Is that a banana holder in your hand or are you just happy to see me?

Sometimes my favorite thing to do on a Saturday is go to a store where I don't necessarily need anything and buy a whole bunch of it. Thank GOD my friend Annie introduced me to Daiso recently, because it has changed my life. Nowhere else on the planet can you find nail gems, banana holders, black q-tips ("earwax can be seen on tips clearly after using"), and disposable underwear for men and ladies. UNDER ONE ROOF. For those of you not familiar, Daiso is a Japanese dollar-store chain that basically stocks everything you never knew you wanted. Sometimes it's better than clothes:

men's disposable panties, banana holder
Cell phone holder, cruel and unusual anti-feline mat
toothpick holders, portable ashtray
Black q-tips, black facial puff

If you ever get a chance to do to Daiso, I highly recommend going.

Oh look! You can shop online.


  1. haha looks like a fun trip!

    <3 steffy

  2. ahaha this kind of places can drive me crazy! they are perfect to satisfy small shopping needs! :)

  3. I am dying to visit San Francisco and this is only making it worse!

  4. Okay, that's just an effin' awesome store! Next time I'm out in San Fran, I'm definitely hitting it up.

  5. Do I even want to ask why someone would need disposable unda'wears?

  6. I love all this quirky Japanese stuff (I worked for a Japanese firm for five years - perhaps that's why I'm so curious...)

  7. Those things look so fun!

  8. Hey, once again excuse my slacker tendancies. Missed your blog! thats so awesome that you heard my sisters song on Skins. I still have not yet seen the episode though, but people have told me about it. I guess her song was also featured in a payless commercial (WINNING!) although that I have yet to see... haha. I'm so glad you like it, I'll be sure to tell her.

    Oh I love that shit! there use to be a store like that in Miami where they sold only Japenese products. I would go in there, get sushi and buy all these products that I had no idea what they were or even said.. ahhh I need to move back to a city

  9. those 1st 2 pictures had me pissing myself laughing!!! LOL
