I just wanted to share some of the neat things I saw this past weekend at that bazaar. There nothing that I felt I "had to have" but I did see a couple odds and ends that were interesting. I wish there was better lighting for photos, but look at these chairs. They were new but really lovely.
A vendor from Indonesia brought quite a bit of teak furniture. These benches caught my eye for their shape.
Lots of daruma dolls like this one
And my favorite, washi eggs in lots of colors
Many kokeshi dolls
Hatano pottery, which truthfully I don't know much about yet but it was fun to examine and had such lovely glazes. Most of the signs were in Japanese except for one says, "Hatano" so if you know anything about it, please share!
One of the antiques dealers had a lot of goodies. Nothing I brought home but I did admire these porcelain pillows.
The tag on this simply said, "Imperial Doll House" and was quite a nice set. It included the porcelain faced dolls.
He didn't speak any English and my Japanese is not good so I couldn't ask what the porcelain things were with the teapots. Any suggestions? I did admire the many kashigata wood molds for making sweets.
I really liked this Shisa/Shishi dog but I had nowhere to put him. I think of everything he was one of my favorites of the day.
