Last week I placed an order with Usagiyouhinten and I thought a review could be of interest.
The website is all in Japanese but pretty easy to navigate and there also is a special description page just for overseas customers. You can either order via mail or via the shopping card. The how-to-do is also described in detail. I ordered via shopping card because I thought it would be the faster way to get my things.
The assortment is reallly big. I think they even have a greater range of products on their page than Closet Child. But that could be my imagination ;D
Communication was really great and superfast. It took them not even a day to respond to my question concerning shipping and they even send me the invoice within 24 hours. I was pretty surprised by their promptness. It also seemed that I was one of the first German Lolitas to order at their shop and so they asked me how I found their homepage and said that they are really lucky to now have customers in Germany.
I ordered my items on the 05.07.2011, received my invoice on the 06.07.2011 and the goods were sent on the 07.07.2011 via EMS. I also received the tracking number on the same day. The goods arrived today (11.07.2011). So it took the items only 5 days to get to me.
The Goodies (5/5)
I ordered the AP Merry Making Party-OT-Socks in white, the matching headbow and a Rosecorsage Minihat from AatP for a friend.
As the goods on the page are second hand they are given marks from AA to C (I think, until now I only saw marks AA to B).
The items came in a sturdy cardboard box and every item had its own plastic bag. They also included padding around the hat so that it won't get dents or something like that...I give 5/5 ^^
Merry Making Party-OT-Socks
On the homepage the got a mark AA. It seems that they were never used before because the tag is still on, so the mark is accurate. And they fit me although my legs are on the "stronger" side. The socks are really soft *_*
Merry Making Party-Headbow
It only got an A although the tag is still on it. On the site it says the bow is slightly of center and has some little scratches but I didn't really notice them. For me it is perfect ;D
Rosecorsage Minihat from AatP
I did not unpack it because I ordered it for a friend but it seems in pretty good condition. Got an A on the page.
All in all I can say, that this shop is a great alternative to Closet Child, where you have to be superfast to get the item you really want. It seems that you have "time to think your purchase over", because Usagiyouhinten is not yet really well known in the west.
