Happy New Year!



I was able to get away on a little hunting trip over the holidays and found this fabulous old robotic mannequin. She moved into my shop on New Years Day, fit right into the haunting atmosphere and has become a big hit already. From around the 1930's-40's, plug her in and she comes alive, moving her arms back and forth over the tarot cards while her head turns both ways. She looks like the Bionic Woman inside, full of old machine works and gears. She must have been a fortune teller back in the Good Old Days, I have never seen one like this before. She lives at my shop now so come visit often and ask for a demonstration.

More new arrivals from my recent trip are posted here and on the website.
Thanks for all your support and kind comments in 2008 and have a Wonderful New Year!
