Greetings... had a few finds this weekend out around the West Virginia/Maryland border...

Three mugs: orchids with jewel eyes, then 2 Luau Hut ones: orange hula girl (says Luau Hut on the back) and a green one too. The Luau Hut was located in Silver Spring, MD:


This funky bamboo lamp (with flowers in the large base parts):


A swell tri-tiki statue (presumably resin), $1:


This terrific shirt (too small for me, but it will see other use) from a delightful company whose name reflects an amazing upcoming event:


Here's a pair of detail shots from the shirt:

and one more:


One last thing... a weird sorta monkeypod-looking pineapple (the lid comes off, big enough inside for swizzles) with some Hawaii artwork:


Mahalo!

Nice finds Kate. Is the thing in the center an ice bucket? Looks like the one on the right is maybe a Westwood.

Thanks Ted.

The thing in the center is a set of three stacking containers. The two smaller ones fit inside the largest. They are pictured on page 162 of Tiki Quest.

I'm pretty sure that the mug on the right is Westwood.

Here are a couple of finds that I made over lunch today. I am curious about the Salt and Pepper Shakers. They were manufactured by Tiki Farm, but what year? The sticker reads: "Made in Mexico," rather than the current "Hecho..." The pictures are a good representation of their true color and glazing. The other item is a Tapa Cloth tie. Its 100% cotton and was produced through the Kanaka Tie Company in Hawaii. It smells old but its age is quite uncertain. The colors are also fairly true. I've got to figure out how I can incorporate it effectively into my wardrobe though.......I'm serious!

Found this mask today..... 25kr (3$)!! in a fleemarket.
Im very excited about this one, as it is very rare to make any kind of tiki finds in Sweden.
I have no clues to were it might be from but it appares it have been hanging outdoors for a long time as it got some nice moss on the surfice. The wood is light-weight, might be balsa.
Anyone seen the design before, ore knows anything about were it might bee from, let me know, tanx!

Nice find Maku! If I had to guess, I guess I couldn't. It resembles a Balinese mask that I have though.

Short version: I found a Tiki Bob San Francisco for $2.

Long version: Yesterday I went to get a haircut and had an appointment for 4:00. I showed up a little early and found a sign that said my barber would be back at 4:00 so I take a short walk to the thriftstore down the street. I've never found much of anything at this store but I keep going back as they have a decent book section.

I start going through the isles of carved wooded owls and notice a good luck cat from Hong Kong, neat but not my thing. It turns out that the little wooden cat as good luck however because a little to the left of it was a Tiki Bob (the one with the text on the back surrounded by a lei). I can't make out the price but it looks like $1.91. The lady at the register said it was supposed to be $1.99 and part of the second 9 must have rubbed off and she asked me if it was OK to charge me the extra 8 cents.

Of course it was and it is now sitting in my cubicle guarding my red swingline stapler. No chips or cracks, crazing is present along with some glaze skipping but it has the original Japan sticker on the bottom. I did end up giving my barber an extra $3 tip for helping me find it.

Spork, Awesome score! There is Tiki still found in the wild! You just boosted hope.

With all of the new collectors/Dealers now catching on, it is seldom heard of. You bring hope to those just starting out or those of us who are just plain addicts and look just to get the "fix" of the hunt.

I would hope that either you have no Tikiphiles that work with you, and that your cleaning crew is highly ethical to keep a Bob at the workplace. Where I work, I would be shocked if a Leilani were still on my desk if I left it overnight.

The good stuff is out there, you just need to be patient. That mug took me 3 years to find but now it is mine so I'm quite pleased. No one at my work (coworkers or cleaning crew) has a problem with taking my mugs, they have all been informed of the curse of the tiki that would await them.

I did have a Steve Crane Tounge Tiki in my cube for a couple months and it was safe so I think Bob should be fine.

My friends Lee & Howard went to Maui about a month ago and they brought me back these two wooden tikis:



The one on the right was made in China and claims to be a "money tiki", the other one is by a local carver named Ifa.
