Introducing Willa and Evie: Next stocking Tuesday, April 29 at Noon

The next Oliviabolivia Hyena Cart stocking will be Tuesday, April 29, beginning at Noon EDT. There will be three carriers available for purchase. Only one OB MT per person per stocking, so pick your favorite and be logged in to Hyena Cart for the one you want. I am staggering this stocking with 10-minute increments.

If you don't already have an account at hc, you will need to register for one prior to purchasing. The cart is set up with a Buy Now option, which means the carrier goes to the first person who clicks to commit to purchase. I will only be accepting PayPal and you will have to pay immediately to reserve the carrier you select. Because these are instock Oliviabolivias, as soon as you buy the carrier, it will be packaged in a Priority Mail envelope and on its way to you the same day.
