diaso is a big japanese chain store, locally found in japantown -
right in the heart of san francisco.
(thanks pam for introducing us to this awesomeness)
it is basically a "$1.50" store.
there are a few sections where thing are higher priced,
(kitchen wares and pottery/china)
i loved their huge craft and art supplies aisle.
but i was skeptical,
$1.50 for oil pastels. hmmm.
i only bought three boxes.
now all i can think about is when i'll be able to make it up to the city again,
and then manage to talk nick into a side trip to japantown so i can buy 20 boxes of oil pastels.
shivers. so excited. i love cheap art supplies that work.
(especially with the amount of art my kids seem to crank out)
