07:05 am - dollar store goodness
Yesterday I stopped by Daiso, in the Westlake Center mall, recommended to me by vorona. Many thanks!

Wow. I'm in love, and I wish I could read kanji. Everything you could want to furnish your house, and then some! I got myself a small ladle (a lack I noted while making vegetarian chili a week or so ago), a name-card case (something I'd been looking for ever since I ordered a set of free-but-for-shipping business cards), and some interesting looking bath-additive (I'm not sure if it's bubble bath or just bath salts) that I think is jasmine scented, I haven't tried them yet. I could have gotten much more, but I was being careful about not ending up with a zillion things.

I will definitely go back, though. Lots of different types of storage containers, organizers, baskets, and so forth - as well as cool pens and stationary. Whee!

Holy crap! I didn't know they have world domination on their agenda.
Actually I really like Daiso. They're the best of the three or four 100-yen stores that I know of. There's one abut 1/4 mile from my apartment. I've gotten everything from teapots to flowers fish plates to resume paper to toilet brushes to puzzle books to ethernet cables from them. (Maybe I've never bought one of their ethernet cables but they are there.) Some items that are impossible to sell for 100 yen, they sell for 200 or 300 or 400 but it's still cheap by comparison.

I adore Daiso. It's my new crack. I actually managed to spend $40 in there one trip, but that was just because I got the entire set of classic Japanese furniture miniatures, complete with tatami mats and all that.

I sold luchog on them too, especially when he disovered the endcap full of Magic Eraser sponges, and I showed him how good they were at cleaning his old apartment (for instance the 7 years of incense and cooking smoke on the walls). Our house is slowly turning more and more Japanese, even if the language-learning stickers got left back on Vashon (my daughter helpfully labelled everything)

Oh my goodness! How lucky! I'm currently addicted to all the dollar bento supplies. I just figured out that one of the plastic things is for making mini hotdogs into crabs, or tulips. I swear, it took me a couple of years to figure that one out.
The rice onigiri molds are really easy to use.
