2020…Pandemic Style

2020–the year of Covid-19 and crazy politics. After our event at NerdFaire in Lynnwood, WA, all of our events for the 2020 Year were cancelled.

You’re welcome to order from our online store but otherwise, we’ll be waiting this out with everyone else. Several of our events have already shifted to virtual for 2021. We’ll let you know when we start doing in person events again. 🙁

Geek Craft Market!

We noticed it had been a while since we’d updated the event calendar, which has now been updated to fully reflect 2019’s calendar. On that note, if you’re looking for a way to drown your sorrows that the man who was Chewbacca has died or celebrate this geeky weekend (May the 4th be with you, or possibly Revenge of the 5th, depending upon how you roll), come on out to Puyallup for the Geek Craft Market!

Books & Chains will be there Saturday with new books, art, and chainmaille jewelry! More details on the event can be found here:
