MBOK! 
12th-Aug-2009 12:40 pm
Two things:
a) There's an auction ending in 7 hours on MBOK which I want quite badly, is there anyone willing to act as a shopping service to help me bid on it? I can provide you a deposit immediately, as soon as you provide me your rates and feedback. I have PMs blocked, and can't for the life of me figure out where to go to unblock them, so please drop me a comment on the 'friends only' post in my LJ, it's screened.

b) I noticed that on MBOK, searching the brand name in katakana rather than the English name usually returns a lot more hits. For example, searching up 'Baby the stars' yielded about 7 pages, while typing ベイビーザスターズシャインブライト gave about 31 pages of relevant items! Alternatively, this can be done by clicking on any Baby item, and then search for how the item was categorized (it'll look like ブランド⇒へ⇒ベイビーザスターズシャインブライト⇒ワンピース - Brand->Baby the Stars Shine Bright->One-piece). It was the same when I was searching for Jesus Diamante dresses.

This doesn't seem to be the case with YJA though, so maybe we should come up with a comprehensive list of links/search terms to make shopping on Mbok easier? :D

mbok has a whole lolita/gothic/punk section. imo that's the easiest way to browse
ブランド = ゴスロリ/パンク = http://www.mbok.jp/category/categ_100005800.html (then you can click on brand name & then sort through item categories)

I noticed that too while browsing on Mbok/YJA.

There was a post a while back that had a HUGE list of search terms that I refer to:

It depends on who's up and checking, but often times I've been able to place bids within a few hours and they've been able to make them for me!

That's good to hear. I dropped Celga an email, but seeing as its about 6am in Japan now... hope someone comes into work early, lol.

Did you include "URGENT" in your title? Yesterday I had an auction which I didn't know I could bid on (waiting for a sale to go through) until an hour before the end, but they still got there in time because I emailed them at bustakei@yahoo.com with URGENT BID REQUEST as my title. So they seem pretty good at getting last minute things.

No I didn't, but I will try that next time. Sadly I missed the auction :(

The proxy that I use for Mbok will charge 8% for the service and 5% paypal excluding Mbok charges and shipping. But she can only communicate in chinese =P
