The first step in making a bento is to get some basic bento supplies. Previously I have written a post on where to get bento supplies but I thought it is a better idea to put up a page for easy access . So here’s a list of where to buy bento supplies. Please feel free to add on to the list.
USA & Canada:
- DAISO - This is where I get most of my bento supplies. In the US, they are mostly located in the Pacific Northwest and the Silicon Valley area. Check out this link for the store nearest you. In Canada, there is a huge Daiso in the Aberdeen Center in Richmond, BC.
- AMAZON.COM – If you are looking for a bento to put hot food, this is where you can get it. Mr. Bento and Ms. Bento are great options. Check out more bento options HERE.
- MICHAELS & JOANN - These 2 stores have lots of cookie cutters and silicon cups like this sunflower cup. When you sign up for Joann’s mailing list, they will send you a 40% off coupon every few weeks. Michael’s usually offer 40% coupons in the Sunday papers too.
- Korean grocery stores ( H-Mart, Paldo Bellevue) - My favorite place to get my Lock-Lock boxes like this bento
- 100 Yen Stores - There are a few of these stores scattered around the KL/PJ area. Check out this post by Bento Pet for more details.
- New Stylish Tokyo – They seem to have quite a lot of cute stuff.
