Lacy supplies and the 100 yen store

The Japanese version of a dollar store, the 100 yen store, had some nice miniatures supplies for me to take home. I did not realize it at the time but they are mostly lacy type items.

This first group is made from the same type of paper as doilies.
 This is the most delicate sticker. You cannot tell they are rubbery unless you feel them.

I went all the way to Japan and brought home a couple of punches. With the exchange rate they were less that $1.50 each and that is a lot less expensive than anywhere else I've seen them. Wish there were more to choose from.
These are the tiniest nail art decals I have seen.
Iron on and the designs are perfect size for miniature.

All in all I really enjoyed the 100 yen store and hope to return sometime. What would you do with some of these items?

Very good shopping!
We have 99 cent in Italy too but there are not so beautiful and useful things!
Enjoy!

¡Muy buena compra!
Las puntillas las puedes utilizar sobre madera y despues al pintarlo todo igual parece un relive. Tambien sobre una pared.
Las más finas puedes ponerlas en los estantes de los armarios.
Espero que disfrutes con todo.

Great purchases, Cheryl. I love those borders, would be nice decorations on anything. I envy you the angel punch. I hope to find one someday. I would make a lot of angles right away in tealight aluminium, put them on wire and give them zinc patina or a shabby white. Then I would have nice decoration sticks for christmas or just for the french shabby style ;-)
Love, Susanne
