Thanks for the heads up probably wouldn't have found them until I dumped the foam peanuts in the giant box of peanuts I have in the basement and who knows when that would have happened. Found a nice big stack of drink suggestion placemats and a most excellent bar guide that was at one point a marketing piece for Northland Firelog. You, my friend, ROCK.

I received my package yesterday and was surprised to find all this great stuff neatly packed into a fairly small box! A blue whalers tiki shot glass, an OMC Maui Kauai mug in it's ORIGINAL BOX, Trader Vic's Bartender's Guide, Walgreens S&P shakers, Don the Beachcomber plaque, four Maui Tiki Tours postcards and one large Mai Kai postcard. WOW! The only thing missing was the TC name of the person who'd sent it all. I sent a quick PM inquiry to Trade-Off coordinator Bogielocks and the mystery was solved. My trader was none other than Bogielocks himself! We both got a laugh outa that one! Thanks Bogielocks for all the great stuff AND for making this trade-off happen!

Have not seen my package yet I leave on vacation in a couple of days. I keep staring out the window waiting to see what the delivery guy brings me. The anticipation is killing me.

Got the mug on Friday but was out of town for the weekend. Just opened it today to find my surprise all the way from Canada. I don't know your TC name so thank you so much "A".

I picked up my package today from Trader Tom.




Wow. All I can say is wow!

Classic card with a Varga girl.

Two Aloha tumblers with sweet looking wahines on them. Don Ho Suck 'Em Up and Damon's Glendale glasses, very classy.

Swizzles from Tiki Farm, The Kahiki, Trader Vic's Waikiki and Kon Tiki Waikiki!

Herman Melville's "Typee" paperback.

$15.00 in gift certificates to the Bahooka!

And a Tiki Farm "Joe Vitale" "Tiki Boy" mug commemorating the birth of his Trader Tom's son, Joseph Alan Morgan!

What a great day. Thank you Trader Tom!

PTD

You need to break out the macro lens and tighten up on that Varga girl a bit.

Thanks Closettiki! This got here on Friday:



I got a Don the Beachcomber Barrel Mug! So Nice!
I'm also a bit of a swizzle stick nerd, so the Kahiki ones were great! I never had those ones yet.

Plus, I received several Beachcomber tiki food picks! I'm guessing these may have originated from the Edmonton restaurant, so it wouldn't be much of a stretch to say that these food picks have practically travelled in a full circle around Western North America.


P.S. TikiHai, that was me who sent the Hing Wah Calgary version of the R3 mug. Sorry for the lack of info (...and goodies! I too thought everyone would follow the "1 mug for 1 mug" rule...but now I know better!)

I got my box of Tiki swag from "RWH" today

Thanks SO much! This came at the perfect time too. I was in the middle of a nasty family situation on the phone when the box was delivered to my door. It helped put a much needed smile on my face.

My package was waiting for me when I got back from my little road trip this week. appreciated the package decoration and lots of fragile warnings, even on the bottom of the package, just in case.



Upon opening the box the first sight to meet my eyes were guess what...tiki butt.



excavating down deeper into the box I found my mug with his little toothpick holder friend and some stir sticks to add a little style to my next drink...next drink sounds good, maybe I'll go make something in it now...



Thanks Uncle John!!!
And thanks Bogielocks for setting up the mug trade off!

It looks like the Spring Trade Off was quite successful. I hope everyone enjoyed himself or herself. I'll try and organize another one around the holidays. That way you have a summer of bargain hunting, yard sale locating, and Ebay sniping.

If someone hasn't received their trade, PM me, and I will try to get it resolved. I have just about everyone accounted for.

Until Christmas time, thanks to all who were involved...

Mahalo for shopping Tiki Central..

Rick

The Canada Post truck pulled up out front this afternoon



Could it be...??



Yessss indeedy!



Really well packed. Lots of tape requiring special tools.



At last! Getting close.



Bingo! Awesome vintage mug from the Stockton Islander.
There's something inside.



An array of swizzles: Harvey's Lake Tahoe, Hale Tiki, New Zealand Airlines... cool, a fez.
But there's more.



Coco Joe petroglyph ashtray. Excellent!
But there's still more.



Nifty little carved Moai. Sweet!
What's this at the bottom? Can there still be more?



Indeed. Adorable little plate with New Zealand hei tiki.






Schwag galore. I'm dumbfounded. Tikisgrl you rock my world!



I give this trade two big thumbs up.

Kisses.
