So… What is ‘geeky’?

 

According to our friend Google, the definition of “geeky” is:

geeky
ˈɡiːki/
adjective
  1. unfashionable and socially inept.
    “the geeky kid getting bullied at school”
    • knowledgeable and obsessively interested in something, especially technology.
      “a bunch of geeky techies

    Or:

    1.

    a. A person regarded as foolish, inept, or clumsy.
    b. A person who is single-minded or accomplished in scientific or technical pursuits but is felt to be socially inept.
    2. A carnival performer whose show consists of bizarre acts, such as biting the head off a live chicken.

    tr.v.geeked, geek·ing, geeks

    To excite emotionally: I’m geeked about that new video game.

    Now I’m pretty sure non of our customers has been biting chicken heads off for fun (I really hope)!

    But basically our shop is a haven for the ‘not norm’. And in that, all fandoms are covered. Anything from the popular Star Wars, Harry Potter and Anime  – to the not so popular. Myself (Tersia) has a thing for fairies and dragons – and Tinkerbell. And Mickey Mouse. And Garfield. And Disney kid movies. Hubby (Leon) is a music quiz wizard and loves the Beatles. And 80s music. And old children television programs like Postman Pat and Wombles! He also collects Wades. Yes, even collecting Wades can be geeky!

    Our shop assistants are gamers and their knowledge of anime and games are out of this world! And cosplayers that can make the most amazing outfits.

    Between the lot of us we can talk to you about anything and everything for hours.

    So if you feel you ‘just don’t fit into a box’, welcome to our community. You are welcome to be yourself.
