Little Shop of Everything

This shop had everything. Each item was in a plastic bag. Each item was hanging on strings like the toy shop I posted recently. Click on the pictures to get a better look.

There was a worker there looking at things. Can you find him?

Here is the shop at another angle.

There were scissors, hair brushes, tooth brushes, paint brushes, tools, cooking utensils, and starch in aersol cans. There were all kinds of gadgets. In the bottom left-hand corner, there are bags of those white cotton work gloves that I posted back in the summer (search this blog under "workers" or "garden".) Click on the pictures to get a better look.

I bought one of the brushes on the end of the top row in the righthand corner of the picture. It's a shoe brush.

There were lots of boxes of buttons.

There were cards of buttons in each box. These are wooden buttons. I didn't look, but I would think that price is just for one. Wood is expensive here.

There were even more buttons inside the shop. Most of them were black.

I just wanted to let you know how much we are enjoying your blog. We lived in Japan for many years, and I like to remember our time there with my children. The pictures are so great, and offer such a real and diverse look at the wonderful world of Japan. Many thanks!
