Always on the hunt for a bargain find, my friend Julia took me to a cool little junk shop. There were lots of great things to look at. Like these lovely ladies for instance. I didn't realise at the time how the prim little lady on the right is looking very disparagingly at the saucy one on the left, who is showing off her bloomers with no shame. And look at her in the background, looking on all concerned, or perhaps she is secretly wanting to show us her bloomers too?

They have such rosy cheeks and clear complexions. Is it all that blushing, or do they use calmoderm?

Here is someone else with great skin, and a very strong and beautiful face. I couldn't make out if it was male or female?

A face to proud of, not one to keep hidden behind a curtain. Of which there were many, and I wanted to buy them all (mainly for Little Purl One to make lots of lovely things with because she is so clever)

There were some cute things, and some not so cute things! Who would want a dead mongoose chewing on a snake? And what is the other poor creature above that? Boo and hiss!

With so much to tempt, Julia had to keep a close eye on me. She was most definitely the hostess with the mostest (not to mention her shiny golden shoes). Thanks again for a great time Julia!!

But the piece de resistance, in the eyes of Pod of course, I found lurking in a spooky dark corner......

His name apparently is Daniel (a crazy and lovely South London sounding Japanese girl Ichina told me that all medical 'dummies' are called Daniel or Sue). Here he is, in all his glory, looking a little too much like me (in the face only mind you!). Unfortunately I didn't take a photo of his female counterpart Sue, who had the most impressive bosom for an anatomical dummy. I wish I had bought him now. He would look great in my clinic! (don't worry, my interest is purely professional!)

Well, there you have it. A peep into a Japanese junk shop.......

Oh I just love the expressions on those dolls faces. It's just like walking into the staff room at work - well, except people don't usually flash their bloomers at me. But I live in hope!!!

I hear all sorts about skeletons and cadavers from my son. But I didnt' know they were always called Daniel or Sue. That's my new fact for the day then.

Wonderful photos as always.

How funny! A Japanese junk shop! I know someone who would have been SO excited by all that vintage fabric, amazing.

That picture of the mongoose - you politely cropped that picture so we didn't get an eyeful of that dolls 'front bottom' (as my children call it).

I love the other dolls, especially the look the one at the back is giving to the two at the front.

Of course Pod, here I was expecting 'views' of Tokyo (you know, the typical ones) but with your wonderful eye, you've opened mine. Thanks

PS: Thanks for the birthday greetings. My birthday is actually tomorrow (Friday the 13th this year - this side of the world anyway! - hang on, my brain is aching - do you get a friday 13th or a Thursday 13th or Saturday 13th - I could work it out but I've just got out of bed and the cofee hasn't kicked in yet) - shall I go now? I think I've filled up too much space in this comment box. (only joking, how confusing it would be if dates and days were different over there - people would turn up at airports to meet friends and rellies a day late or a day early, think of the confusion!)

Wow - I wish I could have rummaged through all those fabrics - they looked wonderful.

RW - ok i see why you call yourself that now....but don't let that put you off, i love a good ramble! yes we have the same days, just that i am in the future, which is weird. aren't the dolls funny? there faces are perfect. i think, knowing the japanese, they were set up that way on purpose. great expressions. i realise that my view of tokyo is very pod-like. there are more to come. i hope you don't get bored.

RoMo - hello again! thanks for coming. i could have gone mad in that shop alone. if you love shopping, tokyo is phenomenal! you can't beat a good 70s curtain hey? especially when watching tales of the unexpected!

I like the dolls. Oooh. I'd quite like to have a rummage round those bits 'n' bobs too. What is that rat thing though? I said *what* was that RAT thing then? Ooh, bizarre feral thing that you are, come out of there!!!!

I wonder how it got there.

I love the plane pic as well. Brilliant!
