No markings on the Tiki, thought it was a Coco Joes.
But it hasback detail...






It's an oldie...That one was made by Holo Ka Hana. It's tag says: " From the Volcanoes of Hawaii- Ki'i Hoohehe'e: Temple image of Lava. Good luck-Long Life."

Another company that made one almost identical was South Sea Sales. Those have a mark on the back of the base that says "Made in hawaii". The belly is a little skinnier on the South seas version as well.
Big Island sands also made that one. Theirs were a little larger and made from colored sands.

Buzzy Out!

I found this Maori carved plaque online, the carver had a good idea but the styling is a bit off on this.
Almost looks as if it was supposed to be a take on the "comedy & tragedy" motif.
What I mean by being off a bit is that there's an arm coming out of the mouth of the top head and another arm coming out of the eye of the lower head, just kind of throws the flow off. But it will look good in the collection with my other stuff, so I'm happy.

I made a few finds today while looking at Garage Sales.

These Coco Joes




I also picked up this cowrie shell necklace. The Lady said her Father had been in the South Pacific in WW II and brought this back.
I noticed there was a cross on it and initially assumed it was part of the necklace. But once I got it home realized another necklace had just gotten tangled up with the cowrie necklace.

I'm mostly a lurker here, and I'm not a rabid collector; some Enchanted Tiki Room and Trader Sam's stuff, some Trader Vic's, a Tiki Bob. But I've mentioned to my garage sailing friends to keep an eye out. Yesterday, while we were out of town, my phone buzzed with this picture via SMS:



Text: "Saw some tiki mugs at a garage sale. Maybe 30. Interested? What's your max price?"
Me: (checking out the photo, noticing a few familiar faces from lurking here.) "Um... $XX" (where XX is a two digit number)
Text: "Got 'em for $YY" (where YY is less than XX)
Me: \o/

Was able to unpack them today:



My friend who spotted the mugs is a rabid organizer - her online handle is "Librarian Avenger". So I pointed her at Ooga-Mooga and she spent the next hour identifying them. I think Humuhumu has a new fan.

Tiki Bob's Peanut Lined Face OMC Mug x2
Paul Marshall Products Peanut Tiki Mug x2
Magic Sands Bug Eyed Moai Bristol Green x2
Chan's Waikiki Flipper Tiki Mug Green x2
Daga Eyeless Ku Mug
Harvey's Lake Tahoe Sneaky Tiki Green Script x2
Orchids of Hawaii R-91 x2
Maui Lu Daga Warrior Mug x3
Trader Dick's OMC Moai Medium x2
Bosko Tiki Mug #2
Harvey's Lake Tahoe Bucket Mug
Bill Lee's Bamboo Chopsticks Logo Three Face Bucket Mug x2
Islander Maori Face Bucket Green
Maui Lu Luau Coconut Mug
(and 2 green bamboo S&P shakers)

Unidentified: the green Bosko on the far right, and the beige pair on the left in front of the "peanut" gang.

So, yes, instant mug collection. My friend is dutifully enthankened.

Nice little haul

If you mean the 2 brown ones in the first photo in front of the peanut men those are Leilanis
If you mean the 2 beige ones in the 2nd photo in front of the lined peanut guys those are Kon-tikis

Glad you got to post on this thread-its always more fun than lurking!

Aloha Joshua,
Great score!!! That's Bosko Mug #1 according to his archives.

Scroll down to near the bottom of the page.

PS. I'll gladly offer you $XY for the two Bosko mugs.

Sweet! Thanks folks - I was expecting them to be ID'd in short order, and wasn't disappointed.
