I scored it at a "private" estate sale as opposed to a professional estate sale. "Private" usually means "I can run this thing myself."

I got it cheap. I bought from the son who's mom and dad brought it back from Hawaii 50 years ago.

Most of the folks that passed that tiki I’m certain had no idea what a “treasure” you were about to score .

Did you give the guy the patented swap meet "fist bump?"

I found some more tiki stuff out there this week:


A pair of Bora Bora/Tahitian tiki slit drums:

Just over and under 3 feet tall each






Tahitian dagger knife thingy:

What are these things? I have about 10 of them now and still have no idea what they actually are.

Maori cane:

No tiki on it

12" HIP dancer with the bilingual tag



Vintage OMC Bali Hai mug lid:

It's really hard to find these without the mug!

Tiki mug party pack:



Another week of hunting starts and ends today...
Buzzy out!

Finally found some stuff. Picked up at the local Goodwill.



Left to right:

Coconut shell cup
Moai Head
Dynasty Wholesale Scorpion Bowl
Pineapple salt and pepper shakers, marked "Aloha" and "Hawaii"
Libbey Green Bamboo Mug
2 Hawaii ashtrays
Someones hand-carved tiki from a hunk of bamboo. This was the first thing I spotted and I wasn't going to pick it up, but once I found the other stuff....figgered what the heck, it's only a buck-ninty nine.

I actually purchased the scorpion bowl last week, went in this week and found the rest. Usually don't find anything here. Hoping they have a whole load of tiki in the back and they noticed what they've put out is moving, they put more out.

Went back to the Goodwill to see if there was anymore this a.m..

Kinda disappointing, this is all I found. One item tiki, one not tiki, one questionable??



Found the little brother of my larger Moai, maybe I missed him the first time. Here's a pic w/ his big brother:

This item tiki.

Benehana geisha mug. I'm sure most people hate these. Since I'm scarce on mugs at this time, I picked her up. Besides, she goes well with the item below.

This item not tiki.

Asian Parasol. Probably not tiki, however, we do use the miniature versions to dress up tiki drinks, don't we??? Maybe I can make the argument that the larger version would fit in with a tiki themed décor???

This item....maybe tiki??? Borderline tiki?? Not tiki, but acceptable based on above argument?

I thought this unused clip on tie originally purchased from the International Marketplace was pretty cool

Hey Sandra Dee,

Howlinowl,
I have both those Moai- luv em!
Benihana mugs. Dime a dozen here in SoCal.
My son sorta collects the “rarer” ones,(Samurai w/sword) Warriors, etc. Seen em from 10 cents to 10 bucks.I pick em up when I see em but first I look around and see that a fellow TC’er ain’t lookin.
My wife bought a Japanese paper umbrella and I did not want it among my treasures but it does look okay in our outdoor tiki dining area.
Hope the wind doesn’t blow it away, hee-hee.
Good luck hunting
Btw, cool stuff on the previous find -it’s all good!
