Tokyo American Club Spring Market

Connections has more than 40 good reasons to head to the Club on April 16.
Whether you’re looking to give a room a spring makeover, pick up a gift with a difference or you just want to spoil yourself, you’ll find plenty to enchant at the Spring Market.
This one-day shopping extravaganza boasts dozens of purveyors of home interior goods, handicrafts, artwork, jewelry, clothes and gourmet delights.
Carine Lantignac is the owner of Mapponica, map-inspired artworks that combine traditional Japanese patterns and washi paper.
“I was so fond of aerial views and the stories of people I would meet on flights [when I was a flight attendant] that I created a unique type of map that allows people to connect with the places they cherish,” Lantignac says.
Petra Tanaka and Mila Burkart of KimonoMaedchen will bring a selection of clothing and accessories made from vintage kimono fabric, while sweet tooths are in for a treat when they stop by Rose Hudson’s stall of exquisite, hand-painted bonbons.
There will even be a chance to bid for a handwoven work of art at a live auction of carpets and rugs from Eastern Carpets in Singapore.
From 9:30am to 11am, Members enjoy an early shopping experience, fueled by complimentary drinks and snacks, with the chance to browse the carpets and rugs to go under the hammer from 1:30pm at the auction.
