If there's stuff that doesn't sell, we'll either have another sale in a few months, or try to post some stuff on eBay or TC.

Looking forward to seeing people tomorrow!

Hopefully the rain will give us a break! Either way, my husband & I will be there; probably sometime around Noon.

Just got back, here's a couple pics while still setting up.


Tons of clothes, and all killer, no filler.


We didn't even have enough space for all the mugs!


$10 dollar table.


I scored a couple shirts, a book and and dashboard bobble tiki!

Thanks so much to all the helpers and all the shoppers! It was a really great day, and we raised a lot of money for the family. I think people got some pretty good deals on stuff too.

We do have leftovers! We'll be getting a few items up on ebay, and we'll probably have another sale at some point as well, most likely at another location.

I'll update this thread when we have more news.

Mieko deserves a lot of praise for all her hard work in packing up, storing, unpacking, setting up, and selling Kate's collection. This is a huge undertaking, and it's done out of love because the money is going to Kate's family.

Thanks Mieko, you are awesome!

Mieko's the BEST!

GROG wish GROG could've gone, but GROG had to get stuff finished up before GROG go to Tennessee for a week.

I was bummed I missed it, considering I'm thousands of miles away. So I'm glad items will be up on ebay! I'm looking forward to helping out in some way.

Big thanks to Mieko and everyone involved in putting this together! There were so many tremendous temptations, I only wish our budget were bigger. We'll try to save some pennies for the next sale. I was never able to meet Kate, but will think of her often everytime I wear or use one of our great purchases.
Mahalo!

For those who couldn't make it to Oceanside yesterday, I listed a couple of mugs on e-bay. See the notice in the Tiki Marketplace forum.

I would love to procure a shirt from Kate's incredible collection - we had a trade in the pipeline a while back but it never eventuated (for what are now obvious reasons). Please post in the marketplace if any of them end up on ebay...

Paipo, you're right, we should list some shirts on e-Bay too. I'll post it on TC when it happens.
