Marie Kondo Launches Webshop with $275 Utensil Holder

TOKYO – Queen of decluttering Marie Kondo has made headlines over a brass utensils holder she is selling for $275 a pop on her website.

The Japanese celebrity is selling the item made at the Futagami brass foundry, renowned for its sand-casting technique, on her new online store which stocks a range of household products to “spark joy.”

Kondo, known internationally for her television show in which she shows families how to order their homes and clear them of clutter, has launched a webshop where she sells bath essentials, aromatherapy items, boxes and storage items, decorative pieces and crystals.

The star of the Netflix show Tidying Up with Marie Kondo launched the website which is stocked with 125 items and aimed at US buyers with a price range of $8 to $275.

Kondo told The Wall Street Journal that a tuning fork sold at $50 is to make a sound, typically against a glass, and to let the frequency vibrate throughout the house.

She said she sometimes makes it vibrate through her body because it cleanses her energy.

“The goal of tidying is to make room for meaningful objects, people and experiences,” Kondo says on the store’s website.

“The shop at KonMari is a collection of Marie’s favorite things and items that spark joy.”

Among the items for sale, there is a candle for $86, leather slippers for $206, a vase for $42, a lunch box for $60 and a copper knife for $180.

Kondo, who lives in Los Angeles, will travel to Tokyo in the coming days to participate on Dec. 1 in the Knocking the Third Door conference with American entrepreneur Alex Banayan.
