New Years Treasures

The treasure hunting scene has been gradually picking up steam as many op shops work through their holiday donation inundation and people are back to garage saling.
Today I dropped into one of my local stores and found more than a few pretties.
A Kokeshi doll for my sister's collection.

A Uranium glass plate with frosted floral pattern. I shall have to find my large uv light to give this plate justice. My little keychain device isn't large enough to capture the surface area.

A set of 3 wall sparrows, made in Japan, with red diamonte eyes. The largest has the point of the tail missing and another has the tip taped in place. Just the one intact. Lucky I was able to get a better price than they had on them, which was a bit silly I thought. How much would you pay for these in this condition?

  1. I think a few chips don't matter if you are not a purist. You still get the "look". Some lucky finds indeed!!


Go on, say something, you know you want to, and I've made it easy, no annoying guess the crazy word verification. You don't even need to log in unless you want to. There will be a 10 day time limit before I moderate comments, that seems to keep most spambots away. So don't panic if it doesn't appear immediately.
