Cruising around the web today and I stumbled across this really neat looking porcelain music box in the shape of a frog.  It’s a steal at around $40.

Porcelain Frog Music Box

This item is available only from The Bradford Exchange.  Check out the description…

One of nature’s smallest creatures is a symbol of big dreams come true, thanks to the rich tradition of fairy tales. A frog’s ability to transform and endearing appearance gives it a special place in our hearts. Now you can treasure this inspiring green creature with the first-ever Animoges frog Heirloom Porcelain® music box, exclusively from The Bradford Exchange.

Next time you’re poking around Grandpa’s barn for antiques, try looking on the roof instead. Antique weather vanes are some of the hottest collectibles on the market. But you don’t need a weather vane to know which way the wind is blowing in the collectibles market these days. Baseball bats, psychedelic posters and even Transformers toys are all hot items.

Can’t afford a Babe Ruth game bat? Consider stashing away a few items that are popular today, in hopes that they’ll be hot in 2026.
