Trash & Treasure

So i guess the theme of this blog is something old, something new. You’ll find out why now.

Recently I found a great op-shop, or what the Japanese call a ‘recycle shop’, here in Kyoto. I’ve already been twice and found some great bargains. The store is called Waku-Waku. This is a photo from the outside at night.

You can find almost anything here ranging from washing machines & electronics to soft toys and various clothing items!

This is one of the local trains i take sometimes…

On the 25th of every month there is a flea market held here in Kyoto at Kitano Tenmagu.

I was really excited to here about this as i really love markets. I like buying pre-owned things that have a story. It makes it more special to me. I also LOVE having rare items that you can’t buy in the stores.

So this morning i headed out early before uni to see what this was all about.

It’s a shame the weather wasn’t so good. It was rather rainy but the market went on & I managed to pick up a few good buys!


Here are some of my photos from the day.

  1. It’s too bad we weren’t able to get there early enough. Have to go next month for sure. -___-;;; But! I love the buys too~ You should come see the kimonos I bought! ❤

    And that recycle shop sounds cool! Where is it? Maybe you can take us some time? 🙂

    Much love, Melissa~ ❤
