Any recs on shopping services to buy from Xianyu? The SS I've used before no longer takes Paypal
anyone know where i can get this?
Im about to place my first taobao order, is spreenow good? Typically how long does it take for them to verify items, like a day?
>>10414739Superbuy is the best imo
Can someone help me translate a small message from English to Chinese? I've hit a language barrier with the seller, they just don't understand me at all and I need to communicate something about my order to them
Has anyone got any links to cute makeup brushes? I've seen the cat paw ones by flower knows just wondering if there were any other cute ones.
My haul from March finally arrived! Hallelujah! I wonder if a ship another haul now, if it will take another 3 months...
I'm new to buying on Taobao through Spreenow. There's a dress I want but I'm not sure if any accessories (headbow, wrist cuffs, blouse, etc.) are included. Do I just ask the Spreenow folks what all is included?
>>10414732Pretty much none accepts paypal for it anymore due to idiots doing paypal claims over flawed secondhand items.
>>10415593Oh dang this one is beauty, thanks anon
>>10415593why do they always slap unnecessary shit like that baby writing on these? Would be 1000x cuter without it and just a cute pearl dangling there or nothing at all but the ribbon
>>10414739Spreenow is good
>>10416130I was just thinking that, it gives off unnecessary ddlg vibes and it's so cute otherwise
>>10415819did u use a shopping service or direct taobao?
I went overboard with buying cute iPhone cases
Planning on doing a decent haul but waiting until pay day. on friday.I want it all so bad .
>>10416163dang how many iphones u got
>>10416180only one. yeah, I have a problem.
>>10415819Hope my march box comes soon. What shipping line did you use?
>>10416163Link the iPhone cases? They look super cute
>>10416235https://m.intl.taobao.com/detail/detail.html?id=619820603171&spm=a2141.7631671.content.47https://shop.m.taobao.com/shop/shop_index.htm?user_id=2200772123733&spm=a2141.7631563.1.shop&Sorry about mobilefagging, the second link is the shop that sells the rest of the phone cases!
What shops can you suggest me if I'm looking more for OPs classical style with beige, white, pastel colors, soft fabrics (chiffon, etc) with a simple design? Preferably on the cheaper side too.Also>bought my first petticoat off taobao many years ago>check tag to see what brand it's from>it's classical puppets>look at their shop now>tfw the prices and those designsholy shit
>>10416041The listing should tell you what is included. Everything is typically sold separately, unless the listing says something like "jsk + send headdress">>10416130Baby (baobei) in Chinese means like precious, treasured thing or person. It doesn't have ddlg connotations or anything like that in their culture.
Which term should I use to search for headbows specifically?
My ss just sent me a message that the new Beijing lockdowns fucks up orders again, o well.
Anybody else having problems with stuff being returned to sender before it leaves China (EMS)? Have a box of some value which Spreenow sent near as to a month ago, took a week to get to Shenzhen customs (from SN in HK), returned to sender, 2 weeks to get back to Spreenow, resent (without telling me anything as to why it was returned), a week later back at Shenzhen customs, turned around again returned to sender according to the tracking. I've ordered many thousands of dollars of stuff through SpreeNow over the years, never this problem. Nothing I ordered is in any way remotely not exportable (or not importable).
Just hoping for small photoshoots at this point.
Heres a great translate from the other day I thought everyone would enjoy!
Does anyone know what term I could use to find bun covers similar to pic related?
>>10416369Based off your post I was worried their pettis were expensive now. Looks like they are still the same price, thankfully. But it seems crazy their main pieces are just as expensive as brand now, wtf?
>>10418523If youre thinking of buying the CP petti, I have heard the quality has decreased quite a lot compared to when they were the number 1 recommendation years ago! They go flat and deflate much faster now and are not as poofy.
>>10418593Shit I just ordered a classical puppets Petticoat, that's annoying. :C
Just got my Honey Cake MTO in the other day! Anyone know of cute pancake/bear themed accessories? I got the bag in as well, but I'm open to other bags as well.
>>10418633BTSSB has a ton of bear stuff
>>10418638This is the taobao thread; I assume they want offbrand acessories and things.
Has anyone else had trouble reaching Zhongshan Express on Aliwangwang? Forgive me if I'm asking for old news, but I didn't see anything in the archive. They're never online and my messages have been unread for days. If I use the Xiaomi app, it says the forwarder is offline even though it's still within their business hours. Is the only USA forwarder left dead?
>>10418835you have to contact them through the taobao website now
current fav/best ss and why? the spreadsheet's outdated so I wanna hear some gull opinions before making orders.
>>10418843Superbuy. Low fees, proof pics, and quick customer service
any guides out there on how to order from xianyu? no clue how to use the app other than searching
>>10418843i use 42agent (formerly taobaoring) and they're pretty good
>>10418842Where on the website? If I click on this it contacts someone from the domestic shipping company and they can't help me.
>>10418843Superbuy for regular stuff, prefer 42agent for preorders. They're both really good.
>>10418843Formerly superbuy but the shipping lines are getting ridiculous in cost in comparison to the timeline of actually receiving (in the us). Wegobuy is reskinned superbuy for brand knockoffs but their Guangdong ems line is really good. Cssbuy has cheaper shipping and fedex available but they charge 4-6% service charge. They have a more accurate exchange rate than superbuy who is always trying to cheat me out of some yuan
>>10417017I've had this problem with spreenow twice. Once in December and once in Feburary. It seems to be something to do with the value being too high? Both times my packages were marked down to $100
>>10419357Interesting, this parcel items cost is 2197 CNY add domestic, intl, and commission and it comes to 3461 CNY total; so it's fairly sizeable.Of course this has to be the biggest order I've ever done that I get the problems with!
Does anyone know if/where I might be able to find this set on taobao? Saw it reccomended on Amazon it was over $100 just for the duvet cover and pillowcases
>>10419772Use the taobao image search
Are some shops closed or something? Made a order back in mid April still waiting for a bonnet from Surface Spell. That was from my first haul and made my second one 2 weeks ago and most of that has already arrived at Spreenow. Spreenow said that the bonnet was suppose to be shipped at the beginning of this month but nothing.
>>10419855Dragon boat festival in june
>>10419855there's a second wave of the virus happening rn, apparently you live under a rock
>>10419775Maybe I'm just bad at it but I couldn't find it.
>>10420181https://detail.tmall.com/item.htm?spm=a230r.1.999.6.7954523czvbWr4&id=610594351964&ns=1fucked up the link last time.
I'm having issues spreenow. They say Chinese Ems is closed and won't ship but other people are having things come out of China? Ems was the cheapest shipping option but it seems weird that they're still down.

>>10421026>>10417017See my post where I'm having similar problems with SpreeNow right now, and somebody who replied the same a couple months back.Might be time to find a new SS.
I read the faq and I looked in the spreadsheet for any custom sized gothic/ega brands similar to sheglit, atepie, or boz, but couldn't find anything. does it exist? am I just missing it? can you suggest any brands like this or suggest search terms I could use? thank you!>inb4 lose weightI'm doing it, but getting down to sheglit/boz dimensions is gonna take me a few more years.
>>10421157fyi Boz's Cattleya Hood OP can accommodate like an XL size. Their sizing is so weird, I have pieces that I could lose a couple pounds to look better in, some that fit me like a glove, and then that piece, which I'm swimming in. I think you could fit two me's in it. Don't write Boz off yet, just shop savvy.
>>10421133These are all the shops/sales of the exact same person. I'm sure they want the original shop link if it's from Taobao.
>>10421026>>10421147I'm having the exact same problem. I'm planning on closing up my last orders and switching to 42agent
>>10421230I don't think it's taobao, the seller is probably just scalping sanrio bags licensed for Singapore only
>>10421244no, anon the OP wants the bootleg taobao one, not the real one.
>>10421133this girl's scalping is how i saw the bag in the first place. i want to know the original shop and get it for a nonscalped price. thanks though.
>>10421244>>10421306the seller says she's getting them in bulk from taobao.
>>10421133Lol I just google reverse image searched it, it isn't even official Sanrio. https://www.devilinspired.com/Summer%20Fairy%20Apparel%20and%20Accessories.-devilinspired.com/melody-doll-bag-by-summer-fairy.htmlIt's cheaper than on LM but devilinspired still scalps like crazy- the original price was 99 yuan. I can't find the original listing on the page but this is the shop link. https://shop160036401.taobao.com/ I think your best bet may be xianyu, contacting a facebook SS to search for it, or finding a cheaper reseller
>>10421334So then the chick on LM is selling illegal copies? or lying that it is liscensed?
>>10421334>>10421499Singapore had a bunch of my melody exclusive stuff earlier this year. I will ask a friend if they recognize that bag when they get up later.
>>10421514Samefag but the mymelo anniversary stuff from this year doesn't have that motif at all link to blog.>https://www.google.com/amp/s/girlstyle.com/sg/amp/164759947527135/51171Also this looks more similar to the bags LizLisa used to do.
Anyone got suggestions for a plain leather mary jane shoe with a thick/winter tread? I'd prefer X straps. Translation suggestions for the search bar would also be hugely appreciated. I'm looking for something I can wear casually and to low risk work environments that wouldn't look overly out of place next to tactical boots. I don't want to wear my heavy steel toes in an office building.
>>10414729im looking for some gold diamond otks has anyone seen any on taobao
are there any Taobao stores that sell cute hair ties?
Dreading to see what the shipping cost will end up as for this..
Shipping SAL from China right now is wild.Package 1: Shipped April 25, still in Japan (in Shanghai's dispatch somewhere??)Package 2: Shipped May 29, in New York as of June 26 (went through Shanghai 10 days after Package 1 arrived there)
I'm having some trouble finding the original store these are from. Does anyone have a link to Bao Zou?
Is it worth paying for EMS instead of SAL right now?
>>10427580Depends on where you're at. EMS isn't shipping to a ton of countries.
anybody have the original link for these shoes? i wanna preorder but dont wanna pay the hiked up devillinspired price
>>10427708ugh forgot to add the pic these are the shoes in question from lullaby
>>10427580no. get the absolute cheapest option, it's gonna take forever anyway
>>10426444look through the spreadsheet
>>10427580Nah, I had two packages on the way, the first one was SAL and the second one was EMS. SAL arrived after about 2 months, EMS took about 1 and a half months.
>>10427708Do you mean the taobao link?https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a1z10.3-c-s.w4002-17409558639.11.3d15754b1lb9tW&id=621368069342
>>10426850I can beat thatParcel 1: dispached March 13, still not in the USA. Last tracking was June 16. Parcel 2: May 25 from proxy, arrived June 7Both EUB
>>10428173Oh jeez, gull. May our packages return from the germ-ware soon.
randomly found that, maybe some people like ithttps://detail.tmall.com/item.htm?spm=a230r.1.999.3.53fe523cM9VTrA&id=604579432490&ns=1&skuId=4409972267677
Taobao's forcefully redirecting me to world.taobao and not letting me switch off of it, even when logged in. Has anyone found a fix to this? I hate not having image search.
Does anyone have the link to this shop? Putting in Yukine's Box taobao turned up nothing and image search also found nothing.
>>10428584This has been happening for me too. Dunno how to avoid the 'homepage' redirecting to world.taobao but I just run a random search and then the image search is on the results page.
>>10428584>>10429049log in newfags
>>10429061Learn2read. Already tried that and it doesn't work.
>>10428590Thanks anon. No idea why image search didn't work.
Not much of a haul but I ordered a few things.
>>10429536Dang that gaming mouse looks nice.
>>10429749Shit u right desu I didn't realize Decepticons came in pink senpai
>>10429749>>10429759Maybe it's a region exclusive product? Idk I find there's a lot of pink colour variants of things on Taobao that I can't find anywhere else. I found it by looking for "cute mouse" and skipping over the too cheap to be a good product Sailor Moon and Cardcaptor Sakura ones. Once I get it I can do a review and see if it's actually good. Here's the link: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=615732589187

>>10430033>>10430022My bad, linked the same post twice.
>>10428584>>10429049It's a change that Taobao made on purpose for whatever reason, I can only switch when I browse with a chinese proxy, everything else is stuck at world.
>>10421026Just got notification that Spreenow has shipped my package for the third time now with EMS, 1st time way more than a month ago returned from Shenzhen customs, 2nd time around sent 3 weeks ago returned from Shenzhen customs, now here we go again, what's the bet it gets turned around for the third time again.
China almost doubled the price of EMS to China starting from July, just a heads up.
I'm searching for a pink classic blouse if someone has one on their wishlist would be great to share the link, thanks
Anyone who uses Superbuy know what this means? I'm confused.
>>10431143If you use their forwarding service (kind of like Tenso), the address has changed.
Is there any way to withdraw your balance on spreenow? I got refunded for something from 2taobao and now I have $140 sitting in there.
>>10417334>that rhodes island bag>that cat hatlinks...?
Pretty happy that Lyre Ivy still had some leftover JSKs because I decided I didn’t want it the first time around. Bummed it wasn’t the wine one but brown is nice too!

Any good places for shoes like demonias and that sort of style?
Anyone have a link for these Diamond Honey strawberry aprons if still available? There is someone reselling them on LM but they are known for scalping taobao and have shitty feedback.
baby's first little taobao haul, mostly brought on by the joy I felt at finally finding a shop selling oshibudo cosplay
tfw didnt read this thread before placing an order with spreenow They've had my items for weeks now and won't even put them in a box and lie to me about it being shipped out
Just made a nice little haul using 42agent as the proxy service. First taobao order. Wish me luck!1 of 2
2 of 2 for my haul. Btw anyone know of a good basket bag? I really like the ones liz lisa has but want taobao options
>>10432838is it the same bitch who scalped the melody bags? i contacted the original store and she bought out their entire stock of it just to scalp so that no one else could get it from taobao. ugh
>>10433256Link to the cardigan please?
>>10433259Nah ClosetforDollz isn't it. It's fucking Kokoro scalping ToAlice and Diamond Honey most of the time with her 15 fucking negatives that I will never not be confused by.
>>10433279At this point I wonder if it would be doing boobs on LM A service to constantly post the original taobao link with price in the comments of any seriously scalped listings (where the person is clearly selling a ton of multiples they bought)
>>10433281*oh goodness, "noobs" not boobs. Phoneposting.

>>10433281I'm somwhat of a noob myself and I've considered doing the same thing! Do it anon, let the noobs know about all the scalping. Maybe they'll lower their prices if they're called out
>>10431171Isn't everything they do a forwarding service? Like they buy the item and forward it to you? I've only used them once (for a restricted item, I usually just order without a SS) and I don't want to fuck it up.
>>10433644They mean, if you buy something directly from some place in China outside of SuperBuy and give them the SuperBuy warehouse address to send it there. If you are having SuperBuy do the buying for you, then this doesn't apply to you.
can anyone recommend some good pastel loliable cardigans please?

What shipping method are you guys using from the US? Not sure if I should place an order if even EMS is gonna take months.
>>10434142SAL since it will take forever anyway

Has any non European anon here ever bought using Netherlands Railway as shipping option? Bhiner is offering it as the cheapest option for me (I'm in America) and I'm really wondering how that works.
>>10430468Third time now the same SpreeNow EMS package turned around... 广州市, 退回妥投 Guangzhou City, return for proper investment. It was looking like it was almost going to make it out of China for a bit this time, but alas no.I kinda wish SN would just admit defeat and give me an option to "upgrade" to a different shipping method.
Are there any shops that sell blouses that fit 110 cm bust
Does anyone have experience using Chinese Lolita Updates (Facebook) as a shopping service?I know their rates are higher, but the instant messaging and the focus on lolita makes it seem less intimidating for a newb like me.
>>10436402>I know their rates are higher, but the instant messaging and the focus on lolita makes it seem less intimidating for a newb like me.I don't. but save your money for big hauls rather than paying them a lot for a few items and shipping.
>>10436418Agreed; definitely always put in for stuff that goes over their limit so they dont charge you the extra for a small order and so you don't waste more on shipping. And be careful to make sure an item isn't a preorder item or it may delay your whole order

are there any shops with good wristcuffs? i used the spreadsheet and i mostly got bracelets or wristcuffs with one strip of lace and ribbon glued on
>>10436402They way overcharge for shipping. I was very unhappy about that the one time I used them. I recommend Superbuy, they have 24/7 live chat support if needed.

what are some Taobao stores that sell decora-related accessories?
Hopefully someone can help me with this.I'm trying to order some blouses, and the following message shows up on the deposit page:本页面为【定金预约页面】,不可用花呗(如想用花呗请拍全款预约)Which google is translating to roughly "flowers not available, if you want to use flowers please use the full reservation"What does flowers mean in this context? I'm assuming it's supposed to be something else.
>>10439512This is the deposit page, they don’t accept the payment plan app花唄 for deposit.
>>10439515Thank you so much anon! So just to be sure, this is only in reference to some outside app which I won't be using, so I can still purchase this normally, correct?
>>10433258Link for the bag anon? It looks amazing!
>>10439525Yeah you can buy it, but it also said they have another reservation page where you can pay in full right away for this same item.

First-time Taobao shopper here. Europe.I've recently ordered some things through a SS, but I still have a few items on my list that I'm interested in. I've already spent more than I wanted to on fashion this month, but I've seen people say that if you place a Taobao order, you should place a large one so the shipping fees are worth it. So... what's a "large" order?So far I've ordered a blouse, KC, and a few wigs. There's still all sorts of accessories, shoes, and blouses on my list that I'd save for a later order, maybe next month. Will I regret that? Will I overpay on shipping fees if I wait, or is my current order big enough so it doesn't make a difference? Am I just being stupid?
>>10441658fellow EU here, I personally check the weight of my items/total package and check the prices of shipping in correlation. Say you currently have 1.5kg as your package weight, and your shipping option lists a set price for all packages < 2kg, you could definitely add some small accessories!
Hey yall guess who actually updated---70+ dead links removed, all store ratings up to date and slowly going through adding new stuff; please feel free to respond here or add to the suggestions page of the sheet if there's anything particular you'd like added in! I don't really frequent this board anymore, but I'll be checking through the archive as well as keeping an eye on this particular thread as I update
Does anyone know where to get cute zori like in the picture?Pic is from Empty Wardrobe, but their shoes are too short for my giant feet. I'm 25.5/26cm.>>10442083Thanks so much! This spreadsheet has become a new hobby for me, by now
>>10442083You're a hero
>>10442083TY anon! I was afraid you'd abandoned it
>>10442323>>10442332>>10442337No worries! I'd been taking out occasional links here and there but hadn't had a chance to do a full overhaul since covid started. Been doing "How to Tao" panels and workshops locally too before everything went down pandemic-wise, which was taking up a bit of my spare time.(I also just realized that someone last thread made a copy and added a bunch of new shops etc as well; if you're here and want to be added on as a collaborator to the original file to keep things simpler, please let me know! I'll give you edit access and we can keep it going stronger than ever together)
>>10442323those aren't traditional so it will be harder let me try out some search terms, or you can try using the ones in that listing.
>>10442425I tried using the terms in the listing (on mobile rn, so I can't login to Taobao to copypaste them; basically the ones that Google translates as 'wooden clogs', it's 3 characters and results in various zori & geta results), and combined them with cute/lolita.What I'm looking for needs to have black as a base colour for the body of the shoe and a red patterned fabric. That's really very common. It gets difficult with the size (25.5-26cm) and style (heel, preferably with bow, with or without a charm inside of the heel idc, cute (a.k.a. suitable for wa lolita)).Thanks for your help!
>>10442406I was the anon that has been updating the new spreadsheet since covid started. I unfortunately lost someone to covid and my life has been a bit of a mess since which is why the updates slowed. I'm not sure how you want to do things since I've changed things quite a bit on the new sheet but if you would rather take over again I'm fine with being a collaborator or adding you to the new more updated one. I don't mind either way.
>>10442494Hi anon, I'm really sorry to hear that; my grandmother just passed this week as well so I completely get what you mean. Half of this current spreadsheet update is me launching myself into tasks to avoid life lmaoI've actually already been merging a lot of the helpful changes and cleanup you did into the original (along with my own recent updates) via a spreadsheet comparison tool so we don't lose any progress. If you let me know your preferred email I'll gladly add you into it with equal access to myself!
>>10442494your changes were shit
Anyone bought dresses from Yupbro? How is the quality and fit? They have so many pre-orders up that I love, but I haven't heard anything about them.
>>10442589uncalled for? they added in a lot of missing listings and descriptions, saving me a ton of work desuthat said if there are changes you'd like to see specifically please let me know! I'm trying to get someone onboard to help out with plus size resources since I don't know jack shit about that for the most part
>>10442543>>10442624Thank you! You can add me at firstname.lastname@example.org I'm also plus sized so I can gladly handle that area.
my order is stuck in customs, they want me to pay the big bucks... what do I dooo
Just paid a $470USD shipping quote. God, when I saw how much it was I was almost sick. They had to split my package to 3 shipments. Not sure if I saved any money buying from Taobao vs. AliExpress at this point. >>10442671Is it worth abandoning? Otherwise as other Anon said, pay and cry. If it gets send back and they reship you'll have to pay postage again, which is like paying the customs fee anyways. I have learned many expensive lessons from Taobao.
>>10442700$470 for how much stuff?
>>10442700Geez anon what did you order to get such a hefty shipping fee? Bags and shoes? Genuinely curious because I have a lot of those sitting in my cart and I'm dreading the shipping already.
>>1044270635kg. This also included their service fee.>>10442707This was me >>10426783 but then my SS gave me the all clear to ship flammables.. so I bought 100+ bottles of Gel Polish and some other shit.I'll add I'm also in NZ so after the currency conversion I literally just spent $700+ NZD on shipping. I have to laugh otherwise I will cry. But I sure as hell will be staying away from online shopping for a while.
>>10442710>>10442700Oh shit, anon. I salute you.I'm >>10442671 and I think reading your comment is what's going to help me sleep tonight.Not worth abandoning btw. 2 dresses, 3 blouses, and I really only bought what I absolutely adore. You're right, I'll see it as a lesson... I just wish it hadn't overlapped with other bills>>10442677I will, thanks
Anyone know how to say "face mask"? I'm looking for polyester ones.
>>10442710I'm also buying 100+ bottles bottles of gel polish with some UV lamps and now I fear how much shipping will be.Might have to rethink what I am getting, thanks for indirectly teaching me a lesson
>>10442083thank you based spreadsheet anon
For some unknown reason, my parcel keeps going back and forth in shanghai, does that location have some issues rn?
>>10442710Jesus thats a big order anon. Its nice they were able to split it up!
>>10442767gel nail polish isn't flammable tho.
>>10443880To be honest I think if it was one big order it would have been cheaper! But the size of the items pushed it over to volumetric, which then made the cost sky rocket. >>10443886I think just cos its nail polish shaped they never wanna send it. I've asked so many SS if they will post gel and they always say no.
how does 42 agent do 2 part payments? there's a piece i want but it has 2 part payment and i'm worried
>>10444147ask them about it
>>10436252For completeness, SpreeNow EMS box of (not CGL stuff) finally arrived after having gone through 4 different tracking numbers and I forget how long. I didn't ever get a notice of the latest tracking number I thought it was still in China going back to SN again until it arrived on my doorstep this morning, latest tracking number took 7 days from pickup in Guangzhou to delivery in NZ.
>>10414729Should the taobao link to Babyball be added to the Store spreadsheet?
anyone ever bought a gaming chair from taobao? would it just be worth it to buy one from amazon instead?
>>10445414it will be the same shit so order off amazon if it's a 50$ difference or so.
>>10445414i imagine the shipping costs would be killer
>>10445415>>10445415Yeah, that’s what I was thinking too about shipping. Thanks!
anyone know what i can search to find reusable shopping bags? wanting to be more eco-friendly and figured i'd just get some with my taobao order.
Does anyone know the original Taobao shop/brand these are from? I can only find them on Spreepicky and sites like that.
anyone know any shops that sell rosettes, specifically strawberry themed ones? the only two ive seen are the infanta one and the rosette posted earlier in the thread.
>>10442710That feel when 2 of the packages arrive in country and one still stuck in China. Dammit I want to open everything in one day but there is no way I'll be able to not open the 2 that arrive. >>10446692Try https://tb.cn/h.VtYb7wU?sm=dc6462Sells some amazing strawberry themed hats and bags, probably has rosettes but cant check whole store cos sharing from mobile. Let me know if the link doesnt work!
>>10446626Try 原创高腰少女宽松原宿软妹休闲裤 looks like they're sold by everyone. That brings up some as cheap as ¥35 and ¥100, but I doubt there is a store with the original, looks like they're mass produced.

What are some good search terms to find ouji stuff?
Had two parcels shipped via SAL.Parcel A: Shipped April 21st, presumed missing.. supposedly in NY customs as of July 6thParcel B: Shipped May 27th, just arrived today. Sometimes I don't understand how the international package system works. I don't even remember what I ordered. I hope nothing molded.

>>10447910I have these moon and stars lights in rainbow, and the lights stopped working on day two. Just a heads-up, I hope yours are fine though - it's super cute, perfect for the wall above my desk. I think I'll just hang another string of fairy lights around it.
Any USA anons have any EMS packages come in lately? Was it quick or did it take months? I'm about to pay for my package on 42agent right now... Do they even offer anything other than EMS?

Just wanted some new clothes.

Anyone have any recommendations on what to search for sailor collar cutsews/blouses or have any links to any listings? Preferably in stock, Thanks~
>>10448202They do offer DHL which goes about $10-$15 higher than EMS if your package is in the 3-4kg range. Not sure if they have a similar price cliff as tenso does where you absolutely have to keep it under 3.5kg or you're looking at a jump from $60 to $200.Regarding ship times, I have an EMS package from 42agent that has been stuck in Zhengzhou since 7/11 and an aliexpress one on US shores that hasn't moved since 7/6, so just don't rely on anything getting here by a specific date and it's not that big of a deal.
Do any of you have the link to Daydream shop on taobao?
>>10418523They're a lot mot intricate than brand I think, so you're still getting more for your money. Idk about the quality tho.
>>10442753do you want to die? why are you wrapping your face in plastic? get some cotton ones.
>>10449423Be aware that Daydream is only a reseller of various other Taobao indie brands tho.https://shop140571158.taobao.com/
Looking to start getting into using a SS but the links in the OP that leads to the spreadsheet has dead sellers for the good ones. Is there another sheet I've missed or what SS do you all use?
any suggestions for stores that have idol costumes? Similar vibe to pic related

How heavy does my package need to be to qualify for like, cheap shippingI’ve never done it myself but I’ve seen that if it’s above x weight the shipping gets pretty cheap
Has anyone ever used UPS shipping for Spreenow? My stuff finally shipped out but the shipping numbers just say Shipment Ready for UPS. I have never seen this before. Know I am probably being impatient but I haven't really experienced this before
>>10451241Spreenow has been dodgy with shipping for a bit now imo
>>10451241>>10451286I had something shipped June 18th with Spreenow and tracking hasn't changed since being in Guangzhou June 20th. I've sent multiple messages asking what's up and I've been deflected each time with "oh, well, covid, you know"I want to make another order/order new stuff but not if it's going to take half a year to get to me, or else why did I pay extra for faster shipping?
>>10450802what exactly do you mean? this happens with certain packages when they are too big, they stop charging by weight. it's not cheap, it's just cheaper than it otherwise would be.

>>10451552ty for the dump anon!
Ok, really. Should I do a huge shopping haul and ship it all in one go or buy+ship things slowly over time separately? Which is more cost effective? Don't really care about time. West Europoor, Superbuy btw. Just noticed I have a lot of points/coupons there and I have a LOT of things I want to buy.>>10451545ok this is hilarious
>>10451579Shipping it all in one go is cheaper
>>10451579Reminder to consider taxes & customs in your calculation.
>>10451554I don't really know what to do other than wait lol too much time has passed for me to get a refund on anythingjust sucks because spreenow's been my taobao agent since taobaonow times but this is getting ridiculous
A basics haul that only started because of an artist putting up preorders for the little mochi plushes that i missed out on the first time.im wondering if i add anything more to it, maybe a cardigan since ive been so in love with them lately and would love one more~
>>10451834I feel you. I have a package with them in limbo at the moment as well which is what prompted me to switch. You're gonna have to wait it out unfortunately
I don't know if anybody remembers but I posted about heart heels on Taobao several threads ago. This was the only thing I was able to find, but hey, it's something! https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a1z0k.7386009.1997985097.d4918997.a87a52417iMa95&id=42821320846&_u=t2dmg8j26111

Tried signing up for an account on Spreenow and it said to wait for a confirmation email. Nothing ever came and when I tried to log in, the page just resets itself.

Desperately searching for these blouses. Can only find them on lolitacollective for $40 which seems like a lot for these. Taobao link would be superb
