A treasured Japanese concept, Mottainai means “what a waste!”. Focusing on the “4 R’s”, reduce, reuse, recycle and respect, they have gathered unique items and accessories from friends around the world and offer them for sale in order to give them new life.
The Bazaar is packed with an incredible array of reasonably-priced Asian-inspired items, such as pottery, kimono and yukata, origami crafts, handmade items, scarves, scrolls, posters, scrolls, books, prints, chado equipment, jewelry, furniture and more!
THE BAZAAR IS FREE AND OPEN FOR ALL
-Saturday, Dec 10th / 10am-4pm
The Japan House Matcha café will be open only on Saturday. Visitors may purchase an add-on for a bowl of matcha and wagashi (traditional Japanese sweet) while registering. This will be served to guests on a tray to casually enjoy while shopping – no formal tea ceremony will occur. Preorders close on December 8 but limited numbers of matcha and wagashi will be available for purchase in-person on Saturday. *If purchased for Sunday, the add-on will be canceled and refunded – please note that EventBrite fees are non-refundable.
-Sunday, Dec 11th / 12pm-3pm
Cash, check, and all major credit cards are accepted. All proceeds from the Bazaar go to support the Japan House Internship Program. Monetary donations are also accepted during the event.
Stop by as many times as you wish! This is a family friendly event, and there is definitely something for everyone!
