I bought an octopus teapot in Old Town San Diego. I have collected a lot of teacups, but not any teapots, well, except for the glass teapot that I actually use. An octopus teapot I was not able to resist.
This was from a Japanese antiques shop in Ocean Beach. I think it may have been the only item under $200 in the whole store. (It was $12. As it was in the same case with expensive Edo period kokeshi, I was afraid it was $1200, but fortunately there was a decimal point and I was able to buy it.) Maybe I should start collecting kokeshi, not that I really need another thing to collect.
