Takashimaya: Knitting and stationery accessories.
Now where do you think the HKHousewife was most excited about shopping while in Singapore? Why, Takashimaya, the stunning Japanese department store, of course. There used to be one in Manhattan, but it sadly closed. Thank you, crashing stock market.
The first little fun thing I found was this cute (and also very durable, because it’s Japanese made) pouch for my knitting accessories.
Does anyone know the story behind Clover? Half their packages are in Japanese… are they a Japanese company? The Japanese are crazy about knitting.
I also picked up some fun clear folders–my favorite way to stay organized.
This one is PERFECT for trips… itineraries, packing lists, flight info. Always good to have a hard copy of these just in case.
As part of my ‘get organized efforts’ I made my own personalized packing list. It’s insanely detailed but really helps me know that I for sure have everything. I give it a once over when packing up–just to make sure I didn’t leave anything behind in the hotel.
And of course with me it always comes back to knitting. This three-prong folder holds the three patterns I’m currently knitting perfectly!
Besides an incredible gift and home goods assortment, the basement also has an incredible food court. Well really, it’s nothing like an American mall’s food court… but you get the idea.
