4 Super Shops Discovered at Rose City Comic Con

As a veteran of the Seattle convention circuit, I was ecstatic to peruse new-to-me vendors from across Oregon when I attended Rose City Comic Con for the first time.

With booths that feature one-of-a-kind apparel, Minecraft toys, home decor, and more, all of these phenomenal vendors have one thing in common: fantastic wares to show off your favorite geek loves. Take a look at these super shops and check out their online storefronts to snag some goodies for yourself.

EnderToys came to my rescue when I was looking for something to bring home from the con for my six-year-old. These Minecraft-inspired toys are made of plastic, not paper, so they are more durable to handle.

Featuring YouTube stars like Stampy Cat, iBallisticSquid, and DanTDM, along with the ability to upload your own Minecraft skin, these figures are great for getting Let’s Play fans to actually play.
