After nearly 7 years, the time has come to sadly announce that Fox and Star’s virtual shop doors have closed.
It’s no secret that there has been a cloud of uncertainty over businesses for the past few years. There are a lot of challenges for retail, both big and small, offline and online. The internet is also a pretty different place than it was in 2013, when I set up the shop with a handful of washi tapes.
Bearing all of this in mind…as the last decade came to a close, it felt like the right time to look to the future and close this chapter. They say as one door closes, another opens…
I want to thank all of the wonderful customers and stationery fans that have supported this small business throughout the years. Your support has meant so much and I’m endlessly grateful - thank you!
Although the Fox and Star shop won’t be around any more, the silver lining is that most of the stationery brands can be found elsewhere online. I’ve put together a list of possible alternative stockists, which you can find here.
It’s sad news, but I hope that in some way you’ve enjoyed Fox and Star’s little stationery filled corner of the internet.
A huge thank you again for all of your support!
