I love geeks. I’m a geek. I grew up with geeks. I work with geeks. And I love the Geekery section in Etsy. FYI, I’m not talking the carnival kind (though I wish I knew a few)). I’m talkin’ “a peculiar or otherwise odd person, especially one who is perceived to
be overly obsessed with one or more things including those of
intellectuality, electronics, etc”
Though I’m starting to think we can take out the ‘peculiar’ and ‘odd’ part of that as geeks quickly become a majority these days.
But hey, you certainly don’t have to be a geek to enjoy these Etsy finds:
Macbook Decals ($4.99-$12.99)
by Lil Decal Shoppe
I don’t have a Mac, I’m a PC. But I did put an apple sticker over the Gateway on my laptop for giggles. And how perfect is this play on the painting Son of Man (Mac) Magritte?
NES and Super NES Hard Drives ($109-$169)
by 8-Bit Memory
Dude… this is brilliant, is it not? And so many games to choose from! External drives are available in 320, 500 and 640GB sizes. There’s also thumb drives and clocks and awesome.
Oxidation T-Shirt ($15)
These hilariously geeky shirts are screen printed with images found in a vintage Japanese science textbook. You can get Oxidation (seen here), Evaporation and pH Equation.
Microscope Necklace ($24)
Ok listen, I’m not a scientist nor do I ever pretend to even have a clue about science… but I really want this mini microscope. How cute is that? It will go nicely with the camera pendant I don’t have yet, don’t you think?
Knit Dissections ($125-$150)
by The Crafty Hedgehog
I know what you’re thinking. “WTF?!,” right? But how could I see these amazing knit dissections and not show them off? I mean, who comes up with this geekery anyhow? Amazing.
Every now and then I like to do a little roundup of Giveaways (usually of the Etsy kind) because who the heck doesn’t like free stuff? It’s simple really, click the images to go to their respective giveaways and win! Which ones are you going to enter?
