Have you been itching for some new Doctor Who gear? Do you need to get a head start on buying Christmas gifts for all of your fellow geek friends? Then look no further than the only exclusively Whovian craft faire in Southern California – The Art of Tardis Craft Faire. The host of the faire is Geeky Teas & Games located in Burbank, California. Each time this faire has been hosted, there are always a plethora of things to shop for from vendors. This year there will be some returning favorites and a whole new array of vendors joining the faire.
Vendors will offer their unique Doctor Who-themed wares, plus food vendors will gather outside L.A.’s finest geek-themed tea shop. So far, there is one confirmed food vendor and that is Slanging Corea. This free, family-friendly event offers coloring pages for the littlest Who fans. Grab your favorite scarf, bow tie or Sonic Screwdriver and have your photo snapped in a full-size TARDIS, which is located in front of the shop. There will be all the fun for your inner Gallifreyan as well as fun memories to be made.
While you are there, make sure you show off your knowledge of the Who-universe. If you’re completely new to the Doctor Who fandom, there are quite a few people who will take the time to answer any and all questions that you will have. If you aren’t up for chit chat, you can always have a cup of tea and chill. The environment is super laid back and is just great for sitting and relaxing.
Not only will there by vendors selling wares and various Doctor Who goodies, I believe there will be a gallery show inside the shop itself. Perhaps you can take home a bit of Doctor Who inspired art to hang up over a fireplace or in your living room? If you’re anything like me, you will always buy artwork.
If you can’t get enough of Wibbly Wobbly, Timey, Wimey stuff, then this is the place for you. Geeky Teas & Games is hosting this event on Saturday, September 24th, next weekend. The faire is open from 12pm to 8 pm, so there is plenty of time to stop by for a spell. Their shop is located at 2120 W Magnolia Blvd, Burbank, CA 91506.
I, myself, am planning on going in the afternoon. Maybe I’ll catch you all there!
