Ummm...actually, I have. I must admit there have been times in the past where I've spent more than I wanted to for something I really wanted to add to my collection. I'm willing to bet that I'm not the only one who has done this either. We are human, after all...

I guess WANT & WILLING are two different things. I sometimes just get sick of getting outbid, and another 10-20 bucks, or whatever I have to spend just to get the damn thing is worth it.

Just when one thinks the Ebay prices are insane, INSANE!...a nice little "bargain":

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3203668379&category=35713]Aku Aku Mug (the good one)

Sorry, no "buy now" bargains like that in the midnite tiki mug spectacivestorama, but some good crap nonetheless.

Someone had to have typed their bids in wrong? Living in New Orleans I am getting up extra early this weekend to hit the garage sales. I figure with one Tiki Bob I could really up my collection and I only have collected five mugs thus far.

A MAJOR congrats to you! If you notice, all the insane prices are the same two guys outbidding each other. These guys must have a real competitive streak- too a fault!! WOW!

Well, the auction is doing "ok", really thought people would be excited about the Kahiki Idol necklace, and the Kahiki Lighter has a pretty reasonable reserve still not met, hint: it is lower than $50. Actually, it's $45. I have never seen one before and thought, "No one wants it at $45 I still like it"...otherwise I HATE reserves.

Plus, the Luau Hut has only the one bid!

Bah ha ha!

Midnight, A tiki charm just went for approximately $32 and it had the original display card. There is excitement out there.

Yep, I posted too soon. The idol has already received a couple of bids. Mine is without the cardboard display pice, but my listing has neat typeface on the pic...and I have an entertaining write-up. So, that's worth something.

I've heard Barry Williams was interested in my Tiki necklace.

OK, so maybe I overpaid for Midnite's Kahiki necklace, but I have a soft spot for the Kahiki & I missed the last one that was up!!! But be assured it's going to a good home & will be well cared for - I know it's one of the very few items going for "low" (it's all relative!!) price in your Groundhog Day auction.

Waiting for the day the Kahiki returns.......
