I'd like to present to you all: RarezHut!

We are the largest internationally-based store for used Japanese Rock and visual kei music. We have been working hard to deliver a store to meet the needs of the international visual kei and Jrock community, offering a wide selection of products at a very low prices.  We've got a total inventory of well over 2000 items, each of which includes a listenable/watchable sample, and will be working hard over the coming months to deliver timely updates with as many items as we can stuff in there. Currently available are a multitude of CDs, DVDs, VHS, and cassette tapes spanning well over 200 bands.

"Fuzzy search" system:

When you search for a band, it'll pull up any other items available by bands with members from the band you searched for in addition.

Listenable/watchable samples for every item to give you a little idea of what to look forward to.

 

Newsletter:

If you create an account, you can opt-in for our (mostly) bi-weekly newsletter which details all of the newest additions and will be sent out the moment they're added to the site, allowing you to get first dibs on any new goodies! Remember: once they're gone, they're gone for good~

 

Digital copies:

Along with any cassette/VHS purchases, we offer high-quality digital copies made with professional-grade equipment free-of-charge. We realize that not everyone has the means to play these aging formats, but we aim not to let that get in the way of you being able to enjoy them! In an effort to make sure that buying goes smoothly, all items added will have the digital copies ready before addition so that packages can be shipped out on the next business day.

We decided start a new program last year, namely livestreaming auctions.  We unbox giant orders we've had shipped in from Japan, and let people bid on the rarest of the rarez using our automated bidding system.

 

With few exceptions, our livestreams are Saturday and Sunday on the 2nd and 3rd weekends of every other month. (January, March, etc)  Concerned about shipping costs?  We’ll hold your items from the first weekend, combine them with those from the second weekend, and ship everything out together.  

 

Invoices will be sent out after each weekend, and payment via PayPal is due within 3 days of the invoice.  Pay for the item only after the 1st weekend, then the 2nd weekend’s invoice will contain a shipping quote as well.  Orders are shipped off within 3 days of the last day of streaming provided payment has been received.

We have the greatest customers in the world, and we want to continue to give back. For every $200 we sell during the livestreams, we will raffle off a free CD. Simply be in the chat when the milestone is reached, and you’ll automatically be entered. (There will be a meter visible that shows how close to the next giveaway we are.)

A Time of Visual Kei: a $1 auction for the rare and wonderful

Quote

 

In an unknown murky darkness, there exists naught but deafening silence. Ages have passed, and only a few whispered stories remain. These stories tell of a time of magnificent music glowing with a light too blinding. As Time continued its eternal march however, the light became harder to notice and the music less distinct. What once was something beyond the Earthly and mundane had faded and blurred until one would be hard-pressed to find any evidence of what once was.

But legend also tells of a time and a people who can bring back the light and sound fantastic. Is the time foretold fast approaching? Will you help bring back the music?

For those of you joining us for the first time:

We continue our trend of giving away crazy amounts of VK just for showing up, this time with even more prizes. (like a truly insane amount) Nearly all items start at $1, so this is a fantastic opportunity to get your favorites for dirt cheap.

During the stream, we'll allow people in the chat to buy items as they appear using our automated bidding system. There will be a starting price displayed on the stream for each item and if multiple people want the item then it'll go auction-style and they can bid up until someone caves and loses out on the rarez.

A list of specific items will be posted as the date of the stream nears. We will be accepting "ghost bids" from those who cannot attend the actual event. Ghost bids consist of the desired item and your max bid, we will then bid on your behalf up to your maximum

How are people liking the look of the OP?  I tried to make it easier to read and not just WALL OF TEXT.  Any suggestions for aesthetics of things to mention?

I wish. It's actually a "fake" vinyl. There's a cardboard record in there with little hub in the middle holding the CD in place. It's still really cool though!

 

We generally try and keep the exact contents of the stream somewhat of a surprise, but I can at least tell you that it's a full album :3

Introducing RarezHut Crowd Rewards

We have the greatest customers in the world, and we want to continue to give back.  For every $200 we sell during the livestreams, we will raffle off a free CD.

 

Prepare yourselves for a tidal wave of free VK, all you have to do is show up <3

I was thinking about doing an MVP system that rewards whomever spent the most that weekend, but I figured a system that rewards a collaborative effort fits more into the spirit of things.

 

 

Next up, Monochrome Heaven-wide giveaways!  (as soon as I finish brainstorming on exactly how)

Thank you again to everyone who came to the streams the last two weekends.  We're steadilly working on packing up orders and should start sending out invoices tonight.

We are continuing to send out shipping invoices, thank you for your patience :)
We apologize that it's taking slightly longer this time. Panda started school this week, and his Game Dev and C++ classes are not going easy the first week. Valicious wishes she could help, but stupid useless hands are not allowing that. We are forsaking sleep tonight in an effort to finish packing, weighing, and invoicing for all 30+ packages.

Effective January 17th, 2016, USPS raised their rates across the board. Most notable is a 21% increase for first class international mail, as well as not giving a discount for paying for shipping online anymore. We are currently in talks with other shipping companies about getting discounts to make shipping more affordable. (We ship over 100lbs/month)

RarezHut is working nonstop so that our customers are not punished by this increase. We'll keep everyone updated as we learn more.
