Nevada City shop offers sale of unusual items

The husband and wife team travel from Japan and set up shop twice a year in Nevada City with treasures (antiques, art, statues, ceramics, etc.) that they have acquired throughout Japan, Korea, Indonesia and more.

Kodo Arts will be presenting an unusual sale of ‘yama,’ or mountains, of similar pieces within particular genres, but each different and varied, giving the viewer unique examples of that item and choices of styles within that category.

For example, there will be ‘mountains’ of Japanese antique furniture; an array of industrial lamps made with old Japanese ship instruments; old kimono stencils carved out of mulberry paper; a collection of different Kannon goddess statues, carpenter tools; old ceramic and bronze hibachis; stone jizo dieties and garden lanterns, to mention a few. Old and modern ceramic vases will add another eye-catching aesthetic touch. Plus many more.

The warehouse will be full of these items during the Kodo Arts annual spring warehouse sale starting Saturday through May 5. Open to the public just twice a year, this event promises to hold something for every taste and budget.

Come and enjoy a stroll around a Kyoto antique temple market, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily at 571 Searls Avenue in Nevada City. For more info please call 530-478-0812 or visit
