Chinese New Year: the Year of the Rabbit

“Oh my ears and whiskers, how late it’s getting!” exclaims Carroll’s rabbit in Alice and Wonderland. With the Chinese New Year celebrations almost over we want to wish everyone a happy 2011, the year of the rabbit. Traditionally, the rabbit brings the welcome promise of prosperity. The rabbit, which bears dozens of offspring at a time, is associated with fertility and fruitfulness. Hopefully this is good news for a slow economy. The rabbit promises business success, level headedness and, most excitingly, monetary abundance. One wouldn’t want to let 2011 slip by without paying homage to the rabbit. Toronto Antiques on King has a collection of eclectic rabbit objects. They are charming, decorative, and sure to bring good fortune. Check them out,

HAPPY NEW YEAR!! From all of us at Toronto Antiques on King and our happily inanimate, but prosperous, rabbits.
