Typical Shrine Sale

Every month there is a Shrine Sale (like Flea Markets) near major train stations. I went to one in January and just wanted to post some pictures so you could see what they have to offer.

One of the biggest draws (for American's anyway) is to buy kimono's and other like stuff. In some booths they have large piles of kimono's like the picture on the left. The picture on the right is of a typical Japanese salesperson at the sale. I often wonder where all of these kimono's come from since the Japanese people don't usually wear them on a daily basis--at least outside of the home. The middle picture shows what some crafty person has done with some of the fabric and accessories attached to the kimono to create decorative pins.

There wer a lot of furs for sale. More piles of kimono's.
