We kind of failed miserably this past weekend but we found these cute plaster Kachinas at Goodwill on the weekend we started the “tradition”:
There were 21 to choose from and narrowing them down to my favorite 6 was kind of tough! I had a bit of a FOMO moment and for a split second, I contemplated buying all of them (no idea what I’d do with them) but spending $63 just felt like too much.
Anyway, they’re a plaster craft set made by Holly Enterprises.
One of my Kachinas has ’96 carved into the foot which makes them almost 20 years old!
I found this chart which explains which Kachina is which:

The photo below shows the Silent Warrior (without feathers), the Hochani, and the Hú:
I also have the Heheya, the Mudhead (not shown on the chart), and the Owl (without feathers):
The paint has chipped off in some places but I other than that, the Kachinas are in really good condition for their age!
I love Hú's facial expression :)
Hochani is my favorite though!
I'm trying to find a long and narrow shadow box frame for them. Maybe I'll find one on our next thrifting adventure :)
Have you been thrifting lately? What have you found?
