Cry Baby

No need to look to friends for sympathy anymore. When you need it, a little rubber cry baby does all the crying for you…and with you. $10 SOLD

We would put something delicious in this bowl so that it disappears fast and we can get back to looking at that swirl.

This bowl is 6″ in diameter, made by Michael Andersen & Sons of Bornholm, Denmark who are known for their mid-century stoneware. The bottom of the bowl is marked with their impressed triple fish stamp. It’s very usable, but when it’s not in action, we’d probably leave it out, pretending it’s being used so we could look at all the pretty, hand-painted blues. $43 SOLD

Can anyone relate to this? Non-fiction accounts of men who had contact with extra terrestrials.

This collectible 1957 first edition of They Rode In Spaceships is a gem, if only for it’s illustrations:

Super cool gift for the believer in your life. $25

This guy has been loved.

This stuffed vinyl elephant is 8″ high and just an excellent green color. No, you may not want to hand it to your 2-year old because he’s gotten a little bit too delicate for such hands (and mouths), though a 12-year could definitely handle him. But this is really a grown-up toy. He belongs on display, but not on too high a shelf because he’s quite nice to hold. We could even see him on a coffee table instead of the ever-popular vase of flowers (but flowers are wonderful too). We love things like this elephant because he’s big enough to be an unusually perfect way to add the splash of color you need to balance a room. $50 No longer for sale, because he’s now the store mascot.

You might want to take out every page and frame them…

…but you probably shouldn’t because they go together so beautifully and the cover is phenomenal. This copy of Willie Mouse by Alta Taylor, illustrated by Ernest Aris is from approximately 1915. It has some scribbles and writing in it and the wear of a well-loved children’s book- Certainly more charming for the character and sense of history they provide.

The colors are so vibrant. Really stunning. $50 SOLD

Perfect box – Makes all random stuff seem special.

This inlaid box looks very handmade with really beautiful and intricate details.

But when you open it, it has this terrific indigo felt inside with a little white fabric border that are hand stitched together. Slightly imperfect in the best kind of way. We don’t know what it was made for. Game pieces perhaps? Marbles? It seems a little small for dominoes but we could be wrong. You should really just put whatever you want in here, don’t let us tell you what belongs in it. It’s such a unique case that even pocket change may become more valuable once placed in it. $40

Beautiful illustrations of African Americans from 1902.

Yes, we are judging this by it’s cover because it’s a really cool one. It makes us want to look inside where it gets even better. The book is Napoleon Jackson by Ruth McEnery Stuart, 1902, and yes, we love illustrations, covers, interiors and typography as much as the words on the page. Very rare to find a book with African American subjects like this one from that era.

Isn’t this nice? There are several more like it inside. $10
