Thogchags, Tsha tshas, Netsuke, or ???... What's your favorite fetish?

Thogchags just edged out netsuke as mine. I appreciate things you can't find on Ebay.

I like those Japanese sandals that are basically a plank with two shorter planks attached perpendicularly to the bottom. Geta, I think they're called.

Hmmm. I think I have the wrong definition of fetish in mind. How about "I miss St. Christopher medals"?

Google search for "hello kitty netsuke" gets exactly one result, a broken link to a hello kitty netsuke strap on ebay. Anybody looking to make their forst million, I'd say opportunity is knocking.

Prince Takamado of Japan, who died a couple weeks ago while playing squash, was a collector of netsuke.

Pink, I have a lethal pair of size 13 geta made by one of my students years ago. They are amazing, she even custom grooved the topside to fit my feet.

I'm quite fond of small, smooth stones from (spiritually/relationship-er-fully) important places. For instance, I currently have one from San Diego sitting on my dresser, picked up to bring good luck to my friend who just moved there.

Great netsukes! I have one with a buddha on one face and a demon on the other which I quite like.

Actually, I find it interesting that the vinyl geta sandals are considered more appropriate for formal occasions than the wooden ones.

Never heard of thogchags before. Cool link!

nice links pekar wood.

My own favorite fetish? Why, that would have to be some good juju, of course.
