Hello I am Pickle, a tiki mug collector and drinker of fine cocktails...
you can find out about me here: http://www.myspace.com/punkypickle

It would be nice to hear from other tiki people in the UK as well as overseas



Pickle, there's plenty of UK-based Tikiphiles here. Look up on the top right of this page, just below where it says "New Topic" & "Post Reply" and click on [Member List]. Reorder the list by clicking on "From," then click on page 64/65 to find the members from London, then you can look at some of their posts, send a PM or email to say "Hi," or check out their home pages.

Ship Ahoy Tiki-lovers!
In the frost-bitten land of Sweden Tiki-philes have a hard existence. In ten years of high frequent thrift store and flea market shopping I have so far found 3 tiki-mugs. Recently I travelled to California, the heartland of this culture, and came home with mugs, exotica vinyl, fond memories of Bali Hai, Hanalei Hotels Island restaurant, Tiki-ti etc, all in all a much needed refill of Polynesian pop mana.

When I came home I remodeled my room from "Shanghai 30s opium den" to "Shanghai 30s opium pad of a pacific ocean sailor" (to carefully blend in more tikiness in the theme) and also decided to join this community. The user name is a sailor/adventurer from a song cycle of Swedish pre-exotica bard Evert Taube.

If anyone lives in San Diego, check out Kobey's swap meet. I had to leave a absolutely beautifully carved Maori club there (it was to expensive at around 250USD)

Nice to be on the inside,

Fritiof

Howzit tiki fiends! I'm a noobee here (just registered) and I'm trying to figure out how I did not discover this secret society sooner. I hope to meet many of you during the crawl, pre crawl, post crawl, anywhere you like it crawl. Hopefully I'm not to late to join the Sat bus-Oh baby!! If there's a need for bus bartenders I will gladly apply and will not disappoint.

Also is anyone going to be in Monterey this weekend for the spam jam at Laguna Seca? What tiki bars are there in Monterey/Seaside area. Aloha

Just wanted to say hi to the community here. It's been sort of a secret of mine that I've always been interested in Tiki this and Tiki that, and decided recently to purchase my own Tiki Bar/hut for my backyard.
After pricing several, I decided it was an expensive investment for something of decent quality.
Im very impressed with some of the home made tiki bars Ive seen on this site.
Very impressed.
I'm not much of a woodsman, not even remotely qualified to call myself any type of craftsman, but I decided to make a simple Tiki hut, using simple tools, and my limited knowledge and talent when it comes to building anything.
I could cut a straight line, and hammer a nail in straight, but thats about my limits, so my tiki will be rather square, and simple, but I will take pride knowing that I built it.
I will post a pic if I figure out how later in the week of my progress.
This looks like a great place to pick up some decorating ideas, and Ill have my reading cut out for me.
Thanks to the moderators and site organizers for having such a great place to visit.

Hi, I live in Arlington, VA but am originally from Modesto, California and have been interested in Tiki culture for over a decade. Now that I'm older and bit settled, I plan to become more active (previous participation has been limited to visiting bars and purchasing the occasional trinket). The grand scheme is to convert my screen porch into a Tiki hut. This will take a couple of years, however. As things develop, I'll post picture. Thank you for establishing this forum.

Hello all! I practically tripped over this website a couple days ago. After reading many of your posts and reading about The Hukilau coming up, I feel like I have a new home with perhaps some familiar faces. Back in the late 70's, I was a seating captain in the Mai Kai when Mr. Thornton was still alive. The maitre'd was Eddie Tatton (who owns a popular Thai restaurant now)and I worked at the Mai Kai for several years. Many great memories and stories! I have a couple pics that I can scan of me on the job that I will gladly share with you. Who knows? I may have even sat some of the members here at their table in the Bangkok Room or even in the Garden! Anyway, I'm glad to have found this place and I hope to meet you soon!

Aloha,

I am new to this forum. What attracted me was I see items of Frank Schirman posted buy some members. I recently came across this artist and his items and wanted to know more about him. If anyone has any info about this artist or knows where I could get more info would be awesome.

Mahalo

Aloha all, brand new here and I've been Tiki hunting for about 7 years now. I finally joined the board because I'm hosting a retro Tiki Lounge party 4th of July weekend and was trying to find a perfect recipe for 'Zombie Punch.' I've been reading this board for about a year now and I just got bored at work and decided to join. I've also just become obsessed with Tiki lifestyle design and have been going mad on photoshop creating menus, album covers and flyers for this party.

Kia Ora! Long time browser, first time poster. I've been collecting Polynesian ephemera for few years and also have an extensive library on Pacific material culture. I make a living carving stone, shell and glass. I'm looking forward to contributing in future, particularly in the carving subforums.

Hello TCers, and especially those of you I met last night at Forbidden Island. You guys are great fun! Since I'm fairly new to the tiki culture (although I've loved the Enchanted Tiki Room since I was three), I expect my posts will be rather limited for a while, but I do expect I'll be dropping by FI most Wednesdays for a beverage or two! CongaMike -- I'll see you tonight with a bunch of my rum-swillin' gal pals!
