    B Geeky shopping and more!

     

    The brainchild of top cosplayers Riki LeCotey and Katie George, the B Geeky Collectible Bazaar is billed as a "geek garage sale" and is in it's second year at the B Complex in the historic West End district of Atlanta.

    This was my first time attending and I hoped to score some holiday gifts for the geeks in my life.
    I was not disappointed as I made my way through the tables in the warehouse space on a chilly Sunday afternoon.

     

    Items offered ranged from classic toys, albums, books and board games to t-shirts, Pez dispensers and movie posters.

     

    Among my favorites were O Christmas Geek who had some fabulous Dia De Los Muertos sugar skull ornaments along side classic Doctor Who K-9 and TARDIS ornaments.

     

    I was also impressed with the comic book embellished shoes and rings that Geek Forge presented at their table and of course had to pick something up for myself.

     

    For the board and card game junkies Well Played offered a wide variety of games, including one of my favorites, Catan. I picked up the Star Trek version including an expansion for a heck of deal.

     

    Two local food trucks provided food and drink and a DJ provided some music that was just right for the geek crowd with mash-ups of Star Wars Disco Theme and one of my favorites - "Doctorin' The TARDIS", by The Timelords.

     

    I would definitely recommend that anyone interested in geek gifts check out the B Geeky Facebook page as well as the vendors mentioned in this iReport.

     

    I walked away with a lot of my holiday shopping done, sure that the geeks in my life will have a smile on their face as I give them their gifts.
