Catching up!

Phew! It's been a whirlwind week. Hopefully by now you know that our store is in the process of moving, so don't come to our old Avenue B location anymore - we're no longer there!

We're actively in the process of looking at other spaces, but we do not have one yet - so unfortunately, we cannot answer the most common question we've been getting over the past few weeks ("where are you guys moving to?").  We will let you know when we know!

Last Friday and Saturday were bittersweet days - here are just a few pics from that weekend:

We had cookies from Veneiro's bakery on Friday.



Kitsy's cookies on Saturday.


Wish we took pics of more people! Not everyone was dressed up, though, but some people were!

The last few days have been spent transferring all of our inventory, store fixtures, shelving and everything else to our storage and shipping facility, from which we'll be fulfilling all of our online orders for the time being.

Some housekeeping items:

  • We've been a day or two slower than normal in both shipping and responding to emails this week - that should fix itself by the weekend, and everything will be 100% caught up by then.
  • Ditto for our web site/Facebook/Twitter - we haven't been able to post many updates, but that will change soon.
  • The Q&A from Baby, the Stars Shine Bright's designers will be posted soon! We have the answers and just need to finish translating and cleaning everything up. It's looooooooooooooong and we might post it in several parts.
  • We do expect to have new stock from Putumayo and SEX POT ReVeNGe soon!
If you have any questions about anything, please don't hesitate to email us at info@tokyorebel.com!

COMIC-CON INFO WILL BE POSTED SOON!

Reminder: one week to go!


In case you forgot - and we haven't mentioned it much since our initial announcement - the next seven days are the final week at our current physical store. We hope (and plan) to reopen somewhere else in a few months, but until then we'll be online only, with a little stop at Comic Con in the meantime. We hope to see a lot of you there!

Many people have asked us where we're moving to, and the answer is we don't know yet - and probably won't until shortly before we reopen. We're looking for the right location right now. So please keep watching this blog for info (and ordering online!) - we'll probably be even more active online after next week, so we should be posting plenty of updates.

A few bits of new info that may interest you:
  • We've added new items to our sale section, some up to 50% off! If you've been waiting for a "store closing" sale, this is as close as you're going to get. We're just moving, so we need most of our inventory! But we've added some clearance items to lighten our load a little bit - if you've been on the fence about any of these items, check out those prices!
  • Next Friday and Saturday, we'll be having a little mini-celebration of this store all weekend long, with little cakes and cookies from local bakeries at the front of our store and a retrospective of our store highlights playing on continuous loop on our HDTV. That includes our NHK Kawaii TV and Tokyo Fashion Express broadcasts, a slideshow of our events with Misako Aoki and the Baby, the Stars Shine Bright/Alice and the Pirates designers, and anything else fun that we can dig up! This was our first physical store and we had some amazing times here. Dress up in Japanese fashion and we'll take pics and make a new gallery for our web site and Facebook page!
You don't need to wait until next Friday or Saturday to visit, though - we'll never have more stock at this store than we do right now. All future shipments will be going directly to our warehouse, so if there's something here that you want, grab it early before someone else does!

At 8PM next Saturday, we'll be closing our doors for the final time at this location. We hope to see you before then! Here's our store info page for first-time visitors.

A quick note about BabySSB's upcoming "Sweet poodle's wonder pocket" series


We've had a couple of inquiries today about Baby, the Stars Shine Bright's "Sweet poodle wonder pocket" series reservations... yes, we will be taking them! But this series has a quick reserve date, and we may not be able to do a full blog post product rundown until tomorrow, after the series goes up for reserve. It's very likely that most items will still be available at that time, however if there is something you would definitely like to reserve from us, feel free to take a look at the products on their site and then email us for a price quote today. Be sure to provide your shipping address in your email, and as always, be sure to read through our reserve page and policies if you haven't already.

There's more time before Alice and the Pirates' "Teufel von Hameln" series goes on reserve, so we will have that one posted in plenty of time.

Thank you!

Stock Update video vol. 31! Galactic Journey to the Stars and Sweet Jewelry Princess!


We're a bit behind in posting this, but better late than never! Here Kitsy shows off some of our items from Alice and the Pirates' Galactic Journey to the Stars series, Baby's Sweet Jewelry Princess series, and more! A few items featured here are already sold out and we've gotten a lot of new stuff since we shot this video, but it's still a cute video to watch and we do still have a lot of items left!

Watch our new arrivals page for many of these items, plus our other new items that we received after this video including shipments from Atelier-Pierrot, Innocent World and Victorian maiden!

New clothing alert! FOUR separate shipments have arrived!

If you were worried it was going to be anything but business as usual during our move, does the fact that we received four new shipments since Saturday boost your confidence?


In actual fact, these might be the last shipments we receive before our current physical store closes on the 25th (to be clear, we're open on the day of the 25th - we'll bid goodbye to this location at closing that evening). So visit us soon if you want to see all of our new stuff!  It's possible we might get more before we close, but most likely the next shipment we receive will be going to our warehouse for online ordering only... until Comic Con, and our physical store's reopening sometime in the fall.

One by one:

BABY, THE STARS SHINE BRIGHT/ALICE AND THE PIRATES


We received our Galactic Journey to the Stars and Sweet Jewelry Princess series orders Saturday and Monday. Both series sold well on reserve and we only have a few things left from Galactic Journey. More is available from Sweet Jewelry Princess, though we expect it to go pretty fast. Watch our New Arrivals page to see when we post these items for ordering - we expect that to happen by tomorrow.

Incidentally, we'll have a video stock update on Galactic Journey to the Stars hopefully also by tomorrow! (We're a little late in posting it - we shot it last Saturday. Very busy shipping out orders since then!)


INNOCENT WORLD


We've restocked the popular Rose Lace Book Bags and Pochettes as well as Heart Scallop Umbrellas (both available online now), and we've also stocked a few new dresses in the Glitter Seraphim and Bambi series, along with the accessories to match! (Socks and headwear.)



VICTORIAN MAIDEN


We received a HUGE box from VM on Tuesday, and while most of it went to reserve orders, we did get a few items for our store, including the British Marine dress (a VM dress with full back shirring!) and Noble Frill Pagoda Umbrella in black and Bordeaux! VM makes some truly amazing parasols (usually with prices to match) and while these are a bit simpler than some they do, they're still just in a completely different class than most parasols, while being more reasonably priced than their most ornate designs (under $200).

Incidentally, anyone who orders or purchases a VM item from us right now will receive this Summer greeting card from Victorian maiden!




ATELIER-PIERROT

Last but not least, we received a lot of new Atelier-Pierrot items!


That's a veritable Gothic rainbow of colors, and a full rack - we can't stuff any more on it. We ran out of metal hangers! We hope the wall is strong enough to hold all that!

Of course, we stocked new Bustle Corset dresses and skirts - some of our staple items. We also stocked their new Eden dresses in various colors - these are a style that we know will be extremely popular, as they combine the same basic design as the Bustle Corset dress with a single-color illustration print (gold on green, silver on blue, blue on black). We'll be sure to show the print in more detail when we take photos for the product pages! (But we'll be posting these items for ordering using A-P's lower-res photos temporarily.)

We also received these amazing hair accessories:


Only those two, because they weren't available yet at the time we ordered and so we didn't know about them! Atelier-Pierrot sent them to us on their own because they knew our customers would want them. These will be fairly inexpensive (under $40) and we only mention them because they're beautiful. If they have more available the next time we order, we will definitely get them - but that's not likely.

Watch for our latest stock update video tomorrow (unfortunately most of these items weren't in yet when we shot it, but we'll post it anyway!), and watch for all of these products to be posted to our site Friday and Saturday. It's all available in store right now!

Tara's Pick for 08/09/2012

In honor of our newest SEX POT ReVeNGe shipment I decided to focus my attention on the Studs Rock Skinny Pants! We don't always get pants in from SEX POT so grab these while you have a chance!


What I really like about these pants is that they are simple enough to match a lot of tops yet not too basic that they are boring. The pants themselves are black with a slim fit (but not too skinny!) and are covered in strategic rips, slashes, studs, and gauze patches. A removable side skirt in matching gauze fabric can be worn on or off and adds an interesting extra to the coordinate.


I paired these pants with the SKULL Graphic cutsew, also new from our shipment! This cutsew has a semi sheer quality to the front giving the graphic a faded look with tints of gray, white, and red. I thought this looked nice against the solid black and heavily decorated pants. I also added a classic SEX POT Chain to make the studs pop on both the shirt and pants!

Outfit rundown:
SEX POT Chain - $27
SKULL Graphic cutsew - $79
Studs Rock Skinny Pants - $179

Check it out! o(=w=)^
