Don't burn signs.
Just cut off old wrong number add new right number to the top
on another sign with right number.

The back story will make these the signs people want in the future.

Actually, I'm gonna re-route them correct on the back and sell them at the next International Tiki Marketplace at Don the Beachcomber on October 10th!

So, if you feel like showing the first Don the Beachcomber address you can or you can fool your friends with the address 2 doors down and flip it over!

2 signs for the price of one!

See ya'll at Don's on October 10th!!!

p.s. the No Tiki Drama signs went so fast that I'll have a few more next time for those of you who missed out. MAhalo!! to everyone who visited us today!!

Ha! does Dons have one hanging now?

Are you going to do a "No white walls" one next?

Skip! "No White Walls" is in the works!

I ran out of the No Tiki Drama signs before I could give one to Don's wall.

What an INCREDIBLE day at Don the Beachcomber's international marketplace yesterday!
So many Smiles! So many Sales! So much OHANA in the house!
and with the new improved air-conditioning and Awesomely helpful staff
vending was a (pun intended) Breeze!
Visitors were non-stop and there was a HUGE line of folks outside before the event even began!
Heard it was the BEST and BIGGEST turnout EVER in their History!
Which says a LOT!
Thank you ALL,Don's,the staff,all you talented vendors and musicians and entertainers
a Great BIG MAHALO for showing your support for this building that holds so many memories and smiles for us all!
Will be there on October 10th to repeat this wonderful experience...
hope to see y'alls there!

Sad to say that with all the crammed people, on top of the staff nagging us to death that there even WAS a marketplace (why else would I be there?), and the open doors letting the outside heat indoors, topped with my fussy 2 year old, we didn't make it inside the actual marketplace. I can't believe the lot was full by 10 and that people made a fuss about free shot glasses.

How would you venders and attendees say the event went, overall? In my eyes when I read "biggest one yet!" I thought booooo. Much like Disneyland I'd rather have the place empty rather than packed, so that I can not be shuffled around with the rest of the cattle. I'm sure vendors think the opposite, however.

One of my first ITMP purchases was an ALOHA
bench, but it hasn't weathered well. Time to upgrade!!

(I've since invested heavily in Marine Spar)

Yes. The sun eats everything now days. It's best to keep them out of the weather or like you did, invest in Marine Spar

Yep, as a vendor, it was great. Fantastic to see so many new faces. Its a lot of work to set up at the event and more attendance makes it more likely that I can recover my cost. I feel your pain though in trying to get through the crowd with a toddler.

For me though, this has never really been a lucrative event, but rather has been a way to get together with the Tiki Ohana and show support for one of the last venerable tiki bars we have left.

So although I wish everyone success in the Elks Club Ohana, because we have been forced to choose, I personally I have decided to continue to support the Dons Marketplace.

As a first time vendor, I was very pleased with the event and I plan on vending at the next one. I would say if you don't like the big crowds, you might want to come a little later in the day. It really died down by about 2PM.

The AC has been upgraded. Workers were loading a new rooftop unit on that morning so it should be quite comfortable for the October event.
