That is just crazy! Its funny (or sad) when I think how excited I get to run across a single tiki mug (any mug) at a garage sale or thrift shop around here, so I can't even imagine how I might act if I were to walk up to your sale.

LoriLovesTiki make it a road trip but leave today to get here in time!

tikitube we still get excited when we find a mug. We got most of our collection on eBay paying shipping for every item. We didn't discover thrift stores until we had already been collecting for 20 years! Keep going to garage sales and thrift stores every so often we find something great.

GROG you can't blame it on a book. I know you gave Dan all the helpful hints.

======================================

This is the countdown to the HUGE Tiki Garage Sale. Here are the last of the photos and rules.

April 14th, 2018. Doors open at 8 AM and close at 1 PM.

Here are some more photos.


Dan figured out the best area for hanging the Hawaiian Jam's World shirts for sale.


100% rayon and very well made. $4 each.


Here's what the sale looks like from the driveway. We were able to separate two tables so more people could get in close.


The back left wall has shelves with mugs too.



The plastic sheets in the back are covering things not for sale. Our garage is decorated tiki so if there's no price tag on something that is hung on a wall then it's not for sale.




This rack hangs well above a doorway. Sit it on a ledge and put in two nails at the top. Dan's selling all the mugs we had on it so he decided to also let the metal rack sell.


Sometime prior to 2006 I won these two boxes of Moai lights on eBay. They were listed as "new old stock".


We never hung them and put them away. Dan just accidentally found them in time for our sale.


They are clean and


all the bulbs lit up for each box.


I had no table space left so I put them here in front of the back table. This is at the back wall. The grey and pink sea shells are from Sam's. You can read it on the bottom of one of them but not the other one. The sales ticket from long ago said they were from Sam's Seafood.


We went and bought one more table for check outs. You load a box then unload it on this


table and we'll add up what you spent. Or you can write your name on the box and set in on the driveway with me until you have finished shopping and filling all your boxes.


Bring boxes and bubble wrap. I am not supplying these it's up to you.

Thank you for checking out our sale. Cheers, Wendy

PS if you need our address just write a note here are send me a personal message, I also take them on facebook

If you friend me on facebook you'll be able to see a video of all the items for sale on Saturday 4/14/18. Elk Grove, CA.
CASH only. I don't have a smart phone for credit cards.

I am not advertising this sale to the public. We just want tiki people to come. No street signs.

If you need our address just request it here or under Personal Messages.

Today I made sticker tags with the men's sizes on the shirts to make it easier to select what will work for you.



The single garage door will remain closed during the sale so that everyone will stop at the check out table.


Fingers crossed that this goes well, Wendy

As a friend once said, "hells bells", I'm not sure what it means but it feels right. I have just been told that a mug in our garage sale has been selling on eBay for $300 to $400 dollars. The person that told me offered $200 if I would take it out of the sale and ship it to him.

Well I can't be really stupid so I raised the price to $150 making it the most expensive item in our sale. If it sells great, if not I will ship it to the person who told me who is in Florida. Sorry to those who wanted it for the first price.





I hope by letting everyone know on all my posts that no one will make a trip to our home just for this one mug whose price is now higher.

Thank you, danlovestikis aka Wendy

Jungle Bird is open noon until 1 AM on the day of our sale.
Those of us in Sacramento know that we are very fortunate to have this very authentic tiki bar so close by.
Be sure to visit after you are done at our sale. The food, drinks and atmosphere are all you could hope
for so don't miss it.

Address: 2516 J St, Sacramento, CA 95816

==========================

Today we finished stetting up inside.

I set up the two original paintings. Ken Ruzic's is covered with glass but that can be removed.



I put together bags of similar or related items and added them to the sale.





These are located at the back of the garage.


The sale is tomorrow and now it's exciting. I hope we can sleep tonight. Cheers, Wendy

Tiki Mugs: Cult Aritfacts of Polynesian Pop by Jay Strongman

I have one of these books in my garage sale. After being notified of it's "worth". I looked further. While people are asking for $1,000 to $9,000 for one of these books the last one sold on eBay for $195. So the price for my copy, in excellent unread condition is now $85. This will be one of two items in the sale that we would actually make a profit on. The rest are deeply discounted to move out of our garage. I hope you can all make it there. Wendy

Good luck, Wendy and Dan. With such great stuff and incredible pricing, Ill be surprised if youre not sold out in the first few hours. Good thing I decided against a road trip; Id have probably filled the back of my Jeep and have no place to put it all once I got home.

The sale is over and we are exhausted. I will be posting photos on my "other craft's thread soon. It went like this...

7 PM the first people arrive and spend the night in their car.

6 AM the largest number of people start to arrive.

8 AM we open the door and the everyone fit into the garage perfectly. They filled boxes put their names on the boxes and put them on the driveway.

9 AM everyone has paid and is on their way to other places.

9 AM until 1 PM we had only a few people come so it was our pleasure to not only sell items but to give them all a full tiki home tour.

Everyone was delightful. Otto and Baby Doe saw our home for the first time and scooped up boxes of treasure even though they came late.

Now it's time to rest. Thank you all for making our garage sale such a success.

We still have tikis for sale. If you want to come over send me a message, there are lots of bargains still left. Cheers, Wendy

Hammo I believe no one left disappointed. I'm sad that you are.

==========================================

Here is the link to the rest of the photos.

We are still selling tikis off the last four tables. If you want to come by just send me a message. We will box up the left overs on Saturday the 21st. We will save them for the next time we do a tiki garage sale. Until Saturday you still have time to score some tiki treasures at super low prices.

Cheers, Wendy


aS OF 4/18/18 EVERY SINGLE ITEM HAS BEEN SOLD. THANK YOU ONE AND ALL FOR COMING TO THE SALE. WENDY_________________

Wendy, that was cool to see the post develop and Dan was sure brave thinning out that much cool tiki stuff. If I had been anywhere near you I would have slept up against your garage door the night before so I could get the United Airlines piece. One of my 3 holy grails.

8FT Tiki it would have been fun to meet you.

Today the last boxes were picked up.


Not one thing left. Now I can work on my tiki ceramic projects and have all the room I need!



Thank you everyone for making this sale such a success. I'll let you know if we have another one in the future. Cheers, Wendy
