SOLD - Lightbulbs & Fixtures - ¥1,000

We bought all of these fixtures and bulbs for our old apartment but our new one came with them already installed. After storing them in our closet we have finally concluded that we will never use them. Some of the light bulbs alone are worth ¥1,790~¥1,980 each.

SOLD - Tempera Painting Supplies - ¥1,000

I took a year-long drawing and painting course and while I loved the drawing, I never really continued with the painting. So all of the following items have been used, although I only used very little of the paint. And since it is powder it is still in mint condition.

Here's what you'll get for ¥1,000:
Tempera paints - 14 colours
Plastic palette
Water dripper
Paint brush/water stand
clips (for clipping paper to easel)

SOLD - Thai Floor Cushions - ¥1,500 each or ¥2,000 for both

Fantastic Thai floor cushions. We bought these several years ago in Thailand and brought them back to Japan. They are great for relaxing on the floor. They are also great for kids. Our son loves to climb on them or just lie down and relax. Unfortunately they do not suit our new home. We love these cushions but it is time to say goodbye :(

Both cushions have a tall "triangle" portion with 2 bottom cushions attached that can be extended or folded under the triangle. The red/white cushion has a small tear in the seam (see photo), but it could be easily stitched up. Both are a well worn and have lost some of their stuffing. But they are wonderfully comfortable and perfect for tatami rooms or living rooms with floor seating.

¥1,500 each or ¥2,000 for both.

Pick up in Kichijoji. Bring a car as they are quite large and I don't have a big enough bag to pack them up.

Welcome Back!

As you can see by the long list below of items posted earlier today, I've been a busy bee. Yesterday, my husband and I made some major progress cleaning out our bedroom closet, a.k.a. the Black Hole, and found things that had been carefully packed when we moved 2 years ago but hadn't seen the light of day since.

We can now safely say that we will never use those light fixtures, wedding planning books, and decorative items again, no matter how beautiful or sentimental or useful they once were to us. So onto the blog and out of the house they go.

Please take a browse and contact me by posting a comment to the item you like or by email (keikosan30(at)gmail(dot)com) if you find something that interests you. There is still much more coming, including:

kid's toys & clothes
Decorative glass clock
Aroma Nightlight
Small decorative Korean bags
Leather wallet
various small/decorative items (great stocking stuffers!)

Happy shopping!

SOLD - Muji Plastic Storage Boxes - ¥500/each

These boxes are the perfect solution to storing things in those deep Japanese futon closets. They are great for storing clothes, CDs, books, sports equipment, electronics, off-season gear and anything else you want to get out of your sight. I just happen to have way too many of them. Now that I have sold of most of their contents, I am selling the boxes as well. Here's what I have:

2 Small boxes: L64cm x W40cm x H23cm
4 Large boxes: L64cm x W40cm x H17cm

You can get them individually for ¥500 each. Or I will sell all 6 of them for ¥2,000 (a further ¥1,000 discount). They are a little old and worn, but they are still in perfect working order and are meant to be hidden in a closet anyway. Brand new they will cost you ¥1,200 ~ ¥1,500 per box.

Pick up in Kichijoji.

If you just buy one you should be able to manage yourself. If you buy them all then please bring a car or a few friends to help you.

T.G.I. Friday

Hello Everyone,
I've had a great first week of sales here on Kichijoji 4 Sale. Almost everything has already been sold. But don't worry, I still have plenty more closets to search through for goodies for you. In the pipeline are a printer with some left over extra ink cartridges, more kids toys, and plenty of books, mainly fiction, both hardcover and paperback. I will try to get them posted in the next few days (or hours if my son takes a nap).

In the meantime, the exercise ball, UMBRA photo album and scrapbooking supplies are still in my genkan. I've had some offers, but no one has come to pick them up yet, so if you've had your eye on any of them now's the time to get in touch with me. You can leave a comment under the item(s) you're interested in or email me at keikosan30(at)gmail(dot)com. Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!

Pick up in Kichijoji.


This blog was created when I realized that the "spring cleaning" of my apartment had run into summer, and then fall.

As I continue to de-clutter and reorganize my home, I will keep adding clothes, books, furniture, and various other items I no longer need, in the hopes that someone else will have a use for them.

Most of my stuff is sorted into big bags of similar items, usually listed at ¥2,000 per bag. Thus I may offer a "Big Bag of Women's Shoes" or "Big Bag of Linens." Other, smaller items may be offered individually, and occasionally I will post something for free. If you don't see something, but think I may have it hiding in the back of a closet somewhere, feel free to email me.

All items are available for pick-up in Kichijoji only, unless otherwise specified. I hope you can find a new use for my recycled items. Thanks for checking in.
