It's a very gloomy day, but I have the day off work soooo you won't hear any more complaints out of me! I stopped by one of my favorite antique shops in the suburbs today. If this store as in the city it would be cleared out in a week! They are stocked with 50's and 80's pop culture gems.

I also stopped in Mitsuwa Marketplace for a bit becuase I had a giftcard to use. I found some Dolly Wink mascara, Hello Kitty shaped pasta, candycandycany and magazines. Japanese magazines are THE BOMB. Why? Because they come with free gifts (Hello, Milkfed. cosmetic bag)! They’re as big as books! The graphic design is over stimulating and creative! The clothes are uber-trendy and cute! The photographers have fun! The list goes on…
