Hello! I am just wondering about the average selling price for Angelic Pretty's Fancy Melody JSK and OP? Specifically in the pink colourway but information about the other colours are welcome as well. Here's the lolibrary link:
Thank you!

The price is quite cheap, recently the pink OP was sold for 9600 Yen on Mbok:

Ohh really? I keep seeing the pink JSK on FB sales groups going for 450+ ...:/

The first thing on the title of that dress is "defect" so that's why it was cheap.

It says that there's no back ribbon which is a pretty big thing. It's a set with a headbow but the headbow is missing it's music note originally attached, and the choker that comes with the dress is yellowed. Usually a dress missing a piece like ribbons won't sell for much- that doesn't reflect on the value of the dress with all of its parts.

I don't see that dress on Mbok very often to be honest, so I can't offer you price comparisons for a non-damaged one, however the prices on the sales comm and the prices on Mbok have nothing to do with each other. I bought a Holy Night Story JSK and headbow in white on Mbok for 27,000 recently and on the sales comm it's like 700 bucks without headbow. I've seen the Fancy Melody pink JSK at Closet Child in decent condition for about 15,000. I think 13,000-15,000 would be a standard price in Japan for the dress, it's not particuarly popular. The sales comm I have no idea since everything there is crazy overpriced. :/

There was one on closet child for a similar price:

I pulled up the old site in the wayback machine.
Black JSK sold out on reservations, but it looks like the other colors were available August-October at least.

The JSK was ¥27,090
The OP was ¥29,190

The exchange rate was about 93 cents to 100 yen.

That said, new with tags, perfect condition, the MAX value for this would be ~$300 USD (it's not popular, it wasn't hard to get), but I don't think it's worth that much, TBH.

I would pay maybe... $90-$150 USD for it, personally. It's on par with their appliques and prints no one really loved as far as value goes. I'd look on mbok and second hand shops over the western sales comms though. Stylistically that isn't what was popular here at the time, so it's very likely that it's more common in Japan than in the west.

Thanks, that really helped! I know the western sales groups are really overpriced but seriously I thought 475 was CRAZY. Good to know that it wasn't that popular though.

If it helps, I have a friend selling the red colorway with matching bag for $350. I think the bag is really hard to come by though.
