I got back last week from my Asia vacation; I'll spare the details, but the exciting thing is that I brought back a very special treasure box of flats. :D
You can read more about it under the cut, but it's definitely something that calls for a sales post!
A friend of mine who lives in Japan has a connection to an indie vintage dealer who has been collecting for years; he collects merch dating back to the 50's, and even had some rare pokemon merchandise from the 90s which he was also willing to sell to me. After a long talk about our collecting addictions, he pulled out this amazing box of old flats and I was actually able to purchase them from him personally. I definitely had not expected him to offer them to me, and in all of my years of collecting and searching for flats, this is defintely one of the rarer and more diverse lots I've stumbled across!
(And more exciting than finding some random Y!J lot by default just because it happened randomly during a vacation)
Quite a few of these are really rare, and some of these flats are first timers even for me (notorious flat enthusiast!) - hopefully there are some treasures that you avid flat lovers can add to your collections! I definitely picked out a few for myself, but I'll save that for an update in the near future. ;D
Just a rundown of some quick rules and info before we get started!
By commenting on this post, I will assume that they have been read and understood. :)
I am shipping from Canada! Flats start at $2.50 to the US and $3.50 anywhere else. Shipping within Canada starts at $2.
Most of these flats are in great shape, but some of them have minor wear - if you are picky, please double check with me.
Don't be shy asking for something that has already been sold! I do have doubles, but not for all of them, so feel free to ask anyway.
Holds are no problem if you are bidding on an auction, or are committed to specific items and will pay when you say you will.
Please don't back out of a sale - be aware of the difference between a commitment and a quote; commitments always take priority over quotes.
If you are only committed to specific items, make sure to specify a conditional commitment (ex: "I only want everything if X and Y are available").
These amadas below are up for offers! Some are available for straight sale.
I will close offers on Thursday May 1st @ 10pm PST or when I receive an offer I am satisfied with!

On another note, I hope people have been receiving their psychic-type plush and other goods from my previous sales post! They were all shipped the day after as scheduled - it was such a delight to be in town, and excitedly playing the UFO catchers for my first time during the psychic-type promo, then beinging able to share the prizes with everyone. Also getting some of my favourite psychics in their mini plush form was a huge plus. :D
Is anyone else excited for the upcoming Normal-type promo in May? I was dying for a new Miltank plush, but I am happy happy to see a brief feature of her in the form of a glass - I hope these will be easier to find than the Chimecho/Pikachu wind chimes, which were nowhere to be seen when I was in town!
