Greetings

  • With Internet auctions and flea market mobile applications, the concept of “Reuse” has become a part of our everyday life. However, it is also true that many people still do not feel like selling and buying things that are no longer in-use. At present, the total assets of branded goods and precious metals that are sleeping in the closets of Japanese homes may total around tens of trillion yen. In other words, Japanese homes have a sleeping gold-mine that could move the Japanese economy.
  • How can we enlighten more people about the value and the beauty of “Reuse”? We everyday grapple with that challenge. It has been 10 years since we had started our small stores in Osaka, Namba. Our efforts included, stores that make customers to drop by, creating relaxing space like a salon for our customer, training a concierge that builds a trusted relationship with a customer, new services empowered by IT technology, opening our own auction in order to constantly deliver the value of our item, and so forth. To deeply plant our philosophy of “Connecting values and memories of things” in the world, we have been creating a flat and flexible business.
  • And soon, we may challenge to create new business that does not fall in the “Reuse” industry. From now on, together with our employees, we shall aim at providing a business with a new value to our entire stakeholders.
