Last week (or was it the week before? there are dust mites in this old brain), I went to meet up with some friends after work. We ended up in Old Mtl enjoying drinks and a bite to eat afterwards. On our way to that bite to eat, we ended up passing by this window where I saw the most incredible sight! A window full of bento boxes and accessories. I practically drooled and my friend pushed me on...
Now, before I get into it, I gotta back up a few more days before all this. Long ago and far away, I googled the words "montreal" and "bento" and to my great surprise, I found myself checking out this site: lunchaporter.com. I was so surprised, I didn't retain the website in my dusty old filing cabinets up there (aka my memory). Just excited about a montreal company selling bento boxes. Fast forward to my night out.. I still didn't make the connection.
It's only when I brought Keira out on our mommy/daughter valentine weekend outing that it finally clicked! Huboy. Duh me. Sadly, this was only a window dressing. There is no brick and mortar shop. Just the website. But exciting nonetheless! I can't wait to put in my order.. Do you think this will make my bentos look half as decent as Sheri's, or Lia's or Lily's or Susan's or Debra's or Mils, how about Crystal's? Heather? Nnnnnot even close. But it'll look pretty on the outside! lol.
Here's Keira telling me exactly which bento box she wanted:
Figured it out yet? Let me give you a hint...
Can't get any clearer than that right?
Gah! Love!!! Like a little bento suitcase. All coordinated.
Those are lefty sporks! Definitely want one for my little lefty..
The prices are a little bit pricy but there are still some cute stuff I want to try out and get. I think for international buyers, you're better off with the usual sites but for us here in Canada, at least this is in cdn $ and shipping.
