Yogiji was a collector.  He had large collections of swords, canes, glass and stone statues, object of art, watches, rugs, old cars, and even cowboy boots among others.  (Many) things were given to him as gifts, but he also delighted in shopping.  One of the places he enjoyed going to was Ira Seret’s shop that dealt in exotic Asian and Middle Eastern artifacts – carpets, furniture, curios.  It was a mystical place, out of a fantasy, in the heart of Santa Fe, New Mexico.  Yogiji and Ira developed a close friendship and the robes that Bibiji and he are wearing here, are presents from him.
