Ask Bamboo Ben in a pm about where he got those at. I feel like he mentioned it somewhere in the original post about Don's being built but I can't find it.

I dont think he reads this thread all that often so pming him would make better sense.

Also Northern California doesn't have anything to find...it's all a lie. We buy it from Ebay. promise!

Good Mug deal at Cost Plus.

I was at Cost Plus in Studio City CA yesterday and I spotted these.




They were marked $3.99, but when I got to the register the gal told me they were closing these out at $1 each.
The mugs say Libbey on the bottom. They are big, heavy, and have a nice thick glaze.

For $1 each, they can go on the shelf or be used for other projects.

Been finding a lot of duplicate stuff so this is all that I am posting because it was new to me.

An Easter Island statue for $0.50. Its about 9" high by 6" wide and is made to look all mossy.

Thanks Leleliz and Paipo. Now I've got hope that there's a stash to be found somewhere!

Got this off Ebay from a seller 10 miles down the road from me. She received it from a friend in Hawaii. It is a carved Koa Ku I think. He is 15" high.

found a quon-quon ashtray



coco joes ku book ends, with tag still on back



not tiki, but a cool barrel mug with a windup musical drunk








and 2 more coco joes, both irregularly warped. the guy selling them said he used them to prop open glass jewelry cases, and them being in the sun with the weight on them caused them to bend. I guess thats why he let them go for soo cheap.

That's a good find. If you have a decent camera I think there's some writer who might like a pic of it for a book.
