Scores from this weekend's Austin Record Convention:
They ranged between $2-10 each which is the most I'm usually willing to pay for Hawaiian or Exotica records (Gene Rains, Paul Conrad and Robert Drasnin being the exceptions and my top wants at the moment). It amazes me how many dealers were asking $20-50 for super common Martin Denny and Les Baxter records that they most assuredly returned home with.
And here are some recent thrift store finds all for $6 and under:

Some recent finds: NZ picture sleeve EPs dating from the late 50s to the early 60s, including 3 from Wellington's Viking Records label. The first two are by Eddie Lund & His Tahitians:
Loma & Her Polynesian Playmates (produced and arranged by Eddie Lund):
And one from Astor Records, an Auckland label. This EP looks like it would have been an in-flight souvenir on TEAL's flights from Auckland to South Pacific destinations all the way to Tahiti:
The earliest known tiki mug: "Ruru and Weku", designed by Harry Hargreaves of Crown Lynn, New Zealand, 1949.
