19082017 • Studio Art Notes • 🎧 : My Page - NCT Dream 》

I decided to write my notes differently this time round. And all I can say is that I think I found my new favourite way of taking notes. It was so much fun writing up my notes? And I didn’t have a worry in the world while I was writing this, unlike when I write on lined sheets? You’ll definitely see more notes like these in the future.

Do you have a master list of online shops for stim toys? Please please please haha

Since there were three pleases…!

Folks may or may not know that we have the retailer tags pages, A-L and M-Z. There’s so many retailers now that they’re difficult to search through unless you already know what you’re looking for, and they’re certainly not a rebloggable resource. I find them useful, but I’m well aware that they’re no longer useful for folks wanting a simple list. So in this post I’m going to give you the highlights, organised by category.

Please note that this master post absolutely does not include all online stim toy retailers. (Not even close. Not even remotely close.) I’m focusing on stores that are well-regarded and often referenced by the followers of this blog. In addition, I’m mostly listing stores that offer international shipping, in order to make this list useful for the largest amount of stimmers.

A huge shout-out goes to @cal3ris for the provision of the Netherlands/European stores added to this list. Thank you so very much!

You also might like to check out our autistic sellers and crafters master post for more autistic-owned stores, especially if you’re a US stimmer, as there’s many more crafters and creators well worth checking out.

I’ve noticed, in compiling this list, a distinct lack of UK or European online resources. I would be very grateful if our UK and European followers could send me a few good recommendations!

I chose this quote for the “full year calender” because I wanted to remind myself that if things get down to the hardest to cope with situation, I can make it through. (look at the cute lil Calcifer I drew in there ♡)
