Interesting Finds In!

Here are some interesting finds I got today...

I found this lovely vintage Mojer "Innocense" plaque lithograph art print. I have a larger lithograph version already on my wall, but it's starting to fade. I thought it would be good to get this wood plaque version. Just in case. No, tag, with some age wear, but still lovely. I will put this one in storage for now.

Next, I found some cute Finger Puppets, I've already added to my shop. Just adorable and with their original box too. I had to fix the mouse and the red dog. One was missing his nose and the other one eye. Still lovely. I also finally caved and bought this cute Pink and blue pastel satin Momoko jacket for Lilith. It reminds me of Andie's/Molly R.'s character's jacket in "Pretty in Pink". Yes, I realize hers was green, but that's what this one reminded me of. Can't wait to try it on Lilith!! More on the jacket later...

From Yahoo Japan, I picked up this lovely blue dotted fabric with cute Rushton plushies on it. I will be adding this fabric to my shop soon too. A bit different, it doesn't have the baby chick in this version. On Etsy, I found this lovely vintage wood with paper nesting blocks made in Japan. Just look at their bright colors and all the cute images on each side. The wood is super thin, and just light weight. I am surprised that a child played with these. They feel very delicate now and might break. A cute addition to my collection.

Next, I was commissioned by a fellow collector to find this cutie, a vintage rubber mermaid doll made in Hong Kong. This is similar to the one's I found here and exactly here! To my surprise, while doing my usual searches, I did! I was a bit in shock. But so happy that I was able to bid and wing this one for her! Yay! She is now on her way to her forever home... I truly enjoy finding things for others, I do! Last, are these lovely vintage ceramic ballerina legs bookends, made in Taiwan. When, they showed up on my feed, I was smitten! I couldn't wait to get them! Sadly, when they arrived from the UK, one was in pieces!! Ugh! The box was crushed, and I could hear rattling inside. I was hoping it didn't, but you know the drill. Darn it!! I immediately took pics and sent them to the seller. Then, I decided, that I could probably fix it. So, I started to get to work on it. After a few hours, I was able to salvage most of it and put it together... See last photo after reading.

The one that is not broken is on the right, in the photo above. Still, the one that is broken, is not too bad to look at. I just love them, they remind me of burlesque style or Neoclassical style like Marie Antoinette. Have you ever seen anything like this? I haven't! Haha...

Happy Friday all!

Thank you for looking! ~ ggsdolls

Update: Alltherightblings, gave me a full refund, even though it wasn't her fault. She had packed the bookends in double bubble wrap. I still love them and told her I am willing to pay her half. She has great communication with me and I truly appreciate her for that.
