Amid the racks of kimono, most priced at $10, are several rare items like this yogi:
This is also a great place to find affordable tansu.
Sorry, blurry pic... I had my eye on this one because of its massive size. I could probably fit all of my kimono stuff in it! This one was around $3100, and I saw another nice one that was only $1400.
There was a huge stack of kimono design sheets that would look lovely as framed art. There were also bins full of obi weaving samples.
This bolt of fabric was sooo gorgeous, but I couldn't figure out what it was. At first I thought maybe an obi bolt, but it is so soft. The entire thing is very fine embroidery.
Racks of kimono. Unfortunately I did not find any kimono this time that suited me.
There were a few giant banners. These are banners that get flown on Kodomo no Hi. They striked my interest as I visited the sale the day before Kodomo no Hi!
A mikoshi shrine! This is something I never thought I would find for sale! Another strange item I saw was a giant wooden statue of a Japanese demon, as tall as the ceiling, but I was unable to get a picture of it as it was hidden behind boxes.
Here is what I got from the Kyoto Art & Antique sale:
Very shiny gold foil zouri embossed with rangiku. They look like solid gold, they are so shiny!
