You may have noticed this chain of dollar stores spring up across the country in the past year or so, all pinks and purples, and brightly coloured signs. Yes, that’s right, we’re talking about Daiso.

Daiso is a Japanese mega-chain of dollar stores that sells quality items for a flat price of $2.80 per item, regardless of size or type. You can find a range of household items, such as crockery and storage; health and beauty accessories and products; clothing and apparel; and DIY craft, electrical, and auto tools — you name it, Daiso will probably have it.

This is a great place for crafters to get their essentials. Whether you’re after embroidery, papercraft, sketching, calligraphy, or painting, Daiso has basic tools to help you get started. Need temporary paintbrushes? Watercolours? Craft scissors? Daiso has you covered. If you’re looking for tools, such as screwdrivers, torches, USBs, blades, and screws, you can find them all inside Daiso.

Here are a few more examples of what they offer. All images are from the official website:

Undermats: For all your precision-cutting needs.


Pinking scissors: Interchangeable blades with a sturdy handle.


Multi-purpose adhesive: A powerful super-glue that works on wood, metal, plastic, ceramics, and rubber.


Portable sewing kit: No more worrying about wardrobe malfunctions!



The products are of excellent quality, especially considering the incredibly low price. The tools are all very basic — they aren’t a specialty store, after all — but will serve well for beginners, and as stand-ins until you’re ready to invest in more expensive options. You’ll also get a kick out of some of their winter gear, such as these popular pocket hand warmers (a must-have for all Japanese winters).

There are stores across New South Wales, Queensland, and Victoria, so find your nearest one using their online store locator.
