Seen on Willy Street: These antique items outside a store across the street from St Vincent de Paul's.

I want this Buddha so bad.

He's perched atop a display case inside Lazy Jane's cafe. If I could come up with a way of distracting every one of the dozen or so staff on duty behind the counter, I'd slip him under my coat and walk nonchalantly out the door with him, but I'm not that clever. Nor that amoral.

I've never seen a carved Buddha that captures the happiness on this guy's face. I'd put him on a pedestal in our front room just to make sure I could see the expression on his face every day.

Seen at an auction: A Santa for everyone.

I especially like the Santa with the binoculars and the fatigue jacket. What's he supposed to be, an artillery spotter?

Seen at an auction today: A young boy's dream. Or even the dream of a middle-aged man who spends too much time playing with toys.

I would have been happy with either one of these, and could have taken one home if only there might have been a couple c-notes in my wallet. In my dreams.

Although I did manage to take home a souvenir.
