I didn't really go hunting last week, so here's mostly this week's stuff:


Stabby Tahitian tiki thing:



(I'm pretty sure it's a)Soloman Islands guy:


HIP guy:


Hollywood Tropics matchbook:


Two Hawaiian dolls, palm tree, and a sand base in a bag


Ceramic Tiki lamp:

I looked for info on TC about it and couldn't find another tiki like this one on a lamp yet. The lamp fixtures are not connected to the tiki. The tiki's just glued on to the base with a light pole behind it holding up the shade. He has a sticker on his head that says "My name is Tiki" Anyone else got any any info on it, other than the GoTiki repros?

@ BayParkBuzzy: Last two weeks of stuff? TWO WEEKS ?!?! It would take me about seven or eight years to acquire that quantity [and quality] of Tiki items in Central Louisiana. I keep thinking I should just fly out to SF or somewhere in California for a weekend. Just hook up with a TCer who would be willing to take me around with them for an afternoon. It would probably be amusing, and maybe embarrassing. I've got a lot of pent-up desire - for Tiki, I mean.



I'm right on the edge of the Pacific, so this stuff just washes up on the beaches here all the time! I'm sure if I was a Civil War enthusiast, I'd be jealous of what you guys have out there because we don't have much Civil War stuff here. Lot's of tiki, though. And Mexican marble chess pieces that look like tikis. If you could only come out for a weekend, then come on out for Tiki Oasis. More tiki stuff there than you'll ever want or need.If I told you about all the cool old stuff I've personally sold there over the years, I think we'd both cry...

Buzzy Out!

He's a Duncan mold. Trader Tom has made some of him recently. Also, your finds kill me. So glad they're going to a good home though.

Buzzy, here is my (granted: a little subjective) take on that Tiki :

So as soon as I complained about not being able to find much here, I walked through the little flea market and found this Tepco bowl for $20.
And then I remembered this little thrift 12 miles away in the next town; only open on weekends. Set of five Tikis in different glazes; home pottery kit, bottoms have pencil descriptions of the glaze names [I guess.] For $15. I am grateful and humbled.

You guys have great stuff in the US!

Here's a pic of what I've picked up at carboot sales / charity shops in the UK in the last few months:



L to r: 200ml Pussers flask, shell, brown Churchill pot, coconut mug, speckled white Churchill pot, mini mug by Lord Nelson , mini ship pencil sharpener (yes, pencil sharpener!), green Churchill pot

Here's the bottom of one of the pots & the captain mini mug



Ive not heard of Churchill Pottery or Lord Nelson Pottery - they're obviously produced by English firms & these are quite different from their normal ranges. Any ideas to the age / scarcity?

I had five of the Churchhill pottery plant pot holders, in brown, not seen the other colours (I think I gave a couple away in Mug Swaps on here - as additional items)

Funny thing is I live in San Diego had to go all the way to Fort Wayne In. for a thrift store find worth posting.

I found this pineapple decanter. It is labeled American Legion 63rd National Convention 1981 Honolulu, HI.

It appears to be in good shape except for being empty. Has anyone else come across one of these?

Ooga mooga has the ave price of $8.45.

I guess I didn't get ripped off at 5 bucks.









Awwwwwwe FREAK OUT!

overall it's just about 36" x 48" -- the print is actually a canvas painting.
There's some obvious errors in the take off from Shags piece.
"Cooktail Lounge" is a huge one.
An old guy who works with an importer here in town knows of my affection for Tiki related art, we've discussed Shag before, surprised me with this.
Now I need to wrestle with my wife for some real estate space for displaying it.

The fruits of our antiquing/thrifting labors in Eastern Wisconsin this week.

L-R: Set of 6 Carioca Zombie glasses from the 1940s (labels are pretty roached, but still mostly intact), Sheraton Royal Waikoloa Petroglyph mug, bottle of Knockin' Heads Red wine with 2 moai on the label, Chiki Tiki Clearwater Beach mug, Ronrico Rum glass (probably 1950s), 1/2 of an Otagiri Kon-Tiki salt-n-pepper shaker set.

A T, how did you manage to understand what I was asking? No one has ever spelled dimensions like that. My mac is down and I 've been struggling with an "Itouch" The rum didn't help either. Btw, if your wife wins I'll be glad to store it for you.
Cheers

Hi guys

Found this today:



On the bottom it says Arte4.

I looked on Ooga Mooga & its not on there but it seems to be a combination of these 2 mugs:

http://www.ooga-mooga.com/cgi-bin/all/mug.cgi?mode=view&mug_id=3662
http://www.ooga-mooga.com/cgi-bin/all/mug.cgi?mode=view&mug_id=3866

Any ideas as to more info?

It's an original Spanish mug from the 70s or 80s. Arte4 was the original manufacturer of the Spanish Tiki mugs.
