Alas, this is not mine, but a good friend whom joined me today. This is an amazing tiki and some may recognize this as a San Fransico TV tiki, formerly from TV Washington DC. Yes, all of these tikis have a pedigree. I will post my tiki pole (heh heh)and tiki after I clean and place them in their place of honor!

Those two helpful ladies mentioned in a previous post were Kiara and Michelle, later a couple more reinforcments showed up, but yes, A Big Thank You to Kiara and Michelle. You were spread thin, but were gracious and attentive.

Thank you again!

PTD

Anywhere from $5.00 for a set of salt and pepper shakers to $10,000.00 for a twenty foot outrigger. Not cheap, but not unreasonable. Think of it as an opportunity to own a piece of history. Chances to buy stuff like this do not come along that often, if ever!

Holy moly! That WAS a warehouse full! Some of the posts looked pretty authentic! What were those going for? And were they selling any complete colored frosted glass float lamps?

I don't think PTD's pal's Marquesan ever HAD a shlong. Looks like he was carved mitout. Still a classic.

I didn't price out the big tikis, simply because I have no room for one, but I did pick up a few nice things, and may go back tomorrow for more (I saw some menehune bowls to match the one I got from Holden). Here's what I got:
S&P set: $5
Helmut shell (that's what she wrote on the receipt) bowl: $20
4 mini Mai Tai glasses: $2 each
and a pale ocean blue frosted float with hole for light, approx 16" diameter: $60

Here's a pic of all but the float, which is still in the car because I didn't want to go back out in the rain to get it from the trunk.


and here's a pic of the mini mai tai glasses with a regular-sized one for comparison

It was an amazing sale! We had the very best time. The two ladies that were working the sale were the best! They obviously loved everything as much or more then the TC'ers.

We don't have any pictures to post because they are shipping everything back down to Santa Monica for us. We bought a super cool tiki from the Emeryville Trader Vics, a medium glass float, four menehune bowls and a ceramic abalone dish. It was incredible to be surrounded by so much beautiful history. We were surprised since before the sale there were so many negative posts. For us it felt like one of those once in a lifetime experiences.
