To add insult to injury, Deluxeprinters lifted the fountain photo from the Disney website and then watermarked the photo with his own name when he put it on Ebay.

And it gets better....The person that sold the first fountain now has a second one up for sale. I'll bet that person had friends to tag along to buy 4 or 6 fountains so the seller "deluxeprinters" could flip it on ebay.

Here are images of the jewelry box







There were the limited edition pendant's and jewelry still there - I think the price tags of $400+ make em a hard sell.

There were 3 or 4 pendants left when I was at Disneyana on Wednesday afternoon, I cant remember which. They were very nice, and located in the glass case near the back register.

Also, just to restate that box above wasn't a part of the anniversary merchandise, but rather a unique heirloom box collection by Robert Olszewski. They are all LE, and the Tiki Room Heirloom Box is a production of 1,963. The detailing is pretty remarkable. Downside is the box being pretty fragile, made out of some type of resin/polystone.

Well, I called first thing on Friday 06/27/08, got right in, and found they DO KNOW ABOUT THE LIST! They checked and found that my name was on it and said they will give me a call when they are available. They were fully aware that some people were at the park that didn't get on the list because they were too far down the line or whatever. They said they had known about the list but just didn't have it for awhile but they have it now.

Thatnks for the photo's of the box.

Yes it was not part of the anniversary merchandise and Is an heirloom / momento box.

I thought it was a Jewlery box ..

On another note I got my stuff today from Disney Delivers. Very nice and very happy with them. My shipping was only $30 bucks. Much easier on the pocket book than an $250 dollar plan ride and waiting inline for 5 or 6 hours.

Just went last night to Disneyana - here is what they still had on display -

Rongo Bowl - 6 left - asked the employee
Bracelets - a good amount (20+), seemed to have not been a favorite item.
T-shirt
Pitcher
Glassware
Toothpick glasses (Looking up in the disney dictionary that is - shot glasses)
Purse
Pillow - they didn't have these when we made it in, so shipments obviously still slowly coming in.
Jewelry Box - it wasn't with the bulk of the items, it was off on a shelf opposite where the bulk of the items were being shown.
A good amount of artwork, I don't know if this was a limited run, but figured I throw in the update.

I'd say keep calling delivears for updates on when they get in the remaining collector's set, since previous posts said they didn't have the amount stated that were to be produced. There was no mention from the employees on Sunday that there was a shortage, ala - The Fountain.

So that is the report from Disneyana.






What does the jewelry box look like? Anyone have a pic?

So there WERE prints of the tikis? (for 30 bucks... not 500 or whatever it was) Is that something they are going to carry for a while (like the Shag prints?). I wouldn't mind seeing some pictures of the event and the merchendise. Anyone...?

Gee I wonder who made the jewelry ????

And Disney sets the prices not the artists.

I wish the artist got half of the money things sell for .

Hey Mieko

I saw your suggestion but have been up to my eyeballs in work and didn't have time to photograph them.

So, here at last are the photos (on the hawaiian print) of Pele, Jose and Maui, and computer renders (on the sand) of Monkey Drummers and Koro (Disney still has my artist's proofs that they have to return). These are only editions of 10 each and I can tell you that the ones Disneyland has are Numbers 1 and 2 of each design. They are approximately 2.5 inches tall. The Jose, Maui, Pele and Koro are all $400, they are solid Sterling Silver on Black leather cords in Rosewood boxes with certificates of authenticity. The Monkey Drummers are $600, they too are solid Sterling Silver, with a Tahitian Pearl (approx. 11mm), on a fairly thick Sterling Silver chain in a Rosewood box with certificates of authenticity. Depending on the interest in them, they may do the entire edition of 10 each, or these 2 of each design may be it. They are build directly from photos of the actual tikis with the exception of Jose which is from Amanda Vissell's artwork.

































Thanks, Jen

Hey Tom

Thanks for the props. I love that one too. The jewelry was in the case everyone piled their purchases on.
So I don't think a lot of people saw them the opening day .

Jen

WooHooWahine and I were at D-line yesterday and stopped by Disneyana...The charm bracelets are in! It's funny (actually typical Disney lately) because I called first to see if they were in and they told me "No". So I asked the girl at the counter and she brought a couple out from the store room!

Also picked up the TIKI ROOM shadow box!

(There was a guy in there buying a few of them...I smelled "ebayer")
