"Unwinnable" is a Win




I spent my Saturday at Unwinnable Geek Flea III  in Kearny, NJ with Rob Longo, creator of Vixens of Virtue Vixens of Vice. Together we schlocked dvds of Season One and Season Two, as well as *new* totally awesome Vixens Lip Balm, by BalmBon.





Little does Rob know that if he had played his cards right, he could have paid me in lip balm for Season Three.



I also had little crocheted turtle shells, mushrooms, invincibility stars, golden snitches, C'thulhu hats, and a skull up for sale... all of which will be available in the shop by the end of the week. 



Here's some more handmade stuff by some awesome local artists. I did my best to gather as many business cards to credit as accuratly as possible but there are some pics I'm unable to match up to names. If you see something you recognize, please let me know and I'll add their name/link!

Great music, tasty baked goods, fun for kids of all ages.

Also, this happened:


I don't actually know if he connected with the event in any way. I'd like to think he just showed up of his own accord dressed as Spongebob.

 
See you at the next one in September!

*UPDATE*
I heard from Stu Horvath, Unwinnable's headmaster/organizer extraordinaire. He had this to say about Spongebob;

"For the record, Sponge Bob was not affiliated with the event. He is just a local, crazy drunk. At Geek Flea 2, he showed up in a sweatsuit Captain America costume, complete with trashcan lid shield. Amazing."
