This is an in-stock sale known as an "extras" sale. Products sold as extras will always cost more than when purchased during the group buy phase.
Final product may vary slightly from render images. Prototypes were made to ensure color accuracy.
Please do not combine any Group Buy items with in-stock items. Any orders of this nature will be cancelled.
Products will ship approximately 1-3 days after orders have been placed.
For those ordering in Dec. 2021, orders will not start shipping until Jan. 5th 2022.
A full refund will be provided if the product has not been packaged yet. However if it has been packed up, there will be a restocking charge. That charge will be subtracted from the value of the product and the rest will be refunded to you.
If the product has been picked up by the postal service, there is nothing that can be done, and your order cannot be cancelled.

Near the Japanese city of Osaka there’s a quiet community called Matsuzuka where you’ll find a man running a takoyaki stand. This friendly gentleman prepares takoyaki, a small ball-shaped snack made with batter, pieces of octopus, and other ingredients, topped with a tangy sauce and flakes of laver and dried bonito.
He lays out heated trays filled with half-sphere indentations and pours the batter across them. As it cooks he sprinkles chopped octopus, green onions, tempura scraps, and seasoning.
Taking a metal skewer, he skillfully separates each takoyaki and flips it over, using quick, smooth motions that speak to how many thousands of times he’s done this through the years. The takoyaki turn a rich, golden brown and when they’re done he hands them to you on a paper plate with a smile that’s as warm as the tasty morsels he’s just prepared.
Delicate pink cherry blossom petals float lazily through the air, blown over the nearby fence by the cool spring breeze. Whether it’s during a moonlit twilight, a smoky scarlet sunset, a clear sunny day, during a summer festival, or even a shadowy eclipse, the takoyaki man is always there, cooking up morsels of deliciousness that satisfy the soul as much as they do the stomach.
Matsuzuka Deskmat is inspired by the community where Takoyakeys spent summers in Japan visiting his grandparents.
