Received a great package from Surf.....?? Couldn't read the entire handle. His writing is as bad as mine. There were three Kon-Tiki items...all Milan Gaunkos plus swizzles, postcards, and adv. cards. Surf..... Thanks for taking the time to look at my Ooga-Mooga wish list.

I just received my great package from Loki-Tiki:




I must say I was amazed at the treasures within. I totally wanted both of these mugs! The Book of Tiki "Reviver" mug and the OoH R-70 (which was on my Ooga-Mooga wishlist!)



I was also pleased to find the Shag CD case and the Shag coin-purse, the tiki Playing Cards, the awesome Tiki shot glass, the lei, the various Tiki Farm & Oceanic Arts swizzle sticks, and the Tonga Hut bottle opener...

Big Mahaloz to Loki-Tiki!

Leleliz received this package of awesomeness from House of Ku. Freddie here is what she wanted to tell ya:

Freddie what an awesome box! Mahalo! Mahalo! Mahalo!

Brought to you by my cat here is a group shot of the items I received:

A really cool pair of vintage wood tiki earrings (too small for my ghetto camera to record in detail), shell necklace, CoCo Joe Catalog (how many of these do you have my friend???), the Davy Jones Locker mermaid mug,a metal/brassesque tiki scuplture and the tiki carver figurine.


The mug is from Davy Jones Locker in Hawaii -- didn't have it, didn't know it existed, love it!

How funny that you included this . Did you know I had the vintage CoCo Joe's version that just so happened to be one of the few Buzzy was looking for and because of that I gave it to him at Oasis last year. Nice to have a replacement since i do love this little sculpture!



Love it all and really am pleased as punch to receive such great stuff my friend!

And i was lucky enough to received more than a boxful of goodies from Closettiki!

Between the hula guy bobber, coconut monkey bank, tourist plate, salt & pepper/tray monkey pod set, inflatable palm tree, SHAG sticker and door knob sign it had a ton of tiki kitsch which i love so much.

Glad to also be gifted not just one but 7 mugs/shots which included a Cheeseburger in Paradise mug (one that i wanted and didnt own), a moai, Warehouse barrel, 4 shots included the little handled one whose paint job I really dig.





Thank you for the overabundance of goodies and for swapping so well!

I loved my package and really appreciate it!!

Wow. I tried to hold off for a better camera, but mine is out for the count.
Dan and Wendy - wow...just WOW. A sweet letter, and #48/50 Tiki Bob napkin decanter.
I WILL post better pics, but those who aren't familiar with it, the sculpt started life somewhere around here:
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?mode=viewtopic&topic=38423&forum=18&start=165&hilite=tiki%20bob%20decanter

I'm just in awe. Now I have a place to put my dark rum.

Thanks a 1000 times you guys! I love your work! (and your house!)

Ukutiki: Glad you like the mugs. I don't have access to much in AZ so it was a nice to see you were after some Kon-Tiki items.

To my swapper: I came home from work today to find a "your package is being held at the post office - come and get it" notice. I'm super excited to get my box.....but I'm on a plane to Sydney first thing in the morning and won't be around until the end of next week! I know, poor me, right? So, I just wanted to say thank you in advance. I'm not neglecting to post photos because I'm being rude, I'm just not reasonably close to my local post office.

So thanks again, the box is here(ish), and I'll post pics and more thanks next weekend.

Glad you like your Mug Swap Box The shell lei is from the early 80's Tahiti and that brass Tiki was made by the company that bought the Coco Joe name
at the bankruptcy sale years ago. Mightbe in the catalog in simulated lava...
The tiki Carver was made by Pacific Fine Arts...Should be marked and even has a signiture on the figure...Enjoy!

Freddie Out!

Hi Tiki-Atari, I'm super happy you like the decanter. We learned how to make 6 piece molds with that design. Thank you for posting the link to my how to make it thread. I hope to see your name pop up in posts there in the future so we don't loose touch.

Hey Pikey's Dog life is strange that you have gotten us two years in a row. We must be very lucky. Dan didn't share a single thing with me. I had told him the box coming was a reward for all his hard work on my projects. He did indeed feel rewarded.


Sorry for the topless shot but you know I have to have a model for my work!

If you have a chance please tell me more about the War God Club mug we have never seen it before.

Thank you very much, Wendy

Got my package from ExquisiteCorpse!



I've wanted a Fu Manchu forever! I also don't have that version of the Trader Vic's Coconut - very cool and strange. Tons of swizzles and cool palm cards - and some shots that didn't make it into the picture.

My package arrived over the weekend... just had a chance to post pix now.

Huge Mahalos to Pittsburgh Pauly for the incredible haul!

There were lots of items from the Pittsburgh area, including an Andy Warhol teddy bear and some menus... one from Chin's and one from Moy's Cove. Also some cool Hawaii coasters and a little Coco Joe's figure.


Lots of ephemera... and I LOVE ephemera... from all over the planet! from Mai Kai stickers, napkin and brochure to flyers from trader Vic's Scottsdale and even Dubai!


A massive amount of matchbooks, including vintage Vegas venues!


A dizzying array of swizzles, including the Castaways, Hawaiian Isle, and the Kahiki! Even a TWA propeller swizzle! Cool!


And two cool mugs!
One from Tiki Lounge, Pittsburgh, PA and one from Tiki Bar at Kaanapali Beach Hotel, Maui


Mahalos Mahalos Mahalos Pittsburgh Pauly!!! I'm totally overwhelmed by all the amazing stuff!!!
