So here is the Tokyo Rebel retail store in paper form :)
It's actually a bit longer and thinner in real life than it looks here, so don't consider this a fully accurate visual representation. We'll show you the store itself pretty soon.
This is technically our first weekend in possession of the storefront, and we're full speed ahead on getting it ready. Today we took a big ugly wall down that was cramping our style, and we got the other walls ready to paint. Tomorrow, we've got to finish cleaning up the demolition and actually paint!
Working with a crowbar is pretty satisfying. And I think we've found our anti-theft system :)
In other news, this weekend we will finish posting our current Atelier-Pierrot stock - we've still got one or two more corset skirts, a separate corset and the crinoline/cage skirt to put up.
We're also expecting a couple more things from Victorian maiden early next week, including a restock of the Rose Bouquet Stripe Dress that's proven especially popular.
Lastly, starting with the issues being released this month, we will soon be carrying KERA magazine, and the KERA Maniax and Japanese Gothic & Lolita Bible mooks. For any of you that don't know, KERA and its related mooks are the unofficial (and in one case official) bibles of Harajuku and Osaka street fashion. So we're pleased that you'll soon be able to come to our store (or visit us online) to check out all the current and upcoming styles in KERA, tell us exactly what you want from those styles, and then order them directly through us once they're available. Kinda like how it's done in Japan :)
Hand in hand with that, we will have a special order process worked out around the time our store opens next month... and we'll be doing it online as well.
