Rental Box for YOUR ART at Utsuwa Floral Design

Starting Now!
at Utsuwa Floral Design: NEW PEOPLE 2F


UTSUWA FLORAL DESIGN (NEW PEOPLE 2F) will be starting a “Rental Box”

It is a system in which we will rent out shelf space, etc at UTSUWA for a monthly rental fee to showcase/sell your handmade items. UTSUWA is usually a plant store, but we are consistently searching for new, refreshing, and interesting items daily! Plus, our desire to “meet various artists & their creations” has lead us to starting a “Rental Box,” an already common concept in Japan.

For those of you who strongly desire…

  • A chance for others to be able to pick up your handcrafts and see it in person
  • A chance to find a place to showcase your items
  • Got handcrafts laying around the house with no place to go
  • Want to earn a bit of pocket money 

What kind of things can I have showcased?
We would like to say “As long as it is handmade, anything goes!” However, we would like things befitting a plant store that have a “natural, cute, or exquisite feel.” We will accept a wide range of things, so don’t hesitate to consult with us.

What kind of areas will my items be displayed at? Rental fees?
Please refer to the following store map. Entering through the entrance at the right, it opens up to the rest of the store. The window area on the left-hand side of the map is entirely made of glass, giving a sense of freedom. It is perfect for plants to grow and gives us a feeling like that of walking through a park. The areas labeled with alphabetical letters on the map are areas we will be leasing out.
