This place is awesome, I saw stuff that I usually wouldn't find in so an array of dr who collectibles. I picked up a 6.5 inch

Geek alert - yes I am a bit of a geek when it comes to sci-fi and fantasy and this is the place to shop if you want to join the fan world and truly show how geeky you are.

Although I only have 2 check ins here I do pop into this place quite often, especially around Christmas and often by fan related gifts for friends and end up with my own piece of fanzone myself (mockingjay pins, Star Wars...more
