Tokyo Craft and Hobby Show

All I have to say is WOW. 3 days and I could have used another!

The show is encompassing of several crafts, from cooking to welding to sewing, it was there...with a make and take! Some of our favorite vendors were represented, as well as some new ones to me!

Here is a peek at the show:



The cooking section had numerous booths, the most represented was sushi making classes. This was my favorite display...Obama Sushi Rolls! Now that is talent!



The Welding booth...can you image welding make and takes?! Seriously, this would not happen in the US without signing your life away in waivers! (They also had band saw make and takes!)



The Japanese love making artificial food art. Here is a sample of artificial food made out of wool! It looks real, but only moths would enjoy it!

These dogs are made completely out of paper!


This is only a fraction of the ribbon that was in one booth alone...isn't it lovely?

And finally, as if the Mother Ship were calling me home...there was an area just for BLING:


I have concluded that I do not have a problem with my bling addiction, as I have yet to sparkle up my children's toys! Seriously, that is a mini-motorcycle for a child. I know...it is fabulous, isn't it?! :)

What a fun place!!! All the ribbon, just makes me feel all mushy just thinking of it! The dogs made out of paper are adorable! The wood food looks kind of neat, too.

Ooohhh, lots of pretty stuff. LOVE the look of that ribbon... I see those little ribbon flowers that I adore.
I think you were very restrained with your purchases, I'm sure I would have fallen much harder!
Thanks for sharing
