buy vintage licca or sekiguchi? 2007/8/7 13:52
Tokyo 23-ku
hello,

anyone know of shops that sell vintage Licca dolls (ie, circa 1970s and 80s), or vintage Sekiguchi dolls (such as the original Sekiguchi Love dolls of the '70s). I'll be in Tokyo, Yokohama, and Kyoto, but could travel elsewhere too. Thanks!

doll,
vintage dolls are mostly traded at online auctioning sites, doll shows and antique markets. If you're interested in shows/markets, let me know your schedule. I can post the list of them.

As for new Licca dolls, there's a shop, called, "Licca Club 67" in the basement floor of Hakuhinkan in Ginza.

Also, "Licca Castle" in Iwaki offers a factory tour for visitors.
