1. Signage, blackboards, lamps, lanterns – they have everything a restaurant needs to attract diners from across the street, and maybe a fun little accessory for your kitchen!

2. Take a look at the bowls, steaming wares, and rolling pins. You could look like a pro with these hanging on the kitchen wall, even if you can’t cook like one!

3. Beautifully painted Japanese bowls are sold here at bargain prices, making every dish look just a tad more scrumptious.
