the daiso bus

Last night, my friend Mel booked a mini-van from the car co-op and six girls headed out to Richmond to Daiso. To those not familar with Daiso, it's a Japanese store where everything is $2. There are 2 levels of housewares, cosmetics, gardening supplies, and some wacky products like the peach-scented nipple cream I bought a couple of years ago as a joke. I'm always very cautious when shopping there because I don't want to get carried away nor do I want to bring even more junk back home. This shopping trip I did very well and purchased 3 very lovely notebooks, a wooden box for Cornelius (not pictured) and a very cute owl vase. Grand total: $10. Not bad.

I seriously have dreams of Daiso. I really, really wish I could go to one!

Sounds like a place I would enjoy going to. Too bad there is no Daiso in Toronto. If there was, prices would be jacked up three-fold.

There is a Japanese nik-nak place downtown that has very nicely designed products but is pricey.

It must have taken extreme self-control to only spend $10 in such a fun place.

Love the owl vase.
Owl's are a favourite.

AH! So that's where Daiso is, my friend hannah raved about one of those. I'll have to go when I get back in Van.
