It’s been a long time since I’ve written. I recently opened a shop in Easthampton, Massachusetts called Kawaii Supply. To my knowledge it is the only shop in New England with the word Kawaii in it. It has been such a fun, yet challenging experience. The response from the community has been tremendous. I have customers of all ages. I can offer so much more in a shop then I could from a small kiosk. I even have a roomy event space where I show anime and do art showings.
The shop has been painted a warm pink in the retail area. I have very high ceilings which I had painted a flat black color. The event space is exposed brick painted white. It’s a really funky, yet modern space. Many people remark how happy the shop makes them feel. I definitely want to keep that positive vibe going. I want my shop to be a destination. Even if you don’t buy anything at least the shop may have made you smile that day.
If you are ever in New England, definitely stop by!

Someone is helping me design a new website and when fully functional it will be an online shop as well as where I announce various events. It can be found here: http://www.kawaii.supplies
