Famous Japanese $2 shop opens in Melbourne

While we’re in Singapore, one indispensable stop has got to be Daiso, the Japanese $2 shop retailer that has become a household name for superb value in Singapore since its launch a couple of years ago. We can’t get enough of the fact that they sell everything under the sun and under the $2 price tag. And they change their product range regularly too, so everytime we visit Singapore and pop into their store, we always find something new, cool and just must-have.
