I got a Little Twin Stars’ “secret” towel pouch.

The towel hanky’s size looks like very ordinary, but it has zipper as a pouch.

You can bring something secretly – not looks as you “need” to bring small pouch to bathroom or somewhere.
Or other ways, you can put some ice gel pack in it on summer time, or use it as temporary jewelry case, and more.

I was looking forward to start selling “Fresh Punch” series stationeries from Sanrio’s throwback “My Lovely 80′s” collection.
Surprisingly, this collections were sold out very quick, almost just only one day!
There’s so many girls who loved “Fresh Punch collection” on real-time 80′s, or who are so young and don’t know real-time but love the cutest collections.
I could barely get cutest small tissue paper pouch. I hope Sanrio will be considering to sell Fresh Punch collections again, very soon.
