The Countdown to Maker Faire Bay Area is On!

Last minute Maker Shed shopping!

The Maker Shed robo-elves say:

We still have plenty of of our most popular kits, tools, toys, and books ready to ship. And in fact, we just unloaded a huge truck load of awesome new kits yesterday afternoon. Not only that, check this out: we picked 9 of our MAKE staff favorites and pre-wrapped them in Maker Faire posters (illustrated by eBoy). That’s right, a tree-ready Maker Shed gift, wrapped in a Maker Faire poster by a MAKE staff member. It doesn’t get any more hands-on than that.

Here’s the deal though. We’ll guarantee U.S. delivery by Christmas using 2-day shipping if you order by midnight tonight (as in 11:59PM Saturday the 19th). If you really like to live on the edge, we can still guarantee Christmas delivery on U.S. orders placed by 11:59PM Monday night, but you’ll have to go with overnight shipping.

And if you’re still undecided or you suddenly remember that favorite maker uncle on Christmas Eve, you can buy one of our awesome Maker Shed gift certificates suitable for printing or emailing.
