The store here in IMM is just as packed as in the other outlets. But the things available there seems more like the others and Daiso really have a lot of kawaii stuffs.. I remember buying those cute brick like containers with blue, yellow and red in color. Its so kawaii! They are now sitting loudly on my table, filled with my barang barang. :D And at the stationery section, sometimes you can find those cute erasers, like golf club or some sushi set.
But if you wanna buy something like a self made shelf, it may be a bit troublesome as sometimes not all the parts are available. I remember buying one of the DIY cardboard based kind of shelf. It should have 3 separate parts actually. They are of quite good quality and it comes with plastic connectors and so on. But it lacks one essential part which I thought, maybe its out of stock but after a few more trips searching for it, its still not available. So in the end I had to DIY with masking tape to hold the shelf together. A pity though.
Overall this shop sells quality and cheap stuffs, its great to come together with family but not so great for the pockets.. ha. you know what I mean. ;)
$2 for everything!!! Gotta be my favourite shop.
This shop is very big and have many different items ranging from household needs, gardening, stationeries, plastic, glass ware etc. The quality of the products are acceptable; not too bad. I especially like the cute stationeries they have! Cheap and nice.
I love Daiso, since it arrived into Singapore, I have been shopping there for household items, washer fliter (which is bigger and holes on the net is tighter then the $1 shop), sponges for washing dishes, etc... It's just $2 very hard not to grab and grab :)
They have many containers for storage and cosmetics applicators, it's just like a everything have store..
They have smaller stores at Plaza Singapura and a newly opened Viviocity. IMM is still the biggest, can shop for more then 1hour in there
Everything is 2 dollars in that shop and almost all of them are in excellent condition. But there're certain items that are damaged by shoppers.
I went there a few weeks back and noticed a few items that are torn out of their packaging or scattered on the floor. The staff there are pretty friendly though, despite the immense crowd and its noticeable that the staff are trying hard to put all the items back in place.
one thing bad about going to Daiso is that I will just grab everything! Like basically everything that catches my eye. Which is much to my disadvantage because i forget that all the $2 adds up to SO much money!!
Daiso is kind of JAPAN Style of shop .
However, in Japan ... almost everything is expensive than in Singapore.
In contrast, the things sell in Daiso is very CHEAP !
It is famous for most of the thing at the price of $2.
I almost buy items like plates, candles...etc from Daiso .
The shop will play Japanese song , and sometimes you will be greeted in Japanese !!! SO COOL right ?
other than homeware, they also sell clothes which usually suit the kids !
and the aroma oil !!! : ) i like the lavender and apple oil
beside these things...
Daiso also sell Japan tibits..., make-up stuffs, stuff toy , a lot a lot of things. etc.
Beside IMM , they also have another outlet at VIVO !
I love Daiso. Especially the IMM store. It has a wide range of goods and man, when I'm there I can spend an hour plus shopping for stuff, which I need and might not need (haha!). Love the fact they sell winter caps and scarfs, pets' accessories, Japanese food products and etc.
with everthing at just $2, one would be tricked into thinking that it is really cheap, and be at risk of buying many items, and end up spending many $2ssss!
having said that, i do agree that there are many good buys at daiso. i especially like all the household items that they have, which are often not found anywhere else. these little gadgets/tools are not must-haves, but can easily make life a tad simpler/better for us.
i can spend a looong time shopping in daiso, because there are simply too many interesting items to check out. i tend to do frequent mental checks of the items i intend to buy though, "do i REALLY need this???!" (:
