Nothing But Net
June 22: Calling all vintage Naked Japanese glass fishing floats! Cristino will be back in booth 500 to re-net your balls. Old nets fall apart and become unsafe to hang in your lanai or Tiki bar. Generations of Hawaiians collected Japanese fishing floats that ran astray and took years to travel across the Pacific. Those that missed our shores ended going even further to the Pacific Northwest coast. Cristino does it old style large & small while you wait or be sure to get his phone number. Sunday July 17 at the Hawaii All-Collectors Show!
