P.S. Everyone has a dream. Every stationery lover and zakka lover would dream of running their own zakka store. In recent years, many cosy stores open in Taiwan. My fondness of cosy stores also has something to do with the atmosphere there. Although chain stores are big and grand, they are always a boiling cauldron of voices and hard to stay long. The small stores are different, they are small but with a big treasure. I once told myself, a dream is just a dream, we don’t need to make it come true. However another voice comes, one day I must fulfill my wish of having my own zakka store with my favourite selections.
The chance just comes in tim, the idea of 1 in 2 Zakka becomes clearer and clearer which a zakka store with two-way street communications. A single piece of stationery could be used and presented in more than one way. The operation of 1 in 2 Zakka is different from the traditional one: an online shop on weekdays, a physical shop during the weekend.
1 in 2 Zakka first opened in Tin Sam Tsuen of Taiwai in mid-2017. It’s filled with stationery love in this tiny space and we got to know many Friends of 1 in 2 Zakka. One year later we moved to Manning Industrial Building in Kwun Tong, which is few minutes’ walk from MTR station. We hope 1 in 2 Zakka Store is not just a buy-and-sell trading platform, but a place to spread out the love of stationery and zakka and attract more people to be in this unique community.
