Hi Everybody! I was able to buy and secure the last remaining barrel lights that hung inside Bahooka. These are over 40 years old and are made of wooden barrels that were cut in half. By the printing on some, they look like they were Scotch barrels and some have the inside charred, which is what they did to add flavor. This is a great chance to get an actual light that was used in Bahooka for over 40 years and add an authentic slice to your home tiki bar, rumpus room, dungeon, etc. I have become friends with one of the new owners and spent the past weekend lugging these home. I do have the pics to prove their provenance as you would want to make sure you're getting the real deal. I'm giving them a light cleaning (compressed air, brush) but will pretty much leave them as is. There are at least 2 different sizes, with the larger ones being pretty heavy. I am a big tiki fan and have lurked on these pages for years, but now I've signed up because I would like to get these out to people who would appreciate their tiki history and not turn them into an outdoor planter. My sister suggested that and I had to tell her to shush. Anyway, I live in the San Gabriel Valley, close to the OC, IE, and LA. I have these neatly stored now, but will go through them and clean them up in the meanwhile. Oh, and I have some of the Parrots that hung about also.

Pictures are always welcome and they help with the sell.
How much are you asking for the barrels and the parrots?

Yeah, I'm on my work laptop right now, so I don't have the pics. When I get home tonight, I'll start posting some up. I've got the barrels, parrots, fiberglass float lights,and some small box lights. I have some friends that are tiki fans that are going to come over so that's why I'm putting out a feeler for now because I'm not 100% sure what's going to be available, but there definitely will be items available, especially the barrel lights. I sure wish I had my own tiki bar right now.

Yeah this should be posted on the Tiki Marketplace section too. But I was kinda sad I didn't grab a parrot or anything so I would take a small piece of Bahooka for my home bar. Let us know what you got and how much and there should be lots of takers.

Did you get the cat puzzle? I would take that for sure just kidding.

I'd be interested in the barrel lamps. I loved the bahooka. Let us know what the costs are. Mahalo.

Would love a parrot out here in Boston. I'm so glad I was able to see Bahooka in person, a couple of times.

Would like a fiberglass float light but have no idea of price.
When I go to antique and flea markets and there is no price on an item
I don't ask for a price.

I'm one person who would not be disappointed with a fiberglass float light.

The cat puzzle? I did see a puzzle lying face down on the carpet in the banquet room, but I ignored it. Lol. I want to get the pictures up tonight next to a tape measure so you all can see the dimensions. I'll also try to weigh them also so you can make sure you have a sturdy enough rafter to hang them from.

One of the floats before


And after. Decades of grime accumulated on these.
