- In case you were wondering what MUJI is
- The exterior on a dreary and rainy Friday morning
- We're lovin' the bright red accents on the exterior facade
- The ground floor is about 80% clothing and 20% household items
- There are plenty of goods to stock up on for the upcoming (and current) cold months
- Thankfully, the MUJI store has significantly less mannequins as the UNIQLO store, and MUJI's don't creepily rotate
- The ground floor also has luggage and bags
- Bags and sweaters
- Knitted gloves and lady loungewear
- If you're currently on the hunt for a jacket, MUJI has plenty of options for you
- Sweaters too!
- These are adorable and we want to wear them to night games at AT&T Park
- This section of the ground floor has every knickknack you could possibly need to live a more organized (or cluttered if you go on a shopping spree) life
- We didn't even know you needed this many options for clothing hangers
- Notepads and thousands of individually sold pens
- Bathroom stuff for the minimalist
- There's office organizing stuff too
- A variety of clocks
- We're particularly fond of the center one
- MUJI from above!
- Cool owl thing you can buy and then assemble
- This wall partition spans two stories and is made entirely of MUJI products
- Upstairs features home goods and furniture
- Kind of really loving the backdrop for the cash register area
- Giant ottoman or oddly shaped daybed? You decide!
- MUJI is great for people who like to put things in boxes
- A variety of flatware and tabletop items
- Modular furniture and bedding
- IKEA Expedit anyone?
- One of MUJI's bedframes
- Kitchen goodies
- Chopsticks galore
- We're especially loving these wooden bowls
- Lots and lots of bedding options, mostly plaids and solids
- A MUJI bedframe fitted with MUJI bedding
- More bathroom stuff
