  1. Great finds indeed! Such good condition. Is your Japanese Bibi tea set postwar 1950s or 1960s?

    1. Not sure about the tea set's age or origin, but I would assume 40's - 60's. I will have to do some research!


  2. Gosh, such great finds! That straw bag might just be my favorite, though those flowers are pretty amazing, as well. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one that snaps up old photo albums, looks like you picked up a gem-- look at those lovely ladies (and in trousers no less!).

  3. great finds again! the wicker/straw purse is absolutely lovely!
