Great find Kiara! I've recently scored some witco stools and a few masks that I need to photograph and post on here......but seriously, I gotta know Tiki David, where are you getting all this great witco stuff from? Your vast collection of Witco seems to be growing on a daily basis! Awesome stuff, I love the pics!

This past weekend (I don't have a pic of it right now) I picked up a BIG Conquistador's sword hanging by a metal chain off of what looks like an anchor without the two prongs. Sure looks like Witco but not a mark on it. Not really Tiki but for the price I couldn't pass it up. You would think being so close to where Witco was there would be more around here in the NW. I just don't see it - or I am not looking hard enough.

While surfing outside of Sacramento Craigslist, I found this ad in the Tahoe/Reno area for Tiki:

http://reno.craigslist.org/fur/770615084.html

A quick telephone call and a four hour round trip yielded this:











Yes, the price sticker originally said $15.00, but the owner honored her posted price of $10.00!

Posted on July 26th, imagine my surprise to find she still had it.

Great lamp psycho!

Here's the bar I acquired, just picked it up last night:






It also came with the matching shelf that hangs behind the bar, and two chairs/stools. The bar back seems to have seahorses, instead of dragons, but the same fur backing. Is this part of the same set? Or was there also a Seahorse bar?

Very cool finds everyone!!
Here's what looks to be a Witco Guitar?? Kind of looks like one but not sure. About 32" Long and has metal rods like strings mounted to it. Pretty cool looking. Quite stylized and almost looks like a fish too!



I won't be keeping this one so if anyone is interested in it drop me a PM.
Thanks! TabooDan

Thanks TikiHula,

You already know I am jealous of your fountain and you don't have to worry about the thrift stores, I hardly ever go to them, but craigslist is a different story...$10.00??? Well, if you factor in the time and gas, it was a little more, but then again, I would have still gone if the price was higher?? How much, not sure!

Tiki David is still the King of Witco though. I still lament Sactown is a cowtown and not the modern mecca of Californina. Sacramento, bring out your Witco!

Anytime you want to come by, just PM me because I am only minutes away!

Psycho Tiki D (I know I am and I'm lovin' every minute of it)!

On that note, my husband put an item up for bid on Ebay with a .99c price. Only one person bit on it and he won. When we got the envelope with the payment in it, he had put $15.00 cash in there, he wrote "Please have a cup of coffee on me, thanks for a great find". Of course my husband sent a bunch of extra stuff along with what he won and send it back to him...

Wow, those eyes look a lot like the eyes on this little wooden owl I got a few days ago. Is my owl Witco?

They are probably both by Witco although they're not the "traditional" Witco style that tiki people know and love. Someone posted a duck that looked very similar to this and Sven's response was:

"These lil' guys are Witco's attempts to join the gift item market. The mini Witcos were produced in Canada and offered as "Zoo-ettes" (lil' animals) and as "Fun-Touchables" (in conjunction with gift cards) in the 70s."

It appears that your owl may have a piece broken off of one side, it should be symmetrical like this one:
