More Clarification

Just wanted to assure you that inexpensive items will not disappear from our store. :)

We decided to import high end Hakoya lunch boxes because those boxes are highly popular in Japan and perfect for someone who are interested in boxes of better quality than $1 ones.

Since most of our items are priced between $1 and $3, anything more than $5 stands out and looks expensive. However, we can assure you that we offer the lowest price possible on every item. For example, Rectangle 2-tier Box Cherry Pink is $14.50 at Ichiban Kan, and we agree that the box is pricey (yep, our minds are also used to dollar items!). In Japan this particular product is sold for ¥1400-1500.
Given the current exchange rate of $1 = ¥93, you would be paying a tad more dollars if you were to order the box from a store in Japan.
Well, you see our point...

We digressed, but the purpose of this post is to let you know that 1) the number of items will gradually increase and 2) affordable items are our specialty.

Finally, we are very grateful for your comments and suggestions. :)

I think the new animal bentos are great. They are way too cute and can go in the dishwasher. Can't beat that. Looking forward to getting my order. Oh I was also wondering if there's a chance of getting any high end bentos that hold rice balls. My husband loves rice balls but isn't too keen on taking one of the Clickety Click ones. Thanks for all the great products!

I love the more adult look of the hakoya boxes and their dishwasher-safe, high quality plastic, but I was wondering if you were going to stock more "mens" style bentos for those of us who rely on the dishwasher and make bentos for family members who are big eaters . Also, Clickety Click onigiri boxes are so adorable, but could you look into getting some with a bit more grown-up friendly outer design? Thank you so much for all the wonderful, affordable products you offer.
