New Stockist: October31st

If you wish it was Halloween all year round*, you’re going to love my newest stockist! October31st is a UK-based online store dedicated to everything spooky so you can get your Halloween fix without waiting until October.


They’ve just relaunched their website and it includes quite a few of my Little Ghosts! The range includes cards, badges, brooches, stamps and patches, plus some sticker sets that I no longer have for sale myself.


There’s lots of other spooky cuteness too, including these cute cat coasters! Check it all out at

*Personally, I would prefer 6 months of Easter and 6 months of Halloween.
