My summer internship at Super Cute Kawaii is drawing to a close, but before I go, I’d like to share five of my favourite kawaii Etsy stores with you. All of them ship internationally.
Guts and Glitter (UK)
Jo Lucksted (UK)
We Are Extinct (Netherlands)
We Are Extinct produce unique, limited edition items like pins, stickers and patches. Once they’re gone, they’re extinct, hence the name We Are Extinct. I love analogue photography, so these kawaii Polaroid camera pins have my name written all over them.
Punkypins is another store that I’ve been a fan of for years. Punkypins recently collaborated with Sanrio to produce a line of limited edition Hello Kitty pins, and while it’s hard to pick a favourite, I just can’t resist this one featuring Hello Kitty hiding behind a slice of watermelon.
Ciali in Kawaiiland (Italy)
Hannah is a 30-something Japanophile who has never actually visited Japan. She was born in the UK, but now lives in Spain, and enjoys watching anime, reading manga and spending money she doesn’t have on things she doesn’t need, but are too cute to resist.
