Yesterday, I showed you some ideas for display units and now we’ll look at some kawaii to display. Filling the larger shelves is easy but finding tiny things for the smaller shelves is more difficult but also really fun.
Rement miniatures should be your first stop as they’re so perfect and totally kawaii. Modes4u have a great selection including this Rilakkuma supermarket range.
Etsy is a great source of tiny kawaii, whether you browse the amazing dollhouse miniatures or the tiny handmade creations of sellers like Made With Clay and Love we featured a few weeks ago, or SuAmi‘s teeny crochet creatures.
Gashapon /capsule toys are also great for tiny, cute and odd things. I always go mad on them when I’m in Japan, but there’s some cute things to be found in local machines now too. We have a guide for where to buy them online.
Iwako erasers are a cute and affordable collection to start with. UK folks can pick them up individually at Paperchase stores and Artbox have great prices on sets.
Kawaii Shop Japan have a whole Small & Tiny section, which is always filled with adorable little things. If they have a chain or loop attached that gets in the way, it’s usually pretty easy to unscrew the whole attachment.
In my own display, I also have pebbles and pinecones from my travels, things I’ve made or that friends have made for me and stuff from my childhood. Have a dig around in the corners of your bedroom and you might find all sorts of interesting things. If you make a kawaii display, do send us a photo!
