I recently got an email from Omiyage, who specialise in Japanese stationery, masking tape, fabric, craft supplies, paper, zakka and more imported directly from Japan. Well, really, what more could you want?
I was very taken with the adorable paper animal balloons above but there’s so much good stuff here, from Shinzi Katoh letter sets and bento boxes to cute cupcake stickers and pop-up birthday cards.
Omiyage are based in Canada and offer great shipping rates within Canada but they’ll also ship internationally – just send them an email.
Updated 2020: This shop is now closed – go shopping at The Best Kawaii Shops Worldwide instead.
