IW Charity Auction: Featured Item #55 – Two Matsuura Aya Official H!P Photogaphs

Two Matsuura Aya Official Hello! Project Photogaphs from Ray of American Wota
North American auction, ends Apr 26th @ 9pm EDT

A set of two Matsuura Aya Official Hello! Project Photogaphs. These photos use a Hawaiian Alo Hello theme, with Ayaya posing with an Alo-Hello sign in one of them. Dimensions 6 inch by 4 inch. A great addition to your Jpop collection! This auction item available only in United States and Canada.

If you’re a long-time fan of something, this will happen inevitably: you find unexpected troves of old stuff you bought and forgot you had. This happened to me while preparing to ship out the earlier auction items, and I figured, “God is telling me to put this stuff up for auction, too.” (Well, most of it. I’m holding onto a couple of items still. God will understand.) Some of it came from when Hello! Project kept a permanent Information Village in the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center; other items came from when my family crashed the temporary Alo-Hello store during one of Morning Musume’s tours. Look at how small Haruna is in those pics! And how skinny I was! (Relatively speaking.)

I have no idea what happened with the third Ayaya pic from this series, since the old pics indicate there was a third. But these two are pretty nifty on their own, as far as I’m concerned.
