Yikes, I'd love that art but ouch! Hopefully there are scans of it somewhere.

I think I'd definitely rather pay a nutty price for Haunted Castle art than be made to actually play it ;)

Anyone trying to buy stuff via SMJ today?

Got this message this morning....

We're sorry, SMJ is no longer accepting new bids or orders.
We ask that you finalize all payments and submit a shipping request as soon as your items are in stock.
Please keep in mind, due to the holiday season, we will not ship from 12/28 to 1/6.

Hopefully no problems- I've got £500 worth of pcbs in SMJ's Tokyo storage. And they have $150 bidding deposit.

Guess I'll be using buyee for my YAJ fix going forward.

Fwiw FedEx is now mega cheap (compared to the past) with FromJapan. I'm still happy with the service there, haven't compared with buyee though.

Seeing that message on my end as well. Will be very unfortunate if they are indeed closing up shop, as they were, by far, the best proxy service I have ever used. Great pricing on fees as well. Sent them an email asking for more details, and I'll share here if/when I hear back.

I have a rather large deposit with them, so I'm a little nervous about getting that back, but SMJ has always been good to me, so not really too concerned about it.

Anyone have any recommendations for where to go next? Can't say I'm a fan of Buyee's crazy fees/structure, and I didn't care for Rinkya the last time I tried to use it.

From Japan are about the best of the rest, and I used to switch between both.

Bad news if SMJ are going. Hopefully I'll get my deposit back, only $90, but I don't really want to just lose it.

Has anyone used ZenMarket?

There's a couple of Items I'm after that finish early next week I was going to use SMJ for but looks like I'm out of luck....

This would happen when I'm still in need of a Fastio TTX2 and a couple of Vewlix parts....

It'll save me a fortune - I was spending £300-400 a month with SMJ.
