asking for trouble

New Stockist: Shana Logic

I was really happy when Shana Logic returned to life last year after a long break as there was a real lack of a well-curated shop for indie artists, designers and makers. I’m even more excited to have my own products available there as my first stockist in the US.

Asking For Trouble at Shana Logic

If you’re in the US this is a great way to save on shipping and you’ll find some of my pins, stamps, notepads and washi tape. A few items are already sold out but more are on the way soon. I also recommend browsing the Cute Cute CUTE section to find some more artists to love.

You can check out all my stockists to see if there’s one near you, and if you’re a shop owner that would like to join the list, all the info is on my wholesale page. There’s currently a Summer Sale at Faire and additional offers for new retailers if you use my signup link.
