Two very different things today: one retro games home decoration and one way to show off your geekiness while getting your drink on. Both are handcrafted and look fabulous, so check them out and do some Holiday shopping!

This shop gives you the chance the decorate your fridge and other magnetic places with perler bead magnets in the shape of old school Nintendo characters and even whole scenes from games like Super Mario Bros.

Who are you and/or how did you get started?

My name is Alonso im 27 years old Architect / Graphic Designer who happens to be in love whit video games and gadgets.

I get started with the perler beads magnets and sprites when i went to a comic expo with my girlfriend and her cousin , there is where i saw this amazing looking figures of Mario, Megaman, pacman made of perler beads, they were so pretty to look at that i immediately bought a couple of them, i got so interest with the sprites and perler beads that in two or three days after i was making my own, but when my girlfriend and I started the shop at etsy.com we wanted to do everything perfect, starting with the product, the pictures and even the packing as well.

What do you make?

I make flasks, cigarette/card cases, business card cases, money clips, belts, lighters, keychains, pill boxes and humidors. But I mostly make flasks 🙂 4, 6 8 or 10 ounce.

Who are you and/or how did you get started?

I got started around 15 years ago when my daughter bought me a gift for my birthday from another seller on ebay at the time. I thought what a novel idea, BUT it needs to be better. So for the next several years I perfected the product, used and experimented with different materials and came up with the perfect item. People seem to love them, and I enjoy making them. It is time consuming and hard, but I love it.

What makes your items great for geeks?

Geeks love the items especially with the geeky images I have availabe, and also I special make anything anyone might want. Well if you are a dnd geek you would love my “this is how I roll” flask.

There you have it! Plenty of geeky, handcrafted goodness for your week. Buy, buy, buy!
