  • Shining Fates February Treasure hunt
    Shining Fates February Treasure hunt
    Friday 19th of February 2021 09:30:13
    Hi everyone. Shining Fates is finally released today. (19th Feb 2021). We only got a small amount, but to make it fair for everyone we will be putting small amounts up over the next few weeks. Some days none, some days a tin, some days a pin badge box, etc. There will be no warning, so keep checking back. All product is in hand, so there's no messing about with sellers on auction sies who have pre-ordered it and been denied. I'm hopeful that as more product is released the prices will come back to some normality. Everything is limited to 1 per person. Good Luck!

    Pokemon Shining Fates Releases 19th February
    Wednesday 17th of February 2021 01:13:59
    Pokemon Shining Fates is in stock on Friday. This is the most limited stock we have ever received. We will be limiting purchases to 1 per customer of each item. This is only the 1st wave of this product, We received less than 10% of our order so far, so don't worry if you can't get what you need straight away, there's more coming, and as with Champions Path the prices will quieten down later on. This demand is fuelled by speculators, and when Pokemon goes back and heavily reprints this hopefully it will make the product much more accessible for fans and players who are struggling to keep up.

  • READ BEFORE YOU ORDER!
    READ BEFORE YOU ORDER!
    Saturday 12th of September 2020 10:53:00
    Unfortunately we are still having issues with customers paying using Paypal. The stock counters aren't deducting the sale when it's made which means the cards are still remaining on the website.
    If you want to pay with Paypal, please order using a credit or debit card. Your card WILL NOT be charged. Put 'Paypal please!' in the comments and we will send you a Paypal invoice. Your order will then be logged and processed without any issues.
    We are updating the website, but transferring 55,000 listings and integrating them and all the images to 3 shops isn't as easy as I thought. :)
    I realise this defeats the purpose of checking out quickly with Paypal, but if orders are made without using this, your item may have sold before we receive the Paypal order (which usually arrives next day)

  • Hey! Where did all the cards go??
    Hey! Where did all the cards go??
    Tuesday 08th of September 2020 22:40:10
    Hi Everyone. We've had an issue with the website, cards that have sold instore didnt get removed from the website, so we've had to re-list all the cards to make sure everything is correct. Sorry for any inconvenience! The good news is we are about to list so much more than we had before, but we needed to make sure it was 100% correct. Keep checking back!

    More Pokemon cards added! Team Rocket Returns and Deoxys EX cards
    Saturday 27th of June 2020 14:27:12
    We've just added some Pokemon Team Rocket Returns EX cards from a collection we bought a while ago. The cards are beautiful.
    They are minimum PSA 9's and some may even be PSA 10's. We've priced them lower than completed eBay sales for a comparable card.
    Enjoy! We will be adding scans of the actual cards soon.

    Card Empire COVID-19 Update 
    Our No.1 priority is the safety of our staff and customers, so although the government and the venues we operate from feel it's safe to reopen we will be conducting our own customer safety and risk assessment on a day-to-day basis, and if we are not 100% happy then we may reduce our hours, days, or even close again temporarily if things start to show any signs of getting worse again. We take great pride that our stores are a fun place to visit and we want everyone to feel safe at all times and our staff to be protected and safe.
    We will update our Facebook pages and Website News posts with photo's and video's about instore safety as soon as we re-open.
