Has anyone been to Daiso, the Japanese dollar store in Aberdeen Centre?

I'm going today for the first time...supposedly everything there is $2 and there are two floors of housewares, crafty things, makeup, etc etc etc.

I'm really excited to see what kinds of cheapie goodies I can find!!!

Oh, my friend swears by their makeup. I've used some of it, it's pretty good quality and comes in every colour under the sun. I don't know about the other stuff, though.

Daiso rocks! My boyfriend and I live at that store. Check out their stationery section and the linens section for pillowcases and the like. One small problem -- most of their items are geared towards an Asian market, so the paper is A5, not letter size, and the pillow cases are smaller than our North American styles. The food section is great, and the arts and crafts section has some great stuff! I recommend it to anyone!

(Look at all those exclamation marks! You can tell I'm excited!)

A few notes: They are open 11:00 to 7:00 every day, and the parking lot can get seriously congested (we are talking 20 minutes to move to the next level) on the weekends. Otherwise, it's great.

Daiso is unbelievable. But just be careful, all that "but it's only $2!" moments can add up pretty fast. I love their craft section.

I love Daiso!! It is the besy place EVER. But it's true, $2 for an item can sure add up really fast...
I haven't been there for awhile, because it's a bit far away (White Rock to Richmond... not enough time to do this ><), but they have so much awesome stuff! I like their binders, and they have lots of craft stuff and other awesome junk ^^ It totally rocks.

there are lots of nifty things you can get at this store, i bought a little push counter i use for knitting...helps me keep track of my rows/rounds

but yes, $2 each item adds up fast, especially if you are like me  Lips sealed there are some things in there that are not exactly worth $2, but it's a great store

I usually got there by way of the Airport bus, but the 98 B Line runs nearby too.
