Things that have geeky aspects to them.

For example, an item that references Dungeons and Dragons, or Star Wars, or Ghostbusters, or a comic book, would be considered geekery.

Sometimes it also refers to old toys that grown-ups might remember from their childhood, like vintage-style Lego.

Things for geeks/nerds, like science themed item, gaming, anime, computers, etc! I have a lot of geekery stuff- I'm a nerd myself. LOL

It is an oft-misused tag, unfortunately ... I find it a hard category to browse because there are so many things in it that don't belong.

Well, someone could be considered an environment geek ... but I personally wouldn't put them in geekery.
