When I first started making bento I thought it would be impossible to find bento boxes in the UK.
Now I know they can be found easily and often in the most unexpected places.
Below I will make a list of where you can purchase bento boxes and tools in the UK, and please feel free to leave comments if you’ve found somewhere that sells them 🙂
