I was really sad to hear that online kawaii shop Modes4u will be closing at the end of this year. We first featured them just a few weeks after we started the blog and they’ve been a firm favourite ever since.
They’ll still be adding new products for a while but if there’s something you’ve had your eye on, best to grab it as it’s unlikely to be restocked. If you’re not a regular at Modes4u, they sell kawaii character stationery, plush, toys, squishies, bento boxes, accessories and more from brands like San-X, Sanrio, Pokemon, Re-Ment, Mind Wave, Kamio, mt and Shinzi Katoh. They have big collections for Halloween and Christmas too.
They also have a huge range of cute fabric including kawaii characters, Japanese brands and seasonal/holiday themes so it’s well worth adding to your stash for future projects. We’ve previously partnered with Modes4u to make hair bows and an Easter bunny pencil case with their fabric and notions so check those posts out for more details on the quality and designs.
Modes4u ship worldwide from Singapore and there’s free international shipping for orders of 60€/US$70/£55 and above.
