Genki Gear

Lydia English

Genki Gear produces original t-shirts that stand out amongst the crowd! We have a number of influences from Japanese culture, Dungeons and Dragons, tabletop games, and science fiction and we add to it a dash of unique humour. We started in May 2005 we have loved the last 14 plus years of running Genki Gear, even launching our £10 range to celebrate our 10th Anniversary.

Our sense of fun and offbeat humour has given us the tagline of “weird but still rather nice.”

All designs by Genki Gear are all silkscreen printed in the UK and each design is created across a full range of styles so there’s always a Genki Gear t-shirt to choose. Plus every range is ethically produced and of the highest quality so you can wear your Geek with Pride!

In addition, check out our range of gifts including mugs, cosplay ears and cards which are all ethically produced and great fun!

We both love meeting all our customers so please come and say hello if you see us at any show!

Guardbridge Books

David Stokes

Guardbridge Books is a small press, publishing Science Fiction and Fantasy books. (New this year, we also have some non-fiction history books.)

Many of our books have some international or multi-cultural aspect to them. We publish authors from around the world. We like fiction that has strong literary qualities and provokes thought about important ideas, but which is also entertaining to read.

Our books range in tone and mood from light and humorous (Sherlock Mars) to dark and twisted (The Hungry Ones) and everything in-between. We like talking about books, so stop by our dealer’s table and we can help you find something that fits your reading tastes.

We are located in the village of Guardbridge, right by St Andrews in Fife.
