With its calm and lilting music and its open door in warmer weather, East Wind invites you to enter and explore its fascinating wares. As its name implies, the store carries items from Japan, Korea and China. Large or small, ornamental or functional, economically priced or extravagant: East Wind offers a little of everything. Treasures are hidden around every corner: small translucent stones inscribed with Chinese characters, kimonos and obis, candles, fragrant soaps, vases, and delicate Asian paper. You'll also find a variety of greeting cards for every imaginable occasion. East Wind also specializes in Japanese tableware and porcelain lamps. In fact, if you see a vase you like, they'll be happy to transform it into a lamp for you. Just pick out a shade from their vast selection.
Books, Books and More Books
Whatever the topic, as long as it deals with the Far East, you'll probably find it in East Wind's book collection. Learn how to use origami techniques to create paper shapes, brush up on your spoken and written Chinese or read about the philosophy behind the practice of feng shui. All this and more awaits you on the bookshelves just inside the door. Better still, you can start applying your knowledge right away. The origami paper, calligraphy pens and ink, and feng shui accessories are all available in store.
So, drop into East Wind as you're strolling through the Glebe. Between the fact that the store was set up according to feng shui principles and all the beautiful things to admire inside, you'll probably leave more relaxed (with an item or two).
