Has anyone sorted their swizzle sticks by categories? If so what categories do you use? Thanks. Also matchbooks?

I think the categories are tiki, shoe box full of non-tiki and some non-tiki that just looks good.

I guess that's a good first level split:

tiki and non-tiki

Now what?

I agree with Mr. NoNaMe and I also sort by Nautical (Mostly Lobsters and Pirates) and Non-Crappy Las Vegas.

Here is the 2013 Tonga Hut swizzle.

Boris,

I picked up some swizzles from the Hilton Hawaiian Village. The first set has a cool Tiki logo.



The second set with the hula girl.



This was the message I got from the seller:

These were a small batch custom order that Hilton had made about a year or so ago. Once they went through their stock, they did not reorder. They were made in the long tiki swizzle, the hula girl, and there was also a blue one with a ukulele.

I also picked up some Havana Club muddler swizzles in Paris.



have extras of all of these to trade. Shoot me a PM if interested.

DC

I have a "Hawaiian" section of swizzles sorted.

Just got a couple of the new Beachbum Berry Latitude 29 swizzles (more like paddles!).

I used grass cloth wall paper glued on foam core, then used dental floss to sew each swizzle up and tie it in the back. I'm starting another soon now that I have more great Tiki swizzles!

Tikidon, I dig your light fixture. Perfect for the art the swizzle sticks are.

Hang10 and TikiDon,

Those swizzle presentations look awesome. I was talking to Boris yesterday and saying that I needed to do something like that with part of my collection.

There have been some really great new Tiki swizzles coming out lately, I have been able to pick up a few on my recent travels.

Ventiki in Ventura - they just got these in! Awesome art by Tiki Tony.


Hale Pele "Hockey Stick" swizzle from Portland


High Dive in San Diego


And the uber cool Kon Tiki that Doug Horne hooked me up with.





Now, I just need to get a better camera.

The new Ventiki swizzle's are great, hopefully i'll have some of them soon.

And i have to say you can thank me for the Kon Tiki ones as i played a part in having those made. Last year when i was in the U.S. i kept hassling the manager at the Kon Tiki to have some sort of ephemera made, be it coasters, matchbooks, or preferably swizzle sticks and this year when i was there i got on his back about it again. A few days after i mentioned it again, when i went back he came straight up to me and said, "Ok, you've convinced me, i've just ordered some swizzle sticks. Should be ready in 6-8 weeks". Of course it was closer to 9 weeks, right after i had left and flown home, but fortunately a friend sent me some. They are a great looking swizzle stick.

Now just a question to those who have their swizzles displayed in frames, how are you mounting them (hang10tiki)? I was thinking maybe a drop of hot glue but how tikidon has done it seems like a good idea with running the risk of the glue damaging them in any way. Any other suggestions?

I like all the new stuff


As for mine I get a shadow box,
Then I use suture material to tie a knot through the backing material in the box.
It has nylon material pre attached to a curved needle.
The bent needle makes it easy to attach.








The spousal unit likes to sew,
She said they make bent sewing needles too.
Then just pick the color thread you want and start attaching them.







Have fun and let's see some results
