Denise Fenwick, Styled in Japan

Styled in Japan: parasols, vintage and antiques from Japan

Daughter of a dressmaker and fruit blocker, I was born and raised in the small country town, Loxton, South Australia. For the past twenty years I have lived and worked as an English teacher in Kansai prefecture, Japan.  Most weekends you will find me searching for treasures at flea markets and shrine sales.  On longer holidays, I indulge my passion for world travel.

At an age when many people are dreaming of retirement, I decided to start a small business. I invite you to accompany me on my journey of discovery as I share with you my photographs, stories and history of the treasures I find at markets: indigo dyed aizome fabrics, silks, traditional clothing, kimono handbags, fans, dolls, religious artefacts, wooden kashigata sweets moulds, the quirky and unusual treasures that catch my eye.

Please feel free to write a comment, ask questions or share your own stories of treasures discovered.

  1. Glad you liked my blog post. I find your blog quite unusual. Interestingly, last night I was in the art gallery of a friend who was trained to paint in China and does that style and my first exchange student–from Thailand–is coming to visit me for a month in a couple of weeks. Thanks for the blog link.
