Last Call For Orders + Holiday Shipping Dates

I’m getting ready to go to Japan at the weekend so here’s what’s happening while I’m away.

Tomorrow: Last Shipping Day

Tomorrow, Thursday 25th, is my last shipping day. If you want some ghosts for Halloween, my new Japan zine, a surprise box or anything else, make sure to get your order in by 11am BST to have it shipped before I go.

26th October – 12th November: No Shipping

All my shops will remain open during my trip, though there will be a limited range of products. Shipping will resume on Monday 12th November and I’ll be popping free gifts in all orders to make up for the wait. Digital products will be automatically delivered as usual throughout my trip.

Alternative Stockists

If you’re in a hurry, I’ve sent lots of stock to Hannah Zakari in Edinburgh, who will ship worldwide. If the new brooches and things aren’t on the website yet, shoot them an email and I’m sure they’ll be able to help.

Enquiries & Problems

I will have internet access during my holiday but may not be able to reply to emails until I’m back. Thank you for your patience!
