JapanLA & Sanrio in Association with Juxtapoz Magazine, are Hosting the Hello Kitty Meet the Artists Party! This Saturday, Nov. 7th, at Royal/T! Come meet many of the artists who participated in the "Three Apples: Hello Kitty Art Show!"
Today was 100% kawaii craziness over at Royal/T for Hello Kitty's Birthday during Three Apples! As an ode to Kitty's 35th anniversary, here are some super awesome Hello Kitty merch that we just got in the store!
The Hello Kitty x Loungefly boombox speaker tote bag is now available! The bag has real speakers! To use the speakers, you just plug in any mp3 player into the jack located in the side zipper pocket. Turn up the volume on the player itself and music will play out of the speakers. Isn't that awesome!? I am in love with all of the details: appliques, embroidery, denim material, purple stitching, metallic purple print, side zipper… So kawaii, right!? And it's only $54.00! Definitely a must-have! n_~
We have trick or treating fun for everyone starting tomorrow, Saturday, Oct 31 Halloween! Come to JapanLA this Sat & Sun, wearing a costume, and receive a free Hello Kitty surprise present! Not into wearing costumes? Ok, then we'll give you a present with any purchase at JapanLA too! One per person! We have about 300 prizes to give out, so don't worry if you can't come early in the morning, we should have enough to last throughout the weekend! Our new JapanLA hours are EVERYDAY 11am - 7pm!
I want to apologize for being closed last Saturday. The entire JapanLA staff plus 12 volunteers were all at the Hello Kitty Exhibition at Royal/T, and we needed all the help we could get. There were so many HK fans there! JapanLA will be open from now on though. Everyday 11-7pm! We have SO MUCH new stuff too! Please come by and check it out!
We are also at the "Three Apples: Hello Kitty 35th Anniversary Exhibiton at Royal/T. We are selling original Hello Kitty Art Work by some of your favorite artists!!! You can check out the art here: www.sanrio.breakofdawn.org
I wanted to show you the prints we have available at the exhibition right now. This is the Jeremyville Print, it is big and awesome, 44" x 34". It is signed and numbered by the artist and a limited edition of 100, $200 each.
The Three Apples: 35 Years of Hello Kitty Exhibition officially opens today at 10am - 10pm.
JapanLA will be closed today because we will all be at Royal/T, at 8910 Washington Blvd, Culver City, CA. JapanLA will be reopen on Saturday, Oct 24th...and someone will be at Royal/T as well working in the Art Show section of Royal/T. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to get ahold of me. We will be checking emails throughout the day. Please do not call Royal/T looking for us.
