As I had to take a trip to  Roppongi I thought I'd do a quick Google search of anywhere worth checking out while I was in the area. I found Uguisu, a little shop in Roppongi in Azabudai. It's online shop (prices in dollars for thouse outside of Japan) and the blog are run by Hiki who opened the store last year. And as the website says Uguisu is  'A place to find unique and well designed quality Japanese stationery, paper items, kitchen linens, tableware, gift, craft & zakka. Shipped worldwide from Tokyo,'.

Hiki speaks English which was great for me so I was able to ask questions and not have try in my crappy Japanese (I know I should practice more). I had initially gone for myself but ended up buying a couple of Christmas gifts which is always good. I did have to restraint myself though, I really wanted to buy one these beautiful Furoshiki either for myself or my mum (but probably for me) as well as all the pretty paper goods.

I did pick a set of these lovely the air vases for my mum. I had previously seen them at a paper exhibition in Meguro in the summer and regretted not buying them then. I used to have a things for notebooks but now its all about paper bags and mini envelopes. The mini envelopes and paper dots I bought there I absolutely love and have started using on Christmas projects.

I will definitely be making a trip in the new year and will be an online buyer in the future when I 'm living in foreign parts again. Not bad for a last minute Google search eh?!?!
