Hi all! I’m in need of a little bit of a hand raising some funds to get myself overseas at the end of the year. I’ve been given an extremely exciting opportunity to visit a couple of other countries, and in all honesty I don’t believe I’m ever realistically going to have this kind of experience ever again in my life. To be able to do this, I’m selling adorable handmade jackalope plushies!
Jackalopes are an adorable little piece of American folklore, and are a cross between a jackrabbit and an antelope or deer. The story goes that cowboys would tell tales and sing songs around campfires at night and hear the jackalopes mimicking their voices and singing along from a distance.
I know a bunch of you have seen the Kawaii Collection floating around tumblr, and it never fails to astound me how many people appreciate them. I’ve since introduced a bunch of new ‘lopes that I hope will all get the same amount of love from everyone. They’re all kid safe (with the possible exception of the Geek Colelction (their glasses), parental discretion advised) and totally washable (all feature care instructions on an sewn seam tag), so they can survive for a long long time in your home with proper care. Each jackalope in the store comes with their own little character tag, which features their name, mini character bio, and a short explanation of what a jackalope is.
Even if it’s not your cup of tea, if you could reblog and share the post around I’d be immensely grateful. I’ve got a whooooooole bunch of them available to buy over at the online store, and I can ship worldwide! Cheers my lovely little nerdlings!
