Sawarabi is the local souvenir wholesale company; they produce Kamogawa lemon snacks, pirate-themed, seashelled chotkes for SeaWorld, and all manner of stuffed toys.
Once a year, they have a bazaar to sell off samples, old stock, and random doodads. Last year, we got pirate hats and a ton of stocking stuffers. But we arrived late and stocks were low, so this year we got there early.
But not as early as some people. 61at &62nd in line. It was a crush when the doors opened at 9.
We got a good haul of treasure this year. I think the skull shot glass takes the cake.
