Tiki Madness!

More items purchased for my surprising new interest, TIKI! These are all ordered by have not arrived yet.

Not pictured is a Trader Vic's Bartender's Guide from 1947 with 1500 recipes! Whoa.

Below is a Trader Vic's cookbook I scored on Amazon for 50 cents. Dated 1968 with 300 food and drink recipes.



Below: got this cookbook for one dollar on Amazon. It was recommended by a tikiphile on the Tiki Central board. Amusingly, the restaurant wasn't in Hawaii; it was a famous restaurant in NEW YORK CITY! Publication 1970.


below: A vintage Pan Am Jet Clipper advertising poster of Kauai. One dollar from Ebay. This is going to look fantastic framed.



Below: Fabulous "Royal Hawaiian pink" seahorse tiki mug, modern, made from original Trader Vic mold. This baby is 6 inches tall. Your fingers go through the ridges on its dorsal fin.


below: gotta have crushed ice! Purchased a vintage Oster ice crusher, crushes 3 trays at a time.
