Hi everybody. This is my new community.
Anyone in the Gothic Lolita genre knows that it can be quite expensive.

Id love if this community could help that problem.
I sell, for example, top hats and mini top hats, some lolita skirts, etc, at
http://www.catrina8904.etsy.com

Anyone else sell things? Want to trade items? Sell, buy, trade...thats what I would like this community to be. So please join, and let's get to know each other.

I'll be at the Animarathon on the 29th in Ohio, maybe vending, maybe not. I haven't gotten a response.

Anyway, I hope to meet you soon :)
