hi bento friends, i’ve missed you all!
as some of you know, the west coast is bento shopping heaven. at the end of my trip up the pacific coast highway yesterday, i visited daiso (in daly city) and ichiban kan (in san francisco’s japantown). i was so overjoyed at the abundance of goodies there that i thought i should do a giveaway of some of the extra loot i hauled. (really, i sort of lost my mind in the stores and filled my cart with way more than i needed – can you blame me?!?!)
a few bits of information before the rules: everything is new and in the package, except for the one squirrel cutter, which is still new and unused, but which i took out of a package of 3 animal cutters i bought at daiso (because i already have a metal squirrel cutter). i will pay for shipping to the lucky winner. the prize package consists of: two 20ml plastic bottles for sauce or dressing, 48 small round food cups, 14 larger oval “baby zoo” food cups, a set of small cutters and one large squirrel cutter, 12 assorted food picks (including the popular umbrella handles and balloon strings), 15 “pretty” (jewels, hearts and bows) food picks, bunny and bear egg molds, a 480ml “natural lunch time” single tier box with matching chopsticks in a case and a striped lube sheep bag, and 24 cute animal-print baran.
now the rules!! a friend of mine is running a contest for fashion photography, and needs a NAME for the contest. if you’ve seen reality shows like shear genius (hair cutting) or project runway, you’ve got the idea — we need a catchy and clever name that references what the contest is about.
you can post your suggestion in the comments, only once per day. your last suggestion must be in by midnight (eastern US time) monday night, nov. 30th, at which point i’ll pick the name i like best, pass it along to my friend, and reward the person who suggested it with the loot!
alrighty then… i know you guys are all super-creative and will have great ideas, so put on your thinking caps and let’s do this. best of luck and HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!
