I was wondering if anyone knew where I can get Muji (maybe online?) other than the MoMA store, as their selection is pretty pathetic and overpriced.

It's tack, their stores are on almost every London High Street, you can buy their stuff online at their UK website, but I don't know if they ship to the US from there.
I guess the place is okay for pencils and paperclips, albeit expensive, but what are you planning to buy from there?

Their notebooks are the only notebooks I'll do my writing on and I no longer have any friends...(in Japan).

Most of it looks like it's Made In China.

I think the products here are more compelling:

Yes, Muji products are made in China and it shows. I suppose it allows them to "capitalize on sourcing economies" or some such bilge.

There is another shop selling Chinese-made crud called "Three Minute's Happiness" -- one of my favorite bits of unintended irony.

The products you posted are in a different league entirely.

i have three cheap plain t-shirts from muji, 2 white and a dark brown, that i am very happy with. their homewares seem very over-priced though. i always figured their stationary was fairly gimmicky.

MOMA will be greatly expanding their Muji selection in the very near future.
BTW, I've been to the Muji store in Milan, and I came away with nothing. Maybe in Japan it's dirt cheap, but in Europe/US the quality no longer warrants the prices.
