Blog Sale!

Due to various reasons (no job + need to move from where I live in 2 weeks) I decided I will have to sell some of the kimono and obi I've collected.

I prefer the blog option because any other site (ebay, etsy etc) work on commission base, and I need to save as much as possible.

How does it work? I will post all the items I'm selling below, along with the price. Shipping for either obi or kimono is 10 Eur for Europe, 20USD if USA (the shipping fee is huge, sorry about that). All items are shipped from Romania.

Whoever is interested in acquiring any of the items, please leave a comment, claiming the item - that should cover the "first come, first served" base. You can then send me an email with your details at kaballa@gmail.com. All payments should be made via Paypal, within 3 days of receiving the invoice. otherwise, the item will be back for sale.

I am new to this type of commerce, so please be kind with me!

Ok! That being said, here are the items for sale:

Item 1: Purple, early showa komon. Price: 45 EUR. - SOLD

Most of you have seen me wearing this komon at least 2 times. You can see me wearing it here!

Measurements: Width: 129cm; length: 156cm; can't see any faults in it.

Item 2: Golden butterfly furisode. Price 60 Eur

I'm wearing it here!

Measurements: width: 132cm, length: 165cm.

For all the items above I can take additional pics for those interested. I didn't want to make this post too long.

Also, you can check out my Virtual Tansu and if there is something that catches your eyes, let me know. Like i said, I need the money, so most of the items there will be for sale. Just email me and we'll take it form there.

Thank you in advance for your help.


  1. Hi Ume,

    I love that purple komom! May I ask what your own lenght is? I usually search for kimono with a minimum lenght of 160 cm (I'm 177 cm), do you think I could wear a 156 cm kimono?

  2. I'm 1.70m tall, and I have always managed an ohashori with the purple komon.

  3. that purple one is gorgeous!

  4. If it hasn't been claimed, I would like to claim the purple komon ^_^
    I think my latest obi-purchase will may be perfect for it...

  5. Kyuukaryuko - you got it! Please send me a message with your name, address& paypal to kaballa@gmail.com .

  6. Hello Ume-san!

    I looked through you "Virtual Tansu" and maybe I would be interested in this:



    I donnot know if you really want to sell it *haha* But first of all I want to know the length of it and how much it would cost. :)

    Thanks in advance. ^^

  7. hello Aichi-san!
