I think there is a big difference between someone who makes a living going out and finding some tiki stuff and passing it on at a reasonable mark up or to trade, and someone who goes and buys exclusive/limited items just to sell. I personally have no problems with someone making a living selling tiki stuff, I actually appreciate the fact that they spend lots of their time locating cool stuff. I do have an issue with non-tiki yahoos that go to the thrift store and find a tiki Bob for a buck and sell it on ebay for a hundred.

Dr. TikiMojo, I saw your stand at FI and talked to you enough to recognize your not an Ebay Pirate (are they the new Ebay Monkeys?). Just because your a seller, doesn't make you a pirate, that term should be reserved for those who have no affiliation with tiki and are just out pillaging.

It would be really cool if these sculptors like Muntiki and all the other artists would have some autographed mugs or other art available for some kind of raffle or contest, maybe sponsored by TikiCentral (hint hint nudge nudge).

Everyone throw in $10 to the raffle per entry, give away 5 mugs and or art pieces to random winners and donate the proceeds to some worthy charity or put it towards hiring talent/speakers for the next Hukilau.

Lots of other clubs or groups do these raffles. It's be a great way to build community and spread the wealth.

Hey I recently bought some vintage Star Wars stuff at a garage sale and sold it on ebay for like 200% markup, does this make me a non-star wars yahoo or a shrewd shopper?

if your into the subject matter, whether its tiki or star wars or whatever, and can find a deal then your a shrewd buyer. If you can make a profit more power to you. If you have no idea what something is, but think you can make a quick buck on ebay, then your a yahoo.

Don't feel bad, out of towners.

I don't even have a FI mug!

Martin,

How does a nobody like me get one? ( FI mug. not bad liver. )

Chilled with some great folks in line at Forbidden Island today. We thought we were crazy for showing up at 6:45 am, but we were quickly joined by other nutbags- nachotiki and the wonderful Thayer and Scott. After many poker games and listening to exotica on the portable turntable we all solidified a common feeling of aloha.
We were surprised that the line didn't flesh out until around 2. Everyone got their disgustingly beautiful mug and promptly ordered too many drinks afterward. The best way to spend a Sunday. Hope to see everyone else at the next one. Thanks to Martiki and staff!Pictures to follow...
