This is an amazingly wonderful lot of three boxes of vintage unused, sealed Japan kids' crafting beads, still in their original Showa Era boxes and packaging from the 1960s/1970s!
One is a box of the tiniest seed beads and also has some thread and wire bits in it. It has a little book with a girl and a panda on the cover. I am so curious about what is in it!
You get a bigger box of cute plastic rainbow colored "hoop" beads which comes with a lovely retro instructions guide on how to string them into a skipping rope, for instance!
The last one is a smaller paper packet of plastic rainbow beads which would work very nicely as kitsch jewelry! Its illustrated packaging is also super super gorgeous!
As these are very old paper/plastic products, please expect some degree of wear and tear from age and storage. These three items have general dust and grime which I've not tried to clean off, and the plastic boxes have signs of scratches and smudges. The contents, however, look clean and new! Please look at all the photos carefully! :)
Please note shipping T&Cs:
> International mail from Singapore to the rest of the world takes anything from one week (when the postman is on steroids) to four weeks (when the postman has been kidnapped by aliens). If you are residing in Canada, please purchase only if you are okay with your parcel reaching you after four weeks or longer. I'm not sure why but my recent packages to Canada have mostly gone AWOL. :(
> Shipping costs include tracking (sorry, even for local mail to Singapore addresses as things do get lost!) and padded envelope/ box where applicable.
> I will always contact you to let you know that I have received your order and I'll follow up with you in most cases to check if you have received your purchase (unless I've been kidnapped by aliens too)
> If tracking information shows that your purchase has arrived in your country, I'm not able to offer a refund in most cases. This is because Singapore Post only offers tracking until the point the package reaches your country's mail processing HQ. From there on, I'm not able to locate where your package is as it travels around your country to reach your city/state/town. :)
> Please always message me first if there's anything amiss with your delivery or order. Thank you!
