We’re coming up on the end of April, and the end of our month’s “Geek Chic” theme. But I didn’t wanna let the month go buy without at least mentioning the fact that we’ve got an entire collection in Makers Market full of awesome stuff that is both geeky and, um, chic-y. If you or someone you love finds themselves in the intersection of that particular Venn diagram, you might take a moment to check it out. There’s stuff here you can’t find anywhere else, and it’s all lovingly made, sold, and shipped direct to you by indie makers trying their hands as entrepreneurs.
