Awe yes, the 100yen store. I'm not ashamed to say that this is probably one of my favorite parts about Japan and will be greatly missed when we return home in a couple months. As I have mentioned before, the 100yen stores here are so much more than what the dollar stores in the US have to offer- mainly in the area of quality. However, no two 100yen stores are the same and some carry better or more items than others.
All the above items were purchased at a few of the 100yen stores in the area. Notice the rectangular bread pans and heart shaped pan. These are strikingly similar to the Wilton pans I have back in the States but just for a fraction of the cost! Yes my friends only a dollar. Also that twig wreath would probably run you $5-$10 at a craft store but not at the 100yen shop. Do you like the pattern on the coral placements? Yep, 100yen store. And those mini clothes pins, I remember being baffled by the price of those in the States! Only 100yen, one dollar here in Japan. I guess what makes these finds even better is that most things are typically more expensive here.
Taking a closer look, here are some more faves: fabric tape, lace tape, washi tapes, and ribbon.
I know quite a few people back home who would love to have access to such great supplies for this price. Personally, when we go home I'm sure I might have some orders for friends who are still out here in Japan, that's how hooked I am! This my friends is why I am doing a giveaway!
