To my utter shock, while logging onto my Facebook the other day, I found out the the cute Japanese shop Swimmer announced that it will be closing its doors January 2018 forever! Up until then items at shops will be majorly discounted. Like…WHAT???!!!! Now, I am ever so happy to have visited Swimmer in 2014 and it was one of my favorite shops. I was looking forward to visiting it again in the future but I guess what wont be possible anymore! This is so so sad! BUT I HAVE A POINTS SAVING CARD! DOESN’T THAT MEAN ANYTHING? T_T
Swimmer will however be opening an online shop in December, which is better than nothing of course, but I will deeply miss browsing around their cute, happy and pastel coloured shops. I remember my first purchase at their shop in Ikebukuro, Sunshine City. It was a heart shaped cookie bag with the words ¨Eat me¨ embroidered onto it. I had seen it in an episode from Kawaii.i and immediately knew that I needed to have it in my life. So a month or so later I was in Tokyo and me and the bag were united. Its a shame I couldn’t spend more time browsing at Swimmer and this is very sad news. Lets hope they decide to reopen their shop at some point in the future (to end this post on a positive note).
