I didn't notice anyone criticizing. I certainly apologize if I offended you. Check my posts, I'm a pretty positive guy. Now I'm going to leave this thread for its intended purpose.
Mahalo!

I agree with Rick...having a conversation and discussing something on here is no need for someone to go off on them . Its a forum and the main purpose for most of us is escapism and second to that is learning. Good golly.

Sorry if our multiple comments over your bust rubbed you the wrong way but I for one am glad to know more information on that particular find of mine because I had not seen very many posted here. (oh and by the way I am a girl too-but I am not sure what that means)

ANYWAYS.....far as the THEME of this thread here are a few things-

Vintage 1960s Barkcloth Hawaiian Dress - $2.50:



Really great book on Mysteries of The Ancient WOrld with a whole chapter devoted to Easter Island. GREAT read on that . Wish we had a thread of just books--anyone into that ? Here are some pics :






Got these Honolulu tourist mags from the 60s 2 weeks ago and forgot to post them. Love all the ads on fashion/food /culture of Hawaii and it has great ads for Pan Am and this one is my fav from Aloha Airlines:





Really enjoying the book---pretty fascinating stuff.

Nice score insanetikiers.The hawaiian girl is a Lego bust that looks to be in
excellent condition , I have about five in my collection.



Actually that bust is a Lefton bust. Legos tend to have those marble looking eyes I believe. Also I just found that same bust in a thrift and its even marked on the bottom "Lefton". Big Kahuna has found a few also.



I'ts not Lefton , I have identical bust with foil sticker on the bottom, I would be willing
to stake my reputation on that one Liz.Sorry to correct you but when I am right, I must speak.

Hey, Surf! I think you need a Polynesian Bust 12-step program. You're right! I found one today with the foil label intact that clearly says Lego. I thought mine said Lefton, but I guess it's kinda distorted on the felt. I wasn't sure, that's why I was pondering out loud. Unfortunately, someone got offended. I sleep with the Lego one on the right side of my pillow & the Marwal one on the left. How 'bout you?

Hmmm..mine doesn't have a foil sticker..just white writing.

Not like I REALLY care but first Bill you need a 12 step program for addiction to busts (not those busts Tipsy!) and second what the heck ever. If I am wrong and mine is a Lego instead of a Lefton do I really care? Nah. I bought mine for super cheap in A+ condition and that is all that keeps me going! Mine isn't made of ceramic though or chalkware but a heavy molded plastic so if this is the norm than I give in and Lego my Eggo !

BY the way .....I really enjoy the friendly info/fact banter about items such as these. I feel like no matter who is "right" I learn so much from everyone esp. in instances like this


Duane glad to see you found some stuff in Paris. Always good to get some international collecting in

(Big Kahuna I didnt even see that you had said something about a 12 step program ! lol..guess we think alike!)

This is reviving an older find of mine (see page 315 if interested). I couldn't find a tiki restoration thread (except for mugs) and didn't want to be so bold as to start a new one. So, Mai Tai provided some guidance on dolling up a crusty old tiki I found. Here are the before and after shots:





Basically, it's just a bath and whole bunch of teak oil. I decided against sanding it so I could preserve the detail and "vintage" look. There is speculation that this tiki used to live at one of the Trader Vic's, although there is no solid proof backing that up.


Hey surfalaia, that came out nice! Did it soak up a bunch of the teak oil? That tiki is set for life now, especially if you keep it indoors.
