Almost Gone!

At the time of writing, Fried Egg enamel pin seconds are down to the last 3 and won’t be back. There’s only 1 Ghost & 1 Cookie stamp seconds, 2 sets of yellow acrylic stars and 2 copies of my book-themed Oddments zine.

I’ll be closing the sale on Sunday, 6th April so have a last look.
