Surprise finds from relative's hand-me-downs

 Hello guys!

So I've received some bags of (western everyday) clothing from one of my family relatives who no longer wants/needs them. I knew said person had been in Japan more than once but I wasn't expecting anything Japanese in the two black bin bags I got to keep. Mostly the bags contained t-shirts, jeans and stuff but actually when I opened the first bag to check it contents I was surprised by what I saw in there! What I saw was something useful for my kimono needs!

Lacquered geta (?) with asanoha hanao & tenugui
Sure that they are used but still in fairly good condition. One of the shoes the one closer to the camera has some slight damage in the corners but the other one is fine. Both have in the bottoms these marks/holes of walking on stones but so far I haven't been able to avoid this from happening with my own geta either. xD I'm very happy about getting free geta because I only own one pair previously and asanoha is my favorite motif anyway, as far as more geometrical patterns are concerned.
Oh happy day! ~

That was all, bye!
