If we've been a little quiet for the past week or so, it's because we've been insanely busy. We won't/can't go into too much detail, but there's been a lot going on behind the scenes - not to mention a lot of new customers in our store, which is great to see.
But here are some news tidbits/updates on various things that we'll hopefully expand upon later.
First, those of you who managed to place orders for Milky Planet have no doubt been wondering when your items will ship. We thank you for your patience and apologize that it's taken a bit longer than we thought it would. AP actually contacted Japan Post about this package for us tonight (it has shipped from AP, but it's still in Japan) and Japan Post assured them it would be leaving Japan today or tomorrow. Don't worry, you will get your Milky Planet soon - we're doing all we can to speed things up. Sometimes getting stuff from Japan just takes a little longer than we'd like, or that experience has told us it should. There are a lot of spots where bottlenecks can happen. We'll update you if there are any further delays, but at this point we're expecting this box to leave Japan within the next 48 hours.
While on the subject of AP, many of you are also asking about their next major series, Fantasic Dolly. We don't yet have a date that we will begin selling this series, but it will be soon, and we'll announce it here, on Facebook and on our Twitter account shortly beforehand. We unfortunately will not have the entire series - various items sold out immediately when reserves opened in Japan. This is the latest info direct from AP, as of tonight. Yes, this series has proved harder to obtain than Milky Planet, at least for us. We will also be holding several items for our store (we have no Milky Planet for our local customers, and we want to avoid that again). We will tell you which items we'll have in advance of putting them up for sale/reserve, so you don't end up waiting for something that won't be posted.
By the way, the spelling of this series' name is not a typo - it is "Fantasic Dolly", not "Fantastic". (We asked, because almost nobody outside of AP - including us, a couple of times - writes it correctly.)
Now, other things. Some of you may have seen us post this little teaser cell phone image on our Twitter:
We didn't make a big announcement because our first shipment is small. It's summer sale time in Japan, so a lot of items are sold out at every brand as they clear out for their fall collections (is it time to get ready for fall already??). But we do have some cool and cute items from them, and we'll be posting them to our web site soon. We're getting ready for fall too! (That's a little hint as to some of the things we have from them.) We'll be ordering more from them over the coming months.
SEX POT ReVeNGe
Also, a new SEX POT ReVeNGe shipment just arrived! Included in this shipment are new t-shirts (including the SEX POT Tokyo 2nd anniversary shirt, normally exclusive to that store), other shirts that aren't t-shirts, leggings, custom sun visors, and a lot more. Visitors to our store can also pick up a copy of the latest Vinyl Syndicate zine, showcasing some of SPR's favorite musical acts all decked out in SPR clothing. We'll include one of these in every web order for SPR clothing as well, while supplies last (we already gave a bunch out today, so they may not last very long).
We'll post the new SPR items soon too - hopefully starting in the next few days. We'll add some initial pics to the blog tomorrow.
Atelier-Pierrot & Maxicimam
Finally, new shipments from Atelier-Pierrot and Maxicimam are also in process! More info on those soon. New dresses and more t-shirts and Lovely Size items!
