Flea market round-up from Tokyo
Set of lacquerware coasters with peach design, ¥500. A bit cracked and a bit grotty, but that’s sort of how I like my lacquerware!
Stacking bento box, ¥300, with earrings I found for ¥100 each, and a hair pin for ¥200.
This is what it looks like with the lid on. This has to be one of the most perfect designs I have ever seen, although not sure how convenient it would be as a lunch box. For jewellery, though it’s not bad!
Brand new rattan wedges with leather uppers, made in Italy… and barely worn suede shoes with cork heels… both of these pairs of shoes were ¥500 each! I’m thinking I might do something to the suede ones as this pale buffy shade isn’t really “me”. Ideas?
Condiment container in the shape of a persimmon, ¥100.
Gold-dipped shells, (no prizes for guessing what I’m going to make with these) ¥100 per shell.
Brand new wool dress, ¥500.
Pretty happy with this haul! Now just to find somewhere to put it in my wardrobe when I get back to Melbourne…
So many fantastic things! Plus, you might as well make full use of the weight limit allowed for your luggage. 😀
Well, it's not like you leave any of those good things behind. Also, I went to the Johnston collection after reading your post and it was just amazing!
Oh! I'm so happy you went! Wasn't it fantastic!?
