JANM Store

JANM Store

As mentioned in my last post, I had some news to announce. I'm officially selling Hello Sushi in the Museum Store at the Japanese American National Museum in Little Tokyo. It's always exciting for me to get new retailers, but this one seemed extra special given the significance of the museum to the Japanese community. Stop by to shop for hand towels, zip pouches, and note cards.

Yesterday was the annual Kokoro Craft Boutique at the Japanese American National Museum in Little Tokyo. It was also the first of eleven boutiques that I have in the final three months of the year. We've been doing this event for years now and it's always nice to be back. I also have some exciting news about the museum that I'll be announcing in the next week or so.

The House of Rice Store

The House of Rice Store

Back in February, I did my first out-of-state show for the Arizona Matsuri. I'm always looking for new stores and just so happened to have a booth next to The House of Rice Store. I had the opportunity to meet with the owner and discuss the possibility of doing wholesale. Unfortunately, things didn't work out at the time. Fast forward 7 months later and I now have Hello Sushi being sold here. If you're ever in the Scottsdale area, be sure to stop by and check out the shop. For more information about The House of Rice, please visit the Retailers page here.

Jan Ken Po Gakko 2017

Jan Ken Po Gakko 2017

What a weekend! Saturday was the Jan Ken Po Gakko Arts & Crafts Fair. I had a conflict with this show last year, but I'm happy I was able to make it this time around. It was great being introduced to an awesome new customer base. I also got to see some familiar faces from my time in Sacramento last year. Thanks again to everyone who shopped with us! And thank you to Jules for helping make this show an easy process for the vendors. I'll definitely be back again next year.

Midori Kai 2017

Midori Kai 2017

What I like to call "Boutique Season" is officially here. September marks the start of the busiest time of the year for me. Shows become back to back weekends rather than once a month. This weekend was the Midori Kai Arts & Crafts Boutique. It was my second time doing this one and there was another great turnout. Thank you to everyone who came by and supported the show.
