Winter 2017-2018 Lucky Pack Round Up!

I’m not doing so great this year, sorry guys. I’m really busy and really tired, but I wanted to try to get some of the info up. Please understand that this is an incomplete list, and not as detailed as past lists because I’m really exhausted.

Lucky Packs, or “Fukubukuro” (sometimes called “Lucky Bags”, “Happy Bags”, “Happy Packs”, “Happy Sets” or sometimes “Special Sets”) are blind bags of clearance merchandise that you can buy from Japanese stores at the end of the year. It’s believed that keeping old things into the new year is bad luck, so to get rid of all of last year’s clearance that didn’t sell in winter clearance sales, shops will put it in these blind bags and then sell them at a huge discount. It’s a great way to get a lot of brand new stuff for very cheap… as long as you like and fit into pretty much everything a brand makes. Be aware though; you will not get the best selling, most perfect item from the brand of your dreams. If they had a dud item this season, chances are that’s what you are going to get.

It’s become a little like “black friday” in the United States where some stores that don’t have great things to put on sale (maybe they just don’t have a lot of clearance) will often stock a limited number of a specific item just for these sales. In these cases, they usually call them “Special Sets”, instead of “Lucky Packs”. These bags can contain either all items that were made just for these sets, or a mix of special items and clearance. Baby the Stars Shine Bright and Angelic Pretty both design new prints for their new years special sets. While Metamorphose is known to use leftover material to make skirts and dresses in simple patterns.

The list got super long in the last few last years, so I’m including a quick-jump list. Brands in the quick jump list which do NOT have links, had lucky packs last year, but have not yet posted lucky pack info for this year. I’m not including anything outside of Japan this year (at least not yet).

Sweet Mildred Lucky Pack Opening

I purchased a “Small Accessory Luckpack” from sweet mildred on Etsy as part of her Small Business Saturday Sale. Each pack contained a zipper pouch, and some accessories, and hey were super affordable at only $20 each. You could opt to get one with or without pierced earrings. I selected the “With earrings” option, and here is what I got.

Sweet Mildred


The necklace is silver tone with pearls, and features a key and some beautiful flowers. The motifs are common and universal, so this will be something I can pair with a lot of different options. It’s well constructed, the clasp and charms have some weight to them, and the beads are nice. All in all it’s a solid piece that is worth the price I paid all on it’s own.

 

Next we have a wooden pin of a playing card with a really fancy lady on it, who I think might be Marie Antoinette, but I’m really bad at this sort of thing so… it’s at least that time period? It’s got great colors and I love the detailing in the image. It has a pin back and seems quite sturdy.

 

Next we have a pair of earrings with an Alice in Wonderland motif; they feature a rabbit in card suit heraldry blowing on a trumpet. They are brass tone, and on hooks with a little pearl bead on each. Again, they have a nice weight to them and seem to use good quality materials.

 

Next, we have a little ring with a glittering pink strawberry on a white filigree base. I love when people use these painted ring bases because I have a lot of metal allergies, and they don’t bother me. The earrings I’ll just paint with nail polish; I do that with even some of the gold or silver ones I buy depending on the makeup.

 

Lastly, we have the pouch. Mine is a black fabric with cats on it on the outside and it’s lined in black x white polka dots. I’ve turned the corner over so you can see it here. There is a black zipper as well. It’s well made and sturdy with a good thickness to it. It would make a great travel pouch for accessories.

Value-wise, it’s an exceptional deal. The necklace retails at $25, from what I remember, similar rings to this sell for $5, earrings are $10, pins are at least $5. So even before we add in the pouch, we have at least $45 worth of accessories. All in all, I’m really happy with what I got, and would definitely recommend similar lucky packs from Sweet Mildred in the future.

Winter 2016-2017 Lucky Pack Round Up!

Luckypack reservations started really early last year, so I’m going to start the list today, even though it’s still November!

Lucky Packs, or “Fukubukuro” (sometimes called “Lucky Bags”, “Happy Bags”, “Happy Packs”, “Happy Sets” or sometimes “Special Sets”) are blind bags of clearance merchandise that you can buy from Japanese stores at the end of the year. It’s believed that keeping old things into the new year is bad luck, so to get rid of all of last year’s clearance that didn’t sell in winter clearance sales, shops will put it in these blind bags and then sell them at a huge discount. It’s a great way to get a lot of brand new stuff for very cheap… as long as you like and fit into pretty much everything a brand makes. Be aware though; you will not get the best selling, most perfect item from the brand of your dreams. If they had a dud item this season, chances are that’s what you are going to get.

It’s become a little like “black friday” in the United States where some stores that don’t have great things to put on sale (maybe they just don’t have a lot of clearance) will often stock a limited number of a specific item just for these sales. In these cases, they usually call them “Special Sets”, instead of “Lucky Packs”. These bags can contain either all items that were made just for these sets, or a mix of special items and clearance. Baby the Stars Shine Bright and Angelic Pretty both design new prints for their new years special sets. While Metamorphose is known to use leftover material to make skirts and dresses in simple patterns.

The list got super long last year, so I’m including a quick-jump list. Brands in the quick jump list which do NOT have links, had lucky packs last year, but have not yet posted lucky pack info for this year.

Note: I am unfamiliar with this brand and can not vouch for it, but as always, I don’t include anything in these roundups unless I see something in their shop that appears to be of a high enough quality that I would be willing to purchase it (either for myself or a friend).
