Today's fun new thing: dekoden! We're pleased to announce that we've partnered up with dekoden.com to bring a variety of their deco kits to the US. They'll be for sale in our store within the next few days, just as soon as we can set up our display. We do also plan to sell them online.
What is dekoden? You've all seen it, but not everybody might know it by name. Check it:
Dekoden is huge in Japan, both among the fashion subcultures of places like Harajuku and even crossing over into the mainstream. There are many stores there that not only specialize in dekoden, but in fact sell nothing else. There are even street vendors in Tokyo that teach people how to do it.
We're starting with pre-assembled kits to make life easier, so you don't need to worry about picking the right crystals or coordinating deco items. Everything comes in one kit and all you need to do is apply it how you want. We've also got the tool kits to get you started, with the plastic sheet (to protect your device), tweezers and glue. If there's demand, we may carry individual crystals and other pieces later.
We'll let you know when we've got these out on the floor of our store, and when we've added them to our web site. If you really can't wait, we'll sell a kit right out of the box in the meantime :)
