I forgot to add these little tidbits in my last post. I ended up with two new kimono over the weekend. One…oddly enough I found at my local thrift shop. It’s a nice blue wool men’s piece in pretty amazing condition. At $7 I couldn’t say no. I also picked up a very interesting piece in the dealers room on Sunday. A greyish-brown Homongi with nekoyanagi or pussy willow on it. In 8 years I’ve never seen this motif on a kimono. It’s in really god condition as well and the silk feels so lush. I paid a little more than I wanted to but in the end I’m really very happy with it. It is however, a pain in the behind to photograph.
