How to Order Handmade Plush from My Shop

I hand-craft each plush upon order during my scheduled Shop Releases. I try to do one Shop Release per month, and the date and time is posted on my Instagram and Facebook at least a week in advance. Many customers add an alarm to their phone to remind them of the launch since some of my plush designs sell out within a few minutes. Every Shop Release is very limited since it's just me sewing, packaging, mailing, handling social media, and answering emails to the best of my ability :)  I'm so sorry that some plush designs sell out very...

NEW: Reserve Shlii Items in Your Cart!

I’ve loved having my online shop thru Shopify except for one MAJOR problem: When a customer adds an item to their cart, another customer can purchase that same item as long as they reach Checkout first! I’m not the only artist having trouble with this, either. I’ve been researching the Shopify help boards for months, and every time someone brought up the issue, Shopify staff just didn’t *get it* at all. They seem to not understand that some of us make products by hand and have extremely limited listings that sell out in minutes when we do shop releases.  I’ve...

Final Shop Release of 2019

This year has been such an exciting flurry of events and new plush designs! I am so grateful for all of your support and encouragement throughout this year.

Babygorgon Pre-Order

At the last minute before heading out to O'Connor Brewing's Stranger Things party, I opened up preorders for a new friend: Babygorgon! It's the much rounder, quite small, and very kawaii cousin of the Stranger Things monsters. Even with all of Babygorgon's positive qualities, I'd still keep a close eye on your cat if you adopt one ... Opening up preorders Saturday night was a moment I went completely off of my business plan and schedule. Originally, I was sewing them for FantaSci, a mini con happening this weekend. But I was so excited and happy with how Babygorgon turned out that...
