I know it's superficial...nice to have family and health...but...I got the Last Shag-Adventurland Hawaiian Shirt...The Hen must have bought it before I went into the shop and they were out when we were at Disneyland last...gloat
And you? Any significant scores?

I got a Hawaiian Flower Bracelet, and matching earrings and pendant. It is super cool, with plumeria, hibiscus, bird-of-paradise, monastero leaf and heliconia represented in the bracelet. It is a linked bracelet, not the bangle kind, which I don't like as they do bang on things...
Anyway, I will always have Hawaii to wear even when I may be elsewhere!
What other cool gifts were received?

I got a vintage ceramic beer stein-style mug with Iolani Palace on the front and the statue of King Kamehameha on the back, a pocket knife with a 7" blade that I will add to my collection of Texas Toothpics and Tennesee Toad Stickers and the ultimate Monty Python book: "THE PYTHONS autobiography by THE PYTHONS".

I found that same stein for $7.00 at a Brown Elephant in Chicago Wednesday 12/21 and gave it as a gift to the person I drew a Secret Santa. Bottom is stamper MADE IN JAPAN. Can anyone provide any further info on the stein?
