Latest Christmas Shipping Dates 2013

We just received the lastest shipping dates for Christmas 2013 by Hong Kong Post. The post offices in Hong Kong release a chart every autumn, so that you can see until when your orders have to be mailed the latest so that they still arrive before Christmas Day.

Please check this year’s chart below carefully, as for many countries the latest shipping dates are already at the end of November!

However, Hong Kong Post stresses that the dates are provisional, they are worked out based on the requirements of overseas postal administrations. As the dates below are no guarantee and we strongly recommend that order earlier than the dates shown below.

New shop category: Fabric Bundles

We have been selling fabric bundles for a while, but you might have had a hard time finding them, as they were scattered in all our fabric categories. As we already carry quite a selection we now decided to open a new fabric bundles category where you can find all different kinds of bundles we carry in one spot: Fat Quarters, Roll ups, charm packs and ten squares.

Fabric bundles are great for sewing little accessories and applications, but they also make a great gift. In the next days and weeks we will also add quite a few new bundles by Robert Kaufman.

If you’re looking for a kawaii bargain now is the time. We went through all the products in our shop and put more than 1,400 of them on sale. What a crazy number! The products in our ‘On sale’ category have discounts from 10% to 40%, some single items are even 80% off the original prize. So it’s definitely worth looking through all those pages. And don’t hesitate if you spot something you like, because we won’t get any of the items which are on sale again. Of course there will be hundreds and hundreds of new products coming in the next weeks and months, after all we’re creating new space on our shelves by putting so many items on sale ;-).

San-X shop modes4u: More than 2000 products and special editions

Our partnership with the Japanese stationary and gift manufacturing company San-X really flourished in the past years. Last year we were super proud that we carried almost 1,000 San-X products in our shop, this year the amount has more than doubled. By now we carry more than 2,100 San-X products on modes4u.com. It’s not such a big surprise when you keep in mind that Rilakkuma is the most popular character in our shop, and also San-X’ most successful character.

It’s also a big honor that we are allowed to sell limited Rilakkuma editions. To celebrate Rilakkuma’s 10th anniversary San-X has been releasing quite a few super limited plush toy editions, which are almost exclusively available in Japan. Only a handful of retailers in the whole world are allowed to sell them outside of Japan and we are one of them. This is why you can buy the Rilakkuma zodiac sign edition or the Rilakkuma Chinese New Year edition at our shop.

We will keep ordering many new products from all the different San-X characters and soon we will hopefully have 3,000 San-X products in our shop.

We are one of the few international shops worldwide allowed to sell the limited Rilakkuma zodiac signs edition

Chinese New Year Holiday: No shipping until February 14th

Chinese New Year is a HUGE thing in Hong Kong and Asia. The ‘Year of the Snake’ starts on February 10th followed by three days of public holiday. This is basically the only time of the year where everything in Hong Kong is closed, as as many people as possible get the opportunity to be with their families.

Due to the public holidays our office will be closed from Monday, February 11th to Wednesday, February 13th. The post offices will open again on February 14th and we will ship your orders as fast as possible. Please be a little patient if you order over the holidays, we will try our best to catch up as fast as possible. You will receive a shipping confirmation as soon as we shipped your order.

Happy Chinese New Year!

Our office is closed over Chinese New Year
