100 yen stores are miraculous. For the equivalent of $1, you can buy a whole variety of useful and interesting things. I bought most of my Halloween costume, my thanksgiving decorations, my christmas decorations, and my car decorations at 100 yen stores. They are far superior to dollar stores in the U.S. Far.
You have to be careful, however, because sometimes you get what you pay for. This is the tale of two recent (ish) bargains.
Do you remember the green nail polish I bought for my Halloween costume? I was so thrilled with it at the time, but when I removed it a few days later, I saw that it had turned my nails a creepy yellow color. Not cool. Well, it's been nearly a month and a half since Halloween and my nails? Still half-yellow.

So, send me your mailing address. You're getting a letter! Really, do it. I mean it.
And that is the tale of the 100 yen stores. They are a must, but shop with caution.
The end. :P
