Bulk Kimono Package Wait List

 Last updated : July 11, 2020

  • General Information About our Wait-Lists:
Vintage kimono supplies are a highly variable thing. As we pick from sources throughout Japan year round, we find that supplies in general fluctuate as to types of kimonos we can accumulate and offer our customers at varying times of year. Our main product is our "A Package", silk packages in 10 pound minimum; however, we get many other different type vintage kimonos and fabrics throughout the year when sorting for these "A" packages.

We list on our bulk kimono start page what these various types are. As some of these packages are very popular with artists, designers and various creative artisans, we've adopted the practice -- at their behest -- of having a wait-list for particular packages. Also, we always first advise our opt-in members of these things via our occasional email newsletters.

  • Common Question about our Wait List:

"If I wait-list something, am I committed to buy?" -- No, your being on our wait list gives you a place in the queue and helps us plan; you will be given the option to buy before we offer the package to others or post its availability to the web site. However, if you pre-order using our secure order form process, please note that we fill such pre-orders before contacting those on the wait list. Also, FYI, we do not charge pre-orders until the day of shipment and for those using Paypal.com we issue a payment request via your paypal account just prior to shipment.
