After a long dry spell I finally found something at the Goodwill worthy of sharing... even though it is beyond tiki I thought it was really cool and well worth the $5.00 I paid for it...



...a cool set of liquor bottle cocktail picks that...



...sit on top of the wooden bar when not in use!

I wondered if I should share this other find because it is wayyyyy beyond tiki but I can't contain myself! I went browsing at a used record store and came across this...



A copy of the 1973 Wailers debut album "Catch A Fire" in the limited edition Zippo cover!



Check it out!! I ended up paying $40.00 for it but I've been hoping to come across one for nearly 20 years! The vinyl is absolutely flawless though it won't be seeing any time on my turntable!

I bought this wicker dress form at the Long Beach flea market last Sunday. I'll use it to display jewelry.

One good lamp deserves another:



20 bucks at a garage sale this weekend. The folks were willing to bargain downwards but I couldn't pay any less in good conscience.

oh man! I am drooling over the tow lamps! tikifish and sweet daddy tiki what excellent finds at great prices! My husbands swears he is going to send me to a 12 step program to rid me of the lamp collecting bug. Right now you can't open a closet without a lamp falling out on you. I like to be able to switch lamps in and out of my decor as I feel the need for a slightly different look. Hubby thought he'd be done with me hauling in lamps one I started collecting tiki stuff. Hee hee, if only he knew.....

THE best month for lamp shopping! My 1 dollar VFW garage sale find is nothing compared to a Z lamp but I am thrilled with my find...

I picked this modern coffee maker over the weekend while hunting tiki (which I had no luck). Sadly my coffee maker didn't come with the lid to replace the filter with when it's finnished brewing, but I have improvised. My wahine has names it HAL. I must admit, HAL makes a mean cup of joe.




I also found this auction on ebay if anyone wants one for their own. NOT MY AUCTION.

I found this set of TV trays on a small town googie hunt last week.

Woohoo! Been looking for this record for awhile.



Who is the real Sweet Daddy Siki? Is he that mean looking chap front-cover left, or that gentle fellow to the right togged in country gear with guitar?

The answer is both. Sweet Daddy Siki, the highly skilled wrestler who employs a lethal, reverse chin-lock he calls the Beatnik Hangman Hold is also an exemplary performer of Country Music.

Wrestler Siki says the most outrageous things: "When I look in the mirror I see the most gorgeous physique in the universe." "Nothing in this world is a greater luxury than me." Not so Siki the Music Man . . . he just strums his guitar, smiles most disarmingly and sings.

These starkly contrasting modes of behavior work equally well. Wrestler Siki is top-rated, has wrestled extensively in the United States, Japan, the Bahamas, and Canada. Singer Siki is daily gaining gaggles of fans as news of his talent spreads.

Born in Kingston, Jamaica, W.I. Sweet Daddy moved to Los Angeles at the age of seven. There, he attended college and began wrestling and boxing at the age of fifteen. He served in the U.S. Army, and is a veteran of the Korean War.

"Sweet Daddy Siki Takes on Country Music" is Siki's first album with Arc. It represents for him the fruition of a life-long desire to entertain in a medium he loves.

We at Arc Sound think it a most exciting recording debut and know wrestler Siki, who spent enough time in New York's Greenwich Village to be billed "The Pad Lad", would agree.

For the record, though, Country Music performer Sweet Daddy Siki would rather you listened before deciding.

Dang! Totally in awe of that Sweet Daddy Siki album. That's just the crazy kind of stuff I collect.

I was blessed today at the garage sales. An old box full of dirty, grimy glassware was purchased for $2.00. When I got it home and washed it all, I had quite a set:



The shaker is in mint condition and has a nice strainer in the lid. The martini glasses are faceted and the tiny glasses have a delicate, dimpled surface. Really nice set in total. I made some martinis tonight with the shaker. The top pops on and off so smoothly. This is going to be my new favorite everyday shaker.

Sabu
