Antiques fair

Some of my favourite finds at an antiques fair yesterday.

My favourite find of the day, in fact, one of my favourite finds of all time, is a set of vintage Japanese nesting dolls (the largest is a Daruma). I was just about to pay for something else when this jumped out at me! I knew I could go home happy after I found this, even if I bought nothing else.

I found it on the same stall as I bought quite a few other things, including the nodding horse which was only £1. It looks like it has an Asian face - anybody know where it comes from?

The perfume spray was found on a stall where I narrowly missed out on another bargain - another lady had just picked up the little Japanese plates I'd looked at earlier - and got them for just £2 each. But I was happy when I got this instead!

My last find of the day was a box with a Japanese scene on the lid, and when the lid is opened a little figure pops up.
