I am also selling a vintage 1950s or 1960s mosaic of a Moai (a moai-saic?)

This was hanging in my old house and Shag was eyeing it saying if we ever wanted to sell it....

That is so bitchen! It could be related to my Moai mosaic on page 174 of the Book of Tiki. Although I know five lucky owners of that same (with varieties) piece, YOURS I have never seen before. I feel for you and your financial situation that forces you to put this on the auctioning block. Why is Josh not buying it? Then again, maybe you get a better price on e-bay, although lately it has been reflecting the economy's tight money.

I am very curious to watch this climb up there, which it certainly will. I wish you hundreds and hundreds of dollars (or thousands?, the WITCO world that was for sale in a Palm Spings store for over a year for $1200.- was bought on that Tiki weekend, even BEFORE my slide show...maybe the guy from MOCA got it). Even though money is tight for most, there is always the individual for whom money is no object. I wish you one of those. Start bidding, everybody!

Big bro, yep, that is what I saw too. Just like that long mosaic at the beginning of the chapter. Already cmmented to Pam what a great piece it is, and how far away from my spending abilities it will eventualy go!

Mugs come and go, except my current crop of must-haves! on ebay, heee hee, but this is a real find. I put this up with a wood Tiki "supposedly" from the Luau/Hanalei that was sold a few months back.

I want this mosaic, but I ain't a getting it!

The current bid is now $20.50 with 9+ days to go. Any guesses how high it will go when it ends? My estimate is $125-150. Too high or too low?

I double dog dare want it, and I am breaking Piggie as I type. This puppy is mine, I pity the fool that tries to outbid me. No one shall defeat Cpt. Midnite on this auction, must have must have must have.

Just trying a little trash talking psych-out job here. Did it work? Nahh, didn't think so. Shucks, Drat, Barnacles!

I see it going for 250-300 bones.

Where are all those rich tikiheads out there? The thing's only up to $40.. oh, wait... you're all too dang smart to bid now! It'll be fun to see the last five minutes of this auction!

Thanks everyone for being so swell - I'm a little sad to see this guy go, but he'll be much happier hanging on the wall of someone who will really LOVE him than in our closet.

Now the question is.... WHO LOVES HIM THE MOST????

P.S. The reason Josh saw this lovely item so many times and lusted after it so hot and heavy was because my husband, Jeff, was in the Tiki Tones and Huntington Cads with him and Josh would come over and see it at our old San Pedro abode.

Three cheers for the Tiki Tones! 'The Enchanted Tiki Tones' 7" is a particularly inspired piece of vinyl!!

Holy crap, Batman!

Several hours to go and it is $500.

This baby is hot, Hot, HOT. So much for my $250-300 prediction. Way to go, it is a nice piece.

Will it go higher? Aye, it will go HIGH!

Hey JunglePam!
Are you staying home to see what the final bid goes to? It ends at 6:38 pm. so it would be just about the time the "crawlers" will be having their first cocktail of the evening. $510 already! Woohoo! FreakyTikiCheers to you!

Randy-


I am infinitely jealous of your levels of disposable income. First the Lanai tiki, now this. You are the king. Watch out for that last minute Shag-Attack- he (may) have more money to burn than all of us combined.
