Usage examples of "nick-nack".

Little tables, looking and smelling like flower beds, portfolios, nick-nacks, bronzes, busts, cameos, and alabaster vases, illustrated copies of ladylike rhymes bound in silk, and, in short, all the pretty coxcomalities of the drawing-room scattered about with the same profuse and studied negligence as with us.

How many others are walking the streets, such as upholsterers, lace-makers, embroiderers, fan makers, gilders, carnage-makers, binders, engravers, and all the other producers of Parisian nick-nacks!
