as expected, i did not have much time for shopping during this trip to tokyo. tb had to entertain the boys while i went crazy in the small craft department at Ito Yokado store in Oimachi.
They had about 2 shoulder-height shelves of pre-cut fabrics (100cm x 110cm) and i just grabbed whatever i could and left TuT. prices were soooo cheap! i would have grabbed more if the fabrics did not weigh so much (it is not easy carrying a few kg of fabrics in one hand while holding on to a child or two using the other hand).
cute cartoon linen – 780¥ each
cotton-linen blend – 780¥ each
cotton – 380¥ each
gauze – 380¥ each!! WTF gauze costs like $12-14 per metre in SG! i should have bought more ;__;
printed cotton – 380¥. this is the type of fabric that would typically cost $8-$14 in SG.
printed embroidered fabric – 980¥. there are so many other designs i’m regretting not grabbing more.. sobs..
the printed cottons were on sale. i was curious about the original price so i peeled off the price tags one by one..
woot! the price was marked down from 680¥ to 580¥ and finally 380¥!
i can’t wait to visit japan again.. sobs.. did not even have time to look at other things like ribbons, lace, and zippers (>m<)
