About The Team
Our team is a group of writers who know a thing or two about quality merch. Each and every one of these writers has shelves full of fun little models, figures, and knick-knacks, making them the ideal candidate for the job. Our writers come from varied backgrounds, have varied interests, and are usually separated by several time zones. However, they all come together to form the best team around when it comes to reporting on the best merch of the moment. So without further delay, meet our team:

She’s always interested in what’s new in pop culture, and the way people express themselves with their favorite merchandise.
Favorite Superhero Merch: I’ve always been a big fan of Spiderman, especially the Tobey Maguire films. I love merchandise from the Disney Store, as well as some of the edgier picks from Hot Topic
Favorite Gaming Merch: I’m a huge Sims player, but admittedly there isn’t that much for official merch (I bought a handmade Plumbob necklace from Etsy). I do also love merchandise for Skyrim.
Favorite Celebrity Merch: I never thought I’d say this years ago, but I love Taylor Swift’s music, and I also love her ever-changing merchandise. But I also really admire celebrities who step it up by selling organic and sustainably-sourced products, like Harry Styles.
Favorite Type of Merch: I’ll always be a book nerd, and I’m fascinated by art, design, and behind-the-scenes snapshots. Outside of books, I love cozy blankets and memorable wall art.
What She Loves Most About Merch: I think my favorite thing about merchandise is gifting. It’s a personal gift and it shows you know someone’s interest. I also love seeing all the unique designs merchandise has to offer.
We hope that you have an excellent time visiting our website and we hope that you find that item you’ve been dreaming of!
When Candace isn’t lost with her nose in a Fantasy book, or writing her next bestselling novel, she can be found geeking out over fan merch! She’s part of so many fandoms, and loves to collect cool merch from conventions, speciality shops, and all corners of the internet.
Favorite Superhero Merch: I’m a massive X-Men fan so I gobble up anything I see, especially anything related to Rogue.
Favorite Gaming Merch: Old school Nintendo nerd here. I love anything to do with Mario or Donkey Kong. But I’m also a HUGE Minecraft player so I do collect cool Minecraft merch.
Favorite Celebrity Merch: I’m a big fan of anything to do with Doug Jones. I know he’s not the typical celeb to fawn over, but he’s one of my idols and I would buy anything he touched LOL
Favorite Type of Merch: As an author, I’m a book nerd, first and foremost. I collect special editions of all my fav books, cool bookish merch, and I even make my own custom Funko Pops of my fav book characters.
What She Loves Most About Merch: I love how there’s literally fan merch for everything. You love something? There’s something to collect and cherish!

Favorite Superhero Merch: My Captain America 80th Anniversary Loungefly Crossbody Bag! It’s probably the priciest piece of merch I’ve ever bought, but I love the vibrancy of the colours, and it makes me happy every time I wear it 🙂
Favorite Gaming Merch: Oh gosh, this is tough to decide, I have so much! I think if I had to choose, I’d go with my Spyro Controller Holder. It’s a great way to spice up my gaming set up!
Favorite Celebrity Merch: I don’t know if it counts as merch, but I love meeting celebrities at conventions and collecting their autographs. I’d never just buy an autograph from a seller, though. For me, the fun of owning them is in recounting the moment that I met that celebrity.
Favorite Type of Merch: I love anything that’s useful. Decorative merch is all well and good, and I certainly own plenty of it, but if a piece of merch can serve a purpose as well as just looking cool, then I know I’m on to a winner.
What She Loves Most About Merch: Being able to have a visual reminder of my interests, and fill my home with personality. It makes life much more fun when I can look around and be surrounded by items I love.
