Resin, like a Coco Joe (but not marked as one)

Hey where is Mr tiki?

Also, Hamo there are three versions of that pick and a small fruit pick too.

I didn't know that, Skip, but I don't think I can be a completionist. The swizzles were the first Kahiki items in my collection, and now I've finally acquired a mug (and I do know there are other glazes):

(and I do know there are other glazes):

And even sizes, that mug when it is an early version is more crisp and a bit smaller. At the end you could not read the Kahiki on the bottom they were so sloppy.

I almost never find anything good in person, but here are a few of my favorite online pandemic purchases...

Bama- nice

Thanks - really wish I had your hunting skills/luck!

No gold left on this Big Shot I just found, but that's okay -- now I don't have to worry about paint damage from washing after cocktails.

Just nabbed this Orchids Of Hawaii "Leafy Hula Girl" mug, at my favorite shop across the street from my parents' house. They were using it to display hat pins. Thankfully the inside does not appear to be chipped!

A good week in the wild for Trader Vic's-related glassware.

Have to say i've picked up a lot over the past couple of years but don't really have photos of it all in my camera anymore but i do have these i've scored within the last two weeks.

And i did find this outrigger a couple of months ago. It had been in the antique store for quite a while and when they moved just recently pretty much all of the stall holders had a sale and this was 50% off so i ending up grabbing it.

That outrigger is killer!

Literally just got back from my lunch break at the same antique co-op where I discovered a complete set of tropical Siesta Ware barrel mugs in near perfect condition. At less than $7 each all told, I really had no choice but to bring them home!

Some various finds, some dating back to just before lockdown!

Today's charity sale finds - finally the drought is broken!

A shirt a bit too small for me, but it fits my Sister's asthetic better than mine anyway.

Recent trip to Colorado netted a couple thrift-store finds:

Rainbow Craft tiki clock IMG_20220521_123308548

IMG_20220521_123436322

Again I'm envious of everyone's finds - But I finally actually found something at an estate sale!

A little damage on the front, they said they think someone at the sale must have pulled the price tag off; otherwise in good shape.

I found this in Auburn, CA yesterday. It's not much, but it's one I didn't have.

As a collector of vintage swizzles, I am going to have to respectfully disagree. That is a score.

An eBay auction posted on the Tiki Swizzle Trade Facebook page a while back may add some context:

It was most certainly the Bob, and not the other more common swizzles pictured, that led to that price.

I guess the dollar I paid for it wasn't too shabby ;)

Man, I've never been so successful in all my years thrifting along the Front Range. May I ask where you found these?

Good looking menu, bama. It reminded of some of the menus posted over in this thread:

https://tikicentral.com/viewtopic.php?topic_id=30245&post_id=796083&start=288#post-796083

My menu says "PRICES INCLUDE FEDERAL TAX OF APRIL 1944", so it's no earlier than that.

Thanks, Hamo! You inspired me to look more closely. I don't see any note about federal taxes, but prices on mine are a little bit higher than on yours. I'm guessing mine must be from a few years later, but the tax note was dropped at some point.

I'll add a link to my pictures in that thread in case anyone is looking for more comparisons; looks like mine is from sometime in between yours and the later one shown.

Found during the TC pause:

Keep on hunting

I was wearing this aloha shirt while running errands in Longmont, CO today, and two different ladies in two different places complimented me. Pretty good return on a couple of bucks, I'd say.

Hamo - if that's all you were wearing then we know why the compliments. :-o Cool shirt!

Just nabbed this coconut mug for $1 at a local charity shop (TNR local feral cat populations). Imprint is by Tiki Soul. Can't seem to find any info on the maker. The Googles do nothing. Any insight?
