I Miss My Tokyu Hands

26 Jun


One of the things I miss the most in Tokyo is TOKYU HANDS. ย Their motto is so true….

“When you visit, you find what you want!”

And you can lose some calories, too, because Tokyu Hands has about 7-9 floors of stuff I love… from arts and crafts to clown makeup to little gadgets and cameras to leather swatches… Ugh… love love love Tokyu Hands. ย My husband also loved the hardware and also the section that’s dedicated to shoe care ๐Ÿ™‚

I didn’t take that much photos of the store itself because I was just so overwhelmed with all the stuff you can find here. ย It’s so convenient! ย I mean, if you were to start a project, you can find everything you need in one place. ย It’s just so amazing.

They even have on-going workshops within the store. ย I can stay here all day, I tell you! ๐Ÿ™‚

I think they were making leather wallets ๐Ÿ™‚

This one, I wasn’t sure what they were making ๐Ÿ™‚ So fun!!

Out of all the stuff I saw in Tokyu Hands, I was hooked on these Hooked Zpagetti crochet hooks!!! Got me some new hooks, 10mm and 12mm sizes to match…


…these Hooked Zpagetti yarn/cloth. ย It’s like shredded cloth! ย But the label says high quality recycled cotton ๐Ÿ™‚ I had to jump for joy when I saw these… (deep inside. Haha!)


These were the chosen ones…


I’m planning to make tote bags out of these! ย They might be too heavy/warm for a scarf unless it’s thin. ย I’m so excited to start my Tote Project! ย Haha! ๐Ÿ™‚ ย Watch out for it!

Have a happy Wednesday to you all! ๐Ÿ™‚
