This time, Enuchi caught the information that there is a general store that is perfect for treasure hunting in Kichijoji, a sanctuary that loves general merchandise. Its name is "Hattifnatt's general store". Rumor has it that the interior of the store is mysterious and makes you feel like you're lost in the woods. Let's start looking for a wonderful treasure!
■ I came to Kichijoji "Hattifnatt general store"
If you walk along the railroad track from the north exit of JR Kichijoji for about 7 minutes, you will discover "Hattifnatt's general store".
Even before the store opened, several groups of customers were lining up in front of the store.
The inside of the store is a mysterious structure. When you bend down the small door at the entrance, you will be greeted by many wooden boxes. Wooden boxes are lined up on the mezzanine floor up the stairs, and there is a checkout on the side. Products are also lined up in the loft that climbs the steep stairs from there.
Accessories, figurines, pouches and other miscellaneous goods are displayed in the wooden boxes lined up on the wall. All of these miscellaneous goods are handmade by the artist. Each wooden box is a shop for writers, and although it is small, it is plentiful.
This time, I would like to find the 3 best miscellaneous goods of Enuchi from the works of the shop!
■ Announcement of the 3 best miscellaneous goods
◆ 3rd place Hiragana "A" brooch
The third place was an avant-garde brooch designed with the hiragana "A". It is a work of a writer named Izumi Saya.
"A" is described in various ways, such as "strange a", "fun", and "modest". Although they are all the same "A", they are designed to give the impression of the title, depending on the font size and the figures that are close to each other.
◆ 2nd place Bread magnet
The second place I chose was a very realistic bread-shaped magnet. It is a work of Boo bee.
As you can see, it's small, but it's pretty detailed! The charcoal is also real, and it looks like a real bread has become smaller. Some were assorted and some were a set of two breads.
◆ No. 1 I don't care Badge
And I chose the No. 1 can badge named "I don't care". It is a work of Mr. Nagaki Perma.
The box where the badge is sold is a unique drawer-type display. At first glance, I don't know what kind of work there is, and I just want to open the drawer.
These are the 3 best miscellaneous goods of Enuchi this time. How was it? There are still many works that could not be introduced in the shop, and new works are being added every day. Part of the treasure hunt is when and what kind of work you can meet. Please explore the store where your own treasure is waiting.
■ What kind of store is "Hattifnatt's general store"?
We talked to the store manager, Mr. Komura.
◆ What is the concept of the store?
Enuchi: If you have any ideas about the store, please tell us.
Mr. Komura: "The store has the image of a secret base in a forest full of greenery. The concept is to search for your own treasure from the various boxes in it."
Enuchi: Certainly, the unusual structure of the store is perfect for the image of a secret base. What is the point?
Mr. Komura: "Is the door small or the stairs steep? I want you to return to your childhood feelings and enjoy yourself after passing through the small door."
◆ Why did you start a general store?
Enuchi: What made you start the store?
Mr. Komura: "Originally, at the cafe" Hattifnatt "in Kichijoji and Koenji, the artist's work was exhibited with a gallery. Maybe it was because I sold a little there?"
Enuchi: Is it an image of expanding the gallery?
Mr. Komura: "That's right. The gallery is done in the gallery (*), but I hope to become a general store that will expand in various ways from the start of the artist."
(* Currently, the gallery exhibition is only at the Koenji store)
◆ What kind of artist's work do you have?
Enuchi: What kind of artist's work do you handle?
Mr. Komura: "Most of the artists make one-of-a-kind handmade items. At the beginning of the opening, the artists, cafe customers, neighbors, etc. who exhibited their works in the gallery of the cafes in Kichijoji and Koenji There were many. Now, we are dealing with the works of various writers, such as those who were introduced by the writers and those who knew on the Internet. "
"Hattifnatt's general store" where handmade works are lined up in a store like a secret base. There is only one piece of work, so I'm crazy about it so I don't miss it. It was a general store where you can get lost in the forest of colorful works and get excited like a child, and feel like you are looking for treasure.
