I've been thinking of some of the mini-collections of things I've (intentionally or unintentionally) accumulated. I have a problem with odds & ends like these and I thought it might be nice to photograph some of them together.
I really like these embellished postcards: the background is lithographed, the animal/bear figure pasted down in fur or flocking, probably from sometime in the early 20th century. I've only found two, but I hope I come across more.
The Good Luck Bear is a souvenir from San Isabel Colorado (I found him in an old things shop). I don't know much about them. If anyone does, please chime in!
A Good Luck Bear seems like an excellent souvenir of a forest trip, even though it's a bit like he's a captive genie in that little crate of his - trapped & beholden to give you good luck.
