Hello Kitty Addiction

This post was originally published on a blog for our Etsy shop, The Peddler's Cart

Did I mention when I was rambling on about Paddington Bear that I also had an addiction to Hello Kitty as a child as well? I did. I still do, though it's not "quite" as bad as it was. Back then (in the 1970's and 1980's) you couldn't find most anything your heart desired with Hello Kitty attached to it. There weren't SANRIO stores at the mall. You could only get stuff like stationary...actually...ONLY stationary...pens, pencils, notepads, pencil sharpeners, stamps and little erasers. And only in special stores.

Perhaps my family just didn't shop at the right stores to purchase anything other than Hello Kitty stationary, but that's all I could find.

Apparently, things were different in Japan. A quick search online will bring up all sorts of vintage Hello Kitty items.I found this Hello Kitty sugar bowl (sugar pot?) that was made in Japan.

The mark on the bottom says © 1976 Sanrio.

I've never seen one before. I may never see another one again. It even has a tiny spoon!

I'm sure as soon as The Girl spots this, she'll plead with me to keep it (she loves Hello Kitty, too).
You can find this Hello Kitty Sugar Bowl along with other vintage kitchen and dining items in our Etsy Shop.

Update: This item has sold but you can find other vintage items available in our Etsy shop!
