Paul Little, who operates the Steampunk General Store, is hosting a Steampunk Minicon from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday (May 11).
The event, which will feature booths from local businesses and attractions, is at the Danish Brotherhood Lodge, 2206 63rd St.
Admission is free, Little said, but visitors are being asked to “bring a donation for God’s Kitchen, the people who feed the homeless and other people twice a day.”
Items that are needed, he said, include plates, bowls, aluminum foil, gift cards, sodas and juices. Food items to donate include spaghetti sauce, baked beans, crackers, ground beef, tuna and macaroni and cheese.
“We will have booths and tables with lots of fun stuff to buy,” Little said, “We will also have some very interesting and informative tables and presentations and a ‘makers table’ where you can learn to make steampunk stuff for yourself.”
Vendors will include the Steampunk General Store, featuring a variety of steampunk items, including clothing, corsets and other pieces; Pat Taylor’s jewelry and steampunk hats; Karen Pauli’s lace mitts; Kyla Mead’s “thrift store type stuff”; Jennifer Dunagan’s jewelry, parasols and steampunk lamps; Maera Lynn and Jennifer Burke’s polymer clay figures and creations; physical therapist Orlando BeLisle Jr.; J & A’s Bounce of Fun bounce houses and inflatable games; Scoops Ice Cream; Sal’s Pizza; Luigi’s pizza; and R & J’s thrift shop.
There will also be booths from the Kenosha County Historical Society, Kenosha Public Museum, Kenosha Civil War Museum and Kenosha Dinosaur Discovery Museum, Little said.
