so ...though there have been threads in the past that have dealt with current or wanted TIKI swizzle sticks I thought I'd start a new and more comprehensive one to showcase examples in existance.
This way anybody lookin' or wantin' has a first stop to see whats out there is this tiny Tiki kingdom.
Post away !
(OH, and if anybody has questions on trading or selling we can all pm the poster,to keep the thread clean...sound good?)
Maybe this could be a prelude to the first great international swizzle trade lol!

Rather a shocked one. (Since I am not an "Arrrgh!"-ing pirate)
I realize that this is a "show your collection" and trading thread, and that some collectors freely mix (for example) their old and new Tiki mugs on a shelf, but I personally prefer a clear distinction, at home and here, for historical correctness and for the sake of educating newcomers to the culture. Tossing classic Tiki and Revival Tiki together is confusing the issue.

Ok fair enough, so should we have a seperate thread for old and new?
When should the cut off date be? And cant we all just get along? Lol
I admit I am new to this in that my expertice is general and unfounded and I guess there is no time like the present for a book on the subject ( not meant as anything but an idea) did you know there is a swizzle stick collectors convention?
What I am saying is this is too much for me and light years past my abilities, we will keep this as a show us thread and if somebody chooses to educate then great !
I for one would really dig the information...

Tikiville, if you haven’t seen or don’t have Tiki Quest yet it has 3 full pages with some of the best vintage swizzles. There are also some great swizzle shots sprinkled throughout The Book of Tiki and Tiki Modern.*

Here are some swizzles that I don’t see very often ~


Mauna Loa Lounge, Mayfair Hotel - Until this year I didn’t know this one existed.


The incredibly boring Mark Thomas Outrigger.


Hawaiian Village but which one? He kinda looks like a Paul Marshall mug, he’s very cool.

I know in this
post "Swizzle Enthusiast" Bosko says the Hawaiian Village of Tampa “borrowed” their amazing swizzle stick design from the Hilton Hawaiian Village logo.



I'd really like to know where the lumpy little guy came from.


*If you already know this or already own these books than nevermind.

What is on the Waldorf Swizzle? Is it a guy playing a drum? I've never seen one up close.

Bora Boris,

Nice swizzles, as usual. The Tahitian Lounge at the Waldorf Hotel used the Leeteg drummer painting as its logo for Menus, matchbooks, and now apparently swizzles.

Here are some photos posted by Taboo Dan.
