I really want that SHAG bracelet for my girl, can't make the shows. If any one has an extra or will get one at the next show, I have some great Tiki and SHAG to trade. Or will buy.

I just pulled up my ebay account and see that eBay pulled all of the Shag Wahine prints that were listed yesterday. Interesting....

I had a fun time at the La Luz gig...
Lines, Lines, going thru my mind...
But, whadda you expect.
La Luz is a store/ art gallery with a shit load of merchadise. You have to maintain some type of security and retail supervision.

I was mainly there to get the Von Franco "Smoken Joe" set. After I made the deal... I had a couple of maitai's, took in some Dynotone tunes, and had a blast.

It was nice to see the TC familia again.
Three Cheerz,

Whadda you think of Shag's new Shaggy Doo?

Hey Holden,

The new "All About the Tiki" stuff looks really cool! I have a few questions about it I hope you can answer.

Is the Pizz Outrigger real wood, hapa-wood or some other resin/material?

What are the approximate oz sizes of the Emperor and the Rower mugs?

What size are the "Night of the Tiki" mugs?

Thanks,

Tiki Goon

Oh sorry Ben! Tiki Steph and I got to the show very very early, and we got to see them setting up the displays before the mugs showed up. We were admiring your handiwork, and hoping that we could one day be a proud owner of one of your bars. Nice job!

Hi everybody,
Feelin' your pain but the Farm is here to help! Anybody that knows us is familiar with the fact that we take good care of our customers. Smeared eye's... replaced... overcharged... we eat it or replace it and take care of it. We've always done the right thing... I like you am a collector and I do this whole thing for the passion. I don't think that La Luz was prepared for the crowd but I know that if I had done a better job of coordinating the production that it would have been easier. Unfortunately, we needed just a few more days to get the production runs completed as we had to do some last minute re-tooling and that threw the timing completely off.

There were a small amount of the Shag 3-pack sets at the show and those first few in line should have received theirs - that's why it's up on eBay. There's no "insider" selling going on - there never has been.

I'm here for my fellow tc'ers and for that matter anybody who attended the show. We need about 2 weeks to get all of the production completed and will ship your orders in the order that they were taken at the show in numerical sequence. You can call me anytime.

On a separate note, I was glazed over tired but had a really good time and it looked like everyone (almost everyone I guess) was having a blast, too. I wondered why my head hurt so much the next morning - I only had 2 mai tai's. As I've read, I think 2 mai tai's was probably enough. Thanks for the tremendous turnout and I'll work hard to get you all taken care of to a level that exceeds your expectations.

Mahalo,
Holden

ps - if any of you want to come by the Farm (we're in San Clemente) as mentioined, no problem - I just need a day or 2 advance notice so that I'm ready for you (all tc'ers and tiki fans always get the nickel tour) - you can call me at (949) 940-1006

A great event, but definitely poorly organized. Way too much time spent standing in line, but the music helped and all of the art was great. I really wanted to buy it all. I am still kicking myself for not getting that outrigger set, despite the fact that I have no place to display it and was having a hard time justifying the $250. But I love my Cockeyed Tiki Bush Warrior, and have to wait for my Shag mug.

Looking at my invoice, though, I noticed that they did not take down my name and address. How are they going to ship my mug without my address?

As Holden posted above you, he'll make everything right. Call him or email him today and he'll take care of you and give you the information that you are seeking. He does an outstanding job over at Tiki Farm taking care of all of our concerns!

Hey Ben did you do make that super cool Moai bench next to where the Pizz was sitting? It was quite impressive in a strange Witco/von Franco way. I have to figure out a place to put that in the future.

I mentioned to the Pizz about not getting my outrigger signed and he kindly gave me his phone number and said to call him after it was delivered to set up a time to come by his place to get it signed. He told me to go pick it up to get the full affect. It must've been like 20#. Quite cool!

At two hours in line it was better than the Disney event.

I've been to quite a few really big events at Luz and have never seen it botched like this. They've never been very organized, but still; drive there, wait to get parking, walk a really long ways, wait to get in the store, wait to get to the back, wait to get to the front, wait to get to the back, talk to the artists with nothing to get signed except the show card, fight to get out of the store, drive home. I'm glad my non-tiki friend who kindly volunteered to come along was very, very patient.

------------------------------------------
You mean the "Vitco??" Oh, why yes I did!

Thanx for the respect Andrew and Paranoid!!

The other bench and table too!! (we call it the Vitco series. Think of Sven saying Witco!! plus the love of my life's name starts with V so, Vitco is it!!!)

Then the 3 "wall fillers too!" the cut out black tiki crap framed in Boo)

and the pedistals.

Ooops. Almost forgot the bars..........

The Pizz Bar- Pizz was in a show many moons ago at Copro/Nason and had a painting that had a tiki bar in it. That tiki bar always stuck in my mind. This bar was made to look like it was used, out of that painting, many moons ago. Pizz is cool! His "Bar Fight" paintings kick serious ass!

The Von Franco Bar- Von (oh no!!! Ben's taking the pizzas out of the oven @ Barry's pad) Franco is built for speed! I had to build this one to look like it was going fast! (the bar was actually tilting sideways, like a burn out, man!!) (I bet this tripped out you drunk people!!) And, of course FLAMES!!!! Von Franco. Von Franco. Von Franco! (when are we going to Barry's again??)

The SHAG Bar- What better than a 1/2 a bow tie top w/ carved in Shagish Bamboo, dry brushed background and a few Bamboo sticks off kilter on the front!! With a V- shape base!! Man, had a blast on the Vitco bench with him discussing his new doo ( Johnny Lydon hair!!!! And, the Bamboo Suit he made for me!!!!!!)

Thanx again. It was kind of a grind for Mrs. Boo and I, but, "We did it all for the Tiki?"

p.s. Argggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg!!!!!!

Lets just say your stuff was so perfect for the event that it was a seamless marriage of art, artists and atmosphere.

If yer stuff hadn't been there, we would have all thought the atmosphere sucked.

Brilliant stuff, fit the evening like a glove.

You all have so much luck to get the chance to visit a so great show.

I wish I had the money to come over to the usa for every cool tikishow.

Does anyone of you taking some picture, which she/he can upload here in this forum, please.

I had intended on taking more photos but got caught up in the excitement of seeing all the incredibly cool stuff. Here are a few photos that I did manage to take of some of the key players that made this great event possible...


"The Pizz" creating a little personalized art on one of my mugs.


"Shag" with his new shaggy doo.


"Von Franco" looking cool.

Our very own, smogbreather, the man behind Tiki Farm.

Thanks guys for your great efforts! I wish I had the tiki budget to have purchased one of everything. Keep up the great work!
