Introducing the Spoon & Tamago flash sale


I’m really excited to be able to introduce a new service we’ve been incubating for a while. Whether it’s a language barrier, logistical issues or simply the merchant not wanting to deal with overseas customers, for too long we’ve had to turn away anxious buyers seeking to purchase great design from Japan. So we decided to take matters into our own hands and, today, are proud to announce the launch of the Spoon & Tamago flash sale!

How it Works

Once a week we’ll blog about a product that we absolutely love. And if you love it too, you’ll have the option of reserving one (or more) for yourself.

Essentially, it’s exclusive access to great Japanese products unavailable outside of Japan.


Ok, How Does it Really Work

To participate in the flash sale, simply enter a few details at the bottom of the blog post. The flash sale will run for 7 days – we log participants throughout the duration. Once it closes we’ll send you an invoice. Then, just wait for the product to arrive on your doorstep.

You can check out our terms & conditions page for more info.


Buy in Bulk, Ship in Bulk

There are many factors that make buying from Japan expensive. But we have a strategy that can offset them: buying in bulk and shipping in bulk.

Ultimately, our goal is to get you the product at the same price as you would pay for it in Japan. Unheard of, right? Yea. We’re pretty excited about it to.

So, what’s next? Stay tuned as we’re planning to launch our first flash sale early this week!

  7. Hello from Italy, I saw your wonderful initiative Flash Sale … And why not do it from here, from Italy with all its food products and crafts? I live not far from Venice and I could procure any product required by your readers. What do you say we can do a Flash salt shop internationally?

    • @Roberto – Thanks so much for your comment. We really appreciate your offer but for now we are probably going to focus on just Japanese products as that is what we specialize in. But we totally agree that the model could work in Italy and other countries as well!

  8. This will be awesome… As I am not traveling to Japan this year and now I won’t miss out on great design purchase opportunities !

  9. Please add me to your flash sale list!
