From kitchenware to home decor, Seria’s got it all. Wondering what you should pick up next time you visit the fun, colorful 100 yen shop? Here’s a guide to some of the best home goods you can get at Seria.
Cups, Plates, and other Dishware
Seria sells lots of stylish dishware for only 100 yen a piece. Seria’s dishware comes in a variety of styles. If you’re a minimalist, there are plenty of mugs, plates, and bowels with simple designs in neutral colors. You can easily build complete dining set from the choices available. If you’re into a more mix-matched look, there are plenty of cute, fun items to pick from. One of our favorites is the adorable series of bowels with whimsical animals on them.
Dishware for Kids
If you’ve got children, you know how risky handing them ceramic plates and glass cups can be. Don’t take the chance of handing them something breakable. If you get some plastic children’s dishware at Seria, you won’t have to clean up any broken plates or cups. There are plenty of cute designs available, so you’re sure to be able to find something your kids will love to eat off of.
You probably don’t want to spend too much money on an activity as mundane as laundry. So, it’s best to get the supplies you need at a 100 yen shop. Seria has some of the cheapest clothes hangers you can purchase, with a pack of 8 for 100 yen.
You can also get baskets and laundry clips in a variety of fun colors. We recommend their laundry net bags, which are available in a variety of fun patterns and sizes.
Jars and Tupperware
All of your food storage needs can easily be met at Seria. There is a wide variety of jars and tupperware to choose from, as well as disposable storage options. Since you can get many of them for a low price, the jars at Seria are particularly useful if you jar or pickle your own food. The tupperware is available in a variety of shapes and sizes, so you’re sure to find some that work for you.
Baking and Cooking Tools
Want to bake or cook more but don’t have the money for new tools? Find some affordable ones at Seria. There are plenty of whisks, baking molds, measuring spoons, and other tools available. One of our favorites are their butterfly and cat-shaped kitchen timers. If you’re serving your homemade goodies at a party or gathering, check out Seria’s selection of disposable plates and cups. They come in many different cute designs and will help you cut down on after event cleanup.
Stationery and Office Supplies
Japan is well known for the awesome stationery that’s sold at many stores across the country. In stationary stores and bookstores, cool pens and cute notebooks can get pricey. Luckily, there’s some pretty neat stuff available at Seria. You can get greeting cards, letter sets, Compass notebooks, and more. We find the series of letter sets and sticky notes with sumo wrestler characters doing various activities on them to be particularly delightful.
Home Decor and DIY Supplies
What’s even more fun than decorating your home? Getting to make your own home decor! Seria has plenty of low cost (but high quality) supplies for DIY projects. If you do any knitting or crocheting, we highly recommend getting some of their yarn. Make some throw blankets and pillows to stay cozy during the winter months. If you’re new to DIYing, they sell craft kits. That being said, the DIY supplies offered aren’t just for beginners. Even experienced amateur woodworkers can benefit from items like Seria’s wood varnish.
If you don’t have the time to make your own decor, there are plenty of premade items you can spruce up your home with. We’re a big fan of the magnetic hooks that are shaped like animals. Seria also sells wooden boxes, mirrors, and cute trinkets.
While you’ll have to get your plants at a farm or nursery, you can get some supplies for your garden at Seria. Small gardening tools, like handheld shovels and rakes are available. You can also get gardening gloves to protect your hands from cuts and calluses. Additionally, Seria sells planters and garden decorations that will make your yard or balcony look cute and inviting. They even have soil for sale at some locations.
