While in Daytona Beach for the Hawaiian Inn event, I found the following items in a pretty cool antique store ...

1) Pardon the blurriness - there is a neat miniature hula scene inside of this piece, which is lit by a votive candle holder suspended from the top inside the cylinder.
Green-flocked wallpaper, a glittery gold interior - I don't know if I am in a tiki bar or Liberace's living room. If you squint your eyes a bit, it even looks like a big green tiki with an pen mouth.



2. A nice, well carved, miniature tiki set, about 15 inches tall.


3. A wicker monkey!

Here are some pictures that perhaps better present the glory of that candle votive. I am so going to start making these. Now you all know what you're getting next xmas.

Well,that candle holder sure made me smile! You're right,it looks like an open-mouthed tiki-what would really put it over the top would be some googly eyes-too much!

Vern - That wicker monkey is fantastic. I'm hoping one day to find one of those myself. I have several vintage postcards that show that those were actually used as decor in several old tiki bars.

Oh I love that glittery green candle holder thingy!!

It reminds me of both my grandmothers. One loved Hawaii & Tahiti, and had all sorts of kitchy stuff, I know this is something she would have loved. My other Grandma decorated cakes with all sorts of little figures, and I used to have a ball playing with them.

I've been toying with the idea of making a snow dome, that thing really reminds me of one. It's the tiny tropical scene that appeals to me so much...like a window into paradise. Just like a tiki bar!

Thanks for posting the pictures!
