new finds

Whaler's rum, Weeki Wachee and Dinghy Pub glasses

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!

Hello, I'm from the center for all things untropical and it seems you have exceeded the allowed amount of so called 'tropical stuff' on your blog. Heh, just kidding, mom!!! I thought I'd write you a comment so you'd write another post sometime. Come on, it's not that hard, just do it so I can look at something interesting next time I'm at your blog. :P
