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.

2017 Happy Lucky Bag – Payment by paypal – ¥ 22,680

Shipping is within Japan only, so use Tenso if you want it. There is a listing for bank transfer payment as well, but most people are going to want to use paypal if they are overseas.

it says 6 items, though it sounds like it’s really an OP and socks? Maybe there are 4 tiny things? not 100% sure on this one. You can pick “Red” (light colors) or Black (black). The banner is a hint about the print inside. Fully shirred OP.  Value of 30,000 yen (this is what makes me question if the 6 items is correct).

Length: 100cm (BNP ~)
bust: ~ about 100cm
West: to about 90cm
skirt length: about 63cm

Note: I’ve never purchased from this brand, but they are well established and many people do purchase from them.
