Reuse Japan Market

So yesterday I went to a large event called the Reuse Japan Market, which was basically like a large jumble sale or car boot sale held in Fukuoka Dome the local baseball stadium.

The aim of this event was not only to recycle old items you might just be planning to throw away but also reuse items in new ways. I saw an interesting example of this where one stall was making bags out of denim jeans, it’s very original and they looked good! I bought a whole range of stuff some used and some new from local (and international) jewellery designers. So here are some pictures of the event as well as the things I bought.
