Shop News: Ghosts, Keyrings & Packaging Update

Summer has given up here so I have turned my mind to Halloween! My Little Ghost has been getting into some new products to keep things spooky cute.

This was an idea I had when brainstorming for my next surprise box but decided to keep it for everyone. They look so cool – I put one on my laptop and I love seeing all the different colours appear. You can get these singly or as a pack of 2 now.

These postcards have been out of stock for a while so I completely redesigned them. They’re a cute way to celebrate Halloween with a friend as they can cut out the ghost and make it into a decoration. They’d be great party favours too so I’ve also included packs of 5 and 10 postcards at a discount.

My test keyrings have been pretty popular – and feedback has been positive – so I will be making some more very soon. If you want to grab one at the lower price, now’s the time! Choose from a Little Ghost or a Happy Cloud. I’ve got one hanging on my bag – and you can even remove the split ring and thread in a chain for a necklace instead.

Packaging Update

And a small note about packaging. I have been so pleased to see almost everyone choosing a paper bag for their stationery orders that I have decided to remove the choice of plastic packaging from all my cards and postcards. You can still request one if you really must – and I’ve left the option for notepads in case it’s for a gift. Thanks for helping reduce plastic waste – and for letting me use my stamp a lot!
