Here’s my first set of Kokeshi dolls I got online. The price for each wasn’t bad but since it’s from Japan, the shipping was about $40 for the 5 items. So it’s like adding $8 for each item’s price. Still, it’s a better deal than buying from eBay.
There names are (from left): Omoi (Thought), Cherry Blossoms, Osanpo (a Walk), Flower, and Amayadori.
I wish Cherry Blossoms doesn’t have the silver dust. The listing picture doesn’t have it at all. Oh well. Oh well. She’s still cute though.
Gosh. My blog would probably hate me. If she could talk, she’d probably abandoned me and looked for another owner. I’ve been just so lazy lately. And my used to be blog mates are not that active any more. Plus, I have to hunt them down since they changed their websites too.
Oh well, as what the title says, I’m trying to come back to the blogosphere. Update every now and then, and of course, will visit you’all blogs and dropped by love… This time, I’m trying to rebuild internet friend connections. I made really good friends through blogging and forum before, hope I can do it now.
Anyways. I’m presenting to you’all my new found love:
I’m starting to collect. Now I have 5 mini Androids. 3 Momiji Dolls. Otis and Otto from Stolle’s Neighborhood. 4 Japan Kokeshi dolls and 2 cheap (China) Kokeshi dolls on the way. Among them all, Japanese Kokeshi dolls are the most expensive that I can afford. Among the ones I don’t think I can afford to throw money at are: The Chase on Androids which costs $40 and above for every item, and the characters at Stolle’s Neighborhood which cost $60 and up every item. ( I don’t know. The pretty Kokeshis pretty much cost a lot too, and even the rare Momiji Dolls are a little pricey. I might just need to collect items on a SLOW pace. Buy one or two items per paycheck.
Stolle’s Neighborhood: Otis and Otto
Android Mini series 02: Rupture, Bernard, Vanilla Cupcake, Racer, and Hexcode
Momiji Dolls: Silly Billy, Dancing Girl, and Giggles (All on Random Series)
Extra: Hexcode from Android. Anyone open for trade?
I’ll take and post better pictures next time.
How about you? Are you a collector? What do you collect?
