Thrifty Thursday: Maneki-neko

on March 24, 2016

This past weekend I needed to get out of dodge for a bit, so a friend and I went drove down to the state border where there are outlet malls, antique stores, and a whole lotta nothing. We spent a good chunk of time in one of the antique stores. Imagine my joy when, near the end of our puttering around, I saw this maneki-neko!

I’m a bank, too!

I’ve long looked for a maneki-neko and never found one *on my own* that I’ve liked. A dear friend found an awesome pair that I love; I keep one in my living room and one at work. Yet I’ve never found one–on my own–that really beckoned to me (pun intended) until this past weekend. The price was right, so I brought him home and now he watches over me and the furkids while we sleep.

Hopefully he’ll bring me some good luck, too! šŸ™‚

    OMG, I have the same Maneki-neko and I have the two little ones I won on your blog in front of it. It’s a bank, too, but it’s still empty. The only difference is that mine has its left paw raised. The right paw raised invites money and good fortune so may it bring you lots of good it.

    Cool find! I love how long his paw appears to be compared to his body.
