I've been buying a lot of stuff online recently so I though I'd just make a post to reference to the shops I found. Hopefully this will be an easier way for you (and for me :-p) to browse online stores and pick one out that will suit your interests. Enjoy!  

As of Oct. 1, 2016, I will no longer edit this post. Please be aware that some links are outdated.

Do not purchase from this store! Terrible service and an irresponsible owner. Take my word on it! I ordered items in April and I still haven't received them. Contacted the store through instagram, tumblr, and email but the owner always made excuses like "we're unable to answer emails atm", "we are currently on a break", etc. If you want the full story, read this post I made!
