On Friday, I went to the Purple Orchid and noticed the 5os style Tiki Lounge lamp.

It had a somewhat square shaped tiki head on the left and individual letters on the right which, in a downward vertical, would spell tiki?

Is such a lamp available for purchase anywhere?

Mahalo.

It's talked about here (pix on page 2). They used to have 'em cheap at Spencer's, but I haven't seen them there in a while...

Mahalo, Doctor Z

Johnny-on-the-Spot with the great info, albeit disappointing as it appears it is sold out.

It would look so great in my living room!

Bad mojo,

thanks for the recommendation - I couldn't see this when I checked Ebay.

However, I want the actual lamp, not just the sign, after seeing the real deal at Purple Orchid.

I would love a recommendation for the lamp, as Spencer's Gifts website doesn't list it.

That auction is for the lit sign in question, formerly available from Spencer's. It is 3D, not just a flat sign.The pic shown is obviously just the packaging.

Mahalo, Bad Mojo.

BadMojo,

No one slammed me and I was the successful bidder.

I owe you and Dr. Z a Mai Tai or two.

Much thanks. (Cant wait until it arrives!)
