Prefer to shop in person? We do occasionally pop up around Sydney - we might not return to the same site, so it is recommended you place an order for the item you like, provided it hasn't already been purchased by someone else x
Upcoming: please read first before scrolling down.
Thank you for your ongoing support! As you may have noticed, things at Mochi La Vie HQ have slowed down significantly since the beginning of 2023 - the reason being that I will be going on maternity leave from August 1 2023-mid November 2023. During the first two weeks of August, the anticipated despatch date for any orders will be the 11th August 2023 (unless your order includes something that is made to order). For all other orders and until the lead up to July, orders are despatched as per usual on the next business day.
In July there may be a few days' delay in despatching orders as I am expecting to run low in stock due to a pop up.
If you are looking to purchase for yourself or treat someone special, I recommend placing an order as early as you can to avoid delay as I pride myself in despatching quickly and getting your goodies as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience and understanding, and looking forward to seeing you while I am still active this year!
JULY 2023: SMASH! Sydney Anime & Manga Show July 1&2 ICC Sydney: Artist Alley (Table location: B01)
SMASH! exclusive promotion: MYSTERY BAGS
There will be 10 (ten) mystery bags available on Saturday, with another 10 (ten) mystery bags available on Sunday - making it a total of 20 (twenty) mystery bags. Mystery bags are $35 each and will contain at least 2 pieces of handmade goods (eg. 2 pairs of earrings) and will be well worth over $35 value. Inside the mystery bags will be a combination of new and previous collections, jewellery or textiles - some you may not have seen before or were prototypes. Each bag is guaranteed one piece of jewellery. Mystery bags are not exchangeable or refundable and can only be opened once chosen and paid for. Mystery bags are not to be restocked and cannot be reserved - I will only be bringing 10 per day. Good luck!
Hey guys, this is the first time I will table at a con and I am SUPER excited (the type of level of excitement where you look like you're kinda chill, but deep down your sock is slipping inside your boots - bad analogy but you kinda get what I mean) - this is like an absolute dream come true and I feel like this is such a huge milestone for me.
I will try my best to bring as much stock as possible, but due to physical constraints and not knowing really how much to actually bring/make, I recommend that you visit me earlier rather than later as in between con day restocks are not physically possible (each item is individually handmade and whatever I manage to make is all that I will have for the weekend). I will try to be well stocked for most of the classics/ popular items and hopefully will have some SMASH! exclusives or cool things (still in the works).
I also ask that you be gentle with me and my stall if you can as kindness can go a long way - by the time SMASH! rolls around, I will be heavily pregnant and I prefer tabling alone (though I will have company with me... just not in a productive/ salesy way), so I will be working solo and trying my best to assist you! Please also note that SMASH! is a ticketed event, so if you are interested to see the show, visit me and other artists and just overall join in the fun, please ensure that you have purchased an entry ticket as SMASH! tends to get sold out pretty quickly and to avoid disappointment.
I am REALLY excited and I hope to see you there - even if you come around to say hi, I really appreciate it and I love you all.
