My friends and I have coined a politer term for when you take something home from someone else's curb: TRASHPORTATION.

Now if you'll excuse me, it's garbage day - Im off to take photos of old mattresses...

I snagged these lights for $9...
They are the PMP mug type, but were listed as "totem pole"

I have seen those lights before...they are very cute! They are the same design of the famous PMP (Paul Marsall) tiki mug!

Yeah, I already have the Mugs, and the Salt and Pepper shakers, and the Ketchup and Mustard bottles, but I have been looking for a vintage light set for years. So this rounds out the Paul Marshal collection. But I thought it was funny that they called them "Totem poles lights"

Trashportation-not bad. Just got done doing some rounds at goodwill, salvation army, and Michael's craft store. Found a tiki bottle opener(50 cent), 3 hawaiian records(75 cent), 2 tiki buttons,2 set of stickers and 2magnets(Michael's-for $3). And that's about it no major founds for today but a good day...

For those of you interested in the classic Leilani style tiki, I found an Ebay auction for a large pitcher version! Take a look at it:

BBCode Quote End -->

TikiManiac,
Yes, I've seen this pitcher before. Believe it or not, its a BRAND NEW reproduction of the Tiki Leilani styled mugs. Yup, this repro pitcher has matching repro Tiki Leilani mugs that look exactly like it. I saw them a few months ago at The Great Indoors (http://www.thegreatindoors.com). For those that hate the vintage Tiki Leilani mug, you'll absolutely LOATHE these!

My mother in law actually just picked these beauties up for me at a garage sale:


That's right, I said "mother in law!" I didn't even know she had a little Tiki in her. I was so surprised by the gifts that I didn't want to be rude & ask how much she paid, but I doubt she'd fork out very much.

OK, so I received the 50's polynesian basement plans book from Ebay... the book is nice and big, and does not dissapoint in size and quality, but the 'polynesianness' of the polynesian home bar seems a bit lacking. However it is still a cultural treasure and I will post the relevant chapter for all to see in a day or 2 - I've been pretty busy at work since I got back so my extracurricular antics have to take a slight back burner position...

Doctor Z and I were blessed with Tiki Manna this morning at the garage sales. Look at all this stuff we found:

Doctor Z got these two cool Tiki Table Torches, one still unopened in its original box. He also got the ceramic tiki-statue on the right, a Hawaii souvenir plate, and a little plastic scene of a hut and palm trees that looks like it was attached to something else. I got a baby-ku wooden tiki table lighter, and an unopened 1960s cake-decorating kit with very detailed plastic hula girls and island boys strumming ukeleles. Doctor Z also got the blocky hand-carved tiki which we believe to be one of Gecko's kindergarten projects.

Here's a closeup of the Tiki Table Torches and the lighter. The label on the box says that the Table Torches were purchased at the Marina Liquor Mart in Marina Del Rey.

Here's a closeup of Doctor Z's ceramic Tiki Statuette. The label says "Morro Bay". Has anyone ever seen one of these, or know where exactly it came from? There was some other nautical items with Morro Bay stickers as well, so maybe they were purchased in a gift shop there.

I also purchased all of these little Bauer flower pots for two dollars. (I know Kukuinut appreciates these.) The garage sale where we purchase the majority of these items was amazing. Doctor Z and I would accumulate large piles of vintage merchandise on the lawn and one of the old guys running the sale would come over and price it five-to-ten dollars a pile. We were in heaven.


I grabbed this mint-condition pole lamp with three fiberglass shades, (one yellow, one orange, one green), for five dollars. It had never been removed from its original 1950s box and still had the Sears tag for $9.98 attached.

Doctor Z also picked up a cognac bottle shaped like a glass float and these giant straws which we will use for our scorpion bowls. The cognac bottle should convert fairly easily to a lighted float, because it already has an opening to insert a light.

All in all, a splendid day of tiki hunting. I wish every Saturday was like this.

Sabu

A couple of hunters after my own heart!
That is quite a bounty of goodies you scored!

I also scored one of those Courvoisier cognac bottles with the rope just this week myself. (ironic!)
If you take the paper labels off & put some led lights in the spout, you have a fine authentic looking light up fishing float ideed! I wasnt sure if the rope was original because I've never seen one before, but now I know better!
I have one of those ceramic tiki statue dudes too, there are 3 or 4 different types to look for also. I'm sure you will find them too! I like that one because it is quite similar to the Jonny Sens big teeth mug. (that I want & dont have yet)
LOVE the pole lamp, what a great score!
Really dig the tiki table torches too!
Thanks for sharing!

I like the ceramic tiki; he looks like Herman Munster.

I must say I am green with jealousy over everyone's tiki scores! However I am pleased to report that the other day at the thrift store I found an old vinyl record called "Hawaiian Favorites" by Akoni Lani and his Islanders. The cover has a nice wahini photo, very retro. Here in Penna, tiki and Hawaiian stuff is super rare.

I should have been doing college work but i went a wander and checked out the charity stores on the far side of town.
After checking five stores the best tiki i found was I could see a small set of glass fish floats through the a chink in the window of a fotunetellers shop, which has started selling brick-a-brac.
I was heading for home when i notice that this charity store that is usually shut was open, I entered and a man came in behind me and my tiki-sense tingled (quick it said find the tiki before that man dose, he's a tiki central member from america on a day trip to steal your tiki's) like a flash i ran over a body blocked the plates and cups shelf, nothing, I leapt to household goods section, bah still nothing, the record section was crowded with shoppers I was almost doubting my tiki hunting abilities, when i spotted the cheeky face of a "Butlin's Beachcomber Bar Souvineer Plate".
I got it for 3.50, I had to walk away from the store calmly before whooping.

Nothing hardcore vintage tiki, but I finally got 3 out of 5 of Shag's second series tiki mugs, just yesterday. I'm a big fan of Shag's artwork, so I'm happy that I got them. And not at eBay's hyperinflated prices. I think I bought them at the original retail price of $125/ea. Can someone verify?
