Hello! Welcome to part 3! I should probably wait to post this until tomorrow when I'm not so tired (I should actually be getting ready for bed since I have to get up early for work tomorrow...) but I'm too excited! My Liz Lisa fukubukuro came today! After a very long wait (Liz Lisa was a bit slow shipping them to my SS), they're finally here! I actually didn't want to open them right away; I almost didn't want the suspense to end! I love fukubukuro (or lucky packs) when you don't know what you're getting. It's kind of like gambling, but you can't really "lose" since you still get stuff! As you may or may not know (depending on if you've read previous entries) I order the Sweet Ribbon Big Tote and the Sweet Ribbon Boston Bag. The tote had 6 items in it, including this weird fuzzy make-up bag that everyone got and the boston bag had 3 items in it. The tote is supposed to be worth 50,000yen and the bag is worth 20,000yen.
Here are the two unopened bags! My SS also included the purple shopping bag as well, which was a nice surprise. I knew the tote bag was big, but I didn't realize HOW big it was until I took it out of the box. It was also super heavy, so I was sure I got a nice, thick coat.
So overall, I am incredibly pleased! During the process of waiting for the bags to arrive and then having to pay a lot more in shipping than I thought (they were very heavy; about 11 pounds together) I didn't think I'd want to order again next year, but after getting them and opening them up, I know I for SURE want to get some again next year! And maybe even get some from other brands as well! I really wish they did lucky packs here in America as the thrill of maybe getting a good pack is addicting!
Value wise, according the to item tags, the boston bag comes to 20,685yen (about $215 U.S. dollars) and the big tote comes to 49,665yen (about $515, and less than my promised 50,000yen...). That's not counting the value of the tote and the bag, which are completely usable on their own and are very cute (did I mention the big tote was big? Because it is BIG.). So for my $300, I got about $730 worth of items. And Liz Lisa items, even! Not bad, if you ask me.
Thanks for reading! See you next time!
