Time flies!

Sorry for the long silence. Yes, my own little shop opened on April 2, 2007. Here's some shot I took a couple days ago. The dark brown drawers are from Edo era (about 200 yrs ago) and I store linen and cotton fabrics in it. When an elder customer comes to my store and see the drawer, her face instantly glints. Those generation used to have these at home and they haven't seen them for the past 60 - 70 yrs as most family thrown away. For my generation, it's something "new" and looks "cool". I also have broken old SINGER sewing machine with the beautiful iron legs as a display. It's from 1930s. I enjoy mixing old and new.
