thelovelyandstrange's Shop Announcement

Hi & welcome to my shop of surprises and curiosities! Wee free surprise with every order. New items added periodically.


I have a long-standing obsession with tiny trinkets, old dime store treasures, and paper ephemera of all kinds. My shop is filled with unusual and beautiful toys, trinkets, and small objects. I am very selective about what is listed here. I avoid "filler" items, so my shop will come together slowly as I unearth just the right things. My hope is that the shop can succeed while remaining curated, cohesive, and special. I want to always be proud of what I sell. This space is truly a collection that reflects a little bit of me.

I love tiny things, especially those with spectacular graphics/packaging, and items that are made out of more tactile materials than plastic - paper, wood, tin, clay. I am especially drawn to 1930s - 50s trinkets and things from the Japan penny toy era.

As always, if there is anything you would like in greater quantity or have need for a custom listing, please contact me.Thanks!
