You must be good luck.

I went through about 5000 and found these.

Hang10,

Pretty good paper score! Was that at a Vegas paper show?

Here are some of my recent finds from the Arcadia paper show and the intereweb.







The Arcadia show was just around the corner from Bahooka, so I went by to pay my last respects on Sunday


Before heading over to the Tonga Hut for a Rufus!

I don't get to post here very often but thought this was worthy. I found this mosaic at an Antique store. Boy was it dirty. Windex and a toothbrush did a great job of cleaning it up. I admit that I embelished it a little. There was an awkward line at the bottom where the water met the shore so I added some crushed glass that I had left over from a DIY project.
It measures 12in x 32in.

With and without flash.

edited because I realized it's not really tiki. A couple degrees removed I guess,it's related to the Moai Mosaic. Looks like the same kit but couldn't find it in the catalog. Perhaps I'll find a Tiki to glue on there.
Sorry for the faux pas. I won't let it happen again. Please don't blast me.

Not very often I get to post in this thread, since 'Tiki; is mainly a mail order business when you are from the UK...

Here's a few items I picked up from the same Antiques centre:


A very large and heavy tome on South Sea Arts









A pair of Amber fishing floats, joined by rope - approx 6" diameter






A carved Maori warrior - approx 9" tall and highly detailed










Was very happy to get the Maori, since i had seen it before on the same sellers stall for three times the eventual price.

One side of this carving looks like something Little Lost Tiki Ken Ruzic would carve and the other side is all hieroglyphs. It's a small carving 8"x3".

Tikilongbeach, awesome find. The board depicts the Easter Island Birdman cult. The cult came into being after the ancestor worship which gave rise to the carving of the Moai. The back represents the Rongorongo writing of Easter Island which has never been successfully deciphered. Great piece, thanks for sharing it.

Thank you, that was very helpful! It was a Goodwill find and I was very happy to add it to my collection.
I'm going to read up on the Birdman cult on the Bradshaw Foundation website. Do you have any other suggestions?

Moai looking Tikis on these 2007 Vans from the 25th Anniversary of the Triple Crown of Surfing.
Haven't seen these pop up anywhere before.


Picked this up from eBay, I like the rustic style of it.


And a new piece of GECKO art, da man has layers of talent!

I hope I'm not way off base with this post-I did a "search" here on TC and found nothing about an Oceanic Arts/TikiDiablo collaboration reproducing the cobra fang mug. They used the Spurlin molds that Bob has had for years to create 100 mugs in the original green glaze and Danny made 10 (ten) in a kinda muddled green/brown mat finish. Very cool imho. I'm posting em here cuz my TikiQueen bought one of each and put them on our coffee table where I "Found" them. Hope this is not old news.
Cheers

Although the Al Harrington stuff is clearly 70s period and I don't collect that stuff much, (and the handled Tiki mug is butt-ugly), I did get one of those glasses:



Because not only is Al surrounded by four Ku's,...



...the border of the glass looks like Tahitian Tiki poles to me...



....and, as a first, our South Pacific Man sports some really stylin' Tiki bell bottoms!



Besides doing his Polynesian shows, Al also acted in Hawaii-5-0:
