    It had a bunch more stuff memorial day weekend, and less stuff two days later. I personally bought a bunch of Sparkfun stuff and a MakerShed starter kit from there. I hope they carry more stuff.
    It needs to move out to either the video game area or the tools section. Just to get more notice.

    Having stuff at microcenter is what led me to this hobby two weeks ago. I found out about the hobby on friday, found out that microcenter carried on saturday and sunday I was already re-learning how to solder.
    I wouldn’t call it brisk but there was def. things there on sunday that weren’t there on tuesday when I went back - like the bluetooth module.
    There were no inventor kits :( had to go with a Makershed one from Microcenter to dive in. But I def. picked up another Uno within a week from there (sparkfun packaging)

    Yep, I just build my very first test thing (the joystick shield) and am itching to build anything and everything.
    I second classes in Northern Virgina.
    I think they would be a serious hit with all the hobbyist here. I will say this : I discovered Sparkfun products on Saturday, discovered Microcenter sold them on Sunday and it’s now Tuesday when I have gone back to get more “stuff” and things like the Uno had sold out between Sunday and today - SOMEONE must be buying them!

No public wish lists :(
