Dragons and Buttons!

I would not like to tangle with this guy but I have to admit he's amazing. This is an art form of the finest order--the kind of thing you find hanging in a museum.
And he's on a kimono. Again, museum material!
We now switch from dragons from the Far East to the all American art form--the button. Just feel your hand moving through this treasure. I've done it and the feeling is delicious. There are some amazing buttons here--just a little patience and you will find the button you've always wanted!
Our cupboard over the counter has a real potpourri on display: dolls and penguins; a miniature three drawer chest; a charming Japanese figure; cookie jars and more!
Our June Dollar Rack and isn't it amazing. Look at that vest in the front--you either are going to love it or hate it. As my Mother-In-Law used to say, that's why there are apples and oranges.

Fabric and Cupboards to Browse Through!

I'm particularly drawn to the flower girl in the center of this fabric. She looks like she's dying to come out and explore the shop. All of these fabrics are half price, by the way, and this is just a small sample of what's waiting for you on the table in the middle room. All of those with a sewing machine that's dying to get some exercise, take note!
You haven't had a chance to explore our cupboards for awhile. Remember, click on the cupboard once and then when you spot something that you have to see, click on that and it will pop out like magic! I just tried it, and one click brings the image popping out. No more clicking twice--and I liked that! Even from here--without expanding my view--I like that plate all the way to the right on the bottom shelf.
How about that elephant on the top shelf or the matching ducks who look bereft, separated from each other on the second shelf from the top? Remember, click only once--it's all that's allowed, darn it. You're certain to find things I'm not seeing!
Some interesting things here; how about that glass pitcher? Or that strange threesome standing together in the middle on the next to bottom shelf? Also, take a look at that lovely vase third shelf from the top which sits right next to our mystery object for the day. What is that?
This is one of the best Dollar Racks I've seen and I've seen a lot. It's wonderful, with a lot of enticing colors!
