Could you please point me to some Autistic owned stim stores? Thanks!
Sure! Please note, though, that unless otherwise specified, these stores are based in the US. For those willing to shop from neurodivergent-owned businesses (as distinct from specifically autistic) there’s a little more choice. If you’re not in the US, you’re very likely going to have to pay extra in conversion and shipping costs (which is why I don’t use ND-owned as a basis for what content goes on this blog, as cool as it is to support fellow autistic and ND creators).
If you’re an autistic crafter and you’re not on this list, it’s either because I haven’t yet heard of you, I’ve committed the terrible crime of forgetting you or I’m unsure if you’re autistic (as per the brief). Please comment; I will add your name and details!
I’m pretty sure most folks have heard of Stimtastic by now (@stimtastic), but on the off chance someone hasn’t, I’ll mention it! I don’t believe anyone has had any negative experiences with their order; the linked Tumblr is packed full of happy customers saying great things. There’s everything from fidget toys to chewables! I love my braid pendant, scented vial necklace and - while I didn’t buy it from Stimtastic because I found it here in Australia - crocheted stress balls. @werevampiwolf makes their bead rings!
@yuuriandviktorkatsuki runs UK-based Etsy store Chloe G Crafts, where she currently stocks handmade bead bracelets and soft crochet bracelets, and will stock fidgety things made from split rings.
If you know more autistic-owned places to buy great toys, please let us know by commenting on this post or sending in an ask. Tumblr has stopped showing the notes in all reblogs, and we now get traffic enough that I (mod K.A.) don’t have the spoons to click on every reblog to see if there’s been an addition. We can’t miss comments, so you’ll help us a lot by commenting. Thank you!

“I am wearing a shiffon button up, a gold lion necklace, gold bracelet, and custom Elemntri pants. My style is influenced by rock'n roll and pop culture icons such as Michael Jackson, Beyonce, Prince, Bobby Brown, Jimi Hendrix. I would even go as far as to say Little Richard. My current favorites include the pre fall 2017 Gucci campaign. The variety of outfits Prince wore for the Purple Rain tour also inspire me. I’ve dedicating my wardrobe to more silk and satin materials lately, I’ve become a big fan of blouses. One could say that I just prefer to look as luxurious as possible.”

By now most of you know about my rescue boy Spartan Sock, or Socks for short.
He’s currently in a spare 3.5 galleon I keep in case.
Instead of asking for donations help me get him into a ten galleon, please consider checking out my etsy store here: https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/KatsCreationKorner
I make earrings, pride bracelets, OTP bracelets, and custom orders, such as a bracelet with your fish’s body colours and name on it.

(In case it wasn’t obvious…I’ve been learning Welsh like a month so apologies for butchering it a bit 😂🙈 Them monolingual feels…)
I’m not going to advertise a lot, don’t worry :P
I went to a super fun workshop in Monmouth yesterday. The jewellery was so pretty and the woman who makes it is so friendly that I wanted to give you the opportunity to go and enjoy it too! You can see the bracelet I made (I’m not arty at all but I’m still really happy with it) and if you want you can also make earrings and necklaces! On top of that, if you don’t want to make something you can buy Mari Pugh jewellery there as well! I really recommend it! 😊
