There’s only so much house-cleaning, kokis- making, clothes shopping and visiting of 101 relatives that the Geek spirit can take. So whether you’re the one being harangued to clean your room or being dragged into the horrors of the House of Fashion holiday scrum, or you’re the person doing the haraguing and dragging, Lanka Comic Con’s Geek Pop-up Market can offer you a day of armistice for the entire family!
