thanks so so much my friend! since Im currently not working, unless you consider being a house husband work, I have lots of "free time" to check craigs list, antique stores, swap meets, and thrift stores! the big buddha came out of a store that buys up storage lockers and then resells the stuff, Im guessing it was from a movie prop house only because there was a giant gong, a tropical tower and a few other odds and ends along side it. Not to mention, alot of items come from members here on TC there duplicates and such, im big into African masks and tribal stuff which some may find not tiki, so ive got a few friends who pick em up for me, not to mention, my first love before tikis was US Militaria, items like uniforms, headgear and field craft. never really got out of that and there are several gun shows and militaria shows I attend each month that have tons of old binos, field phones, Japanese flags, WWII hats and such for sale as well as the art and advertisement from the era to add to the tiki motif !! so, for me its the best of both worlds, i get to buy cool vintage militaria stuff and put it in the WWII sub/PT room, or add it to the tiki section, if your in california send me a PM and I'll share some of the shows I go to
thanks again for the kind words!
