Daiso - The shop of cute!!

Sunday, April 15, 2012 25 Comments A+ a-

It felt like I was back in Japan today! I went shopping at Chatswood (a town in NSW, Australia) which is just like a mini Tokyo. They have many Asian supermarkets, restaurants, bakeries (Breadtop and 85%) and a Mother crepes store (like theone in Ikebukuro, Tokyo) and Yen store Daiso! Eeep!
I spent hours shopping at Daiso!!! yes just like the  one in Harajuku - I was immersed in cute zakka and crafty products...oh the packaging! I can't wait to start using and making things with my bundle of kawaii goodies!
Cleaning has never been so fun! Dusting with an apple, deodorizing the room with pretty packaging and bathing with Kawaii critter soap.
New zakka!
Cath Kidston style mini gift bags, colourful plastic swizzle stick cutlery.
These are from the Miracle supermarket next door. Poko-chan is the male friend of Japanese patisserie mascot Peko-chan.
Fabric tape and Gingham coasters! Everything in the store is $2.80!
Pretty origami paper
Bunny baking gift wrap and more fabric tape (^_^)
Seal shaped bath bomb
I was planning on posting about my DIY Easter gifts today, but I got a little carried away with my hoard of new treats!
