This year has welcomed an early spring to Seattle! The Cherry Blossoms are already in full bloom in most parts. I'll be holding an open house sale over the next few weeks; with discounted prices on tansu, ceramics, and more. As seen on the attachment, there will also be several (about 40) vintage kokeshi for sale, as well as papier mache folk toy roosters for the current Asain zodiac year. These, and the kokeshi, are from my family's region of Tohoku (Northeastern Japan,) and convey the folk sensibilities of rural Japan. Hope you can drop by to visit over a cup of tea, and exchange views on antiques and folk crafts.
Please feel free to forward this notice to anyone you think would also be interested. I'm building a few distribution lists, so if you happen to receive this twice, my apologies in advance. Thanks.

A web page is currently under construction at www.mingei-wasabidou.com and new inventory items will be added daily (between feedings and changings of a new baby due any day now.) in hopes of having 300-400 up in the next month Please stop in regulalry. Thanks for your support.

Best regards,
