LOVING :: Daiso

29 March 2012

If you've been to Japan you would have been to a Daiso store. They are all over the place and everything in the shop is 100 Yen, which last time I visited was about AUS$1. Daiso stores are brimming with japanese kawaii and zakka that you just can't walk away from.

Did you know that there is a Daiso in Sydney (Chatswood) and there are 2 in Melbourne, soon be joined by one in the Melbourne CBD? With the school holidays starting in just over a week I am already being nagged about how many times we will visit Daiso. Last school holidays we seemed to be there about twice a week.

Everything in the Sydney store is priced at $2.80 and Roxy and I agree on how many things she can buy before we enter. Usually I buy her two items, but she often takes her pocket money too. The shop is big and the shelves are jammed with stock that is constantly changing. Even with 2 visits a week we found lots of new things each time.

Cute overload! Little plastic containers, purses, stationery, notebooks, drawstring bags.

A little book of what Roxy calls "tickets", lovely fabric tape, the cutest packets of tissues you'll ever see, and a fab on trend fluro stripy bag.

Of course Roxy always adds to her origami paper stash.

How cute are these little jars with polka dot lids?! They would be great to put little gifts in.

Apart from the obvious cute things, I've bought everything from cooking utensils (they have great kitchen scissors), to cosmetic purses, to storage boxes, to a toilet brush at Daiso... $2.80 each, I'm not kidding!

It's a fun and inexpensive way to spend an afternoon in the school holidays. There's also a great sushi train in the same shopping centre that has a fixed price for all plates. See you there!
