I use UPS as well, but that fountain seems a bit big for Brown! Keep up the good work. Looks like you might be pretty busy making fountains for a while!

It went for $975.00 not too bad. I was watching and it really took off the last few seconds.

I think someone got a great deal. I hope you find it worth it to make more.

wow! That was cool.
I will carve more. Actually I started carving one yesterday. That I sold before this one. Plus another one for someone else that I have not started yet. I got a lot of emails for smaller more affordable ones so no worries Laney I am working on it. Did I mention I start working six 10 hour days next week for my real job. Man I hate real jobs. Oh well thanks again everyone for your compliments and support. Time to celebrate while I still got a life.

Those old Witco fountains turn up in the strangest places...

Here's a postcard I just acquired showing one in front of the B-HIVE GROCERY, DRUG & GIFT STORE, Sanibel Island, Florida. Evidently they had a Tiki Hut.



I have almost as many postcards of forgotton tiki locations in Florida as I do of California. I'll have to make a post of some of the more obscure ones someday.

Sabu,
I'd love to see whatever Florida cards you have. I've been collecting Florida cards for a few years now and am working on a personal web site on Florida tiki. I'm just getting started, but plan to post more info. on each location named in the text with cards and/or personal photos I've taken.

PS: I bid late on the Witco fountain card and missed it. Congrats on that one!

Oh Gawd, not another tiki-phile marooned by child rearing. The same thing happened to Muggler last year, and he's barely come up for air. When we make a trip down your way, I promise to smuggle some rum to you in a load of daipers.
