Thanks for the fine pictures heylownine, I don't think I have seen Lucas this happy in a while
he was playing the music he loves.

Great to see Ben, Doug, Kinny, BigToe,Tiki Al, Sven, Tony, All of the Ding Dong Devils
Go Tiki, HappyChi, Roger, Hotiki, Matt, Jason and everybody else in the same room, doing what they do.

Hope Maui Rose is enjoying her new Mug Shelves, Too.

Hope you all got some good deals
Keep it Tiki, ya all!

true enough! I have loved hawaiian music since the early 80's, when I lived there. That love has never gone away! I just consider myself lucky to play it, and to play it at DONs! (which like the other poster said, makes me feel like there is a hawaiian beach right across the street!)

Fun day for sure! I had numerous Gin and Tonics (I Know, a tiki speciality!) and the food was great as usual!

Thank you Dons, thank you Art Syder, Thank you Soccer, thank you vendors, and thank you friends!

And THANK YOU to The Smokin' Menehunes!!!! Bong, Mick and Pat, you guys are great!!! You really set the mood and tone for our event! I can't tell you how many people came up to me and said the music was perfect!!! And putting you guys in front of the waterfall in the Hidden Village was like putting icing on the cake! (A perfect match!)

What a great event: To see the two back rooms used and filled to capacity was wonderful! Great authentic Tiki environs, amazing Tiki art and wares, good friends, yummy food and drinks, wonderful music...what more can one ask for!









I was thrilled to sell my ole 60s Tiki longboard to Art for decorating Don's:




(My Rav pretending to be a "Woody" in front of Don's)

But even as a vendor, one has to watch out to not leave the money one made at the other tables!
I can never resist the vintage look of Lake Surfer's carvings:



...and so I walked away with this cool rope-framed Kon-Tiki mask:



..and also inexplicably fell in love with Tiki Al's resin cast of this Coco Joe's classic :



Thank You SoccerTiki and Art for putting on another great Tiki Marketplace!



P.S.: Please do yourself a favor and go back to the previous page to view heylownine's most EXCELLENT eye candy images of all the folks and fun at this event!

You are VERY welcome Chris! Thank you so much for having us!

And Sven, that picture of you leaning against the bar has just got to be on the backflap of your next book!

My bf Donny and I had a great time while we could... as some of you know, he had an allergic reaction and we had to leave for about an hour.... but we managed to return and snag a few great items before the event was over. Cant wait to see and buy more at the upcoming tiki events! Great job to all that were involved.

What a Great Tiki event that Soccer Tiki put together , Ohana was in the air. Thanks to all the Tiki people that attended, in one of the nicest Tiki Bar and restaurant around that serves a variety of Tiki drinks and great food -DON THE BEACHCOMBER-. What a great variety of items for sale, with some of the best Tiki Artist around. Be sure to set the date of April 1 for the next International Tiki Market place at DTB. It was like being in Hawaii with the great Hawaiian Band that played. Also , a new shipment of
Gecko Tiki mugs will be at the next show . This event is like being in Hawaii with music, food, drinks,
and a great assortment of Tiki Items. Thanks again Chris "SOCCER TIKI" for providing Southern Calif. close and affordable with this event.

Sunset Beach, California...it was a nice day outside and really great inside Don the Beachcomber! If you couldn't make it, here's some more of what you missed @ the ITMP.


















Yep, all that and a birthday cake too!!
