Tweek has got you covered. They even create custom bottle cap jewellery!

  • Etsy store: Design by Nick Morrison. Do you enjoy adorning your walls with a proud display of your nerdy prowess? Yes, of course you do! Then you'll want to check out some of the fabulous – and very reasonably priced- prints at this Etsy store. There's something for everyone, whether you're into The Avengers, Iron Man, Harry Potter or just really enjoy displays of anatomically correct hearts.

  • Etsy store: Non-fiction tees. Sometimes you just need a non-fiction t-shirt. You need a shirt that says something (anything!). Sometimes you'd rather have a shirt that's more intelligently stimulating than tedious and nauseating. Head on over to Non-fiction tees and bag yourself a shirt displaying Isaac Newton's colour theory, dinosaur evolution, or hey... corn farming. Stun your friends and family with the sheer amount of info you can cram on to one t-shirt! You may even learn a thing or two with these tees, which available in men's and women's sizes!

  • Etsy store: Authored adornments. If you're anything like me, you love books. You adore to read because reading feeds your imagination and inspires you and makes you a smarter, and sometimes wiser person. If you have a connection with books, then you should check out Authored Adornments, who offer jewellery and accessories emblazoned with a selection of excepts from some of the greatest books ever written. Check it out!

And there you have it, my list of four unique and fantastic suppliers of geeky knick knacks and apparel. Be proud to display your love of all things nerdy, and don't forget to let me and Ari know of any more awesome stores we should check out in the comments!
