Not All Who Wander Are Lost

 Continuing on where I left off yesterday. Near the Star Wars area was a Star Trek area, and this included the notion of adopting a Tribble- the furballs from the original series that were revisited in Deep Space Nine. Why not, I decided. I also got an adoption certificate from the Klingon Empire noting that I was responsible for this Tribble, and if it ever returned to the Empire, both it and I would be executed. 


More from this particular display.


I continued on. The green of that dress is eye catching.


Doctor Who was accounted for. I'm oblivious to the series.


I liked the variety of these masks.


Thor's Trinkets makes glassware with a comics, movie, and pop culture motif. I've bought a number of beer mugs and tumblers from the woman who runs the establishment before.


Another wider view.


A display case included horns decorated with motifs from Lord of the Rings.


A map of Middle Earth was etched on this bag. I was tempted.


Here we have coasters and cutting boards. Since Groot is a kind of tree, the I Was Groot one made me laugh. 


Popsquatch is a dealer who makes T-shirts with a silhouette motif. I've bought shirts from them before, including the Fellowship at lower left. This year I picked two- the One Ring at top left, and a Batman one.


Their selection ranges from movies, television, and video games. I was happy to see them, because the other place I would have gone to for t-shirts inexplicably was only selling them this year as mystery boxes of four. Oh well.

  1. What fun! I have been a fan of Star Trek since the beginning, including Dr. Who and many others.

  2. Dr Who was part of my childhood - gathered around the family TV when I was young - but apart from reading a handful of SciFi books that's where my interest ended.

    1. I have seen a few minutes of a Dr. Who show- enough to convince me it was written by someone on drugs.

  4. Is that. a G-force shirt from Battle of the Planets? Remember Tiny, Princess, Qy-op, Mark...? I am just nerding out here! Be careful with those tribbles. They were mortal enemies of the Klingon Empire! ­čśé
