any one here live in Richmond??? you know its in greater Vancouver? cuz i have something that will please even the most grumpy of craftsters.
you know what re ment is right? it's when Japanese companies take everyday objects and turn them miniature (plastic) http://www.re-mentusa.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=209&Itemid=1
so anyways.. you know how a box of re-ment items can cost about 6 dollars in japan and and 24 dollars online (NOT including shipping)
so my mom and i were at Aberdeen mall and we went into the store "gacha gacha hobbies and toys and there was rement for 4 or 5 or six dollars (depends on size) and i bought some then we were wandering around REALLY REALLY close to that shop and we went into a shop called mini shack its close to the  gacha gacha hobbies and toys shop so you should be able to see it .... it also had re ment (it had a bigger collection cuz the whole store was devoted to re-ment while the other one was only a section!!!!!)it also cost 4, 5 or six dollars
it was on the third floor
so i just thought I'd let you know cuz i know how much re-ment usually costs and.......

there's a store that sells blythes, petite blythes and blythe clothing.... i have no idea what the name is but in the front window they have a huge display of blythes and pictures of blythes and blythe owner's contests!!!!

i just found this stuff out today cuz its the first time i went only with my mom and the first time i knew about blythes and re ment (i haven't been there in SOOOOO long) if i go with my older sister she has no patience to let me go in those stores!!!!


---------edits in red-----------
also just to add the mini shack shop had a blythe inside displaying some re ment so don't confuse it with the blythe shop!!!!

even more reasons to go to aberdeen centre! (i loooove daiso!)

it looks like the store is called gacha gacha hobbies and toys, and the other store was mini shack.

they're both on the 3rd floor, which used to be pretty empty other than the food court. i haven't checked up there in ages!

yohan is the mall beside aberdeen centre. there's a big T&T market on the main floor, and a craft store and a great bookstore upstairs. the bookstore has a really large selection of japanese craft books.

i always spend way too much at daiso, all the $2 items add up fast!

I went to see Blythe (first time in person!) a few months back and I nearly cried at the prices for them! When I went, they had a few Prima Dollies and a Frosty Frock for a -lot- more than they are online... But factoring in currency conversions and shipping, it's probably realistic (which makes me sad).
