General Updates - Obon, brand updates, more!

blogger-emoticon.blogspot.comYou might be wondering what's up with some of the things we've been talking about lately - our store, our brands, our orders with those brands. So! A few updates to keep you guys in the loop:

* First, this is Obon in Japan. Most of the country, including all of our brands, is shut down for the week.

* Our Victorian Maiden group order is ongoing. (We will post a reminder just before it closes this weekend.) Read the instructions and order now to ensure you get what you want! We will also be stocking them regularly, but the stock will be small at first. So the group order is the best way to avoid missing out. Also, Victorian Maiden has now added us to their list of official retailers - scroll down to the bottom of this page.

* Our Atelier Pierrot order is in process but is being held up by our bank, who despite being a national, well-recognized name are apparently not used to dealing with banks in Japan. blogger-emoticon.blogspot.comWe're working it out, but it's taking a little time. The good news is we only need to do this once and then it's set up for all future orders. In any case, we're not going to know if it's resolved until the end of Obon.

* Our first SEX POT ReVeNGe autumn order has been placed and is on track. This is the first of at least two orders; their autumn collection is being released throughout August and September, so we'll place another order early next month. When we do post the items from our first shipment, don't be disappointed if what you wanted isn't in it - it's probably coming in the next shipment. But there is going to be a lot of great stuff in that first shipment too.

* Our ALGONQUINS order is on track. They are waiting until all of our order is in stock before shipping. It should be sometime this month. In the meantime, we've received a new catalog from them with winter jackets and other cool-weather stuff in it - we're deciding whether to open that up to you guys like we did with the last SPR catalog.

blogger-emoticon.blogspot.com* If you're still waiting for Angelic Pretty, it's probably best to give up. Unlike our other brands who have been super-responsive, AP simply never answered us again after we placed our order, even after repeated attempts at contact. It's very disappointing to us after meeting with them in Japan and then being offered a deal in writing. We're still hopeful that eventually they will come around, but even if they do, we will have to start the process all over again. It will take a little time. So this is not imminent. We've removed them from the list of brands we're regularly carrying for that reason. We believe we have a great selection of brands even without them, with more still to come.

* Lastly, the process of opening our brick and mortar store is heating up. You guys are going to want to stay tuned for more.
