My Latest Trade!

Oh my goodness, I just have to showcase the trade I received today!!  Jess, a fellow collector via IG, wanted to trade for my cute furry dog. So, I agreed. She allowed me to adopt her white deer couple set. Yes, I do own the right facing deer, but to have the left! Yay.

The box arrived safely to me today, and to my very surprise, Jess even allowed me to adopt her ceramic bear! What?! Oh my gosh, I'm dreaming. You see, long story short, back in early January, she was offering her brown ceramic bear for sale or trade. I DMed her and asked her about him, she was asking me what I wanted to offer as a price. Then, later, we both just got busy with life... I asked if he sold, or was traded, she didn't say or maybe she didn't get my message on him? Not sure... Fast forward to now, she sent him along with the trade for the fawns!

 This cute bear, reminds me of those Sun Rubber squeak toy bears that are very hard to find or too expensive to buy nowadays! This little guy, has movable head, arms, and legs! Awesome!
 I added a blue ribbon on him. He does look very similar to them, and is a welcome addition to my collection. Especially since, I can't afford a Sun Rubber cutie for now. LOL

The left facing dear below. So cute. 
 Now, my white deer couple is complete. I replaced the ribbon on both and they are now on display in my cabinet.
 I will place the extra right facing deer in my shop later...
I added a ribbon to my unicorn as well. Such a cutie...

I promised to show you a video of the Sankyo Blue Dog music toy. Enjoy!

This Weeks Haul...

Here's what came in this week!

This lovely MerryBee meyercord decal letter box/Organizer. I will be adding it to my shop, if anyone is interested. Beautifully made too.

 You can even display your Shevie dolls in them!

 I found this lovely vintage Sankyo crib pull string music toy dog, in blue. He's quite mint and plays, "Brahm's Lullaby". I will try to take a video of it and post it later. When you pull on the string, it plays and the dogs eyes, move left and right.
 I've collected a few of these cute pull string music toys. I've had the strawberry, and a lemon, which I both sold. But, to find the dog in this color is awesome. I will need to add a strong canvas cord to hang him up. Since his is missing. He will be added to my collection.

 Vintage Froebel Kan board book, "Puppy Parade". Great for dogs lovers. Many cute photos of dogs, in cute situations. In great condition, with some sticker glue residue on the back of the book, that can be removed. I hope to list it later today in my shop. Along with a book I got an extra of.


 This amazing piece, a trade between two IG friends. One wanted my fur dog, and she traded with another to give me this lovely rare Unicorn planter from Japan. He's so cute, and I love his big eyes!

 These are quite rare. A lovely addition to my ceramic collection. He will be displayed on my dresser.

Last for today, my recent order with Amiami, Sanrio Characters: Ano Koro/ In Those Days... Rement set. I haven't been ordering or pre-ordering anything via Amiami or Hobby Search for some time now. So, when a fellow collector shared her IG photo of the cute cabinet from this set, I couldn't believe, that I didn't pre-order this set! LOL
 Luckily, it was still available for purchase. Whew! It will go great with my Retro Girl sets too!
 In this set, are many Sanrio items, I fell in love with back in the 80's ,when Julie's, a shop that specialized in Sanrio products from Japan, were sold. I would go with my sister weekly to see what new items came in.

Those who lived on Guam... Do you remember that shop? It was located in a complex, no longer there now, instead Nanbo's Insurance Bldg. is located there. Julie's, was then relocated to what is now Forever 21 store... Ahh the memories. Oops, back to the set! Ha.
 In the set are so many cute items, Hello Kitty, My Melody, Keroppi,  and Twin Stars too!
 The set is just the right size for my Tomy Rooms set. This is the Study Room. It comes with the desk and chair. The rest is the Ano Koro Rement. There is even a teeny tiny Twin Stars sands of time piece! Whoa! This is my new fave set now!

 I can add some of the Retro Girl Rement to create this scene of all the vintage treasures! Ceramics, toys, plush, etc.
Just a few of my favorites combined, in the photo...

Lovely Mod Figurine Found!

While doing my usual searches via ebay, I came across a very unique figurine... that caught my eye! She had a BIN feature and I immediately purchased her! She ended up being shipped back to the seller by accident, but then reshipped and still got here super fast too!

 She has gorgeous pale blonde bubble cut hairstyle, with a hunter green V-neck top and yellow mustard capris. She is in a sitting position and is about 8 inches tall. She still has the original sticker stamp on her thigh, and it reads, "AK, Grassau OB"

 Sadly, her wrist looks to have been broken and then re-glued. I brushed her hair, and she was still in nice condition, with minimal dust or cleanup. Yay! She is definitely made in Germany, and I believe similar to or made by the Cortendorf Co. I have seen similar figurines, but they go for a lot of money via Germany's site. So, it was nice to find her at a price I could afford, Stateside, whew!


 After brushing her hair, I touched up her wrist a bit, with similar matching paint. I may touch up her blouse too? Because she has some nicks in some areas. Gosh! Talk about luscious lips too!
 I decided to add two gold tone bracelets, made from "O" rings for jewelry, and a Barbie multi-colored scarf, with green, gold, and two types of purple. It suits her, don't you think?
 She is a welcome addition to my collection. I will have her displayed on my end table for now. I'd love to find more like her... Someday.

Thanks for visiting! ~ ggsdolls

Random Things...

Taby wanted to find a cell phone case, so whilst we did. I found some things for myself...

One of the places we decided to check out was Giftoria in the Agana Shopping Center. Wow, so many cute anime, and Disney items! I found this Bandai Luminary Tears Compact blind box. $6.95 a bit pricey for me. But, I figured I'd give it a try and see what I randomly get....
 10 types of cute compacts.
 I got the secret compact, Yay!

 Love the gold, pink and purples. There are two compartments to open.

 It also looks like you can mix and match the cases. A nice addition to my growing cute compact collection. Oh boy! LOL

 A much anticipated book for my Froebel Kan collection. "Fun for Baby" I have been waiting for almost a month to arrive. Geez, talk about snail mail folks. That's Media Mail for you. Not my choosing though.
 The book has so many vintage dolls! Another fave book for sure!
 I love many of the furniture pieces they've photographed with the dolls. I've seen some of them on Yahoo Japan auctions too!

 Back side of the book. This one has many cute baby dolls in it too.

We also went to the Goody Store, I picked up this Pureral Apply Gummy snack. Very tart and tastes like apples. You can see the apple bits inside it too.
 Taby opened one of her Sakura Mochi treats from Osaka for all of us to try. It was very interesting, you could feel the texture of the bean curd they used in it. An interesting flavor as well.

On the way up, we stopped by the 76 Gas Station Circle K to gas up, and there  by the counter was a "Relay for Life" fundraiser sign. Beside it, was a bevy of colorful cotton candy cups and bags of Rainbow flavored popcorn. So, I picked up one of each as my donation.
The rainbow flavored popcorn was the best. Sara liked the blueberry cotton candy. You could tell as it left her teeth and tongue all blue! LOL

I need to get some items from my collection up on my shop... just lazy these days. I will try soon!
