Hey everyone! It's been really busy, since my last post and I've been updating my Etsy shop daily if I can with goodies directly from my collection. I also was able to snag a few goodies that I found online and have since listed them and they've sold. So, I just wanted to share a bit about them and more...
First, I found these vintage My Little Pony Baby fashions from the 80s that fit my Meong somewhat. A bit tight, mostly with the fashions that have hoodies. But, the dresses fit nicely and go with her so well. I love the coloring. I'm awaiting a few more MLP fashions to share next time! Next, I found two MIB Passion Dolls made in Japan. I figured I'd keep the brunette. When they arrived, I didn't realize how huge they actually were! They are about 9 inches tall. I've mostly seen small ones, but this big! Whoa, and they are nice and minty too! Their eyelashes are nice and full and no missing plugs. I've already listed the Blonde, but the other I couldn't help but keep!!
This lovely yellow bear planter was too adorable to pass up on Ebay. She has that Rushton type rubber looking face to me, and since I am selling off most of them, I figure I could keep this one as a reminder! Love her coloring too! Made by Relpo. Love her lashes too! Below, I found this lovely mint in package Putz type Christmas House ornament. I love the colors and design. Of course, I opened it up and I love the cardboard backing, it reminds me of the Candyland board game!!
This vintage Nani wind up toy cat, is just the cutest. Not working properly, but great for decor on my end table... He's mid century cute to me!! These ceramic vintage cat coin banks I won through Yahoo Japan. They were not expensive, and just needed a bit of a clean up. I was surprised, the I won. LOL I've already listed them in my Etsy shop and they sold within a few hours! Made by K and K Originals. They have cute striped hats and bows. Original stoppers too!
I've listed a few other rare goodies in my Etsy shop. Like these...
My rare ceramic animal cups. Adorable bunny, chick, lamb, and duck. So be sure to look out for them!!
The past weekend has been a blessing! Thank you so much for shopping with me and adopting many of my rare treasures. There are still more to come, so please check your notifications via Etsy often!! I sold my Fuzbear to someone who I know will love him! My precious Lapin Ficelle also sold and is headed to the mainland USA! I will list my furries too soon, I'm just trying to get more of my treasures photographed, if I don't already have it and ready for packing. Whew, never easy, I have several containers to go through yet still!! Along with the daily grind. Haha!
I do still try to snag a few goodies online, if I can. That's a habit, too hard to break... Mostly, finding dolly fashions for my Walker doll with blue eyes. I have yet to name her!! She will stay with me along with a few other treasures, I just can't part with.
Cute large Black winking cat coin bank, I've already added to my shop! He's huge! I was thinking about putting fur on him, but decided not too, because he's already adorable by himself. Still has his original rubber stopper! Below, I couldn't help but adopt a Meong/Cotton Candy puppy doll made by Sally House, a S. Korean artist on IG. Her dolls and works are so adorable! I was able to snag one via Kamino Collectibles in France. Patrick, was very accommodating and helpful, awesome service and I got her fast considering she came from Europe! I was so happy that I caught the back order! Definitely a keeper too! Now to find some fashions for her... More on her later, when that comes in!!
I also found this unopened set of foam animal picks via Yahoo Japan. I've already listed in my shop! They are so nice and minty too! Below, my walker gal, what should I name her? Maybe I'll do a pole via IG to ask your opinion! I found her this lovely mod dress, replaced the snaps and added a red satin tie. She's just the cutest and I love her so...
Looking back at my collecting journey, there are a total of 27 years of searches, finds, discoveries, and purchases, that have made this experience an amazing one. I do hope to continue... perhaps someday. It is time, that I let a new generation of kitsch lovers and collectors take over...
Why, you ask? Well, mostly for a personal one, and I will leave it at that. I will be selling off many of my beloved treasures the next few days or so. So, be sure to check my Etsy shop often. Yes, I know I've said that before and posted on this before, but as you can already see on my Facebook shop page and on Etsy, I've listed some of my personal collection, I had never planned on letting go before, and more will be listed soon!
It has been a pleasure learning, growing and meeting most of you online, who have become dear friends to me, as well. Hey, who knows, I may be back... So for now, Keep collecting, Keep restoring, and above all, be Kind to one another. - "peace out!" - Gigi/ggsdolls
Just a few last minute finds online, that I will also eventually add to my shop as well!
I've already listed this cute pup couple figurine, I got from Japan recently. I added some bows to them and I hope they get adopted. Then, I recently found a lot of goodies via CrankyCakesShop on Etsy and couldn't help but purchase these goods. Vtg. Girl toy kitchen set, mostly because of the tiny canisters! They are Glico toys, but placed in this set. I've always tried to get them as Glico, and here they were just in this toy set. Haha! The wind up bunbun, a bit scary but also cute! And some plastic bunny faces, just because, I can! Ha!
Fabric pumpkins for my decor from Etsy. Since we don't get fall leaves necessarily on Guam, might as well, make it feel like fall in the house! I also was able to snag two of these cuties from "britecoolvintage" on instagram. They are cute duck roly poly flocked dolls, for Valentine's perhaps. Made by Forsum with their original tags too. I love their eyelashes. They are quite unique. Thanks again dear, and for the cute extras! I also got a few dolly items for my Walker doll from Ebay. A gray tweed coat dress, and a bonnet. A striped coat, but sadly she doesn't fit, so I'm sure it will fit the other sleep eye doll I have in my shop. I will try to take a pic of her in it to add to her listing.
I sold my yellow bear flockie, only to find this lovely blue flocked bunny a week later!! LOL He has a minor ding on his ear, so I added a paper flower and gingham pink bow to him. I was able to find Taby her childhood dollhouse made by Takara for Sweet Nonno. Her expression above, as she took out the furnishings to inspect was priceless!! We had to throw away her first one because it had some slimey gunk on it that was probably happening to the plastic I think? Not sure, but this one didn't have that issue! Yay! Below, a much anticipated set of reproduction fawns by Motherdaughterpyrexer1 on IG. They are just amazing and so worth every penny. If you haven't already seen her share her updates on these cuties, be sure to stop by and snag a set when she is ready to sell!! I've never owned the forward facing fawn and now I do. Thank you Angela!! I love em'!
A dear friend, was able to help me get this lovely vintage Netta 1980s rubber face bear lamp from Australia. I tried to get the seller to allow me to purchase, but of course, no dice. So, instead I gave my friends addy and she helped me get this cutie. Worth it too, reminds me of the Edward Mobley bears with the yellow or blue tops and sleep eyes. Sweet! Last, I took out a sheer blue dress I had purchased for my Rushton bunny, but couldn't fit, so I tried it on my Walker gal and she fits it! Yay! Also, this 60s mod hot pink coat! I plan on keeping a small few dolls, toys, figurines maybe, or at least try too!
Be sure to stop by my Etsy shop, many of my beloved treasures will be listed the coming days, weeks, etc. or however long it takes for me to get most of it sold!!
Thank you again for the memories, and sharing my love for dolls, toys, kitsch, anime, and Japan!!! I will miss it all!!
