We are happy to announce that our products are now available in La Belle Époque, a handmade zakka shop in Hong Kong. Special thanks to the very kind and supportive owner, Billie Ng for her interest in our products! It was so nice to finally meet her in person last week in Hong Kong. She gave us tour around the neighborhood and showed us their workshop space where they conduct classes such as silkscreening and felting.
You might recognize this shop from my post a few months back. La Belle Époque is one of the few handmade zakka shops in Hong Kong. I was really happy to hear that they had some visitors from Singapore who found out about their shop through my blog post! Yay! The shop is located in a very nice neighborhood in Tai Hang Causeway bay area with some great eateries, cafes and boutiques. Definitely a place you’d want to visit if you are in Hong Kong.
They were having a pop-up store by QTPI workshop when I visited last week and the shop was stocked with wallets, bags and collars in pretty fabrics all handmade by crafter Yen Yen Law. You can see more of her products on her etsy shop. I got myself a clutch bag made in circus print! Here are some pictures of the pop-up store:
As a big Onigiri fan, how could I possibly resist getting this set of Onigiri playing cards? It has all the flavors of Onigiri you can think of! This series was created by Layup Design Labo and is now available at their online store. They are pretty pricey for playing cards but the designs are so cute! Besides onigiri, they also have Bento, Toast and Hamburger playing cards! How fun!
Meet gleePEEPS and the kiddos! These bedroom slippers are available in both adults & kids sizes. It’s our first time making slippers for kids and they turned out pretty well. Now you can have matching bedroom slippers for the whole family!

These are our new gleePEEPS pouches. Pictures you see above of Jose and Boy were taken at our photo shoot this week. Despite the cloudy and gloomy weather, the pictures turned out pretty well. Just a little bit more editing and our Spring 2011 catalogue will be ready to go! More pictures coming up soon!

gleePEEPS plushies!! They can stand upright just like the original kokeshi dolls! It took me 2 seasons to finally get this right. My first batch of gleePEEPS didn’t turn out the way I wanted and they were really expensive to produce so we had to push it back to the next season. This time, I managed to get the sizes and materials right. I think they are finally ready to meet the world!

A lovely zakka shop at Ledru-Rollin in Paris. Les Fleurs carries a wide selection of cute accessories, stationaries and knick knacks from Paris and different parts of the world. There were so many items that it would probably take hours to go through all of them and decide what to buy.
These are just some of the items they have at Les Fleurs. I think they have lots of handmade items as well. Really a nice shop to visit if you are into zakka!
