Come hang out at our first swap meet and informal meetup for nerds!

Whatever your obsession, there’s someone out there who shares it. So why don’t chu-baccaway from the computer screen and start going through your stuff, because we know there’s something you’ve got to trade. Bring any nerd curio: comic books, toys, that awesome Harry Potter wand collection, cassingles… so long as it counts as ‘nerdy,’ it’s cool with us.

But I’m SUCH a nerd, you say. My stuff is too good to swap! Never fear: if you’re a broke nerd looking to make some extra dough, you can come by to hawk your collectibles at reasonable prices.

Whether you’re the queen of the geeks, a nerd n00b or a born-again Trekkie, the Nerd Swap is here for you. May June the 24th be with you, and we’ll see you there.
