Muggles Market Spotlight: Plunkett & Fiddlestone

Welcome to another Muggles Market Spotlight for 2017! Today, we are delighted to announce the addition of new artisan Plunkett & Fiddlestone to our second annual Muggles’ Market at this year’s Geek Gala. Jennifer Westmoreland took a few minutes to answer some questions about her business and general geekery.

  • What kinds of items will you be selling at this year’s Muggles Market?
    Steam punk mostly, oddities and accords, top hats, gauntlets, goggles, and also goggles, weapons, and also some fairy, mermaid, and mystical items… Things I find along my travels as a merchant of oddities and purveyor of strange needs.
  • How did you first get started making these things?
    My son and I started making things together as a way to connect, after he was bullied a bit harshly at school and began to shut down, you know, the way boys do…
  • What has been one of your favorite projects to work on?
    My nerf/plastic guns and Steampunk weapons… I tend to put them off, because I’m always just so sure I won’t have any original ideas. When I start, they take on a life of their own.
  • What else can you tell us about yourself?
    We are a maker/ con/ kayaking/Rock painting / letterboxing family – when everyone gets along!
  • So this year’s Geek Gala pays homage to Godzilla movies – if you were to create a Godzilla movie today – what type of nemesis do you think he should fight against?
  • And make plans to come visit them on Saturday, October 21st at this year’s Geek Gala
