I bought a stamp with Misa's name on it, hoping that I could get a story from the shop which I can share with you guys. I think getting your own name on a stamp is a good idea so that you can stamp it on a letter or postcard( maybe it's a silly idea for you). This is one of the traditional businesses in Vietnam. It would be a pity if the craft didn't survive as this particular man started his business after his father in1990. There are two shops with the same name because they are family, the staff are very young and as the owner said to me " this is not difficult to learn and make but you need to be patient and creative." The boy in his shop is doing well even though he only just started a year ago." They also make wooden moulds for making cakes which are really popular for Chinese and Vietnamese.
His shop has been reviewed by many magazines in and out of Viet Nam, and I think this kinf of craft is popular with the Japanese because I saw many Japanese coming to his shop for their own stamps and he also has so many samples available in Japanese. I asked him about his customers and he told me more Asian people are interested than western people.
