hey Tiki David

In response to your message: Hello ,Tikijunkman, was that an offer to buy ,trade or adopt?



Most likely adopt or trade. I have been reading your posts lately on this new find of yours. I think you are looking for a specific price that your items are worth but that is really hard to do. To most people in the general population, tiki stuff is not a sought after commodity (from my experience). To most people on this board, it is highly prized... not in the sense of money but in the sense of preservation, sharing, and documenting. I just don't think that you are going to find a post giving you a price for your items. I would really love to see some pics and want to give you a big congrats on your find!

The canoes and large items like that are very hard to sell. They are simply too large for most to use. A bar could use it, but not much else. For the authentic stuff, an occasional museum will buy, but, that's also rare.

Yea I gotta agree with the statement "Large tiki items are tough to sell", I've also been told that "there is no established value on large Tiki items as there are on mugs".
I've had some offers on my stuff from here in PA, However as it is not from a large national chain its really hard to get any sort of provances, or proof that they are from where I say they are. I have hunted antique stores, flea markets and talked to other peoples folks that have been in the area.
Unfortunatly it seems that most smaller/local tiki/polynesian resturaunts that are gone are just that gone, lost from collective memory (look into the red light)
We recently threw a baby shower for a close freind and her husband and were told about the "Hu Ke Lua" somewhere near pittsburgh, I have a highball glass from there and thats it, no info other than that someone had been there a long time ago.
As far as the Connely Inn where I got my large tikis I have no pics or memorys from anyone to back it up.
Good luch with yer find its awsome!
