After two days' craziness - crowd of thousands of people waiting to get in the first Daiso Japan opening in New York, it quieted down on the third day, at least not when I was there at 10:30 AM Sunday morning.
Everything $1.99 except labeled otherwise - Japanese snacks, candy, ramen, beauty products, kitchenware, utensils, toys, solar dancing toys, stuff toys, tools, gardening tools, stationery, stickers, cute erasers etc.
It is good that they opened in Flushing where I can just walk to there.
