Hello, Tiki Central Ohana, I missed out on Sven's "Tiki Modern" and am trying to buy a copy. Ebay has one but it has already gone over the $100 mark with 6 hrs to go. I thought I would reach out to you folks. I can afford about $75 max, as I've sold some Tiki magazine back issues from my collection. Thanks in advance!

Rocky

Yes, I ordered one from books-a-million, but it is on back order, and I'm sure I'll eventually get an e-mail saying it's not available. I don't know why they allow a hit with the original published price, when they probably haven't had one available for a long time, but I took a shot. I checked e-bay before I bid on the one on there. And the completed listings were from $60-$70 dollars. No I haven't talked to Sven yet. I know he's busy, but I guess I can drop him a note.

I'm also willing to be patient!!

Thanks for your help, Rocky

Talked to Sven at Tiki O. Even he only had the one copy for himself to sell at the end of his seminar, which, unfortunately, I had to miss.

Last I checked there's a few overseas sellers that have it for $60, but that doesn't include shipping, which is a fortune.

Hey Rocky,

do you mean tiki magazine?
http://www.tikimagazine.com I think I have issues #spring 2005 to current, if you are looking to get back your collection, etc. All in VG grade.

Nope, not Tiki magazine. I have all the issues. After the 1 book on e-bay sold for $100, the ones on amazon are going for $112.00 now! I better start looking into a paper route or something!

Hi Jon, I have BOT, and love it! Like I said, I'm willing to be patient. I've noticed in the past that prices will go down a bit when there are more than 3 or 4 for sale on Amazon. Right now there is a signed copy/no dust jacket on e-bay for 150 or b.o. I tried $80, but alas no dice!!

Hey Nokala,

I assume you're in Rochester New York? If so, you should check out the Strand Bookstore in NYC. I just looked and it seemed they had one copy of tiki modern for $75.00. Plus, the Strand is one of the best bookstores I've ever had the pleasure of shopping at. I'm sure shipping would be cheap for you.

Good luck, let us know how it turns out.

-Slacks
