Years ago I was really into collecting cute kitchenware from Decole. Marceline also posted an article about Decole around that time. Sadly the Japanese Gift Market shop – which carried lots of Decole kitchenware – is no longer around. I’ve made an updated list on where to get cute zakka (the Japanese term for toys, homeware and kitchenware).
Hamee Strapya World (Japan) still carries a good selection of Decole kitchenware and figurines. They’ve got the Concombre series with Japanese miniature figurines, Decole spoons and cellphone holders.
Kigurumi Shop (USA) doesn’t only carry those cute Japanese animal pajamas, they also sell some Decole kitchenware. I’m especially fond of these Decole hedgehog coffee mugs with matching spoons.
Tokyo Otaku Mode (Japan) is also a good place to look for Decole and other cute Japanese home items. Psych yourself up for the next round of giving it your all with these cute eye pillows from Concombre.
Modes4U (Hong Kong) still has some Decole items from the older collections left, most at a reduced price. The Panda organizer bag and chopstick rests are a few of my favorite items.
