During my constant search for all things "kawaii", I was pleasantly surprised to discover a new Sanrio Surprises location in San Diego! It's in Kearny Mesa, and shares a space with Marukai Value Plus (formerly known as Daiso). I was already in love with Marukai because it's basically like a Japanese dollar store which is totally awesome. But THIS...well, this just brings it to a whole new level.
The store itself has been open for a few months but I didn't know this until Easter weekend, which also happened to be their grand opening event.
I think this is going to be my regular Sanrio stop from now on. Hello Kitty and Marukai Value - it doesn't get much better than that!
