Link to old thread: https://boards.4channel.org/cgl/thread/10491818#topDiscuss:>Shit you're tired of seeing in the 2nd marketplace
>>10498394two just like I copied to the reply here
>>10498672bruhprevious thread: >>10491818
>>10498672I'm tired of seeing overpriced old school stuff
I’m sick of seeing this bitch’s overpriced uRgEnT SaLeS!!!!!1111oneone
>>10499148I bought a dress from her and it STANK of BO but she left money in the pocket. Is she just shit at managing money? She shows dresses off on COF and calls them her child and then the next day sells them saying she needs the money
>>10499150how much money?
I hate the FB sales group. You're not special because it's your birthday. Go hunt for these dresses yourself. Stop posting giant wishlists.
>>10499150You should've sent the money back to her, its not yours and was probably left in there by accident.
>>10499150>she left money in the pocket. This is so fucking hilarious if it's true. Please tell us how much it was, anon!
>>10499169I'm going to make sure I buy Candy Fun Fair JSK in mint if I ever see it, even if it means I have to sell nudes to my friends that month so I don't stay in the hole monetarily. It's a dream dress of mine, been trying to get it for 4 years, and I will absolutely spend money I don't have so she doesn't get it before me.
Nothing makes me more suspicious of a seller than putting RARE in most of their listings.
>>10499177I have at least 5 of these dresses with the headbow + accessories and I would never sell them to someone who is so new to lolita that they have this big of a WTB.
>>10499151>>10499176It was $6 plus a receipt from target for an electric tea kettle. I figured the $6 was my discount for getting a dirty dress. Luckily it was poly so it was easy to wash at home
like three times in the past 2 months I have offered someone something posted as WTB and they buyer was like "no thanks".I offer current going rate. these bitches posting WTB expecting to get some amazing deal. so sick of it.
>>10499169I love seeing wishlists like this with dresses I have and knowing I’d never offer them to someone this pathetic.
>>10499218I always get the same satisfaction when I see a dress I own in several people's WTB. I guess it makes me feel more justified in investing the money into dresses if other people also want them.
>>10499215you should post in the BST thread here
>>10499232i mean I offer people the dresses they are asking for and then they don't want them.It's happened to me in the bst thread
Today must be desperate WTB day.>willing to pay up to $350I think my new pet peeve is people like this who don't even know the market value of the dresses they want to buy.
>>10499238When did Dream Doll become so expensive? I got it for like $80 back in ye olden times.
>>10499239I guess to be fair, the $800 offer for Dream Doll is good. But $350 for all the others is kinda laughable. All these solids are rare.
>>10499238Dream doll was sold just over $2000 on Xianyu recently, of course she would want to buy it for cheap and scale the hell out of it.
>>10499169Some of these aren’t even that difficult to find if you keep an eye out and check literally anywhere besides lace market
>>10499169>my mom is going to get me a dressI'd bet any money she'll take back that offer once she sees market rates for these dresses
>>10499169I can’t imagine being such a cunt that you think someone asking for help finding a dress they want for their birthday is abhorrent and wrong. You’re an embarrassment
>>10499179>>10499180She probably wants to spend no more than $80 - $100 on them, maaaybe $110 if they come with matching kc>>10499173lol
>>10499235i can't understand that because i will pay good money for anything on my wishlist. oh well
>>10499169This. I saw one just now where someone found one of the dresses and the op replied with 'thanks, I'll keep an eye on it :)' ????? is it your fucking dream dress or not???? Why post if you're not going to immediately snatch them?
>>10499325 i also saw that. sounds like what >>10499317 is saying. or she wants someone to give her a nice "birthday gift".
>>10499325This happened to me with some bitch on depop. They made an ISO, said they didn’t want to pay over X amount, I offer them said item at a little under X amount and then they’re like ‘oh I’m strapped for cash rn sorry’. After making me add a proof picture and all. Fucking cunt
>>10499303Sorry you got posted.
>>10499585I just came here to post this. I had a good laugh.
>>10499327Hi are you me? Same thing JUST happened to me after I made a listing for her and everything. It was $15 too. Like come the fuck on, man
>>10499238I'm getting real sick of these trend hoppers. They've obviously been into lolita for many years and they're only after these types of releases now that they're popular, and they're not even offering market price? Like hell I'll sell to you.
>>10499169FB sales groups are trash. It's nothing but supid WTBs
>>10499652I personally don’t mind if it’s one dress but posting a whole ass wishlist is retarded
>>10499652this. I hardly ever see actual dresses for sale on fb, either WTBs of ultra popular prints or lots of crappy blouses and socks
>>10499652Newbies are so retarded too. Asking for measurements in a WTB post because they think it’s for sale.
>>10499238I may or may not have sold the bunny chan pocket OP to her for $160 (-13 dollars if you count the laundry service). Did I get fucking scammed?
>>10499678when did you sell it?back in the day when i had that op it was a nightmare to sell nobody wanted it
>>10499691About a month ago. I bought it from a normie for about 90 euros last year but I didn't wear it much.
>>10499678Do you mean Nakayoshi Bunny? You got robbed like fuck if it was that dress.
>>10499700Nope, Bunny-chan Pocket! there's no way I'd sell Nakayoshi Bunny if I had it lol
People are buying and selling lolita for sport. I feel like a very small group are actually in the market for actual clothes to wear. This is ridiculous
>>10499678by like $150 yeah
>>10499700desu I sometimes think about listing mine for an insane price and seeing if it would sell
>>10499716Yeah, it’s definitely become more of a collectors hobby where people occasionally wear the pieces to show of their collection
>>10499673Yep, always “loliable” normie blouses
>>10499709Nah, that's reasonable for that dress.
>>10499179How does that make them suspicious lmao
>>10499303Exactly. They're just mad that people get gifted dresses.
>>10499148>>10499585>>10499614They are deleting and relisting the same three items over and over and can't even keep track of it. "free shipping!" is their latest sales pitch in addition to the aforementioned "urgent sale!!!" and "leaving lolita"
Not this shit again
>>10500220> $450What a cunt. Twice the size doesn't mean twice the price, Jesus fucking Christ.
>>10499653Tbh i dont think WTBs or wishlists are a problem. We literally do that all the time in the BST thread here... its just a fb version. Don't be mad at people posting the WTBs, get mad at them for ignoring the offers when they come up. I love throwing WTBs on the FB threads, sometimes a Xianyu SS will deep dive for me and find it in some cave on the app for a good price, and sometimes people who have items they were only thinking of selling see motivation to do so. The big issue is people expecting way less than market value after asking for them.
>>10499871I feel like 'rona played a part in that. ppl who kept their jobs and stopped going to cons or whatever now had extra income to buy dresses but never wear them anywhere so now its a crazy collector hobby. the market inflated hugely this year too bc of it.
>>10500223but muh sweet boom!!!!
>>10500223Just saw that, who tf pays that much for ruined brand? You wanna cut up your dreases, fine do so.But at least have the shame in pricing it reasonably
>>10500220To be fair, I’d pay in the neighborhood of $450 if it wasn’t modified and in flawless condition. Maybe even if it was modified in a way that didn’t look like total shite. LOVE that she doubles down on saying she has medical bills AND the age old “not responsible for lost packages” nonsense.
>>10500220why even bother leading with the stock photo? It looks nothing like it anymore.
>>10500220it is baffling the lengths people will go to rather than just putting down the hamburger.
>>10500220Wow I want to throw up all over this
>>10500220I feel like modifying brand doesn’t necessarily decrease the value, but it definitely doesn’t increase it ...
>>10500263>>10500254>>10500242>>10500223why are people complaining I though the market set the prices just dont buy it and it will go down right ?
>>10500271Because they have nothing better to do with their lives.
>>10500220>Extra fat! Extra fat! Buy it now! Now for the low price of 450 burger units! Buy it now! Limited time offer! Extra fat!
>>10500265>modifying brand doesn’t necessarily decrease the value But it does. Lacemarket’s damage list includes modifications.
>>10500287It also lists wrinkles though despite the fact they can be steamed or ironed out sooo...does being wrinkled decrease value too?
>>10500271I agree with this to be honest. Much as people hate it, there IS a market for plus-size AP, so I bet this sells for asking price. But yeah, if it doesn’t, she’ll presumably just reduce it. It’s that simple
>>10500296To half of lolitas increased size lowers the value, to half it makes it way more valuable because they get a bigger piece without the "guilt" of being the one who altered it themselves.
>>10498672I'm surprised no one talked about that one set of knockoff shyness bear ears someone was selling. The listing has been removed already.
>>10500287I actually think that's unfair anon. With a good seamster, it's definitely not something that should be in the same category as onions sauce stains and torn lace. This is a shit mod though
>>10500271Because this is CGL anon, and everyone complains about everything. But also, this girl kinda hits all the pain points: - ye olde medical bills excuse for price gouging- overpricing a generically sweet print that no one actually cares about that much (the mint JSK set unaltered is $100 cheaper on LM)- pretending like she's not responsible for lost packages- trying to guilt trip by mentioning being sickWhile usually a high-priced sweet item complaint would be met with "STFU poorfag" on CGL this rule does not apply to fatties who will always be subjected to additional abuse.
>>10499926nayrt but it just feels salesman-y, especially when the items aren't notably rare or sought after.>>10500265i think that depends on the nature and quality of the modification desu. i've definitely cringed seeing dresses that have been altered by someone who didn't know what they were doing. i do know i'm more likely to buy an unaltered dress than an altered one either way. the proof photos have to be excellent before i'd even consider it. >>10500287we can rest assured that it's listed under damages just to have a way to tag it lol. it's more about disclosures than suggesting it means it's inherently a damage.
>>10500370Would help if the photo didn't drop
>>10500300I don't understand the guilt complex. If I pay $300 for a dress and decide to light it on fire, that's my prerogative. I do understand the anxiety about fucking a dress up tho. I went to a local "seamstress" to repair the hem of one of my dresses after the stiches came out and she fucked it up so badly I wish I had just done it myself.
>>10500383The guilt is because of the "alteration shaming" that people tend to do if it is to change fit to accomodate a lower weight (people are fine with lengthening straps or taking things in but hate a dress made to fit significantly larger even if it looks fine on the person's body if the alteration doesn't seem pretty on the hanger)Most lolitas are otherwise normies and subject to peer pressure and self esteem issues despite the "we don't care what people think" rebellious origin of the fashion. They probably feel afraid of being shit talked for altering though I'm sure most normal people don't care and would rather fatties have a dress that fits well than squishing into something that doesn't.
>>10500265I think it depends how you market it and if the alteration was done professionally. What I mean to say is, if I wanted a dress just a bit bigger in the bust, an alteration buy a reputable professional (letting out) even just a little, will still cost about 150USD and up (If a tailor at an actual tailors does it). So if marketed to someone who needs that size, I might argue it's worth the price.However, I prefer to bring things to my tailor rather than trust the franken-dresses we see on Lacemarket.
>>10500372That is super cute! I'd hella wear that
>>10500416$150 anon ?!? I am not charging enough lol. I recut an entire bodice to fit a 118 cm bust on SC for $120 rip
>>10500418Ita trash, that's some milanoo shit.
>>10500394But to your point, yeah no real professional would ever in a million years put their name on the modifications I’ve see on Lm, including this one. To be fair, there’s a lot of “seamstresses” out there that have no business advertising their services as professional.In this case, making the bodice bulkier with straight lines like that makes it seem unnatural and actually draws attention to the larger stature. “Professionals” that do this style of modification are lazy imo and taking advantage of people who don’t know any better. Just cause you can see doesn’t make you qualified to make this kind of structural change to a garment.
>>10500425At least!I needed to let out two dresses at the bust just a bit. Waist was fine. To source fabric and add two gussets (with lining) and let it out at the bust cost 175$ USD both times.I take my Lolita dresses to a well known bespoke tailor in my area, and so I know I'm paying a bit extra for his time, but I'd rather know it's going to be done well than end up with the Lolita equivalent of Frankenstein's monster.
Is this the week to show off your shitty brand hack jobs? Wtf is going on?
>>10500864“Maybe the only Horror Candy Shop skirt ever.” Yeah because you butchered a perfectly good jsk. Semi-professional my ass. That’s amateur work at best.
>>10500864I don't even like this print but this physically pains me.
>>10500864But.. why? The jsk is generous and you can just wear a cardigan on top???
>>10500872Right? Like it's already plus size friendly, what kind of person has a bust greater than 112cm, but a waist smaller than 100cm? The math dont add up
>>10500872Probably too fat to fit it
>>10500875Actually a lot of people. This also varies drastically on where you wear the dress. Fatties often wear skirts quite high so their fat rolls act like a petti and are hidden by the shape, and because their waist under the boobs is much smaller than their actual waist line.Weirdly enough tho, I don't hate this. She didn't overprice it, they did re-releases across all AP platforms so it's not super rare, and the modification isn't top tier, but it's not been destroyed. what's there to get so pissy about? Fat people existing in Lolita? If she'd worn the JSK in an unflattering size she would have been posted to the ita thread.
>>10500884Are you blind? The modification is a sloppy unfinished mess. The fact that he claims that it's " semi-proffessional" is an outright lie
>>10500884You’re either stupid, a troll, or both.
Does anyone else hate it when sellers do this? Like, just make two listings cunt
>>10500888They obviously do it to force someone to buy the less desirable piece, or to not have to put in work selling and shipping two items separately. Basically the same reason people sell lots.
>>10500887None of the above. Just genuinely don't understand what all the fuss is about. Toy Parade fatty-chan not only made a frankendress but also started the bid at $450, at least this girl took 50% off. You serge up the loose ends and go on your way.
>>10500888Yeah it's annoying but hey, Cotton Candy shop is hot rn, so there's no better time to shill your fugly dresses. I suspect she just wants to make a ton off CCS but wants it to seem more reasonable by throwing in another brand piece, cause it's not $600 for CCS, onw it's $300 a piece lmao
>>10500895The other dress isn't really ugly, just not a popular or trendy style.
does this seem completely unreasonable to anyone else
>>10501283Not seeing it chief
>>10501283here marks the start of the thread devolving into "I don't like this price so it's bullshit"
>>10501283DDC is older and not as easy to get (and was very popular for some time). I don’t know the retail prices for AP chokers, but if they‘re anything like necklaces, this is a normal price.
>>10500888The chinese started this trend and I hate to see coming over.
>>10501283It looks gross and I wouldn’t buy it but nah this price is fine.
>>10500892Stupid people don’t know they’re stupid so I guess it’s that one
>>10501294i wasn't trying to start shit lmao i'm not big on the choker market. i guess i get it for someone trying to complete their set. to me the necklaces make more sense mainly due being bigger and having more detail, this thing just looks so dinky and sad in comparison for fifty bucks.
>no star brooch>puckered bodice seams>description says no lacing ribbon included>$500Yeah, good luck with that.
>>10501330Why is this lol? In the US you can go to post offices at night when nobody is there and use their postal machines to mail stuff domestically. You have to go to the post office during business hours to ship something international. If she lives in an area with lots of new cases and/or an area full of antimask retards, I don't blame her one bit.
>>10501357Holy shit. How fat do you have to be in order to strain fabric that badly?
>>10501360I figured the lol was for "I bought this to twin with someone but we're no longer friends so I'm selling it", which is a funnily petty thing to mention in your listing.
>>10501330I think it might be because of the over sharing about an ex-friend which is not pertinent to a sale.
>>10501367>>10501369I mean, it kind amakes sense. So many people say "just tried on/never worn" or whatever shit and lie, so providing some context would actually make me trust their claim of never having worn it
>>10501364I wish lacemarket linked to facebook or instagram accounts so you could see, this is so ridiculous
>>10501379Literally almost everyone else on cgl prefers more privacy on LM last time linking accounts or providing more personal info was discussed because of their new verification rules; you're alone on wanting to creepily stalk sellers.
>>10501409she just wants to see the fatty stretching out the dress anon
>>10501411You can see that in the ita thread or literally any facebook group or midwestern comm photo tho
>>10501379Not all of us have FB/Instagram, anon. I just have a picture of me in a coordinate as my LM profile picture, so it's obvious to buyers that I'm not fat.
>>10501414I don't think buyers care if you're fat as long as you didn't damage the dress by wearing it like in the DBR listing above.
>>10501411Considering I’ve been hunted down on Instagram even though I don’t use the same email or username as Lacemarket, if you really wanted to you could find her.
>>10501431Meant to reply to >>10501379
>>10501364If this dress was really strained by their fatness, they should just invest in Meta. I hope the person treats their Milky Bear nicer than their clothes.
Wow for only a little over $200 with shipping, this dress could be mine!
Bless the poor soul of the LM user who got tricked by those shitty BTSSB replica kumya bags they're now reselling.They said they thought they were real but that just makes me think they're an idiot.
would you mention it in feedback if a buyer is just generally annoying? like stupid questions and constant unnecessary messages and handholding.I know it will just make me look like a cunt, but Its something I would want to know before selling to someone
>>10502930are replicas that include the brand logo allowed on lm?
>>10502935kek no mate its kinda petty
>>10502935I wouldn't, you might be opening yourself up to retaliatory negative feedback even if you haven't done anything wrong and I hear LM mods are garbage at dealing with issues like that.
>>10502935i think i know who you’re talking about anon, lol
>>10501553She does have fairly bountiful boobies. I'm jealous
>>10502987You must not be a lolita
>>10502930Which seller anon? There have been a lot of suspicious listings lately but mostly for cream cookie collection dresses. Can you give the abbreviated name please?
>>10502935If they're asking about the listing, it's not that annoying. If you have to walk them through how to make a purchase, use PayPal, etc then I'd mention it in the feedback.
>>10501330Waist stretch up to 100cm/39in? Jesus Christ that's morbidly obese. For health reasons the money spent on lolita should be reduced toward a nutritionist or anything else that would help you stay alive. Priorities!
>>10504091Redirected* sorry autocorrect
>>10504091And your money should be redirected into coping
>>10502935It's Christmas shopping time, it might be a family member using their account
>>10504125How is pointing out a health issue coping? Put the burger down buddy.
>>10504091she's selling it and stating the max dimensions, she doesn't necessarily have a 40in waist
>>10504566What does a ~40 inch waist lolita even look like? Haven't seen many.
>>10504571More likely it’s not a 40inch waist, it’s 40 inch hips that you have to get the skirt up over. Most of this are full shirring, which means no zipper.
Massive pit stained replica for $150
>>10504633The absolute state of AP sweet
>>10504633She reposted this listing again. Just keep reporting it
>>10504640Does she have a ban wish?
>>10499148so i bought this after talking her down, and it came in reeking of perfume and cooked food. mfw
>>10504657Eww gross. How much did you end up paying for it?
>>10504668Around 240. I sent them a pretty angry message and they’re saying they’d like to rectify the situation.They also admitted to putting the bag in a “vanilla scented trash bag” so I’m pissed. Gonna ask for a partial refund bc I have it airing out in my guest bedroom and I’m going to have to wash it/get it dry cleaned.
>>10504696vanilla scented trash bag? what the fuck? i'm so sorry for you anon, what a rip off
>>10504696Gross. You still over paid imo. She should give you a 50% refund
>>10504696Why did you pay 240 for an item that baby re-releases often for half the price? Just return it and get a full refund and buy yourself 2 straight from baby
>>10504737>>10504736>>10504731> You still over paid imo.> Why did you pay 240 for an item that baby re-releases often for half the price?Normie bf offered to buy my gift early and I'm still waiting on three packages from the Kumya Cosmetic release> She should give you a 50% refund> Just return it and get a full refund and buy yourself 2 straight from babyHonestly considering it. I'm kind of a pussy and don't want to outright ask for such a big partial refund. Do you think it would be fine to just ask for a 50%??
>>10504740Be like:>I'm completely unsatisfied with this transaction and I want a full refund. Easy-peasy
>>10504740Why did you order in three separate packages?
>>10504740>>10504742I went ahead and asked for a 40% refund and was just brutally honest that I'll escalate to Paypal/LM if necessary.>>10504743It was during the release, I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to get all the items I wanted. So multiple trips to the shopping cart. The third one was them getting back to me on a mail-order item
>>10504696yikes I paid half that for my secondhand usakumya rucksack from Japan at the beginning of this year (before shipping/fees). >>10504737iirc they haven't released rucksack size usakumya this year, just pochettes.
>>10499858IF ITS RED ILL FUCKING BUY IT OFF YOU NAME YOUR PRICE
A seller I purchased from decided to cc literally everyone else they sold to on an email offering a $3 discount to purchase from them again. Seriously? Like okay but don't share my personal info with randoms? Wtf.
>>10499858How much were you thinking? If you'd sell directly I can drop my email
>>10504815holly shit! That sounds desperate af. Also 3 dollars discount?? what is this??
>>10504815got the same e-mail, I didn't even notice and wouldn't have if they hadn't sent that second oneI had a good laugh at that 3$ discount most of all
why do people like shit they don't bid on ? I get a shit ton of likes and then like 2 bidders. can someone who does this explain?
>>10504858Waiting for a price drop, saving to bid at the last second for a deal, like the item but don't have money at the time, maybe plan to buy later.All of the reasons I can think of involve being money related really.
>>10504861I mostly sell AP tho so a search for the print name is prob better than liking some item when you will literally never look at in your like list anyways.anon do you ever actually ever look at your like list?
>>10504863Oh I look at my like list all the time. Literally multiple times a day. I like items before committing to buy them and let them sit to think about if I really want it or not, or waiting for price drops if it's a little steep, sometimes for expensive things that are reasonably or rightfully priced I'm just waiting until my next paycheck depending on how I'm doing financially (I'm a freelancer).Sometimes I use LM likes for fun and plan whole coords with items I wouldn't neccesarily buy even if I like them and then draw lolita characters wearing those coords. Sometimes I like cutsews and blouses for inspo for my handmade pieces too.I didn't realize no one uses their likes list considering it's the only "bookmark" function on LM. I use it more to save things for later rather than an ig like.
>>10504863I always look at my list. Like >>10504865 I use it as an ideas page as well as a list of things I'm actively wanting to keep an eye on.
>>10504858All of the above. It's a list of things I might consider buying if the price is right/if it's still around when I get paid next month. Also sometimes I like things I already have to see how much they sell for, or things that I think will be a bloodbath and want to watch.
I don't get it, if she's so "desperate for rent money" why won't she split the set? She'll be waiting forever for someone to buy all that crap at once for almost $400.
Is it normal to wait 2 weeks for someone to post a dress?
>>10504903Not under regular circumstances, but with covid restrictions in many countries it's somewhat excusable. They should definitely be keeping you updated, though.
>>10504881I saw that and said ‘none of this shit is worth $420 together’
>>10504912baby the blunt shines bright!
>>10504912Off topic, but does anyone have the source for that novala image?
>>10504657>>10504696Not to whiteknight, but is the smell of perfume and food really a reason for a partial refund? Just hand wash it, like you should do with second hand items anyway.
>>10504921Perfume maybe not since Japanese items I buy often have perfume or moth ball smells, but FOOD??? Is this person cooking and eating with their overpriced stuffed animal bag in the kitchen? It just seems kinda grody and has an impact on the quality, especially for a kumya which is more difficult to wash because of plastic and metal parts on the inside and outside.
>>10504921Seems like you're her desu, anyone would agree a lingering odor is damage the seller clearly didn't disclose. Lying about aspects of the item's condition that could have an impact on someone's purchasing decision which seems intentional considering how "desperate for rent money" she is should be grounds for a return or partial refund. You're basically tricking people into buying.

>>10504923>>10504925No, I'd totally get it if it was body odor or if it smelled like shit or if it was dirty, but perfume and cooking(?) smells seem like an overreaction to me. By that logic one couldn't even use detergent to clean stuff before shipping because buyers might react like OP. But if the seller was indeed aware, I get it too.Usakumyas survive a soft handwash btw, the iron parts don't immideately start to rust.
>>10504912I love you anon
>>10504935I should do that too, but part of the fun for me is checking and finding stuff I wasn't particularly searching for, but want.
>>10504912Baby the blunt shines bright
>>10504916I have no idea where its from , but also would love to know>>10504937I love you too!!
>>10504937>>10504993cna love bloom, on a battlefield?
>>10504998Yeah, I do. I believe at any time, any place, people can fall in love with each other.
>>10504657Samefag, she gave me most of my money back. Now I have a stinky usakumya for 80 bucks
>>10505013hey dont leave the name on
>>10505012I got a yellowed Usakumya for really cheap once and I soaked it in Oxiclean for a few hours and it did not damage it. Just thought that info might help you! Obviously they do not use the exact same materials for Usakumyas made years apart so be careful
>>10505013At least this one looks like they did a better job from the outside...still looks like beginner work from the inside
>>10505013>$145 for a bad hack jobWhat a joke
>>10505013She reduced the other one by $20 and its still not selling.Fatty-chans want ruined JSKs not skirts
>>10505024>Sewing by semi-proffessional. This means the outside looks very good, but the edges inside are visible.It wasn't done by a beginner, it was done by a "semi-proffessional" kek
>>10504912oh god we need more novala memes
I can't imagine how shameless itas can be. Like, I would be too ashamed to: A) let people know I bought a replica and B) try to sell said replica
>>10505122why does this dress look so frumpy and wrinkledeven the ribbon bow tie looks sad
>>10505021Usakumyas and most dresses are actually A LOT more durable than you might think as long as the print doesn’t bleed. I’ve removed bows and soaked them in a bleach and white vinegar solution with no problems.
>>10505122That is... Is that someone's interpretation of an MM dress?
>>10505126Seconding that bleach shouldn’t hurt Usakumya but you’ll want to be careful of the pink parts
>>10505127Yes, it is, in fact, that's 100% one of those Amazon or Cosplay website replicas that constantly sell Mary Magdalene designs.
>>1050503360$ USD at the most imo.
>>10504912im a stoner and have an usakumya with novala's signature, it really feels blessed.
I have a question since all of you are more well versed in LM and I think the dumb questions thread died out. But do people setup auto bids on something they're trying to win? Is that possible on LM??
>>10505166>>10505166Most auction sites use a max bid system and so does LM. If you max bid say $10 for a starting action of $5 then it'll place the first bid for $6. If no one else bids then you only pay $6. If someone else bids say $7, then the system automatically rebids for you to $8. It'll keep doing this until it reaches you max bid.
>>10505168Ok so I understand that, that's very helpful. My next question is does LM show what the highest bid is? Cause I bid on something twice right now with the impression that what was being shown was the highest bid already and there is no way that person is just sitting there upping the bid the second I do.
>>10505171The bid only gets raised if someone else bids on it.Say, if the starting bid is $1 and I put my highest bid at $100, if no one else bids, the bid will show as $2.If someone bids $10, then the price will raise to $11 as my highest bid is still higher than the competing bid. Someone would have to outbid my $100 before their bid shows up as the highest bid.
>>10505172Ohhhhhh ok! Thank you! So definitely go in with your highest bid at the beginning and then just debate with yourself afterwards if it's still not enough then huh? Lol I'm thinking it was like ebays system. I'm dumb af, thank you for helping a dumb bitch out!
>>10505173You can rebid again if you end up outbid from your max as well.
>>10505159Off topic but do you have a pic of it? Best usakumya
>>10505126Even so not telling a buyer their item is covered in a nasty smell is shitty and shady. Like many clothes are technically easy to wash, but that doesn't mean you want to buy them dirty.
>>10505128I threw my white usakumya with pink bows in the wash with a splash of bleach and it didn’t ruin or fade the bows at all. But for smell, white vinegar or just a simple oxyclean soak should suffice for anon’s usa.
>>10505173I usually throw a low bid in the beginning and then throw my max bid within the last hour. Otherwise you’re letting it get unnecessarily high early on and you end up spending more at the end of the auction.
>>10505282Why use chlorine bleach and risk it when you can use oxyclean or something color safe?
Who the fuck is stupid enough to buy this? VERY rare super adorable pastel baby bubblegum mini dress !!!1!1!!1!
>>10505429$135 for Bodyline MY SIDES
>>10505429>pastel baby bubblegum pink kawaii fairy kei lolita bbgirl mini JSK dress
>>10504916I think it is from an interview in the early glbs
>>10505429Way to [not] censor the name, anon.
>>10505429Classic depopYou can barely even see the damn dress the background is so fucking bright
>>10505282That’s fucking stupid but also I was more talking about the pink feet.
>>10505288>>10505547You don’t use straight bleach. Just a splash in several gallons of water. I did oxyclean first but the stain I had still has a slight mark left behind, and the heavily diluted bleach water was enough to lift the remaining stain without discoloring anything else. My cleaning routine usually starts with white vinegar and baking soda, if that doesn’t work, oxyclean, and the last resort is diluted bleach water.
>>10505586are you stupid? you don't use straight bleach in general for anything.
Just when i thought Lolita on eBay couldn’t get any worse>$20 for a piece of “burando” ribbon
>>10505591As in...just the generic corset ribbon? I can’t be reading this right.
>>10505594>>10505591if this sells i'm about to unlace a jsk just to measure that bitch and buy cheap satin ribbon to sell.
>>10505588You can definitely use it for spot cleaning a white area.
>>10505594......why the fuck?
How do you feel about seller charges PayPal fee on top of listing price when their TOS says all prices include pp fee?
>>10505895If this is on lace market, then fuck them, listings are supposed to have all fees included in it. If it's on Facebook or elsewhere, I'd say it's not worth the hassle.
>>10505895>>10505898Its against paypal TOS for seller to charge fees. If they do so, tell them that and report them if they refuse to sell
>>10505903>report them if they refuse to sellThis is such an annoying move. They‘ll just raise their prices instead, probably way more than the pp fee is. Just avoid them. They’re not entitled to sell to you and it doesn’t warrant more than a slap on the hands anyway.
>>10505914>*they‘re not forced to sell to youcorrection
>>10505895This is against PayPal's terms of service. For me it depends on how much I want the item. If it's a dream dress I'd buy it and drop them a line after wards. If they were being a real bitch about it, I'd report to both LM and PP out of spite. sorry not sorry.
>>10505895why can't they just add the fees to the cost of the dress without saying so? people never learn.
I'm surprised it's taken me this long to see somebody just straight up selling the waist ties for a dress. Same seller also has a listing for a fabric scrap that came attached with an AP dress for 300 yen.
>>10505895Annoying, like they think they're pulling a fast one by dropping it on me after the fact, but it's never high enough to raise a stink about in my case
>>10505914Most times they tell you after you bought the listing on LM. I always tell them it's against LM and PayPal terms and they back right off. I'm guessing they try it on newbies all the time to get away with it.
>>10506023What drives me bananas is when people sell dresses without the waist ties "because I can't find them" and when they eventually do, they don't contact the person they sold the dress to to offer them. I'd at least pay shipping for any missing waist ties... but I've seen some people doing this and wanted to message them "have you offered these to the person you sold the dress to a few months ago?"
>>10506236Not being able to find the waist ties is so confusing me. Like, are they not storing all of their lolita items in the same place? I just don't understand how somebody can "misplace" things like waist ties or detachable pieces like bows or neck ties.
>>10505895Isn't this only like $5-$10 dollars most of the time?
>>10506309I have some blouses that came without the detachable sleeves and I wonder the same thing
>>10506309I lowkey agree and I take all the waist ties off my dresses bc I find them annoying to wear. I keep them all together in the same box . How is that difficult?
>>10506225Undisclosed costs and fees are just scammy.
>>10506309I usually take out the ribbon of the back lacing, because I think it’s unnecessary and comes undone quickly. Honestly, at some point I had to add a tag to the bundle so I would remember which ribbon belongs to which dress. Once I panicked, because the ribbon of an AP dress was so cheap, I absolutely thought it must’ve belonged to a Bodyline dress, but it ended up being the right one.But waist ties? How easy is that. If I don’t use them I just store them on the same hanger (you can just use the buttonhole and pull the hook through it).
>>10506023Do you not remember the girl who was trying to sell a single waist tie on Lacemarket
>>10506309AyrtAgree. I know where all my waist ties are and If I were to sell a dress I would dig them up to make sure that they stayed with that dress.Low key someone didn't disclose all the missing pieces of a dream dress of mine. When I got it, it was missing all the ties and bows. I was so pissed. I messaged the seller who said she would look for them, but she ghosted me afterwards. It's okay now though, someone posted the same dress months later for a ludicrously low price, so I bought it just for the missing pieces.
>>10505914idc if they price it higher, just don't tell me i have to pay more than i agreed to after i already bought something and be up front about the price
>>10506309Moving houses will do it, especially if there's other people involved, so what can started out well-organised can end up with the box containing all the detachable bits being shoved somewhere in storage.Or it might not even be missing, you never know if something happened to the waist ties but not the dress, like a house fire, pest infestation, dog ate it, lost luggage, someone stole some stuff and accidentally ended up with waist ties, etc etc. Or the far more likely explanation that someone bought it secondhand and it just didn't come with any detachable bits. This >>10506236 and >>10506403 are just kinda assholey though. At least disclose the missing pieces are missing, and if seller does find the missing pieces it'd be nice to ask the buyers if they still want it. I think half the time they won't (if they already knew the waist ties were missing and were okay with that when they bought the dress it's likely they can't be bothered to pay shipping for the extras they didn't count on anyway), but it's still polite to ask anyway.
>>10506496>if they already knew the waist ties were missing and were okay with that when they bought the dress it's likely they can't be bothered to pay shipping for the extras they didn't count on anywayWhat? Do you even lolita ?Yes I would pay to ship that, even international.
What is it with some lolitas listing unpopular dresses, or even unpopular cuts/colors for market value or above? Even new with tags. Like, if anyone else wanted that mess they would've bought it by now. You should've wanted it bad enough to keep it because no one is paying face value for that except you. And it's almost always some form of gingham, AP solid, or stained.
>>10506515Do you know what market value is?
>>10506309There are some items that I own for 10+ years. Since then I have moved 4 times. I was in a long distance relationship for a long time, so I've basically lived out of suitcases for more than 2 years until we finally moved together. Things got lost or forgotten on the hotel floor, while moving or traveling, while I stayed at my parents parents or while I trusted my laundry to my mom or my bf. It were usually the small detachable things that went missing, like waist ties, brooches, pins. Though once I forgot an Excentrique jacket in a hotel room and I'm still sad about it today even though it happened like 5 years ago. I'm much more careful today, but it still happens from time to time that for example some brooch just falls off while walking around and I don't notice it until I get home again.
>>10506515Stay mad, poorfag.
>>10506501>half the time they won't>half, not allNot every dress that gets sold is somebody's dream print, sometimes it will just be a nameless, not-that-popular, nobody-cares nice solid dress that had waist ties and now it's just still a nice solid dress without waist ties, the new owner may or may not care about it. Not to mention, if it's missing some pieces in the first place, the most likely person to buy it is someone on a lower budget willing to settle on a lower price with an incomplete dress. In their eyes, the discount may no longer be "worth it" if they have to pay extra to ship the waist ties, especially if the dress isn't all that highly valued to begin with (either market value, or the buyer's own; the dress may have been bought because it was cheap and not because it was on the buyer's wishlist).Then, there's a couple of prints where the "waist tie" is just a long ribbon with nothing on it (AP's Melty Berry, at least one Moitie dress, probably others), so it may have already been replaced (if you don't like taobao/eBay ribbons, just shell out for Shindo Inc ribbons, they're pretty close to brand quality). There's also gonna be at least a few who have already sold the dress to someone else, so of course they have no use for waist ties of a dress they no longer own. Heck, if the sale was years ago the buyer may have even sold the dress on, too.Disregarding the ones that, I guess, don't like waist ties (? I mean, if so many get lost/misplaced then I guess there's some girls who don't like them?) -- there's enough reasons why some buyers won't bother paying extra to ship random missing waist ties.
>>10506625You're making up excuses not to ask though. I need them for any dress to fit. I've even bought a dress without the back lacing and was grateful the seller was able to find it and get it back to me.
>>10506625desu I wouldn't do it for basic corset lacing but I would definitely pay extra shipping for something big like waist ties or non-generic detachable bows
>>10506661gull, I already called them asshole in >>10506496. I still think it's assholey not to ask the buyer first. What more do you want.
>>10506664stop defending yourself it's embarrassing.
>>10506664That sounded more in reference to non-disclosure. The fashion is partially collector's hobby for a large enough portion of people that I don't think many would pass on getting the missing pieces back unless it was something like bodyline.
someone really bid $300 on a single used pair of socks, AP fags stay APfagginghttps://egl.circlly.com/auctions/angelic-pretty-little-witch-otk-socks-in-pink-new
>>10506753The irony is the seller is getting rid of them because they said they are large or have large legs, and the same person selling their 120cm bust altered JSK cause they supposedly needed cash urgently for medical bills bid $300 on socks that a fellow large person already told them didn't fit...I don't understand people who buy things knowing they won't fit. It's not like you can alter socks.
>>10506759someone in my old comm would cut socks to use as armwarmers since her legs are too big.
>>10506753I can only imagine that they settled for a sale privately and then someone bid in the meantime and they agreed to „just bid a ridiculous amount and we‘ll settle for what we agreed on“?
>>10506775This.I hate that people keep doing this and the next person who sells will see these artificially inflated listings. People who make deals in private messages and throw an active auction need to be banned.And before someone attacks me - I actually dislike Little Witch. I just think this kind of behavior is stupid.
>>10506775>>10506782If someone has already bid on an auction, isn't it against the rules to sell privately? If you just wanted a sale and not an auction, than you should have listed a BIN. The (legitimate) winner of the auction should get the item listed.
>>10506782>>10506788It’s absolutely stupid on behalf of the seller, because they could get more than what they agreed on, but it happens.I‘ve also had people try to make deal while an auction (with no bids) was going, but once I had a bid I just told them to join the auction now.
>>10500875Not anon but to be fair, I do. Granted its borderline bc of wg but my measurements are B: 120cm, W: 95cm.In the past (like 2016) its been 110cm, 88cm.I'm not particularly busty. Just tallish (5'8) and kinda broad? Def chubby but I carry most of my weight in my lower stomach, hips, and thighs
>>10506688Two posts were referenced, and the other didn't even mention non-disclosure.Seriously, it's just a list of other people's reasons, it's not even my attitude on waist ties. I just don't know why you need to project your own thinking onto every lolita out there and insist that every lolita out there must think waist ties are super uberly important.
>>10507032Because so many are collectors who wear the fashion? I'm not "projecting my thinking". Why do people catalog their wardrobe, keep track of pricing, and follow the market for specific dresses? I just thinking your largely underestimating how many would.
>>10507239lmao do you have the numbers to back up your claims that I underestimated?
I bought something on lacemarket 9 days ago. Didn't get invoiced by the seller after 2 days and sent a message asking to be. My message hasn't even been read and it's 6 days later. I haven't paid or anything. Should I contact the mods about it?
>>10507239>Because so many are collectors who wear the fashion?citation needed because social media tells me otherwise, unless you consider dressing up 1-2 a month max. wearing fashion kek
>>10506309Do you remember when CDs were a common thing and some people's CDs were always scratched up, broken, and scattered randomly around their house? Like you'd go into their room and they'd have a bunch of CDs face down on the filthy carpet? Rather than having a nice CD binder/book in their car they'd just have some handful of loose CDs and broken CD cases jammed somewhere?I think it's the same type of person that loses shit like waist ties and bows. People who are so messy and disorganized, and don't care about their belongings.
>>10505013I’d been looking for that special set for a little now and this listing hurt me
>>10507239>collectors>wear the fashionThose are kind of... opposed to each other. When you collect something (I collect plushes and figures.) you want to keep it in one piece, yes, but you also want to have it maintain optimal value. Why do you think people display figures in cabinets, even for smaller collections? Or why do you think people display plushes on shelves instead of plopping them on their beds to sleep with? It's to maintain that optimal condition and avoid damage.With clothes, even if you're very very careful, it's still possible to accrue stains over time. And the optimal state is NWT. So, yeah. If you're collecting you're going to wear clothes as little as possible, to avoid damage as much as possible. I wouldn't call that wearing the fashion. I'd call it "using your body as a display mannequin for a collection."
>>10507732I only post about 1-4 coords a month but I wear lolita almost every day. Not everyone cares about getting attention online.
>>10507737It hurts me that someone actually bought it too
>>10505127It's meant to be Whyteleafe.
>>10504571A heffalump and woozel?
>>10507687I had some trouble with emails from Lacemarket (I noticed a buyer bought something after 3 days!) so your seller might have the same problems. If you want, you can try to find them on ig and contact them there. maybe the username is the same.
>>10508159Don’t do that, it’s creepy
>>10508159I think the best way to handle it is to use the e-mail that you use for the invoice to message them.
>>10508161>>10508169I thought she already did that! the problem is that usually you receive an email when somebody buy something from you on lacemarket. if the seller doesn’t see/open/reply to that email, how are you going to contact them?
>>10508227>usually you receive an emailThat sadly not always the case.
Who else is waiting to see how much the Honey Cake OTKs end up selling for?
>>10508352It's weird that idiotinkorean was the top bidder last I checked when that user is always reselling stuff for financial emergencies or whatever; you'd think someone struggling would be more responsible.I'm quite excited to see how much the socks go for. Weird that AP didn't rerelease them.
>>10508352Socks are interesting but I'm just wondering when this seller is going to just remove this memorial cake listing because of how filthy the headbow is. It's under $200 and seemingly no one wants that nasty shit.
>>10508352I'm amazed that people are bidding for that shitty beat up honey cake bag for 66 bucks. Someone just listed their brand new one for 100, I'd rather just pay a bit more to get one in better condition. The MTO and original are pretty much the same anyways.
>>10508361Same person is (or was) trying to sell DDC with cigarette burns.
>>10508352$111 for some socks, jfc
>>10508361That shit has head lice
There is a special place in hell for people who split sets.
>>10508414I'm laughing at this dumbassery. NWT - but no apron, cause you're keeping it? AND more than retail? Fuck outta here.
>>10508428On god same. Since wine OP didn’t even sell out on the US site in the bloodbath I hope no one buys it.
Just saw this on a listing for a JSKWhy are people like this
>>10508487Wha-like, what??Currently shipping is fucked up due to Corona and Christmas. What kind of question is that.
>>10508352Wasn't the set (OTKs and Yolk JSK) up for bidding for like $375? Why are they now split and the JSK $700ish?
>>10508548multiple people requested to buy just the socks, so they put them and the bag up in their own listings
Do you guys think people will sell more of the Melody Toys jewelry after the USA drop? I am in desperate need of the Bear Toy necklace and ring.
>>10508549It's so weird to me though, there were zero bids for days for the set? Why then list it for $700? (Also with stains, color bleeding, and missing waist ties lol.)
>>10508560it was a 14 day auction, people were probably waiting until there was less time to place bids. But enough people asked about individual pieces so they split the set and listed just the JSK and KC with a price they would be ok with letting it go for; even with all that damage I can imagine it'll still sell.
>>10508428That OP set is $360 if you buy it from AP directly newfag.
>>10508414I think it's fine if they're selling it below retail, which she is. I don’t know why people are so weirdly salty about this, it's not like the idiots who sell just one waist tie or the burando ribbon chick. >>10508428Are we looking at the same listing? It's $300 for the OP, that's $80 cheaper than AP USA.
>>10508414They wanted the apron but no one would split their set, so they bought an OP specifically to get it. Why are you salty about it? it's not like the wine OP with the apron isn't still in stock at AP JP/USA
>>10508567Probably will still sell. But older HC pieces still pop up frequently enough that a decent amount of people may end up not wanting to buy and waiting. The socks and non rereleased colorways and cuts are the rarest since everyone and their mom who doesn't hate poly got the MTO, but a harder to find cut may not be worth the price with stains that aren't guaranteed to come out. I do wonder why the seller didn't just list the JSK and KC as bidding. They'd probably have been able to get more than their BIN price with a bidding war. People competing for an item will likely bid far more than they'd ever pay for a BIN even if there's obvious damage because of the mental fuckery of auctions.
>>10508638And only $15 cheaper than AP Japan. Plus shipping from Singapore. I also think it's overpriced especially without the apron.
>>10508955The price on the site is before tax newfag.
>>10508845More than $700 for a stained HC JSK with red bleeding and missing waist ties? Come on anon, we both know she made out like a bandit at that price.The KC tho I agree with you. Probably could have gotten $300 for just that.
>>10509054What's your point? Tax isn't retail price.
>>10509537God you're stupid.
