No 143

Dear Customers & Friends
Hello from Japan! This is Kimono Flea Market ICHIROYA'S News LetterNo.143.Here in Japan, this week is Golden Week holidays, but my these two weeksare incredibly busy. I had to drive several times, and was often caughtby unusual traffic jam. Roads were crowded with cars with families, andI envied the a little bit.
30th Sunday - Went to yuzen dyer's work shop in Kyoto. I was astonishedand charmed by his skill! He is making our scarves with ancient Yuzentechnique. We believe his scarves will be the highest quality one in theworld. We hope we can offer you as soon as possible.
1st Monday - Attended a kimono auction in Osaka.
4th Thursday - Went a work shop of Satsuma Yaki potter - Shima san. Aweek later we will offer his Satsuma yaki(from 15th May) at our TJA. Youmay know about Satsuma Yaki, but we think you don't know there still areSatsuma Yaki potter in Japan. His traditional Satsuma Yaki techniquemakes most regal gold potteries - We promise they are more gorgeous thanyou could imagine.
5th Friday - Went to a senior kimono dealer's place. She had kept somesupreme items for our customers as always. It took very long time toreach her house for unusual trafffic jam. However, we could get somesupreme treasures! Today we will list some of them - three SUPURB maruobi, men's muso haori ( you may have not seen such items! Please check!)
6th Saturday - President of Tsuzure Weaving company came to our officewith 'tsuzure bag project'. Their bags are exceptionally charming! Wewish we could show you right now! He is making more items than weexpected. About this tsumetsuzure formal bag, we will sell our site TJA at retailprice, and also we are going to sell at wholesale basis. All items havedifferent designs, and they must be very special and unique items forretailers. The bags are unique and there is nothing similar in the world we think.7th Sunday - Going to a kimono auction in Kakegawa ( Shizuoka prefecture).I wish I can take seat in Shinkansen Express - I fear the same thing mayhappen as on roads. And of course we wish we can have fantastic itemsthere.
10th Wednesday - Going to a kimono auctiion in Kanazawa(Ishikawaprefecture ). This auction will start this month. Kanazawa is little bitfar, and I am wondering we should go or not.
11th Thursday - Going to a kimono auction in Osaka.
12th Friday - Going to kimono fabric auction in Kyoto.
13th Saturday, 14th Sunday - I will go Shanghai in China to visit thea kimono sewing company. We are going to make large size men's kimono atlower prices with them. To make resonable price ones, we must make inChina or other Asian counties. ( Of course for the high-end traditionalgoods, we offer Japanese artisan's items.) We are learning how to shipand return fabrics and kimonos to China. At first trial we are going tomake 60 kimono and haori set, and will offer to the customers, who areway taller than Japanese average height. If this trial goes well, wewould like to wholesale these items. Don't you need large men's blackformal haori and kimono set? ( Shoko, our elder daughter will accompanywith me. She is studying China, and we would like to show her howShanghai is.)
15th Monday - Going to a kimono auction in Iga.
