What is on the Waldorf Swizzle? Is it a guy playing a drum? I've never seen one up close.
DC is, of course, right! Here's a close up of the drummer (a bit blurry...) with the matchbook for comparison:

I don't actively collect swizzles but I thought you collectors might be interested in seeing these Cuban swizzles that are for
sale on this website. Also look on the next page of search results for more.

Unless I am looking in the wrong place, has there ever been a "Swap Shop" or "Tiki Central Trading Post" If so please let me know where this is. Is this what the TIKI Market Place is supposed to be used for?
I still think it would be useful to have an area where we can post smaller items like swizzles, postcards, matchbooks and offer these for trades with other TIKI Central members. I know that I have been searching for a couple swizzles for a while and likewise there may be individuals that are looking for swizzles that I may have. Member can PM each other after that and once a deal has been reached just remove the post.
I think all I am doing is restating TIKIVILLE's original idea, but what I don’t know is what is available for trade and what is simply a displayed collection

sounds like a great Idea to me ,
Rather than hoarding them all and paying ebay fees to sell them to strangers,we should have a trading place here !
Who's gonna start?
( we can keep this as a swizzle stop if everybodys cool with that,all mine are available for trade )
