What Do You Collect?

A few years ago I found a whatnot with the marking Holt Howard. It just so happens that my maiden name is Holt so I set out to learn a little more about Holt Howard and along the way started collecting a few pieces. Holt Howard, or HH as you will often find, was an importer of whatnots that were made Japan in the 1950s and 1960s and sold in dimestores (predecessor to the dollar store). The pixie collectibles are popular but I found some Christmas items that I enjoy. Here is a photo of one of my holiday wares.
