News/ Shinzi Katoh boxes available soon!

Hi! Just wanted to let everyone know that the store is going to be closed or "on hold" for the next 2 weeks, all orders placed before 8pm tonight(11/04/09) will be shipped by Friday. While the store is in "on hold" mode, no orders can be placed through the website. I will update with an exact reopening date =^.^=

Also, I have received a shipment of new Shinzi Katoh designed bento boxes, sandwich cases and accessories. I will be updating the store and this blog with pictures and details. The shipment I've been waiting for from a previous post from 9/11/09 (with the new accessories from Japan) is experiencing a longer than usual delay, I may just cancel that order and try a different supplier who carries the same items. I'll let you know when to expect them as soon as I know!

A few new items

Here's a few new items that have been recently added to the store, I am still waiting on my bigger shipment from Japan, it looks like a slight customs delay : (

Thursday, 17 September 2009


Some of you may have noticed a decline in inventory and selection in the store lately, that is due in part to the large response that I have gotten from the NY Times article on bento lunches. Never fear, I am in the process of restocking and *hopefully* will be getting a new shipment in the next couple of weeks.
I have several orders from various sources in Japan on the way, so check back and see what's new!
Thanks to everyone who has ordered, and I look forward to helping you to "feed your obsession" in the future!

Temporary Closure

Hey everyone, just a heads up that the store will be closed from Friday Sept. 4th through Tuesday Sept. 8th for the Labor day holiday and so that I can conduct inventory, something that is long overdue! All orders placed by Thursday will ship on Friday. I'll have more items available when the store reopens, and I may have some out of stock items available again when the store re-opens on Wednesday the 9th.
I hope everyone has a happy and safe holiday weekend!!
