Introducing Museum Store Sunday


Kamibashi has been a member of the Museum Store Association since 2005, and we are delighted to be a Charter Sponsor of the first annual Museum Store Sunday (MSS) which will take place each year on the Sunday after Thanksgiving.

According to the MSS website, "On Sunday, November 26, 2017, over 550 Museum Stores... will offer relaxing, inspired shopping inside your favorite museums and cultural institutions. Museum Store Sunday offers a special shopping experience in one-of-a kind stores, showcasing broad assortments of highly curated, unique, mission-specific gifts... Shop knowing you are supporting the missions and programs of each participating museum and cultural institution."

Kamibashi is pleased to be partnering with the below museums, all of whom are having special events on MSS including something having to do with string dolls.
