Flea Market Pharmaceuticals

Japanese pharmacy boxes or kusuribako (薬箱)are a frequent find at flea markets.  However, they are usually empty when we come across them.  I've been looking for boxes for storing thread and other sewing notions, something with more character and kinder to the environment than the typical plastic thread organizer.  This box with its cool tiger and eagle motif caught my eye.

And it came with a bonus supply of medicaments that could come in handy in an emergency.

I don't think you need to be able to read Japanese to figure out what this one is for.

Ahhhh...that feels good!

This is apparently good for exorcising demons.

And this will alleviate pain almost anywhere in the body.

But it could cause you to expire.
