Old thread >>10544547
>>10553339Was 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.
>>10553371New lolitas genuinely think you can't wash or dry clean burando
>>10553371>others actually fucking buy itYes, we get a good deal and remove the stains
>>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.
>>10553371Don’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”
>>10553465God damnit it lol who let this person onto Lm
>>10553465At least it doesn't say Angelic Pretty on it, but damn, that's one ugly replica.
>>10553468It's Angelic Pretty cosplay
>>10553465I wanted one of these bags for so long and now I hate them because of all the replicas.>>10553522This was like the last color to sell out during the last SF release. I hope no one pays.
>>10553386Poshmark and depop are full of disgusting listings, and people price things so high despite all of the damage
>>10553522they deleted it after people called them out in the comments for scalping lmao
>>10553522wtf it's reserved anyways?
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.
>>10553552Oof, 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...
>>10553552They 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
>>10553575Sunkittystudios I think
>>10553575Secondhand lolita seller on Instagram.>>10553567I 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.
>>10553567I 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".
>>10553581Wasn'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
>>10553586Yeah 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".
>>10553567She 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. >>10553586Can 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 LMTbh I think it is smart of her to do it this anniversary year in case AP suddenly decides on a rerelease.
>>10553567I 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.
>>10553604hard 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 dressI 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.
>>10553615I’d literally kill for the bag lmao that’s the one piece of milky chan I want the most
>>10553615You 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.
>>10553633I 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.>>10553634This 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.
>>10553646It'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.
>>10553567It was a retard trap anyway. She is US based, you can do any searching she might do yourself.
>>10553598Probably her SK middleman buying from japan or china and shipping it to you.
>>10553663Thank you for being a nice person.
>>10553668Maybe, 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>>10553686Lolita 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 dryI hate you but I also get you. This site has ruined so many secondhand options.
>>10553552I 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
>>10553699ooof. 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.
>>10553703oh and NTA
>>10553703>positive feedbackPeople need to stop being pussies and actually leave negative feedback when needed
>>10553710well I legit didn't think it merited negative feedback and the majority of my interactions with her were quite positive. sue me.
>>10553710Nayrt, 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.
>>10553552Interesting. 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.
>>10553717weirdly enough it's back up with a "dropped price"
>>10553686Damn I want to know so bad, but I can't blame you for not sharing.
>>10553712Gulls 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.
>>10553699I 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
>>10553717Ah, 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.
>>10553717she 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?
>>10553988That same user has been trying to sell it at that price for a while now.
>>10553988There’s 4 of them on fril at the moment for ¥65,000 too.
>>10554001they lowered the price on fril actually lmao it used to be $700, they dropped to $600
>>10554001actually 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.
>>10553384Thanks for letting me know anon, I've been looking for that dress for awhile! I'll be more careful when I find it.
>>10554098I hate this trend of ebay labeled listings
>>10554004I can’t understand it, I thought this was an unpopular dress, at best average - I’d expect to see it like $200 max
>>10554130OTT sweet boom baby
>>10554130Thank all the new desperate sweet lolitas. It sold for a bit over $700 with the matching headbow last year on LM
>>10554135Seeing 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 Roomthe ultimate DDLG print
>>10554156both 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
>>10553611I 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
>>10554170Ntayrt 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
>>10554207The 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.
>>10554214I don't fucking know. Did some lolitas never use ebay?
>>10553717She literally bought it for 13000 yen and posed with it for a few pics before reselling for like 170 now on LMhttps://item.fril.jp/7181c4d92cccac7b02cdfea422dfbde8
>>10554217Nvm i just saw she dropped the price to 155 now.
>>10553813Well 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
>>10553840No 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.
>>10553376This 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.
>>10553840I've never heard a newfag trying so hard to sound like an oldfag
>>10554247Yeah after I posted I found her FB through one of the sales groups. Hope she gets some help.>>10554266Been 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
>>10554217This is what she does with almost everything she buys. She wears it once for pictures and then tries to flip it for a profit.
>>10554216Based on the number of comments I've seen on here confused about why they're instantly being outbid, I'd say no.
>>10554292I don't think most zoomers have ever used ebay
>>10554217t 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 muchit's also because it's fatty friendly>>10554247yeah, 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. >>10554261I 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.>>10554342It'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 don't want to be in this fashion anymore.AP is going to need to re-release blouses now.
>>10554474Selling this blouse is the biggest regret of my life.
Mother of god
>>10554098Tyler should do a video about this retardation
>>10554536There was an anon who turned the lavender one into a bed skirt.
>>10554474I hate this seller. They always extend the bidding when it's down to the last 2 mins to go on until the price is super high.
Ugh Y!J is literally just hundreds of pages of closet child crap. It’s not like they have their own website or anything....
>>10554661So fucking annoying, especially since they list nearly everything under Angelic Pretty and clog up the whole section.
>>10554474I 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.
>>10554695Sell now while the sweet boom is here.
>>10554474To be completely fair, sometimes they still shoot with nice designs. Although I miss their older cutesy/circus themed blouses
i'm vaguely considering buying shit on jp market that i think people would scalp and selling it at a reasonable price.
>>10554710They’ll just buy it from you and scalp it anyway
>>10554710Why, 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>>10554669you guys know you can hide certain sellers right? I always hide closetchild and browse the rest on YA
>>10554705The blouses AP releases now are all weirdly unproportional. The collars/sleeves just aren't right.
>>10554661This is why I stopped checking y!j as regularly as other sites
>>10554710I 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.
>>10553371literally this >>10553374people come into the fashion thinking>you have to dryclean everythingand 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 hardthese are people too lazy to do regular laundry in the first placeand 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?
>>10555023there are listings for it that have been sitting at 65-70 for a while now.
>>10555023Star 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>>10555047Thanks! I think I'm gonna start it at $1 and hope people get carried away then
>>10555010Also, why does everyone say dry cleaning is so expensive? It’s not?!? My local place is $5-8 for basics and $15 for evening dresses (which I think Lolita qualifies as)
>>10555010>lolita is cheap fast fashion made out of regular cotton and polyester, you can wash it like anything else unless it's so cheap that the print will runThis is unequivocally untrue
>>10555023I'm surprised we still haven't gotten a DBR rerelease. I know Shanghai did but that was yellow only
>>10555080It was also only the op and salopette. I wonder if that means they’re planning an mto.
>>10553663Wholesome and I agree.
Will Honey Cake rise to 1000$?
>>10555443>no bidsProbably not
>>10555443Who knows? Depends on who wants it. People have been paying near that price for the more common MTO so??
>>10555483People bid for the MTO because they can fit in it. IMO, that's one of the reasons honeycomb is so popular.
>>10555510Edit because mobile auto correct: honey cake
>>10555443One sold for almost that much before the boom, so it's possible.
>>10553686I've gotten super into digging for lesser known secondhand resellers and I'm super interested but I also definitely can relate. I don't even share my secret places with friends.
>>10554437I 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.
>>10555557I'm leaving lolita soon so I'll just say it. Onegaishi is probably using Lakeland
>>10555612Spoonfeed me wise anon, what's Lakeland? An app, website? Google search brought up nothing for me.
>>10554546Automatic 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.
>>10555010>90% of lolita can be thrown in the washerThis. 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. tl;dr Wash your damn clothes.
Don't smoke crack and list your legwear on LM kiddos.
>>10555732If that's not enough for you, I'm not going to tank the hopes and dreams of the other anons in the thread to spoon feed you.
>>10555732I can't find anything either. I even paired it with keywords like "sell," "angelic pretty," and "fashion"/"lolita."I might be stupid, but it's also possible that the anon is baiting and just wants us to go on a wild witch hunt.
>>10555744Please do not spoonfeed these newfags with sauce, you already dropped the name.
>>10555747Oops meant for >>10555741
>>10555748Poor Milky Swain
>>10555732Kek it’s totally a ruse anon-chan.
>>10555744Nope you is stupid anon. I'll give you a hint. If you can't use google translate, you'll never find it.
>>10555755Newfag spotted.>>10555761You'd need more than google translate. Even if they find it, they won't be able to buy anything.
>>10555761>>10555763Yeah I was guessing searching in English is probably a lost cause.
>>10555766I found this: cafe.naver.com/lakeland Looks like a Korean forum that also works as a selling platform, but it looks like a bit of a pain in the ass to join unless you actually speak korean
>>10555774Jokes on you, they're invite only
>>10555777I don’t really care, I just wanted to sate my curiosity and hopefully other anons as well
>>10555777Damn bruh y’all ok? It’s just clothes.
>>10555774This is why we can't have nice things. This board omplains about prices and availability, then posts sources like these knowing full well that scalpers stalk these threads.
>>10555774Thanks anon. You're the real MVP.
To the Princess Sucre request from dd thread, it does indeed pop on sale.
>>10556050That was me! I saw this one, but there's no proof pictures, and my SS would want a deposit before asking for them...I don't want to put down a deposit that big with no proof of anything, lmao. Dresses seem to come out of the woodwork at the same time though, so I hope it'll keep popping up
>>10555774>speak koreanI might be a bit rusty but finally it paid off to learn korean instad of japanese
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?
>>10556151I 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
>>10556151Just 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 IGI know I wasn't obligated, but some feedback would have been nice
>>10556269You could message them and remind them to leave feedback. I don't think they'd think badly of that.
>>10556151Usually 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
>>10556269LM 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.
>>10556269People that don't leave feedback in general just annoy me. It takes seconds to do. I'd message them
>>10556303Yeah 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.
Doing shit like this isn't very cute. They bought it on mercari and immediately posted it on Fril when they got it, it was just a few days.
>>10556323>4k yenWhy even bother
>>10556324right?>>10556323>bought on mercari>posts on fril>someone buys on fril>posts on LM for 180 USD
>>10556282As 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
>>10556321Fair, 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 USDThis 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.
>>10556339do it, once she buys she'll probably be just as annoying.>>10556361I 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 LMYes, 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.
>>10556635Even then, milky planet typically goes for half what you’d pay on lm.
>>10556653I 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 :^)
>>10556323Maybe it didn't fit?
>>10556741Even 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.
>>10556654I think most people that buy on LM are newer or lazy.
>>10556775Eh 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 realBitch.
>>10556775inclined to disagree, new/lazy is fb marketplacethe 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
>>10556794FB marketplace?! Who the fuck sells there ?
Not a Moitiefag but https://item.fril.jp/65214264b2c8d157cb7eb9202929a5ba
>>10556800Oof that thing is ugly. I’m sorry mana.
>>10556654Maybe 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.
>>10556654Japanese 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?
>>10556867It’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.
>>10556991Idk but I hate WTBs cause they'll just clog up the site.
>>10557058Yeah, 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:https://www.fromjapan.co.jp/en/special/order/confirm/https%3A%2F%2Fitem.fril.jp%2Fae7588f8163ff8ec83834dc20aefeb93/19_1/lgk-rakm_searchNow 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.
>>10557233This 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
>>10557294I mean if you really want it just use a Japanese SS not a forwarding service.
>>10557294This girl is really well known, she won’t sell to men or shoppers accounts.
>>10557294I've came across a good amount of Japanese Brolitas looking around online desu
>>10557410There'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.
>>10556797I 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.
>>10557430damn 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 :,)
>>10557372I wish it was acceptable to do that in the west.
>>10557294This 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
>>10557616I wonder if she'd sell to a foreigner who wasn't a shopper?
>>10557623I'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.
>>10557651idiotinkorean 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.
>>10557668Wasn't that the same seller who refunded a bunch of people a few days ago because of an "emergency"?
>>10557668Wow I didn’t know that was a thing that they did. That’s pretty shitty :T
>>10557669that was actually someone else
Maybe I’m just a retard but is any plastic jewelry worth $300??
>>10557700APfags seem to think so.
>>10557669Nah 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.
>>10557668I 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.
>>10557700I'm an APfag but this design isn't even particularly cute or unique, I don't get it.
>>10557728I 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?
>>10557728which feels thread was that anon?
>>10557783Secoding - I rarely frequent feels these days because of broth, but I'm curious now.
>>10557781Thanks for answering, I feel like an idiot now lol
>>10557784I found it, it's here >>10553533real 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.
>>10557772same. 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".
>>10557785no problem, google translate can be really weird and vague sometimes.
>>10557792That 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.
>>10557809honestly, she could have communicated at all. I don't believe for a minute that she had an emergency.
>>10557233I 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?
>>10557903It has 6 days left and I feel like it'll probably go higher from someone panicking at the end.
>>10557903I would have thought since many of the fatties are cheapasses that it wouldn't go that high.
>>10557824ehhh 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.
>>10557920She said a family member was having a surgery sooner than planned or something I think
>>10557921Apparently their nephew was possibly having surgery sooner than expected and it was actually just a false alarm.
>>10557920Emergencies 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.
oh fuck cc bots
>>10556991The depop fags are invading
So is schk_ho on LM a scalper?
>>10557700Dream Sky got a cutsew special release recently, seller is probably hoping someone does think it's worth $300.(I wouldn't pay it, but I can see why someone why price it this way)
>>10557700One sold for $341 recently, that’s why they think it’s worth $300
>>10558090Can someone explain why anyone is willing to pay +100 for AP plastic junk? Who are these buyers?
>>10558095Nta but collectors and hoarders?
>>10558095I 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.
Saw this when browsing auctions, I'm no APfag but this is definitely a sugary carnival replica, right? It kinda looks off too
>>10558403Yeah anon that looks fucked up i would pass.I’m not a big ap fag but here is my ap tag for something released in 2018 in japan for your reference
>>10558403>anglicAnon, do you have eyes?
>>10558406Oh I'm not buying it, sucks for the people who already bid, especially with the SC MTO being a thing this year>>10558407Yeah I know otherwise I wouldn't have posted the tag, but I vaguely remember seeing weird ap/baby tag mishaps posted here in the past and some people already bid on it so I thought there was a *slight* possibility I could have been wrong.
>>10558416>seeing weird ap/baby tag mishapsOh I see. I've never seen a legitimate AP product with a misspelled tag, so I thought it was pretty obvious lol
>>10554214Because I have money and I want it. Die mad.
>>10558444Not mad, just confused
>>10558452i think someone is trolling multiple threads.
Getting real sick of seeing this shit
>>10558581yeah.. hence why i posted this yesterday>>10557971cc makes me so sad
>>10558581You can only get the unpopular and way overpriced stuff now which is fine if you want it, but forget getting the good stuff
>>10558056Water is wet anon
>>10558603https://youtu.be/ugyqOSUlR2AU sure about that nonny?
>>10558630Fire is burned anon
>>10555566Please drop your cleaning techniques. I had a blouse arrive today horribly stained all around the pits & collar from sweat....
>>10558660What colour is it?
>>10558042Is that why there's been so many lately? I noticed a lot of them are Chinese girls so I wasn't sure if it was a xianyu thing leaking over
>>10558757xianyu is slowly killing itself due to issues so that's a possibilitie too
>>10559577I like the recent listing names>HOLY SHIT CHOKER!>head eating headbow
>>10559577Dying. These are cute though, wish they were my size.
I can deal with stains, but someone is bidding $850 for a Milky Planet with an actual gaping hole in the hem lace
>>10559604They probably didn't read the description
>>10559604I'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
>>10559609It's actually pretty easy to fix a hole in the lace
>>10559611I 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.
>>10559612Then just let the people who do know how bid on it and go sit at the kiddie table and bitch somewhere else
>>10559611You 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.
>>10559621maybe I’m in the minority but I’d rather deal with rips instead of stains or fading
>>10559621You 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.
>>10559641>ripping out custom brand lace as.eans of fixingAre you mental? That's going to look like shit.
>>10559621this 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.wtf is this though? 12 of these, not a single actual listing
>>10559670Seriously, how did this get allowed
>>10559670I thought you could only have like 5 offbrand listings?
>>10559644This is pretty common for lace repairs dumbo
>>10559689if 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.
I'm curious what would happen if someone actually bought the ebay listing
>>10559733This isn't a new thing. They'll just send it and pocket the extra. It's just trying to take advantage of foreign idiocy.
>>10559704That doesn’t really work with the cheap nylon netting variety though.
>>10559771>cheap nylon netting varietydid you mean to say tulle lace?
>>10559604They are going to regret when it gets re-released.
>>10559733eBay is always insanely marked up. I check it every now and then for dream dresses but it's always basic AP dresses going for $400
>>10559771tulle lace is the easiest to fix.
Have sellers alway been able to change the hours/days an auction can be up for bidding?>i should have won a dress at like 11am today but since i was the only one bidding it went up from 2 more hours, to 3, to 6, now its at 11 hours til auction is over.....wtf
Do people actually buy AP postcards for $20? I could imagine people paying that for a poster but you could buy a book with all the postcard art in it for that price
>>10559809Right? I can feel it in my bones.
>>10559983Right? Literally you can buy a bunch of Imai Kira art for way cheaper here (I think the postcards $3.50 a pop lol) http://www.akatako.net/catalog/japanese-artists/kira-imai
>>10559809I'll both laugh my ass off and cry tears of joy. It's the print that got me into this cursed fashion and I need it in more colors.
>>10560019I honestly think they will rerelease it.
>>10560019>reminded of people spending 2k on faded SC before the MTOMan I wonder if those people are okay
>>10560025I still think of that person who dished out on Kate's gross stained dress and crylaugh
Is anyone able to send messages and make purchases or is LM fucked again
>>10560134NVM it's working just sending errors
>>10560134>>10560135Yeah it's giving me the error anytime I send messages or comments, but it does go through. The thing that's annoying me though is that I'm not getting any e-mail notifications, which is particularly annoying for checking comments on my listings. I wish there was an easier way to check comments that doesn't involve checking each individual listing.
>>10560135I'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!
What the fuck
>>10560846i 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
>>10560854Okay 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???
>>10560846yeah 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
>>10560846I came on here to post this girl lol. What gives people the courage to do stuff like this.>>10560857There'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.
>>10560863They’re all gone now except the candy one
>>10560846>>10560863FB is full of these bitches selling their shitty arts and crafts projects too, it's annoying. I even sometimes find listings in lolita groups of people selling personalized food and sweets baskets. I don't care if you "really need the cash", get the fuck out.
>>10561206I 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.
>>10560025That'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.
>>10561465Same 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
>>10561630Oo 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.
>>10561630Same lace, so I'm pretty sure it's legit. It's not that unusual with a low starting price
>>10561684The 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.
>>10561688Are you blind?
>>10561688Just 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.
>>10559733I 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.
>>10557233Anon I think you emboldened an idiot
>>10561799i'm so glad i clicked on the recent activity of thiskinda wish LM had more comments like this lol
>>10561832Lmfao I wish we could comment like this more on LM goddamn.
>>10561838i'd love to see her make an alt LM account just to outbid it and never pay
>>10561832Damn 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
>>10561858I 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
>>10561832I don't disagree with tradwife chan. not her problem someone's willing to pay for it.
