You'll notice the zero dollar sale price and I'm sharing this to tell you that I posted this bowl for sale in March of 2019 and it finally sold for $40 in July of 2020. But I couldn't find it! We've purged the inventory room since then and it's so crowded back there that either way, I could not honor this sale so I had to refund the buyer. The truth is, if it takes over a year to sell a $40 item, it really should have just been donated in the first place.

Post World War Two, anything from the Japanese culture was embraced by Americans as we wanted to get to know the peoples we were previously at war with. Since the 1980's, the older generation has moved on and younger folks are less interested. A robe like this probably cost a small fortune when it was made as the fabric is hand-decorated!

This vintage decoration sat on my processing shelf for several months before I posted it for sale. Initially I thought it would only bring maybe $25 but since it was something from the Mid Century Modern style everyone loves these days, I did some research and it turned out to be worth a bit more than I thought

Old Christmas decorations have a strong audience but most of them aren't too valuable. I compiled this lot from two different house hunts and to be honest, the sale price was barely worth the effort to pack and ship them to the buyer but I'm glad they found a good home as sometimes that is the main goal.
