I can see why! Is this camera going to be a 'symbol' of your 'personal freedom'?
Cool find!

I found this big ass Witco Ship sitting by a dilapidated trailer home along with a bunch of rusted kitchen items. No one was by it so I knocked on the shack and some guy in his underwear brushing his teeth answered and said I could have it for 10 bucks. With a little Scott’s Liquid Gold I restored it to its former glory.





Big enough for other tikis to set sail to the land of milk and mai tais

I finally found something worth posting on this thread.



Notice the suave gold tooth, and his teeth chatter when you pull the tab on his head. Score.

Just found one of these Coleco Galaxian table-top games at Value Village for $5. And It works great!

This one pictured here isn't mine. Mine is actually a bit more beat up, but has all the stickers and still looks pretty good.

On that same trip I also found a black velvet painting of a tropical scene that will look great in my tiki bar (when I finally have one). I'll later try to post a pic of that and the black velvet painting of a chimp playing poker that I got 2 weeks ago.

I got this bull in a package deal with some other wood stuff.

A rough-hewn symbol of male power and stamina mounted on shag carpet...yeah, baby, yeah! The back shows that there may be red fabric under the black shag.

Also thrown in was this Western scene:

I don't know if either are Witco but I like the bull in any case. An odd thing about the Western scene is that the back of the piece is surface-burned where it wouldn't even show.

This week I found a hermetically sealed estate sale that was like unearthing a time capsule and in a desk drawer the basement found a treasure trove of those rock and roll belt buckles that they use to sell in head shops when head shops were in malls (Still trying to figure out the band with the rose though). Now if I could only find one of those posters of the old lady flipping the bird it would be like high school all over again.

That's an awesome find Nauga. I don't ever wear belts but I'm always looking for buckles. My favorite is a 1979 Incredible Hulk made by Lee.

Naugatiki-- I don't know what you're planning on doing with them, but they can bring a pretty penny on eBay, doncha know... About a year ago, I sold a Queen "News Of The World" buckle for more than $150, and a Zeppelin "Swan Song" logo buckle for $80.

Any way you can post a close-up of the 'rose' buckle?

Tikijackalope, great finds! Yes, they are both Witco. As for the burning, the whole piece was burned at the Witco factory, of course, before being painted, so that's why there would be the traditional "Witco burn" on the back. I only have the book on the Witco process, but Keigs20 could probably give you more insight on the process if you need details. In any case, listing the Western scene as a Witco on Ebay would be telling the truth.

Naugatiki-I believe the rose belt buckle is Santana-I had a t-shirt from the album "Festival '77" from them.I'm pretty sure.

Thanks for the comments guys, I also have a Wings buckle that I forgot to scan. A Google confirmed that the rose is Santana.
I can never figure out how someone can practically give away something with such obvious value for nothing, but that what keeps me going and willing to wade through a ton of Happy Meal toys for one Westwood tiki mug.
