Gifts From Japan

What do gorgeous design, high-quality ingredients, and uncommon craftwork have in common? They come together under one umbrella in our shop. We loved the time we spent in Japan and look forward to returning there again. Luckily, we have sourced products from Japan and found others inspired by Japanese culture to tide us over! We are happy to share these items with our friends and customers back home.

DIY Craft Kits

Sometimes, it's nice to just tune out, breathe in and stab at something. No, not your quarantine roommate...how about a cute succulent? Our felting, sewing and art kits will give you something to treasure besides solitary confinement. Great for those interminable Zoom meetings or to keep the kids occupied. We have kits for every skill level.

Stationery & Party Supplies

Ephemera is like a siren call. I LOVE paper.  If it's turned into festive bunting or stickers - hang on to your baby and get out of my way. If you love bold prints and kawaii - you'll find something here.
