the maker lucky bag


Valued at over $140, the maker’s lucky bag is full of surprises, containing beautiful, quality goods at an irresistible steal!

You’ll unwrap a range of items from past and present makers, Japanese brands, and other surprises, such as stationery, homewares and more. The contents of every bag are a complete lucky dip – you can’t choose what you’ll get, but the gamble is part of the excitement.

Keep your favourite things for yourself, tuck away some treats for loved ones, or make an event of it with a friend – you can open them together and compare (or swap)

Please note that items added your cart are not reserved while you browse : please proceed to checkout to avoid disappointment!

The quality and minimum value of your goodies is guaranteed, but the contents of every lucky bag are different and will vary from any bags pictured – the surprise is half the enjoyment!
We do not offer exchange or return on any lucky bag items. Discount codes may not be used for the lucky bag. Not for wholesale please.

the concept

Have you ever been to Japan at the start of a new year? If so, you might have seen people lining up outside their favourite stores to get their hands on a fukubukuro – a lucky bag.

Filled with mystery items from the store, which would normally cost more than twice the price, these ridiculously popular bags combine the chance to snap up premium stock with the excitement of not knowing what’s inside.

In Japan, the craze for fukubukuro is an annual pop cultural phenomenon -a little like our boxing day sales but cuter… There are bags for makeup brands, toy brands, streetwear, snacks, pet-themed bags, even high cost brands like apple give shoppers a chance to snap up a mysterious – but hugely reduced- selection of stock.

It’s amazing value, it’s great fun, and this year the maker has a lucky bag of its own.
