Great find Keith! Craigslist really is a great place to find tiki treasures sometimes. Did you get it for a decent price? It's hard to tell from the pic if it's older or newer?

Great find! It is newer, came from Tikimaster in Hawaii. That size retails now for about $800.

I think I got a good price. I did see the exact same carving on the TikiMaster site for $790 + shipping (estimated at another $100). This one was just down the highway. I got it for just over half the retail price and didn't have to pay shipping. This bad boy is heavy.

I also got 4 really neat lamps. I'll have to see how many I need for my garage build. I still have to get pics of these but my phone pics didn't turn out well at all.

Last weekend we picked up some barstools and a peacock chair.

I can't wait to get started on my build - I got a lot of great ideas at Tiki Kon.

I'm having so much fun!

Kate! Please relate: HOW and WHERE, and for how much did you find those Cannibal Carvings! They look original, and in excellent condition! Please show more photos. Do they have lathe marks underneath? The find of a century.

Wow, BigBro! I bought these two because I thought they were cool, not realizing what they were. I paid $5.00 for the Surf God & $10.00 for the War God. I was only entertaining the thought of painting the War God because I didn't know what it was. I thought because it was painted gold that it must have been a homemade item. Do you think that is the original finish? It's actually like a gold over brown. As always, thanks for your input & continuing to further my Tiki education.




Ooooh, I didn't realize it was GOLD. Yeah, I think that's original. Here are my thoughts on the Golden Tiki concept:

Spent a little over $5 in 2 stores and got this stuff.

Smaller glass 2 face goblet, Trader Vic's coconut, handled mug is not vintage :



The cold paint on the Nugget and Sneaky Tiki are in bad shape but I believe in "NO tiki left behind"



I always buy these name mugs from Hawaii when I find them and then regift them to people in gift baskets.

Great finds for everyone lately.

In my sculpture class we are currently working on found art sculptures. When I entered the studio today the first thing I noticed sitting amongst a pile of junk was a M.H. Strikow decanter. I then realized It was sitting in someones material pile about to be sacrificed for "art" I rushed over to the guy who's table it was at and informed him on what he had. I told him I would buy it off of him. He said if he didn't use it for his project he would "think about it" All during class I was on edge, I couldn't stop staring at it. I felt horrible thinking that I might witness such a prime artifact of mid century poly pop be destroyed in my midst. At the end of class as he was packing up I told him to think my offer over, and he told me to just take it home. I must have some good karma!

I found these 2 relief carved wood fish today that measure appx 2 foot by 1 foot in size. I know they aren't "tiki" but they fit the tropical vibe anyways.

I just have to find a place to hang them.




Also for fun I picked up this bag o' menehuenes for $0.79. After seeing them all hanging there just like that I knew that they needed to be rescued. I think I will leave them in the bag though..lol.

I've never seen a white haired Menehune before, I wonder if that's a Christmas special.

Yeah he is a Christmas guy.

And coco Joe thanks. The thrift also had these 2 foot tall relief carved palm trees one with a man and one with a woman in the same style. Too bad they had been broken and then badly repaired.

Wait a minute, did I miss something here? I usually post my finds as they happen, never thought to wait until I was done. Thanks for sharing your collection. Pass the M&M's, especially the green ones!
