So, I'm working on getting new stuff since I'm never satisfied with our selection, and the thought occured to me that I would get much further if I could speak Japanese. Well, that's not going to happen, but I did the next best thing, I hired a translator. Her name is Erina and she lives in Madison and runs a small business doing translating for businesses. Erina grew up in Tokyo and she's already making calls for us. With a little luck you will see some exciting new brands on the site coming soon.

I'm not going to announce too many of the deals until they're delivered to us. Teasing customers is fun and all but it generates lots of emails and calls with people asking me when the items will be available and can they reserve it etc...

Pretty awesome. I always wondered about the language barrier with stuff like this. Great to see you taking the next step.

Ask her how to say "but I'm out of money" in Japanese.
