Since the mini vacay, etc. mail I was expecting from Japan, took a few days longer to arrive. Come to find out it was because of the earthquake in Mexico? Yeah, not really sure either, but that was the excuse Japan Post gave. Apparently, they stopped all International mail leaving Japan, to find out the status of Mexico’s earthquake. At least that was what I understood, as I read the notice to all customers, that had shipped orders. Oh well. Just glad they did come in. So, here is what I found last week!
I won this lovely retro Eico Hanamura bag. “Haruko” is a cosmetic brand, using Eico’s anime shoujo art. I fell in love with the design. I may have it framed?
In lovely condition too. I won through Yahoo Japan. Not for sale. A Lot of two vintage kewpie colored coin banks! Also from Yahoo Japan. I will list these two cuties in the shop soon. Definitely has Rune Naito style closed eyes. Both still have its stoppers. I will list them each separately. The orange has a few more nicks in the paint then the red one. But still cute.
They are adorable together though. A lovely addition to any retro 1970s decor and they are Kewpie’s!! I was able to acquire two vintage Francine dolls via an online shop. I will list both of them in my shop soon too. I got so many good comments from fellow collectors wanting to know more or where I found her. So, I thought it would be nice to bring some in for others to enjoy her beauty!
One in red and white stripe top and pants. Mint in package, unopened. She is just adorable with her starry eyes. If you look carefully, she literally has a star drawn as irises. Made by Shiba Co. Japan. This one, I was tempted to keep. She is wearing a red dress instead and boots! Same lovely long straight hair. She also will be listed in my shop soon. I adopted these cuties from a fellow collector on IG. She had decided to sell hers and found out they were one of my ISOs!! OMG I was literally in shock when she DMed me… I immediately, bought them straight away! I’m so glad I did. They arrived safely to me, and all the way from Ohio too! They are deer shakers, but go so well with the lone large Mommy deer. The nice part is that they have magnets on their sides to keep them from getting lost. Yay!
The large Mommy deer is my favorite! A beautiful deer family. Thank you dear Keri! I love them! You made my month, Yippee! While working on these photos, I tried the Glico coffee heart caramels. Yum! I had to take a comparison photo of these two. They look like they may be from the same company? What do you think? Then, I opened the MIP Junichi N. paper doll book…
Lovely vintage paper dolls Illustrated by Junichi N. It even comes with the fold out doll house and origami paper. Now, to be brave enough to cut them out… LOL
Thank you for reading! ~ ggsdolls
