When it's OOAK

A term we constantly use in the antiques business is OOAK - One of a Kind.  I love that concept!  Imagine having a little piece of history that
  • no one else on earth has
  • there cannot possibly be another one
  • someone's personal thought and creation is resting in your hand
  • you have a direct connection to another person through this unique object!
Pretty amazing thoughts!  In honor of the OOAK's in the world, here are a couple of fun examples of what I mean!

One of my all time favorite beaded bags - powerful & unique design.

Update:  This little toy was just featured in an Etsy Treasury on a laundry day theme!  How fun!
