    I would like to know where I can buy “Done by Deer”‘s products in London ( physical stores)?
    Appreciate if you could provide me with some tips.

    Thanks

    • admin 11 months Reply

      Hello Anabel, Thanks for your interest in our website. To have the best possible answer, it would be wiser to contact Done by Deer directly: hello@donebydeer.com. They should be able to give you a very accurate reply. On their website, they only talk about web stores (with a long list of them in the UK). I hope you will be able to find what you need. Kind Regards, Florian.
