I'm so happy.

I've wanted August Holland's Pearl of Wisdom ever since TC made me aware of it. I was returning a business call on my cell while checking the local Goodwill. I rounded the corner of an aisle and thought "this is the time I find that print." There is was, in darn near perfect condition. The only problem was masking my delight and staying calm on the phone.
It has a real treat for a documentation junkie like me: the label on the back. I've had a really good month for such things:

The original price was $14.99. Would anyone know when this print was offered by Sears?

From the first picture, the maiden mug is from the "Tiki Club" in Thibodaux, LA. It has a sticker on the back that I have not seen before:





Cool find. Never seen anything else from that place other than the matchbook on page 50 of the BOT. The sticker makes it seem like a late manifestation of Tiki.
(The Moai on the matchbook is like the generic, still available swizzle sticks.)

Same thrift store, different day. Felt something staring at me. Entitled "Tahitian Beauty" by JH Lynch. Now she stares at me all the time. Kinda creepy, but well worth the $15...

[/quote]

What is interesting about this is that I have not seen this painting in America before, and I believe it is English (see the "Above the Mantlepiece" book) and has a different original title. The "Tahitian Girl" monnicker must have been for the purpose of selling it to the Polynesian pop clientele in the US in the 60s. The tree is a bark, not a palm tree, but nevertheless the girl has all the qualities of an Exotica girl.

I saw it first hanging in the authentic "Shellfish Post" sailor's bar at the port of Hamburg, and then I bought it two times (in two years) at Berlin flea markets, giving it to friends (to bulky to carry it back to LA) with the stipulation to paint the tree into a Tiki, because I like manipulated thriftstore art and it seemed to offer itself so clearly.

Last year Moritz R. succeeded splendidly, and we decided to give it to April and Stephan as a gift for the Tabou Tiki Room. It now hangs next to the bar, and they are thinking of making postcards from it. Maybe if April has some time she can post it here...

DTB Rum Barrel $1.00
Shot Glass $.50
Hawaii Ashtray $.50
Tiki Wall Plaque $3.00

These are probably Korean Totems, but, they look like Tikis.

Here is a cool photo album from some ladies trip to Hawaii in 1980.

Here's a parade down Kalakaua

Cheers!!

I was sure that the days of fifty cent mugs were long gone, but check out what I just nabbed at a funky littly sale here in Portland:

I've never seen one of these, and a search for Kahlua Hut didn't net me much. Anybody have info on the mug or the place?

Hate to see you go but I'd be greatly appreciative. It's really been dry around here...even at Trade Days in McKinney. ZILCH!!

Some finds of the last few weeks:

Trader Dick's Nugget, $2 at a small town antique store; Two-sided Leilani-style mug with a very faded cloth sticker that, as near as I can tell, reads "Florida Inn" and a clear goblet, $1 each at a junk dealer; 4" mug which, according to page 47 of Tiki Quest may have been part of a set, $.39 at Goodwill; monkey pod tiki from Hawaii, via a retro antique store; Trader Vics fog cutter glass (age unknown, how do I date this?).

Neat little boat marked "Hand Carved Meadswood, New Zealand" underneath base, $5 at local flea market.

Display spears that screw apart in the middle to allow for placement on either side of a shield without forcing the shield out from the wall. I think Orchids of Hawaii may have made these.

It is shown in Tiki Quest on page 45 and is attributed to OMC; hope that helps.

Nice finds! I found two spears that look similar to the one at the bottom at a local Sally Ann, but I don't think mine screw apart...I'll have to have a closer look!

Not the best pics but I found this strange 12 inch tiki with a sour face on one side and a sh*t eating grin on the other. It looks like it has the sense of humor of a hip original but the base has a big carved mushroom on it. Could this be the missing link from tiki to hippie?
