This is the first time I've seen this thread. I haven't put in an offer. Those are really beautiful.
I too remember looking through those doors into the Reef as a kid in curiosity. I walked down that hall many times to Sambo's. I bought one of the big masks from that hall years ago.

I'm a little embarrassed to show this topless photo of myself as a kid in public, But it'll give me a little Tropics street cred. July 1977, one month before the king died.

Well, back to my last question here, c'mon folks:

Has ANYBODY had any reaction to their p.m.s/ phone calls to the seller? If he DID get even close to 50 responses to his post, some of those senders must be reading this, and can share their experience here, please.

Another day comes to an end, with no reaction from the seller OR anyone here on the board. What is this " I am learning NOT to share -month"!? Are all the people that wrote p.m.s to the offer just lurkers here, on the prowl to skim possessions for their collection, and otherwise couldn't give a rat's ass about Tiki?

I still have the doors and am NOT holding out for a better offer. It's the holidays and like many other folks not only am I caught up in the madness of it all BUT, I am also trying to perform all my communication tasks with my old backup droid phone which sucks.

So DesertXJ760 will you be taking bigbrotiki (Sven) up on his offer?
it has been a number of days now & you are aware of this thread & have read it by now.

I can assure you this would be the best place for the doors to go
& stay in the community that supports "Tiki History"
Then to go to the only open for business Tiki Bar in the same town
they came from, what more could you hope for?

I agree with ATP. Sven would keep these doors alive within the world of tiki.

I, too am hopefully the owner will sell these doors to Sven so they can be showcased for the world to appreciate.

Please call him back. Forget about everyone else!

Thanks everybody for your vote of confidence. Those who know me can attest that my posts are not meant to say "I AM THE GUY!" like I own Tiki, but merely state the fact that I am lucky to be in the position to support the art form, and by that fact I feel a certain responsibility for it. I am not into possession, I am into sharing it with people who appreciate it. The rewards for that are much greater than any mere ownership.
