New upcoming break:
From late September to early October, most of China will be in a holiday mood. Based on past year's experience, many businesses, couriers, factory workers etc may wind up as early as mid-late September as they need time to travel home due to serious congestion on the various public transport systems.
Officially, the holidays last perhaps about one week from 1 October, but some people take the opportunity to extend their holiday. Many business owners on Taobao do go back to work quickly, but while they can accept orders, they may not be able to despatch orders quickly because of the couriers and factories being closed for business. Even when all these people come back to work, they will be dealing with a huge backlog, so do expect continued delays for perhaps up to mid-October.
Shipping-wise, Registered air large packet may also become temporarily unavailable or have more restrictions posed on them to ease the post office's load. More specific details will be available later.
I can continue to process your orders, but please understand that from mid-September to mid-October, you will possibly experience delays in receiving your purchases. If you have orders that you require by October, please place them as soon as possible. Please understand that Made-to-order items (cosplay costumes, props, lolita clothes etc) may only be ready only after the holidays.
The warehouse I work with will also go on holiday, during which it may not be possible to place orders at all (due to lack of personnel to receive and inventory tems). I will announce the exact dates nearer to the holidays.
