Iíve been talking about this in Shout for a few days now, and thought I should post in the forums.

I was first to reply to a Seattle Craigslist Ad that read "Witco cocktail table, also have tiki mug collection of about 40 pieces 150.00 Assorted Tiki collectibles, coco joes, some restaurant menus,and bar accessories. would prefer to sell as a collection. 100.00. Also have a set of 1940's Weil Ware dishes with bamboo motif.very beautiful. 100.00. these are extremely good prices for these extra cool treasures. I'll send pictures to those who are seriously interested.Ive been collecting tiki for about 15 years,so I know what I have."

would this be too good to be true? ~ NO




Thatís the Assorted Tiki Collectibles. sold! I didnít even take a picture of the mugs because I saw the Trader Vicís SeathorseÖ I passed on the Witco, which was awesome, but just too darned large!

The best part of this story is that the seller, Dawn ~ is a local artist whose work, Iíve always admired. I purchased a couple pieces of her art!

Iím still sorting through boxes ~ taking pictures before finding space in the Rongorongo Room for my treasures. Look for more posts starting with Dogbytes Mess o Tiki(separated by category: wood, cocojoes, ephemera, mugs, art). will get it scanned and photographed as time permits!

elicia
the luckiest girl in the tiki universe.

contact me if you see something you'd like to trade!

Fantastic finds!!!

Ya know how somebody inevitably sees something in a picture that has nothing to do with the intent of the post? Well, here goes . .

Is that a Nean rug from Ikea (the earth rug)?? I've been looking for one of those since they stopped selling them about three years ago! Anybody have any ideas where I could find one, PLEASE PM me!

We now return you to the original intent of this thread. Thanks!

Is that a Moai tissue box?

Seriously, congrats. "Good score" would be an understatement.

honest to god, it IS another tissue box! i was wondering who'd notice that first!

Freddy: a seattle TC person bought the witco, i'll let them post the pics.. (or i will in a few days if they dont!)

Silverline: the rug might have been for sale, but it was pretty well worn, do you want me to ask? i'm guessing shipping wouldnt be worth it (try craigslist.org)

Coco Joes & HIP

Why are these so difficult to photograph? And even harder to get clean!

In my Mess o Tiki, I received: Petroglyph ashtray (TQ 182), wall hanging (TQ 175), pipe ashtray (TQ 174), napkin holder( TQ 172), ashtray, 2 warriors, hula girl, surfer on wave, girl, menehune (he has a broken arm), henehune w/ bowl.




not coco joes or HIP this is Holo-Ka-Hana, this heavy figurine was made before Hawaii was a state!

I agree, Coco Joe's are hard to photograph -- they suck up the available light like a black hole. You did a fine job though, the details are clearly visible. And I know what you mean about getting them clean -- it's like the dust of the ages settles in the cracks and never comes out no matter how well you wash them.

I really like the pattern on the petroglyph ashtray. Here's mine (Coco Joe's #269)
