Our Woking Hours & Days – Not 24 Hours A Day, 365 A Year!

YES.  Wilcox_work-200x0

We DID say on the home page of our store that “Store Opens 24 hours a Day and All Year Round“; HOWEVER, in reality and in practice, it’s impossible for us to work non-stop for 365 days.  We work when the Post Office is open and we rest on weekends so that we can be fully charged and energized when we return to work on Monday to provide better service to our customers.

Because we might live in a time zone different to most of our customers, you, our friends, might feel a little bit anxious when trying to reach us for an urgent or important matter.  You might find the following information of our working hours helpful to decide when you can catch us online simultaneously when you are online.

Please note that our working hours are Monday through Friday, 9am to 5pm Taipei time (+8 GMT), which means:

in Berlin – Monday through Friday, 3am to 11pm
in London – Monday through Friday, 2am to 10am
in New York City – Sunday through Friday, 9pm to 5am
in Paris – Monday through Friday, 3am to 11pm

Hello Kitty Collectible Stamps from 7-11 Stores in Taiwan!

Today I take the role as a reporter from Taiwan, covering the news from 7-11 stores in Taiwan about the newly-released Hello Kitty collectibles stamps by 7-11 stores.

Da da! Here comes the kawaii troop made up of Hello Kitty stamps in 12 designs! Getting  a closer look, somehow they look similar two by two but then different one by one ?

That’s right! Under the familiar faces, each one of them has her own style and costume. Let’s now turn the camera to Hello Kitty and let her SAY HELLO  to our fans!
Wow! After the short introduction, you see they come in pairs of six!

Which is your favorite? : )

How about the BIG RED Chinese Costume Hello Kitty? I found them very fitting for the occasion as when I’m writing the article, the Chinese New Year is just around the corner!  I really should try to do my purchase as much as possible in 7-11 stores in order to collect the “points” to exchange the Hello Kitty stamps for free!

Move your eyes a bit further on the right and then you see Hello Kitty with her Valentine Daniel~ Daniel is the ONLY BOY in this troop of 12! This pair is very fitting for the upcoming Valentine’s Day too!  7-11 stores said that they are also in limited quantity and whoever comes first, get them first!

Then we see Snow White and the evil Queen, Peter Pan and the Fairy, Little Redhood and Big Bad Wolf, Prince Frog and Princess, all cute characters in their fitting costume from fairy tales that we are all familiar with.

Here comes the question, how much it costs to get a stamp?

Here’s the rules of game by 7-11 stores. To sum up, it costs me to shop approx. $7 in 7-11 stores to get 4 points in order to buy a stamp at $1.2 (with 4 points).

Very tempting!!~~

Now let’s take a look to see how these Kitty stamps can make our life more kawaii?

Can be used to accessorize our handy items, be it on the bag, keychain…etc.

Can be used at your notes and personal organizer..etc.

Can accompany you at the office..
Or with your craft projects~
When you write a note to your friends or colleagues, don’t forget to stamp a message with Hello Kitty to share Kitty’s loving energy !
7-11 stores also offer a gift box, a house for these stamps!! For an extra of $4.00, you get a gift box to house the stamps!
In the left side of box, each stamp has its own place with a fitting label already.
On the right side of box is the castle for Chinese costume Hello Kitty pair!  But you could also decide which pair should stand at the castle as you wish!
For the gift box, an ink pad is alos included in the purchase and has its own place inside too.
I will be collecting these stamps myself but I have not yet decided if I should offer my collections for sale in my store. : ) As you see, it costs more than what I spend to own these stamps as they are offered in limited quantity and exclusive edition!  But hey, I might offer some of my collections as gift to our fans on A Cute Shop fans page very soon!  So please stay tuned with our activity at fans page at A Cute Shop Fans Page!
This completes our special coverage of the Hello Kitty collectible stamps of 7-11 stores in Taiwan today. Thanks for watching! : )

Can’t Believe This Hello Kitty D-Cut Bottled Water is SO HARD to get!

Published on June 28, 2012, by in Sophie' Blog, Store News.

About more than a week ago, I shared an interesting Hello Kitty product from here on our store fans page. To my surprise, this share of Hello Kitty D-Cut bottled water gets unusually many “likes”  than my other sparingly posted updates on the page.

A few friends on Fans Page were asking how and how much to get this cute item so I decided to call around the available Family Mart stores to check.

Then it’s another surprise.   I checked all the Family Mart stores near my house and office and all I got is the same answer:

“Sold Out” & “Don’t know if they will be stocked again”.

At that time, I read from from news and called up the manufacturer also and was told that about 1/3 of the limited quantity were sold out at the moment. I was reassured that I could get more if  I could just contact the nearby Family Mart stores.  That was about 1 or 2 weeks after this cutie Hello Kitty product was released into the market for the first time.

Giving up on a cute item and not being able to source the items I want, particularly this cute Hello Kitty D-Cut bottled water just at a store near me, is totally not my style at all!

So I called up a few Family Mart stores again. One of the manager was willing to save them for me, IF I would go into their store and pay for them first, even though she was really skeptical that they could get more again as they just tried to restock a few ago but did not get.

So I went to the Family Mart store around my office, paid for 2 dozens of Hello Kitty water first, thinking I should be able to get more afterwards (It’s just water, isn’t it?).  The manager felt totally having no confidence at all that she would be getting more in but I reassured her that I have done my research and there should still be 2/3 of the limited quantity out there and she could get if she could just wait.

About more than a week after, I received this expected and very happy phone call that my Hello Kitty water is in!

Dara, here’s my two dozens of Hello Kitty D-Cut mineral water!

But the surprise for this Hello Kitty water still does not end. The manager told me that all this water is SOLD OUT, even for the city of Taipei and northern cities in Taiwan. (Oh my goodness! I should have tried to visit more Family Mart stores!@@)

Today as I’m writing this blog post, I checked the manufacturer site only to confirm the same thing –

(It says the first 200,000 pcs of Hello Kitty mineral water is sold out. For future release, please pay attention to news releases by Family Mart).

What a bummer!

Luckily at least I still have my 2 dozens share of this cute Kitty item.

And once I have it, it’s not hard to understand why it’s so popular – because it’s just so Kittyish cute!

It’s got the Hello Kitty d-cut 3D body and tail  as a bottle..

And the bottle size is just good for keeping at hand or put in your personal bag!  The size is even good for your small kids who would love to keep this bottle at their hand!

Read more local bloggers’ sharing of their finds for this cute item!



Finally and MOST IMPORTANTLY, I’m not writing this blog for NOTHING. The good news is rolling out for our friends and customers!

NOW, we are holding a summer party and doing a GIVE-AWAY for friends who would just share on facebook/twitter / Pinterest about your find!

The party is on! DON’T MISS IT!
