Taobao Updates: Chinese New Year reminder & New Releases from Tabao Indie Brands

Hello! (・ω・) Here are some new updates from taobao shops again!

Chinese New Year is coming! This is a really huge festival for the Chinese Typically, people stop working for a week.
Postal services will also go on holiday (if their policies have not changed) and most SSs will be away. 

This year, Chinese New Year is in February. Expect services to be unavailable from 9 Feb to 15 Feb.
Individual shops may return later/earlier. Purchasing, ordering, production and shipment delays are to be expected.

Check with your own SS when will they be away, when will their shipments go on hiatus, etc.

I am not affiliated with any taobao brand, shopping service, or business entity. This post is not an advertisement for
any products
To my understanding, none of the items are replicas. If they turn out to be replicas please let me know
so I can remove them
Also, I do not buy down all the items that I post. I only translate what I find interesting. You
should do your own research before buying from individual shops.

There are some SSes that don't charge standard rate fees. They place whatever markups they like on their items, and
these SSes try quite hard to stop people from finding the original taobao sale page/shop page
If you ever feel like you're
using an SS solely because you can't seem to find th
original item link, you are more than welcome to submit it to
my tumblr, and I wil try my best to find it for you A few other regular reader also help, sometime they find thes item
more successfully than I do = Then you can decide which SS you prefer using


Google translate isn't helpful with these, so I’ll just pin the terms here.
預訂/预订: I am a reservation page. This item is open to pre-orders.
定金: Literally “deposit amount."
余款/餘款: Participants of a reservation make their final payment, items are ready to ship
现货: Not taking orders on a reservation basis. You make one payment, and they send you your stuff
I notice a lot of people asking about salopettes. There is no actual term for salopettes in Mandarin, when translated, it's the same as Jumperskirt. "背带裙“

Coming soon in an hour from Surface Spell <non-custom shop>

The skirt's shirring is very generous this time, and the shop recommends that you choose your size according to your desired skirt length.
