Was the blouse always this bad or did you edit the pit stains worse this time? It looks grodier every time I have the misfortune of accidentally looking at it.
>>
I have never seen a fashion style where people wear/sell clothes that are as worn down, smelly and torn as I have in lolita. People don't wash their shit and wear it till there's literal yellow stains on it and then sell it. And the worst is, others actually fucking buy it. Why? I've never seen this in any other fashion style.
>>
>>10553371
New lolitas genuinely think you can't wash or dry clean burando
>>
>>10553371
>others actually fucking buy it
Yes, we get a good deal and remove the stains
>>
>>10553339
cursed
>>
>>10552771
>Huh what dress?
BABY’s Little Royal Icing. As you can see it’s quite pastel to begin with and now it’s even more washed out. I can tell because I removed the detachable bow before taking it in and now it doesn’t match, plus all the glitter washed out.
>>
>>10553371
Don’t know where you’ve been shopping, but the items I buy from poshmark/Depop have been way worse on average than anything from LM. And obviously vintage fashion people are used to buying and restoring totally torched clothes. Lolita fashion has been around for a long time, so at this point some of the clothes are getting worn out, but they’re definitely better than the average 15 year old garments in my experience.

“Bag cute cosplay”

God damnit it lol who let this person onto Lm

At least it doesn't say Angelic Pretty on it, but damn, that's one ugly replica.

It's Angelic Pretty cosplay
>>
Fucking lol
>>
>>10553465
I wanted one of these bags for so long and now I hate them because of all the replicas.

>>10553522
This was like the last color to sell out during the last SF release. I hope no one pays.
>>
>>10553386
Poshmark and depop are full of disgusting listings, and people price things so high despite all of the damage

Smelly "nwt" dress anon popping back in from the old thread to name and shame. It was idiotinkorean. So add that little tidbit of info onto the list of questionable things they've done.
>>
>>10553552
Oof, good to know. Was interested in buying Ghost Night Bride from them a couple weeks ago, but ended up deciding to look for a different colorway instead. Glad I did...
>>
>>10553552
They clearly have problems buying and selling dresses within a week, not surpirsed at all its a smelly poor hoarder. She needs to be banned
>>
Looks like Onegaishi Shop has closed their headhunting service and is sticking to sell plus size brand
>>
>>10553567
who??
>>
>>10553575
Sunkittystudios I think
>>
>>10553575
Secondhand lolita seller on Instagram.

>>10553567
I actually sent them a request a while back asking if they could help me find a specific JSK and I haven’t heard back since...guess I know why now.
>>
>>10553567
I requested an item through her service fully ready to get scalped and she claimed it was just impossible to find except maybe in China (it's been sold in western and Japanese markets before though and is a popular AP piece). I guess this service is only for easy to find shit she could mark up for the "work".
>>
>>10553581
Wasn't it a selling point that they could look in Chinese markets though? I could be wrong since the page is no longer up but I thought I remember reading about how they have staff who speak Chinese and Korean so they could check those markets which are less accessible to westerners
>>
>>10553586
Yeah that was part of her selling point. I don't feel like learning how to use xianyu so I was willing to pay a little extra and she was just kinda like "it just never shows up it is impossible".
>>
>>10553567
She says it's because her business insurance doesn't allow them to sell items that they don't already have in stock, but I'm pretty sure it's because they were either overwhelmed with requests and/or weren't making any money doing it.

>>10553586
Can confirm, the jsk she found for me shipped straight from South Korea. Still not sure how she's buying there, I've yet to find a single site or app with South Korean Lolita.
>>
If anyone suddenly wants a milky chan collection and has the cash for an insane bidding war, that one chick is selling off pieces again on LM

Tbh I think it is smart of her to do it this anniversary year in case AP suddenly decides on a rerelease.
>>
>>10553567
I DM'd her with some requests a few weeks ago and she told me straight up that she had over 600 active requests and would only reach out if she found the item, so I'm assuming that's probably the real reason why she closed it.

I wasn't expecting much anyway, it was more of a last ditch effort to try and find some stuff I've been looking for for years. Kinda sucks to get people's hopes up like that but oh well. I'll probably never find it anyways. ugh.
>>
>>10553604
hard agree. When I saw AP was opening up the re-release vault I immediatey sold my 2010 sweet. I'd pay $400 or so to keep them, but if it's worth $500+ I'd really rather put that money towards some other things in my life.
>>
>>10553604
>tfw no dress
I want to die. I just want a pink or white JSK in any cut. I literally have all the other accessories already and the dress escapes me. I have the bag, the muffler, the socks, all the jewelry. But no dress. I'm never going to own it.
>>
>>10553615
I’d literally kill for the bag lmao that’s the one piece of milky chan I want the most
>>
>>10553615
You could always just style some cute pink and white solids with milky chan accessories in the meantime. I think fun matching character accessories can really spice up a plain solid dress.
>>
>>10553633
I was blessed by CC one night a few years ago and got it. But the dress... I've probably tried at least 20 times and my SS has always been too slow. My only hope now is if AP rereleases it.

>>10553634
This is a good idea and I thought about doing that recently. I have a lot of pink AP solids and I could see a solid dress drawing more attention to the accessories. I just feel so empty abd lame for not owning the main piece.
>>
>>10553646
It'll be okay anon. You're not lame for not owning a print you like. You have so much other milky chan stuff to enjoy and appreciate; focus on loving and wearing those things rather than the stuff you don't have.
>>
>>10553567
It was a retard trap anyway. She is US based, you can do any searching she might do yourself.
>>
>>10553598
Probably her SK middleman buying from japan or china and shipping it to you.
>>
>>10553663
Thank you for being a nice person.
>>
>>10553668
Maybe, but there's actually a big Korean lolita community. Notice how lolita stuff is often tagged both "Japan" and "Korean" on sales sites. I'm not going to post my outlet on here because whenever that happens you gulls go and pick it dry but I've gotten some great deals out of South korea. The Euro or even dollar goes a LONG way there.
>>
>>10553668
>>10553686
Lolita is big enough in South Korea to support several local brands, so it makes sense that there'd be a secondhand market there.
>>
>>10553686
>I'm not going to post my outlet on here because whenever that happens you gulls go and pick it dry
I hate you but I also get you. This site has ruined so many secondhand options.
>>
>>10553552
I just looked at your feedback and ahhh I’m just curious, why did you pay so much for the set? It’s still in stock on AP usa
>>
>>10553699
ooof. Also, I feel inclined to say that I left idiot positive feedback and I think I've bought from her 4-5 times. The only issue I ever had was finding wear on the cuffs and collar of a "NWT" dress. The price was good so I wasn't too upset, but that's about it.
>>
>>10553703
oh and NTA
>>
>>10553703
>positive feedback
People need to stop being pussies and actually leave negative feedback when needed
>>
>>10553710
well I legit didn't think it merited negative feedback and the majority of my interactions with her were quite positive. sue me.
>>
>>10553710
Nayrt, she said she had a positive experience so she left positive feedback, what’s the problem with that?
>>
And hour ago when I checked lacemarket she had this as a bid and people were already bidding on it. How did she delete it and remake it? I thought you couldn’t edit a lifting after someone makes a bid.
>>
>>10553552
Interesting. I bought something from them and didn't have any problems with smell. It was perfectly sealed in plastic in NWT condition. I have other concerns about them though, like titling things with "URGENT!!!!!" to get a quick sale. They also took a month to ship something to me because they were exposed to covid, and despite testing negative over a week after exposure, they wanted to do a two week quarantine just to be safe and refused to ship out earlier than that.
>>
>>10553717
weirdly enough it's back up with a "dropped price"
>>
>>10553686
Damn I want to know so bad, but I can't blame you for not sharing.
>>
>>10553712
Gulls seem to forget that the rest of the internet isn't anon and we can't tear people a new one over petty small things.
>>
>>10553699
I didn't pay full price, I talked her down a bit via pm. And I think the Lovely Poodle on AP usa right now might be a restock or something because 2 1/2 weeks ago when I bought from her, I don't remember seeing it on there. I had to wait a bit for my smelly dress and I regret every second of it. Ah well.

I cleaned it already and it's no longer smelly. Once it's dry I can finally try it on
>>
>>10553717
Ah, this girl. She had an apron for sale a couple days ago that I was eyeing and she dropped the price for it like twice per day. Kinda odd, maybe she needs the money.
>>
>>10553717
she relists all of her items so often and is obviously unsure if she wants to actually sell anything of hers. i chalk it up to her having brain damage from not eating
>>
How the fuck is there a listing for Dreamy Baby Room at $650 at the moment, am I losing my mind?
>>
>>10553988
That same user has been trying to sell it at that price for a while now.
>>
>>10553988
There’s 4 of them on fril at the moment for ¥65,000 too.
>>
>>10554001
they lowered the price on fril actually lmao it used to be $700, they dropped to $600
>>
>>10554001
actually it's only 60kyen. what a steal
>>
When you get a pair of boots at goodwill for $2 and try to shill them on LM for $45. On sale from $100!! What a deal.
>>
>>10553384
Thanks for letting me know anon, I've been looking for that dress for awhile! I'll be more careful when I find it.
>>
>>10554098
I hate this trend of ebay labeled listings
>>
>>10554004
I can’t understand it, I thought this was an unpopular dress, at best average - I’d expect to see it like $200 max
>>
>>10554130
OTT sweet boom baby
>>
>>10554130
Thank all the new desperate sweet lolitas. It sold for a bit over $700 with the matching headbow last year on LM
>>
>>10554135
Seeing Dreamy Baby Room sell for more than iconic AP dream dresses like HL and CTP is so weird to me considering how hated it was by western comm on initial release..... maybe I’m losing touch
>>
>>10553988
>Dreamy Baby Room
the ultimate DDLG print
>>
>>10554156
both HL and CTP had MTOs/re-releases to lower their price, Dreamy Baby Room only had a rerelease for the yellow color, only in China, and China for some reason loves this print and drives up the price
>>
>>10553611
I signed up for it and they missed my rare-ish dream dress listing on Lacemarket so I don't think they would be too much help anyway
>>
>>10554170
Ntayrt but to be fair HL has been rereleased an infinite number of times and the price is still high, especially for the zipper JSK, so I think it will always be one of those eternally iconic prints - same with CTP. Dreamy Baby Room being this high is probably just a phase, driven by desperate pandemic lolitas and the rise of OTT sweet and probably also a hint of ddlg egirls as mentioned upthread
>>
Whyy are so many people raising the price at the beginning of auctions with a low start? It's stupid
>>
>>10554207
The zipper JSK hasn't been released as much as the other cuts so it's higher, the OPs used to go for 700+ but now stay at around retail. CTP cost more retail than other series so it's going to cost more secondhand. More of something usually lowers the secondhand price, see how SC prices tanked once the MTO was announced.
>>
>>10554214
I don't fucking know. Did some lolitas never use ebay?
>>
>>10553717

She literally bought it for 13000 yen and posed with it for a few pics before reselling for like 170 now on LM

https://item.fril.jp/7181c4d92cccac7b02cdfea422dfbde8
>>
>>10554217
Nvm i just saw she dropped the price to 155 now.
>>
>>10553813
Well I hope that’s the only issue you have! It always sucks to get an item in worse condition than you believed it to be when purchasing
>>
>>10553840
No she’s just crazy. She buys like 50 new things a month, takes two pictures for Instagram in the worst coords you’ve ever seen in your life, and then sells them but constantly re-lists and deletes and relists and deletes and drops prices and then put the prices back up. She has actual mental disorders though, I’m not just being a jerk by calling her crazy. She talks about it on TickTock and stuff. Anxiety, depression, and EDs.
>>
>>10553376
This 100%. If some dumbass can't figure out how to take care of their nice shit, I'll buy it for nothing and do it myself. I save money for more shopping and my wardrobe has basically exploded without doing more than knowing how to use a goddamn washing machine in some cases.
>>
>>10553840
I've never heard a newfag trying so hard to sound like an oldfag
>>
>>10554247
Yeah after I posted I found her FB through one of the sales groups. Hope she gets some help.

>>10554266
Been around since 2012 but go off I guess. In my experience the only people who make a fuss about new/ oldfags are newfags themselves or larpers.
>>
>>10554281
>only people who make a fuss about new/ oldfags are newfags themselves or larpers.
This
>>
>>10554217
This is what she does with almost everything she buys. She wears it once for pictures and then tries to flip it for a profit.
>>
>>10554216
Based on the number of comments I've seen on here confused about why they're instantly being outbid, I'd say no.
>>
>>10554292
I don't think most zoomers have ever used ebay
>>
>>10554217
t b h it's not that crazy of a flip? I can imagine 13000 + shopping service fees + shipping fees + border tax getting close to 150, so 170 is not that wild imo?
>>
>>10554215
>The zipper JSK hasn't been released as much
it's also because it's fatty friendly

>>10554247
yeah, honestly people are really extra on laying into her. She's clearly got a lot of troubles, what's the point of having a go at someone like that? I just don't get it.

>>10554261
I just bought a dress from 2011 that has clearly NEVER been washed. It's fucking disgusting. There's no real damage but it is just caked in dust and dirt. Wash your damn clothes senpai.

>>10554342
It's not a flip, she's in Europe isn't she? with the VAT she's actually losing money on most of the stuff she sells.
>>
>>10554437
>It's not a flip, she's in Europe isn't she? with the VAT she's actually losing money on most of the stuff she sells.

That also explains her desperate sales, she's clearly borrowing from Peter to pay Paul, and losing some dollars here and there to import fees. Eventually, she'll be below the bottom of the barrel.

I got this blouse in Lavender a couple of years back for like $40, but my biceps are too big to button up the sleeves. Temptation to sell rising, but also, I'm a slut for pom-pom trim.

i'm vaguely considering buying shit on jp market that i think people would scalp and selling it at a reasonable price.

They’ll just buy it from you and scalp it anyway

Why, wouldn’t you lose time and money? Unless you mean you want to buy and resell for purchase price + ss fees and shipping to someone who wants it. I’ve considered doing it before when I see an anon’s WTB on mercari for a reasonable price and think it will sell out before they see it, but I’m nervous they won’t want it or will think I’m trying to scam them
>>
>>10554661
>>10554669

The blouses AP releases now are all weirdly unproportional. The collars/sleeves just aren't right.
>>
>>10554661
This is why I stopped checking y!j as regularly as other sites
>>
>>10554710
I mean if you’re bored I guess. But coming from an occasional scalper, it’s enough work and annoyance that you’ll soon find its way more trouble than it’s worth. I only sell here and there when I find a milky planet or something these days because buyers have gotten so obnoxious and demanding. For the extra bucks it’s tolerable, but at cost? Hell no.
>>
>>10553371
literally this >>10553374

people come into the fashion thinking
>you have to dryclean everything
and they're all poor NEETs terrible with money so they would never pay for that. even then, 90% of lolita can be thrown in the washer and the things that say to dry clean, you can handwash. lolita is cheap fast fashion made out of regular cotton and polyester, you can wash it like anything else unless it's so cheap that the print will run
>hand washing is hard
these are people too lazy to do regular laundry in the first place

and the pit stains are like fattychans, californians and brazilians that do not live in a climate suitable for this shit

What's a good starting price for the Star Toy necklace? or is it better to set a BIN?
>>
>>10555023
there are listings for it that have been sitting at 65-70 for a while now.
>>
>>10555023
Star Toy necklaces aren't rare anymore, so I'd say $50-$60 starting bid. Maybe $100 BIN? Unless you have the Twinkle version (glittery yellow/lavender), which is new and a lot rarer
>>
>>10555041
>>10555047
Thanks! I think I'm gonna start it at $1 and hope people get carried away then
>>
>>10555010
Also, why does everyone say dry cleaning is so expensive? It’s not?!? My local place is $5-8 for basics and $15 for evening dresses (which I think Lolita qualifies as)

I once bought a BTSSB dress for close to nothing because the entire front side was completely stained with dust, nicotine, dirt and whatever else gets on your clothing when you hang them on the wall for years. The front and back where complete different colors and I was getting literal piss colored water while washing it. It took a while but it turned out perfectly fine and I wear it regularly now.

I'm leaving lolita soon so I'll just say it. Onegaishi is probably using Lakeland

>>10554546
Automatic bid extension is usually enabled by default on y!a listings unless the seller turns them off, which is rare, so I doubt it's the seller being shitty rather than y!a being itself.

>90% of lolita can be thrown in the washer
This. I used to religiously handwash my burando until one day my mom threw it into our machine. I almost had a panic attack but then it came out totally fine. Even my velveteen and red cotton prints were ok.

I live in Europe but I've got my heart set on a dress on LM with a seller that'll only ship within the US.
What are my options here? Do I need a shopping service or something like that? The dress itself is fairly cheap so I don't want to pay double because of SS fees, but it might be worth it?
>>
>>10556151
I just asked a similar question in the stupid questions thread. I think we might be talking about the same seller.(if it is, I already talked to hey about it) Where are you from? Maybe we could buy from them together with a proxy and save a bit on fees and awful US shipping
>>
>>10556151
Just message them, I had a dream dress in America that was us shipping only, but when I asked if she would be willing to ship to England she was fine. There are companies that will allow you to have a US address, like an American tenso, but I've never used one so i can't recommend anything
>>
>someone buys something of mine
>buyer sends a message after saying they need it by x date which is very, very soon
>say i'll do my best and try to ship ahead of my usual time
>package ends up arriving on time
>no feedback or anything to say thanks
>see them post about their purchase on IG

I know I wasn't obligated, but some feedback would have been nice
>>
>>10556269
You could message them and remind them to leave feedback. I don't think they'd think badly of that.
>>
>>10556151
Usually when people say no shipping outside of the US it’s because they get sick of dealing with people complaining or people asking about the high international shipping costs from America. If you send her a message saying you understand that shipping is going to be pretty expensive (around $50) There’s a good chance she may be willing to sell it to you. I know that’s why I put things as US only, especially for cheaper things because I get sick of people asking and checking the shipping price and then telling them and then them not buying it because shipping is more than the item, it’s just a lot of hassle when 99% of people won’t pay $40 shipping on a $30 item
>>
>>10556269
LM usually auto-sends a reminder email about feedback 2-3 weeks after the purchase. I know I'm bad about getting to doing feedback until a few weeks later.
>>
>>10556269
People that don't leave feedback in general just annoy me. It takes seconds to do. I'd message them
>>
>>10556303
Yeah but at the same time, the only reason I don't leave it is if I think the seller will retaliate if it's less than stellar.

As someone who ships abroad a lot, part of the problem is risk too. The rate of international packages being damaged or going missing is much higher so I dont send any of my high end stuff abroad
>>
I’m dealing with a super annoying local buyer, she keep messaging me every few hours if I don’t reply fast enough. I’m honestly considering deleting the listing because don’t want to do business with her
>>
>>10556321
Fair, I mean more when it's a smooth sale and people don't bother it's annoying.. Different when it's a negative experience
>>
>>10556325

>bought on mercari
>posts on fril
>someone buys on fril
>posts on LM for 180 USD

This exactly! When did this fashion suddenly get so many scalpers. They've always been around but it fees like it's gotten the worst over the last couple of years.
>>
>>10556339
do it, once she buys she'll probably be just as annoying.

>>10556361
I think it's demand going up, and there being fairly sizeable differences in what's trendy in Japan vs. here. Older prints on average go for MUCH less on fril and mercari than they do on LM, so of course, there are going to be people capitalizing on it.
>>
>>10556387
>Older prints on average go for MUCH less on fril and mercari than they do on LM
Yes, this exactly. 2010 sweet is generally spendy in both markets, but anything older is usually dirt cheap in Japan if you know where to look.
>>
>>10556635
Even then, milky planet typically goes for half what you’d pay on lm.
>>
>>10556653
I don't understand anyone buying on LM, the prices are just about insane unless you want a cheap fixer upper.
>>
happy garden jsk in lav is on fril! hope a gull gets it :^)
>>
>>10556323
Maybe it didn't fit?
>>
>>10556741
Even a chubby Japanese girl could easily fit an OP since they tend to have smaller shoulders and whatnot. And that wouldn't explain the price jump despite a lot of domestic shipping being cheap AF in Japan. They're just scalping.
>>
>>10556654
I think most people that buy on LM are newer or lazy.
>>
>>10556775
Eh there’s also the convenience. It takes me 3 minutes to find and buy something on lm. On fril or mercari it’s a whole process and the seller might ultimately decide not to sell to foreigners/SS. Occasionally LM also has items I can’t find elsewhere or items like shoes where international shipping is a real
Bitch.
>>
>>10556775
inclined to disagree, new/lazy is fb marketplace

the thing about lm is i actually have a chance at snagging something immediately. unlike jp secondhand because i don't live in japan, if i spot something at a weird hour it'll be gone by the time an ss gets to it
>>
>>10556794
FB marketplace?! Who the fuck sells there ?
>>
Not a Moitiefag but https://item.fril.jp/65214264b2c8d157cb7eb9202929a5ba
>>
>>10556800
Oof that thing is ugly. I’m sorry mana.
>>
>>10556654
Maybe if you're looking for hypebeast prints. There's plenty of nice stuff going for less than a hundred. And while you could technically find stuff cheaper on japanese secondhand sites, between ss fees and shipping you end up spending about the same amount anyways.
>>
>>10556654
Japanese lolitas are pretty terrible at listing their pieces accurately, I've used LM to figure out measurements on older pieces were the Lolibrary listings list vague measurements
>>
I could have sworn that WTB/trade only listings were banned on Lacemarket at some point, but I don't actually see it written anywhere on the site. Was I just imagining this?
>>
>>10556867
It’s also nice to buy at a market where generally speaking it’s ok to ask questions and message the buyer. Many Japanese sellers say straight up don’t bother me, and rarely post detailed photos of the items condition or features.
>>
>>10556991
Idk but I hate WTBs cause they'll just clog up the site.
>>
>>10557058
Yeah, just like how the BST thread is only really used for WTB's anymore.

I ask because there's been an influx of trade only/WTB listings that I noticed recently, especially ones that don't have obviously fake/placeholder prices, and there isn't a category for reporting those from what I saw. Then I started to wonder where I got the idea they were banned since I don't see it anywhere in the rules.

Remember when someone joked about making a hamplanet vanilla chan?

For the gulls who live in Japan and are females there's a Honey Cake Cafe listing:

Now that I think about it, are brolitas common in Japan? She won't sell to men outright so I'm wondering if Japanese comms are just all cisgender females.
>>
>>10557233
This would have been a decent alteration job if the skirt was gathered all the way around but instead it’s just been ungathered and left flat after the panel insertion
>>
>>10557294
>Now that I think about it, are brolitas common in Japan?
crossdressing in general is fairly common in japan. but they hate foreigners, so that's more likely why she won't sell to you lol
>>
>>10557294
I mean if you really want it just use a Japanese SS not a forwarding service.
>>
>>10557294
This girl is really well known, she won’t sell to men or shoppers accounts.
>>
>>10557294
I've came across a good amount of Japanese Brolitas looking around online desu
>>
>>10557410
There's quite a few you'll see roaming laforet on the weekends. It's more subtle since they tend t blend a lot more than western brolitas, but there's a decent amount it seems.
>>
>>10556797
I do, I prefer to sell within my country because that way shipping is less of a hassle. FB marketplace (within closed lolita groups obviously) allows me to do just that. Plus shit sells really fast, usually within hours.
>>
>>10557430
damn i wish it was that easy for me. My comm is full of lurker poorfags and if they're not that they're well established lolitas who are content with their wardrobes. My stuff sells instantly on LM but damn it'd be nice to not have to deal with the post office :,)
>>
>>10557372
I wish it was acceptable to do that in the west.
>>
>>10557294
This seller ai has deleted and relisted it a couple times since january, slowly lowering the price. So far Japonica and tenshi confirmed they can't buy from her. So it goes, eh
>>
>>10557616
I wonder if she'd sell to a foreigner who wasn't a shopper?
>>
>>10557623
I've bought from her before, but I don't id myself as a foreigner. I doubt she'd sell if she knew.
>>
Girly stickers was a short lived in Japan, I already see 10-15k yen listings for it regularly and it's not THAT old.

NWOT jewelry makes me suspicious. It’s even easier to lie about than NWOT dresses.
>>
>>10557651
idiotinkorean lies about NWT dresses all the time by wearing it and keeping the tags. Even easier to do with jewelry which comes with imperfections straight from AP often enough to dismiss light scuffs or damage.
>>
>>10557668
Wasn't that the same seller who refunded a bunch of people a few days ago because of an "emergency"?
>>
>>10557668
Wow I didn’t know that was a thing that they did. That’s pretty shitty :T

Nah that’s someone else. She actually came to complain in the feels thread about everyone being “crazy” and how awful the community was and quickly outed herself like a fuckin idiot.
>>
>>10557668
I think someone posted about this upthread or in the last one right? I think she made up for it but the dress was obviously worn and unwashed or something.
>>
>>10557700
I'm an APfag but this design isn't even particularly cute or unique, I don't get it.
>>
>>10557728
I still haven't gotten my refund from her too

Stupid questions thread is saging, so: why are there so many dirt cheap listings on xianyu? Surely no one is selling AP for $10?

Thanks for answering, I feel like an idiot now lol
>>
>>10557784
I found it, it's here >>10553533

real funny because it wasn't two days without communication - it was two weeks. and all the refunds failed last week, no one has gotten their money back because she spent it all.
>>
>>10557772
same. mine failed and I had to file a paypal dispute, which I had to manually contact paypal to do because you can't file a dispute once you've been "refunded".
>>
>>10557785
no problem, google translate can be really weird and vague sometimes.
>>
>>10557792
That sucks. I hope everyone gets their money back from that fucknugget. People were trying to defend her in BSOL saying “but maybe she had an emergency!!”. If you can’t take the time to refund everyone, then you can take two minutes to copy paste a message. And if you can’t and people call you out, don’t cry for sympathy or complain.
>>
>>10557809
honestly, she could have communicated at all. I don't believe for a minute that she had an emergency.
>>
>>10557233
I can't believe bidding is at $450 for this fucking mess. I'm so glad I finally found the pink JSK least year before the sweet boom.
>>
>>10557864
$400?!?!? I had to look it up to believe. What in the fuck is happening!!? Do you guys think it will go higher than $400? Maybe $500? $600?
>>
>>10557903
It has 6 days left and I feel like it'll probably go higher from someone panicking at the end.
>>
>>10557903
I would have thought since many of the fatties are cheapasses that it wouldn't go that high.
>>
>>10557824
ehhh idk I feel you wouldn't put yourself through this if you really didn't have a reason to.
Emergencys do happen, and, knock on wood, if lets say a family member died I dont think Id have the full presence of mind to handle everything properly. I have no idea what happened to her just saying.
>>
>>10557920
She said a family member was having a surgery sooner than planned or something I think
>>
>>10557921
Apparently their nephew was possibly having surgery sooner than expected and it was actually just a false alarm.
>>
>>10557920
Emergencies happen but that's no license to sherk your responsibilities. That person could've easily messaged everyone with a copy/paste message. Or even just updated their LM profile description.

(I wouldn't pay it, but I can see why someone why price it this way)

>>10557700
One sold for $341 recently, that’s why they think it’s worth $300

>>10558090
Can someone explain why anyone is willing to pay +100 for AP plastic junk? Who are these buyers?
>>
>>10558095
Nta but collectors and hoarders?
>>
>>10558095
I buy lots of AP jewelry and spend big bucks on it, but I've only spent over $250 on 3 necklaces, which were dream items.

The funny part about the Milky Dream Star one is that it's not even particularly rare. It's just cute. As everyone saw, as soon as >>10558090 the auction ending, about 5+ more listings for the same necklace popped up to entice the losing bidders.

In general I think the people spending money on AP jewelry are either clout chasers, or people who just really love it. For me, I just really love it. There's no other brand that really gets it right, in my opinion. Also my remaining wishlist dresses are basically impossible to find, so I like hunting for accessories.
>>
I bought +100 piece of jewlery around a week ago. Not sure how I feel about it honestly. It's really cute and rare piece (so far), I was really surprised to see it up in a wild. I like it, but I regret for spending that much.

I can deal with stains, but someone is bidding $850 for a Milky Planet with an actual gaping hole in the hem lace
>>
>>10559604
They probably didn't read the description

>>10559604
I'd fight for it if it wasn't damaged, but a hole in the lace is hard to ignore and only going to get worse

>>10559609
It's actually pretty easy to fix a hole in the lace

>>10559611
I don't know how, and if I'm paying that much for a dress I'm sure as hell not paying a seamstress on top of it.

Integrate newfag
>>
>>10559611
You can "mend" it but it won't really be fixed. There's no way to undo a hole in lace like that. Unlike being able to wash out a stain, rips/holes are permanent damage.
>>
>>10559621
maybe I’m in the minority but I’d rather deal with rips instead of stains or fading
>>
>>10559621
You can def fix it and pretty cheaply. I use substitute lace all the time. Takes about 30 minutes to remove the torn portion and sew in a new piece. You can tell if you're really up close of course, but from any reasonable distance it's completely unnoticeable. Still wouldn't drop $800 on it though.

Are you mental? That's going to look like shit.

this is true but it's also pretty small. i fixed some torn lace on a sugar pansy OP by redoing the pattern with matching thread.

This is pretty common for lace repairs dumbo

if you cared to actually make it look subtle and not rip out the brand lace there's actually a significantly easier and better looking technique done by historical lace makers that you can do with a needle and thread.

Yeah it's giving me the error anytime I send messages or comments, but it does go through.

I wish there was an easier way to check comments that doesn't involve checking each individual listing.

I'm having the same issues. LM also keeps randomly logging me out of my account which is especially annoying when I'm editing a listing and can't save it because I've been logged out again, surprise!

>>10560846
i honestly cannot blame depop chicks for finding LM when mods are too busy fucking off to delete this bs or even obvious print replica listings
>>
>>10560854
Okay real talk, I’ll see people post about buying lolita from depop but every fucking time I just search for AP, it’s all either DDLG stuff, musty ass stuff from good will, terrible replicas or $150 Bodyline dresses. How tf do these people find their shit???
>>

yeah seriously, what's with this bitch's listings? none of them are lolita. I'm almost annoyed enough to leave a comment about it if mods won't do anything

I came on here to post this girl lol. What gives people the courage to do stuff like this.

>>10560857
There's some good stuff, but you have to sift through a lot of garbage and it gets snatched up really quick. I've seen some less popular dresses go for around $100. Imo though it's not worth dealing with depop.

I don’t care about listing handmade jewelry and accessories. But at least make them cute? I don’t want jewelry that looks like it came from a 2007 Claire’s.

That's why I'm just not taking the bait for overpriced AP right now. Everyone dropped fat stacks on currently hyper popular prints are going to spontaneously combust when either AP rereleases them or pastel vomit falls back out of favor for whatever the next big trend is. Certain prints will always have A Price but they'll never to be able to resell a faded, stain trash bag for much of anything if everyone can just buy it brand new.
>>
>>10561465
Same honestly. I stopped buying AP jewelry for crazy prices because they're even releasing that now.

Yahoo JP auctions has this fishy listing on it for a dress which usually goes for $300 on the Japanese and English second hand market. Can any gulls tell if it's a replica? I don't have a knack for telling what fabrics are quality or what's actually a replica so I'm confused why this had a starting listing of $10.

https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/l655951050
>>
>>10561630
Oo jia did a replica of that cut and colourway, I don't know if any other replicas were done of it though. picrel is from oo jia's fb, the replica ruffles look off compared to the one in the listing and what's on lolibrary. The best way to tell though is if the auction pics had better lighting to see the fabric or pics of the tags.

In my opinion I'd say it's real, a 1k yen start is more trustworthy than 1yen start that most scam auctions do. And seeing how yahoo auctions has been recently, no doubt the seller set it low knowing people would bid like crazy. Hopefully someone who owns it can chime in in case I'm wrong.

Btw the seller does not want to deal with proxies/foreigners.
>>
>>10561630
Same lace, so I'm pretty sure it's legit. It's not that unusual with a low starting price
>>
>>10561684
The lace on the oo jia one is practically indistinguishable (can't tell it apart from the photos, but maybe irl) so I wouldn't go by the lace in this instance. It's not like highly customized ap lace thats easy to spot. I'm pretty sure I've seen the lace on the front panel on taobao a lot.
>>
>>10561688
Are you blind?
>>
>>10561688

Just an fyi that Oo Jia sometimes copied the lace when she did AP replicas, so you definitely don't want to go by "recognising" AP lace.

Even worse is I bought it to make matching accessories and the lace looked completely off from the original. It was supposed to be brown, but arrived a weird dark beige colour that didn't look close to AP brown, and then after a year it gained a greenish hue. You can definitely see why the quality of her work got replicalitas into the ita thread.

I hate this so much, you literally can't find any actual listings on ebay anymore because dropshipper bots completely shat up the results with their spam. Ebay never removes or punishes it either even though it's against their ToS to list things you don't own.

Damn she’s bold. Sis really wanting to sell this crappy alteration like it’s not terrible. Not her fault the bid got so high but that alteration looks so bad

>>10561858
I think she bought it to undo the alteration and just said fuck it. Sounds like the one whining wanted it but it’s too high for her to buy lmao
