Trades, Etc…

I’m doing the happy dance today!! Earlier this week, I was DMed by two friends via IG. I checked their messages, and both wanted to trade for some cuties I had, for what they had… Long story short, one of my trades arrived to me lightening fast! I mean literally…

I was in shock. I’ve seen items get to my customers within like, one week time frame in the States, but to me, and here, on a little island so far away from the States! Unheard of?!  But, sure enough, I went up to the village to check our mail box, thinking to myself, there was just letter mail in the box… Instead, I got two boxes… Yay me!

All the way from Columbus, Ohio, these cuties were traded for my white deer with the vase! I have been trying to find either a tall set or short set of these closed-eyed cat cuties for a few months now. Finally, a pair to myself! Yay! Thank you, dear EllenR. on IG, not her real name, of course. But, I’d rather keep some really good vintage trade friends to myself, Hehe.

They are gorgeous, pearl-like in pastel pink. These are salt & pepper shakers, but many of my fellow collectors got ga-ga for these, just like I do! The tall one’s are even more sought after. Since I can only keep a small collection, these two are just puuur-fect! Ha. They will be added to my collection of figurines… Those eyes! Lushes eyelashes too, so 1970s. My other trade I will share when it arrives…

Late last week, I was doing my usual searches through etsy, and found these cuties!!  Hui-shan had these cuties listed, but you couldn’t see them, unless you click on show more! So, I did. She had this cute red bear bank, Yup, just like my red bunny! Also, a cute deer couple. I ordered both.  Sent out last week Friday, just like my items that come from Japan, it arrived to me in 7 days! Yes, please. Thank you Mr. Post Man/Woman!!

Sadly, the female deer didn’t survive the quick travel. I will have to glue her together… Oh well, Hui-shan was kind enough to give me a partial refund. I will work on this gal and the boy deer also. I have an upcycle idea for them… More later.

This cutie is my fave of all! He will be friends with my Bunny. First, I will have to work on him. He was sold with some issues, he has cracked his ear somehow, there are areas that need re-flocking, and maybe a bit of paint on his eye… Poor guy.  He’s also missing his plug. Lucky, I got some awhile back. I will take some pics of his finished look. Can’t wait to start on him too!

Yesterday, I got another Pearl-like deer, the small one you see. I was hoping they’d match, but the small one is a bit more heavy in feel, as compared to the large one. Along with one being a bit more yellowed in tone.  I may decide to keep them or not…
