It seems like lately I've been finding quite a few new places that I never knew about before, and Chikyu Zakka Warehouse is one of them. I had heard about this store before, but didn't know exactly where it was located. I drove up to the area and found it, despite some detours as I turned off the main road a bit too soon. Chikyu Zakka, which literally means "planet earth goods" in Japanese, is just what it says - a warehouse full of goods from all over the world, mainly India and different parts of Asia, much like the gift shops we have here on our bases. In fact, I saw quite a few things at Chikyu Zakka that I've also seen at our gift shops, however, this store is much, much larger!
|Acacia wood serving plates|
|Multi-colored benches and boxes that reminded me of the reclaimed wood furniture pieces I saw in India|
|Saa paper from Thailand|
|Pretty knobs that remind me of Anthropologie|
|Thai Buddha heads|
|Two little pieces that I scooped up from Chikyu Zakka - an Acacia cutting board and an Indian wood-blocked table runner|
I really enjoyed browsing around this place - they have a TON more that I didn't show!
