Yes, your stuff is very nice. I can't afford it right now, but you should concider setting up shop, so people don't have to go through ebay to buy your stuff. If you already have a shop, will you be attending mondo tiki in vegas and show you stuff?

Thanks

Keigs, I found TC last year while doing a search for Witco after buying my 2nd bar set. I found nothing on the company and would love for there to be a website (or part of a website) with the history, vintage pieces, and catalog pics. I think that would be amazing and I'd be willing to send you pictures of any/all my Witco including 3 different bars (5 one style tiki stools & 2 another style), a large shield and spears, 4 hanging tiki heads, a bar shelf, the firedancers lamp, King and Queen, and (still ??? if Witco) Hawaiian Island carvings. It dosen't look like Sven is comming out with that book anytime soon and it would be nice for non-collectors to know what a family tradition you are carrying on as well as having reference for Witco collectors.

Holy smokes Laney your are loaded with Witco decor. We are starting out with a small website to see how it goes. If all goes well there will be lots of information on Witco and pictures of vintage Witco decor as the site grows. I am not much of a computer genius so it will be a basic website at first.
A6Louie- I finished another shelf here is the link

Hey Ken,
While in Florida last December I was lucky to have found a pair of vintage Witco wall hangings. They look like long paddles with Tikis on top. Problem is, they spent much of their life on the exterior of a Tiki bar exposed to that intense Florida sun. Now they are considerably faded- especially when seen next to other well preserved pieces. What can I do to bring them back? Is there a particular stain or oil I should use to get them closest to their origional color? I want them to look their best, any suggestions?

Boutiki- It says in the Witco catalog you can use dark shoe polish, india ink, or any dark stain for touching up fading. Try it on a small portion that is not very visable first to see how it looks.

I went through Bob's (OA) Witco cats. a while back to try to find the bar we got. It was not in ant of them. Did they do custom bars too? (it's more spanish medalionish 4 pannel type 6'top) We got it from a lady who bought it back in the 60's in Seattle. The stools are the real deal.
