If I get all payments by Wednesday and have all charms shipped by Friday, on Saturday I will take up to 50 more orders. That means orders from 50 more people. There will still be a 10-orders-per-set list but I don't think we'll need it - and yes you can order again if you were in this run, but only if you wait until the next day to let everyone who didn't have a chance else get a shot.
NEW UPDATE: ALL NAMES ADDED
PLEASE CTRL+F/PAGE SEARCH YOUR LJ NAME TO FIND OUT YOUR ORDER STATUS!

Do you like photos? Me too! If you are the only one who ordered a certain Pokemon and you're on the Packed List, it's too late, but otherwise it's time to REQUEST PHOTOS! I'll try to take photos requested in comments - so go go go go and comment with your requests! :) Until then check out my progress...
Oh, I decided to type up the story of what happened at the Center as well. A few other folks on this comm in Japan tried their luck also and could confirm I am NOT exaggerating!!
Just photos I was taking to show progress and a few chat-requested charms as I packed!
many hours later... didn't look too different.
UNTIL OCD KICKED IN!!!!
EDIT: comment-requests pics so far! sorry the photos are so awful, i cant find a good way to photograph these! :(
EDIT: more awful requested photos!
EDIT: why can't i do this right XD maybe its better with flash?
EDIT: YAY FINALLY I DID A GOOD ONE
EDIT: most are packed now so i cant take more photos ;_; sorry!!!
I was thinking of taking photos of my bruises, but I thought that would be going too far.
The truth is, it was very terrible. I went 45 minutes before opening and the line had formed already. I was about 10th in line. When the doors finally opened, everyone immediately rushed to the charms shelves. I managed to crouch down in front of the first shelf and started to load up my basket, but people were shoving and kicking in such a mob I got kicked in the head/back a few times and their shoving almost knocked the entire display over a few times.
When I finished that shelf (the first half of the dex) my basket was full and I fought my way out. I didn't know how to even get to the second half- where a big bulk of your requests were from - and my basket was already very heavy. I started trying to wait to get in, but every time I was about to crouch down someone pushed me aside and one guy even elbowed me hard in the ribs, which still hurt. I started to panic and backed away with tears streaming down my face (mature!!).
My helpful staff "friend" - the woman who did last year's eevee collection orders for me and has promised to fill them again this year - saw me crying and panicking and took the rest of my list to fill the orders in back for me. I thanked her and apologized around 30 times, filled some other Sunyshore pokedoll pick ups, Christmas Sweets pickups, TCG stuff and MC+ pickups, then waited.
It took over 30 minutes to ring up the 450 charm sets. The total - over two thousand dollars - is the most I've ever spent at the Center, even beating out Eevee Collection.
So there you have it - I am sore and beaten but not broken! I'm happy I got your charms for you and I really appreciate you guys almost all paying promptly and not getting too upset with my extremely strict and demanding posts. You almost all sell on this comm too so you know why I have to be very harsh when dealing with 136 orders I am sure! Despite that I'm really sorry I had to be so harsh in my posts and now that it's almost over (as soon as it began) I'll calm down!
Thanks again to the chatroom for dealing with my crazy panicking and the community for being (mostly) entirely cool. :) I hope all your charms arrive safe and don't feel shy to let me know if I messed something up when they arrive!
Okay, request photos <3
