I, too, am a "tiki newbie" as were all of you at one time. Where is the "aloha spirit" in accepting that there is a learning curve to collecting (anything)? Is tiki collecting an exclusive club for only longterm experienced collectors? I guess I'm one of the "idiot" ones, but it is a passion that fills me with such exuberant joy and happiness, much more than many other interests I've had over the years.

Tiki collecting and immersing oneself in tiki culture is an addiction that has a quick onset and a very swift downward (upward?) spiral into helpless addiction, as I'm sure many of you have discovered. We are all in this together! : )

I think the increased bidding on eBay is just an indicator that the tiki craze is making a long-overdue comeback into the collective conscience, as evidenced by its resurgence in popularity in even mainstream retail (i.e. Tiki stuff at TARGET!!). I am hoping this translates into fewer tiki bars and restaurants being torn down and more being built (we need at LEAST one in Vermont!).
