Interestingly, the prices in the store are a fraction of the prices on the website. If you are within driving distance, its definately worth a trip. The array of teawares is quite staggering. I think I only wound up with those few small things due to complete sensory overload. I actually picked up several other things and carried them around for awhile, only to put them down when I found something else I loved even better. It was way too hard to choose. Perhaps I will give myself a spending allowance next time, so I am forced to choose something. There is WAY more stuff at the store than on the website.
Check out the mpk store sometime - slightly different selection from the Chinatown store.

Oh, dear. Really?
I guess I need to go there next!
I agree with your post on the other thread that a lot of the wares are tacky/low quality, but for my purposes they have some very acceptable items at great prices. It lets me indulge a little bit without breaking the bank.

Not as drool worthy as the other pics on this thread but they serve me well The only thing that is missing is my Numi glass pot but it is nothing special.

If you have any questions about any individual pieces, please ask.
As usual, your stuff is all "da bomb!"chamekke wrote: A page or two back, I was asked to share some detail pics of my sake cups.
