asking for trouble

Low Stock Alert!

I finally got around to doing my pre-holiday stock check, very late, which means there are a few products that are low in stock and will either not be restocked before Christmas or will be discontinued completely. If there’s anything below that’s on your wish list, or would make a perfect gift, don’t wait too long to order.

Pins & Brooches low in stock

Quite a few of my pins & brooches are running low – the following have only 5-15 pieces left in stock. They will all be back, but not for a few months at least.

Discontinued Pins & Brooches

The following are almost gone and won’t be back, though some may return in a new design.

kawaii cards and stickers

Discontinued Cards & Stationery

These are also unlikely to be back, and most are currently on sale too.

I’ve split the last stocks across my main Shopify store and Etsy but if you’re an EU customer and need me to move something over, just send a message.
