ONCE UPON A TIME is a secondhand clothing store inconspicuously located in a residential area 10 minutes on foot from Yutenji Station on the Tokyu Toyoko Line. This unique shop is based on the concept of secondhand clothing coexisting with plants and these plants are actually available for purchase inside.
The interior features distinctly visible placement of merchandise in spacious displays with the background of undressed concrete walls. Another alluring point of this shop is the plant receptacles which are designed to match the store's atmosphere to exhibit the style of the plants as best as possible.
This unique shop is a place for secondhand clothing and plants to coexist. Stop by and see this place for yourself.
