Just wanted to take a moment and express our gratitude to Mieko, Ookoo Lady, Erik the Red, Bora Boris, Kate's Family and everyone else that was kind enough to help out with the daunting task of liquidating the remainder of Kate's collection.
It was truly a bittersweet affair--there were so many AMAZING things still available for an absolute steal, yet every single item brought with it thoughts of her. Especially moving was seeing things that struck a personal chord...Tiki Magazines still in their original shipping envelopes with her name on them and the only full set of prints I ever did of the drinks in Sippin' Safari--that she actually took the care and time to not only request, but have framed.
After the sadness, however, came the true joy of knowing that the things that were so special to her would continue to be special to others that really appreciate them.
Marie and I are absolutely honored to now have in our collection some of Kate's prized finds, and we will think of her every time we enjoy them.
Thanks again to everyone involved and may the memories of Kate continue to resound with strength!!!

i never met Kate, but after going to the sale i looked her up and was saddened i never got the opportunity to meet her. It's great what you guys have done for her. and i did get some awesome pieces! i got Jonpaul's Pearl Diver's Punch! i know there was another one of his photo's i wanted, but i didnt have much money that day. Hopefully i can make it to the next event!
