Greetings to all at TC, as with many others I have been a lurker and decided that I needed to become an honest member and contribute. Interests in all things Nautical, with a love for the islands and of course TIKI. Since I travel, I have found the information here and on Critiki to be vital for foreign business relations...can you say 'Tiki Tour Berlin'

Thanks to all here and I look forward to getting to know the TC community.

Cheers
NautiTiki

Hey guys and gals..Just wanted to say hello and thought this was a good place to do it. A litle about me. I'm a custom car designer in fL. I also dabble in tiki art..will post a piece for you all once I figure out where to post it.
I have yet to collect Tikis or mugs but I plan on it. Just need to get finances in order first.
Anywho..that is me.

-Doug

Hello Tiki-types,

This is Adam, who some of you may remember (or not, depending on how good a time you had) from the Tiki Bus this weekend. I had a blast and hope to see some of you again soon on a Wednesday evening at Forbidden Island!

Hello,

I have come to this board in hope you Tiki fanatics can help. I was on holiday in Oahu in June and my wife spotted a plate with a tiki on it in the Hilo Hattie shop. We were supposed to go back and buy it later but never did and since then I have been trying to locate the plate. I have tried emailing the Hilo Hattie store but they have never replied .

Which comes to me posting here. I figure that possibly one of the members here may have purchased such a plate and can help me track one down for my wife. It was an oval plate about 20" long and 12" wide. It was about $20 - $25 and had a cartoon type beach scene with a hut and a tiki on it and I remember it being very vibrant possibly with a lot of red. I figure it's the sort of plate that someone here may have taken a liking to.

Where on the board can I post this information? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Paul

Welcome aboard newcomers!
R U Tiki, I'd love top see photos of your bar & art cars!

Mingus, have a great time building a tiki room in your new home, there's lots of inspiration on these pages!

NautiTiki, happy to have you de-lurk! I love the nautical jargon, flotsam & jetsam too.

burningman, Welcome aboard! I'm looking forward to seeing some of your art. You can post your images over on
shutterfly. When you've done that, PM me and I can help you out over on this side if you're having troubles.

RikiTikiTavi, looks like you had a great time at the TC Tiki crawl, glad to see you join up!

pashek, good luck with your plate search

Tons of fun meeting you on Saturday! It's good to see we didn't scare you off! We'll be seeing you at FI!

Paul, where do you live? There's Hilo Hattie's-es in Ca., Vegas, and Orlando, Fl., check for locations on their
website. There's a nice Hilo Hattie's in the Gas Lamp Quarter here in SD, for example.

If you have a picture of the plate you could post the image in a thread in Collecting Tiki. If you don't have a picture you might need to look around in Collecting Tiki & Creating Tiki to see if you could find a picture of a Tiki that matches the image on the plate, you could then post a copy of that image & say "the Tiki looks like this."

Good Luck!

Howdy

I am another one who has been poking around for a while and finally decided to make myself known. I found TC through the offices of TofuJoe and his lovely wife.

I have met an number of folks down at Forbidden Island (Jab, midnite, jentiki, Humu & Hanford and a few others I think) under my mysterious pseudonym of Chris. For their reference I was the object of the strange ritual described by Midnite over HERE:
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?mode=viewtopic&topic=20283&forum=17&start=0

Oh and for those counting I have 11 drinks left to finish from the FI menu

Welcome Baronishiki! I hope to see you soon at FI. Since I was quite tipsy both times I met you (still working my way through the menu), I'm sure you'll have to remind me again who you are the next time I see you. I'm so bad about that stuff! BTW - after my brief visit there this evening, I only have 3 to go.

Hello,

As I noted, the plate was spotted in Oahu. I live in the UK,no Hilo Hattie's here. I wish I did have a photo, it would probably have made this entire exeercise considerably easier! I'll have a look around but my memory of the plate is pretty much limited to the description I gave. I know it's not a lot to work on. I'll have a look in the collecting Tiki section, see if I can jog some memories.

Thanks,

Paul

Hey everyone!

I finally decided to join this site to get in on the info. Many of you might know my older bro, bigtikidude (aka Jeff). Since I am the little brother, I decided to follow the trend and thus my username. I have a great love of anything tiki, surf, tropical, or Hawaiiana, so this is the perfect place for me. I currently am not real in-depth in the surf or tiki scene, but I intend to become very knowledgeable and widely seen.

Keep chilling and live the TIKI life,

Rev. Jacob R. "Lil Tiki Dude" Hanson
