Nautical ashtrays from Hafa Adai, Guam
I also found a really nice bamboo plant stand in really nice condition, a Bailey's mug, Hawaiian print dress, and I'm sure there's something else, but can't think of it right now!
The CD that I listened to over the weekend while driving around looking for garage sales and stuff: Bongo Rock-Preston Epps.
I visited our local plant shop today looking for a banana tree, but of course they didn't have one. They just got in some kiwi plants that were really cool so I bought one of those. It's a vine and very hardy so it won't die during our freezing winter months. Maybe I'll let it grow up onto my "bamboo awning" I'll have to try a larger nursery for a banana tree. I want to replace the yucky rose bush I have out back. It will look much more "tropical"! I had to bring our carnivorous plants indoors; It's just too darn hot today!! They prefer cooler temperatures.
We got in a new shipment of Tiki Farm mugs at our retail store. That's always fun--displaying them and stuff. They're such great mugs. I got a green Caliente Tropics mugs for myself. I love it!!! It's one of my favorites! I'm always so excited when someone comes in and buys cool stuff. We sold a copy of Tiki Quest, Tiki Road Trip and several copies of Baracuda Magazine today. We've sold most of our Tiki Magazines. I have several copies of Tiki News, but I can't remember where I put them. It must be in one of those "safe places"!! We just got our "Hawaiian order" in. One of the books is 101 Great Tropical Drinks. It's a really nice book with lots of photos. Great drink recipes including "Kaka'ako Swamp Water", "Koko Kava", "Sabuzzo" and "Polynesian Wild Thing" Fun book!! I think it's time for some yummy cool watermellon!
