Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto.

February 23rd, 2010


A couple of exciting things coming down the pipe for us. First, our blog is being redesigned by Sali Tabacchi to fit in better with our shop (and to fix the pesky permalink/navigation system that went haywire about 6 months ago). But the big thing is that, although possibly bananas, we are going on a trip to JAPAN! After much hemming and hawing, we decided we had to just do it. We worked so hard to get the shop going, and since it is just the two of us, we never stop working. The only way to get us to stop fully is to remove us from the building.

And now I will contradict myself. The big thing with this trip is to meet with some of the designers that we carry, as well as scoping out some new design for our shop. Plus, we’ll be covering the whole trip on Kitka – from Edo period architecture to modern, the Muji store, small design shops, cherry blossoms and bright lights. And hopefully we’ll be able to bring back some product to share with you at mjölk!

So, if anyone has been to Tokyo, Kyoto and a cool old timey town/small city somewhere between, we’d love to hear your tips! There’s so much to see and do, I don’t even know where to begin!

Also, the shop will be closed March 29 to April 12. Just to throw that out there. But I’ll mention it again when it gets closer…

Tips please, because sadly the above Wallpaper guide is only for the pocket book endowed.
