Thrifty Japanese Finds

My immediate and extended family as well as my close friends are big thrift store/second hand shoppers. We all love to stretch our dollar and to find a good deal. I personally use my “thrifty-fu” to score cool secondhand Japanese items. ;3

Below are some of the many Japanese items I’ve picked up over the years. I would love to show off all my finds – but I’m not gonna go crawling through the attic to find them. ごめんなさい… ^^;

Where do you buy most of your Japanese things?


Japanese Bento~!

An oldie but goodie from Cooking With Dog! 🙂 If you haven’t watched any videos from this YouTube channel you must go now! I have followed along with this video before (when it was new) and my favorite and most successfully recreated part of the bento was the potato salad! After my initial taste test I whipped up a large batch for my family and they loved it too! Japanese potato salad for the win!
