...this is the one thing I hate about Tiki Central...all the stupid B.S.!
Can we just focus on collecting Tiki so we can escape reality when we log in?
That's all I ask...

Well, like any community, we have our "characters", and some are a little gruff. I commend you in continuing here with undeterred enthusiasm, Bali Ohio, and thank you for starting a separate Bali Hai thread in Locating Tiki. I am looking forward to hearing more about this Witco bar here. Don't worry about the Jackie Gleason mix-up, I get that a lot in my research that folks who are from the Tiki lounge generation do not remember all the details. Considering what the seller of that bar stated in your ealier post, it might even be that it was not that specific style of Witco bar that was at the Bali Hai, just A Witco bar, they made many different styles. You are just starting to get into this, and as your experience and knowledge with Tiki archeology increases, your senses will sharpen. You definitely caught the bug, and you definitely have a knack for it.

When you say the OP and Bali O Hai O are posting from the same computer, don't you really mean they're posting from the same IP address?

That they're posting from the same IP address does NOT necessarily imply that they're posting from the same computer. It's not unusual for people accessing the internet through the same company, organization, or service provider to share an IP address.

Bali O Hai O mentioned that they both work for the city. That would explain it.

Yes, you're right, that could very well explain it.

But you have to agree that it was a bit odd.


To recap for those not following:

Mikenrich joined up here stating that the Witco, which he might sell, could be from the Bali Hai. A day later Bali O Hai O joins TC stating that the Witco was indeed from the Bali Hai.

When the shared i.p. was brought up and questioned, Bali O Hai O stated that he and Mikenrich both work for the city of Canton thus the same i.p. address. He also stated that it was he that told Mikenrich about Tiki Central but does not know him personally.

It's not unusual for people to join up here in the hopes of selling something and then have an alter identity join up in an attempt to jack up the perceived value. It's happened before and the shared i.p. was a red flag.

In anycase, Bali O Hai O has since recanted the claim that the Witco is from the Bali Hai and Mikenrich is apparently not selling it.

Nevertheless, I thank Bali O Hai O for all of the info and eye-candy he has brought here to TC and if Mikenrich decides to sell his find, I'm sure someone will be happy to buy it no matter where it came from.

Let's see this bar in situ with the new owner enjoying a Mai Tai.
This piece really demands it's own tiki lounge to live in.

I have the guys email address who sent it to me. I had posted originally on Craigslist that I was looking for Bali Hai stuff and he sent me the photo and that nap picture from a story he had on WebTV's Talkcity and wanted to know if I wanted to buy tiki stuff from him. I said no and never heard back. This was years ago. His forum name was at http://profile.talkcity.com/Tiki-Tom-Tom

PM me for his email.

I will soon have some photos of the stools, they did come with it but the foam is breaking down in them. I need to get them fixed up.

Someone on Craigslist sent you that photo?... I thought earlier you said you found it on a Canton rep website... my bad. Nevertheless, it is a fake.

Here's the original:

Hak, Columbo would be proud. My first thought was that the place just appropriated the Aku Aku design. Happened all the time. But the bottom edge of that item matches up nearly perfect in both images. Don't know what it shows or proves, but I think you're right about it being a fake.
