Being back in Japan to open our stall at a few events has been a bit of a logistical challenge regarding the shop's setup. The last typhoon to pass over the Kanto area of Japan was perfectly timed for us, leaving a vast selection of driftwood scattered along the beaches of Chigasaki.

After we had collected all that the five of us could carry back to the van, we set about making the shelves and tables we needed. The natural look of the driftwood blends well with the shop and doesn't need yards of fabric as a tablecloth. Once the four events are over, these pieces of driftwood furniture will become permanent features of Makoto-chan's garden.
