So oh my goodness, are there various ways to purchase these beauties. Of course there’s etsy, then there’s Instagram through the Spreesy app, and then I just set up another shop for the website (going through shopify this time, SO much better!). $2.95 each, shipping is around $1.95 (I simply can’t get it any lower).  I will be offering them in packs soon, I’m waiting for the necessary packaging to make that happen.

Art on!
