We did it
On 14th November 2017 we successfully raised £10 with 1 supporters in 56 days

We aim to sell all things geek from trading cards and tabletop gaming supplies to character t-shirts and collectibles, instore and online. Our prices will beat even the most popular online stores, as well as offering a service whereby we will source the exact products you ask for, which no other online geek shop does.

We want to bring geeks together from all over Spalding and the surrounding areas for evening gaming clubs and weekend events, offering monthly competitions for real prizes and recognition.

After months of hard work negotiating trade deals, writing out employment contracts, refining our business plan, setting up our website, marketing on social media and arguing with estate agents, our funding has fallen through.
In order to make this business work, we now need your support more than ever. We had hoped to open in October, but without funding we will lose the property we had found, and of course there will be no money in the kitty to buy shop fittings or even stock.
This project is meant to be more than just a shop; it's about bringing the geek community together through clubs, events and competition. It's about providing products locally at affordable prices instead of charging the sky high amounts that bigger names do. It's about opening a store in Spalding that people actually want, to bring money back into the town instead of seeing yet another empty shop front.

Please donate and share if you support our business venture to help get us to our target of £25,000. If the population of Spalding donated a £1 each, we would have over £22,000 so please get sharing.
We are the droids you're looking for.
