“Cyber Monday has replaced Black Friday for most people and has become one of the most exciting shopping days of the year!” said Ashley Eckstein. “I get overwhelmed by the big crowds on Black Friday and prefer to shop from the comfort of my own home, but I am always looking for a deal. With FREE Shipping and a FREE autographed gift, we’ve made shopping for yourself, or the fangirl in your life, much easier.”
It’s Chewbacca’s turn to don the famous Santa hat for this year’s highly collectible Star Wars by Her Universe holiday pin.
