So whats is that one item that you are dying to find and have? Possibly that velvet leeteg painting, or those killer witco stools, or maybe evan that elusive viscious virgin mug? So what the item that keep you scouring those thrift store?

Me personally it's gotta be one of those lamps that ol laney girl snap up.The one with the starfish in it, man what I wouldnt do for one of those.Im sure some one will come up with something that will make me change my mind, but for the moment, thats what keeps me going, finding one of those bad boys at my local store for 5 bucks,HA.

My Holy Grail is actually a wish-list of items that I will never obtain!

Kahiki Moai
Flanking the entrance to my house.


Wall of Tropical Fish
In the entrance foyer.


Kahiki Fireplace
On the main wall in my Polynesian room.


Pitcairn Neon Googie Sign
Mounted on the wall opposite of the Kahiki fireplace.


Kon-Tiki Neon Sign
In my tropical backyard oasis just before you enter the grotto.


1961 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible
In the garage.


And the piece-de-resistance...

Big Daddy Olu - In MY front yard!




HEY, A GUY CAN DREAM RIGHT?!

Keep house hunting, pop, maybe you'll find all this in a house! It's not healthy to want so much you can't have!
Seriously, the things I really want are a Witco fountain and the Firedancers Art piece to go with my lamp. Most of the fun is finding tikis at a killer price so I take what I can get. I did drop some dough on my witco bars as a gift to myself for selling my condo. I earned it! The few mugs I really want are my Mom's and she wont let me have them until she dies. They have memories and stories attached which make them far more valueable than the high prices they could fetch on ebay.
Non-tiki wise I want a '59 Cadi. Eldo. convert.or a '53 Cadi. Eldo. convert. like my Dad had (good luck finding the '53) I'll keep dreaming!

I know... my holy grail stuff is just beyond fantasy. Now, realistically, my holy grail stuff would include things like an original Mai Kai or Kahiki Mystery Drink bowl. Still, I'm too cheap to dish out the cash required to obtain one.

I agree - my holy grail is a Mauna Loa mug, which can be aquired for about 200 of my Canadian dollars on Ebay. But to me, that would take all the fun out if it. The point of a holy grail is really the long, arduous crusade of looking for it - not the simple handing over of scads of cash!!!

So, I continue to scour thrift stores from Toronto to Toledo....

Well, it's not exactly a Holy Grail, but I keep looking for a pair of those silly little glasses with ribs around the botton that many tiki places served a drink in called a Deep Sea Diver, or a Skin Diver, or a Pearl Diver or some kind o' diver or other. I've always figured they would be super easy to find, but Nooooo. Finding these glasses is driving me crazy.

I want this mug from the Kona Hawaii. It's not all that rare, but, I like it.
Mahalo,
Al

That's one my Mom has. I saved it from her paintbrushes and pens. I want that one too but have to wait for her to die. I like having my Mom around more but if she upsets me..... Last one sold on ebay for $75+ I hope I don't run into Al at a tiki yard sale! It's on!

There is a Tiki still life painted by August Holland that is my holiest of grails.

It depicts a Tiki holding a bowl, and light from inside the bowl is illuminating the tiki. He is standing to one side of a bowl of fruit, and the background is a blue wash with tikis subtly placed in the design. The foreground is a reflective surface with the tiki and background being present as reflections.

I WANT THE ORIGINAL!!!

Laney,

I hope nothing happens to your mom, kinda unexpectedly, if ya know what I mean (wink, wink).

OC Homicide might not understand all the posts refering to items you desire of hers but must wait until her passing to get!

I'm still scouring the net and the thrift stores for the elusive polynesian, alabaster, ibex moai as seen here at the Trader Vics in Beverly Hilly with LapuRocker. Still easily the most sought after and rarest tiki collectable.

I hear ya GeekyTiki that was also on my wish list along with the puffer fish light set. I can handle on a print thou. But I'm in hog heaven when I find anything at the thrift store-here in Bradenton, Florida you're extremely lucky to find much at all. The snowbirds don't bring much when their here except the essentials to stay at their condos.

I want a crisp photo of a stylish beehived early 60's beauty drinking out of that damn headhunter mug at Ren Clark's. The ultimate image of modern primitivism!
It must exist somewhere somehow. I mean would you not have posed with that mug for giggles at the time?
