I received the newly released Bandai Sailormoon series capsule toy set, “Antique Jewelry Cases”. There are six in the set. I was so thrilled to see the pre-release via one of the gatcha toys I got from my Narita trip. I waited and sure enough, an announcement for this particular set was said to be […]
I recently found and won this lovely retro piece from Japan! I’ve often collected Ladymate music boxes, and there are a small few I will keep. These amazing types just draw me in, and when I do find one… I must say, it is hard to not want them all. Just like my last trinket […]
A few weeks ago, my husband was down with a cough and cold. Then, Sara got sick. More than likely from a school mate. Now, Taby. You guessed it, from the sickness of everyone else, I caught her cold. Ugh. I generally try to keep things sanitized, and clean house etc. But, I still caught […]
I received something later in the post, that made my husband say, Huh?! Quite, literally! This cute deep blue flocked cutie, I won through Yahoo Japan. Love his apron and cute face.
I recently won a Lot of shaker cuties… On ebay, I found this lot. I’ve already listed the mod green pair. I didn’t want to up-cycle them, they look amazing just as they are.

Here are some rare items I found just before my trip to Japan! This sweet baby plush, I found while doing regular searches via etsy. I love her deep blue color. She is about 10 inches tall and made in China. A very sweet face. May need some touch ups. She arrived from Belgium. She […]
Oh my goodness! Where to begin… I’ve been smitten with a fellow instagramer’s pics of her handmade cuties for the past 4 months. I knew she only sold her creations via her website or through Yahoo Japan Auctions. Sadly, she had one recently, and I didn’t win any of them. -_-; Luckily, another fellow shop […]
I was able to find some reproduction items from my searches recently… Through Instagram, I found a great website that sells reproduction vintage items. If you can’t afford or find the vintage ones, these might be a great alternative. The website called, “Fantastica”, here has a reproduced Edward Mobley squeak toy Bear. Nice bright coloring, […]
