On the way home from a quick visit to the Museum this morning, Big-P let me out on Johnston Street to drop in on the newly established Zakkaya. While he and Amelia circled the block twice, I managed to spend too much money on beautiful, handcrafted Japanese goods (christmas presents you know)- it was all like something right out of a Japanese craft book. I was in seventh heaven. While the stock was a little thin on the ground, it’s definitely worth a drop-in, for those with a penchant for zakka and a need for a little inspiration!

    i was wondering what they sold in there. so that little elephant, what does it do? is it a brooch or decoration or something? i particularly like that cream corduroy fabric, very lovely.
