Thanks for babbling on Chris.

I would definitely be interested in some stained glass sans tiki. You could always start your own thread in Other Crafts in the Creating Tiki forum. I am sure folks would be interested in art you have already done and your plan for tiki themed items.

Hello all, I used to be an uptight banker/IT type until I got engaged, quit my job, moved to the beach, and went back to school. I am now 2 and a half years married, that was done on the beach at sunset. I am also now three years laid back. I refuse to ever let life get too serious again. I have been browsing the forums for a while and will be making my very own topic soon in the Creating Tiki forum. My turtle had an Extreme Home Makeover. Keep your eyes peeled.

I'm a long time lurker and finally decided to take the plunge. I look forward to actually, hopefully, contributing to the discussion.

Hi there,
I'm de-lurking. My name is Trase, I live about an inch outside of Detroit, and I am a collector of tiki, mid-century, atomic, kitschy type stuff of all sorts.

So I'll look forward to learning lots here!

Cheers,
Trase

Hello to everyone! My name is Heather and my future hubby is Mark. We just built an outdoor tiki bar and having the best of times withit. Just a few finishing touches like hand carved tiki masks, a few chairs and tables that my hubby is making from wood picked up from the beach etc. We have had our first tiki bar party and it was a great success. Any pics of other porples tiki bars? We would love to see them!!

Thanks muchly! Yeah, not much! Sadly, I was too young to have experienced Chin's downtown, and their Livonia restaurant is well...if you've been there, you know. It's cute and I'd go back but it's not the tiki oasis one hopes for, is it? LOL

I find mugs and things while thrifting/junking but only occasionally. I'm in East Detroit, sometimes on this side of town there are good estate/garage/church sales that offer up the rare tiki treasure!

Cheers,
Trase

G'day all,
It's taken me a little while but i've finally registered all the way from Melbourne,Australia.
Not much going on here in the way of tiki,so i need you guys to keep me upto date and entertained.There is one bar here in Melbourne(Tiki Bar & Lounge)that i hang out at regularly,and the Hula Bula Bar in Perth which i plan to visit later on in the year.Other than that,nothing.
But that's O.K.I can mix a Mai Tai at home and talk to you guys.
Till then,
Cheers

Hello All!!!
I stumbled on this site about 3 years ago while planning hubby's tropical birthday party and have been a steady visitor since then. I love seeing all the talent displayed. I have been trying to work up enough courage to put a chisel to some wood. Thanks for all the inspiration!!!

Hey everybody, figured this'd be a good place for my first official post.

I'm a long-time lurker here and at LottaLiving, and figured it was time to finally get a username and start participating.

I'm from West Virginia, not exactly a Tiki mecca, but I've been collecting tikis ever since I was about 14 (while on a trip to Hawaii), and I keep finding myself coming back to tikis in my sketches, carvings, and paintings. Wait, guess I should mention that I'm an artist (graphic design, oil paint, tattoo flash, and carving)!

Look forward to getting involved on here, especially with the Collecting and Creating forums, as well as doing my part to really preserve the place that tiki holds in the history of mid-century living.

Whoops, missed this until I had made my first post. I was drawn in one month ago by the thread about curaƧao. I live in Champaign, Illinois, and am afraid my only tiki cred comes from being a fan of "The Bachelor Pad." I appreciate the advice here, in any case.

Hello All,
I finally took the plunge and got in here after much lurking. My name is Numa and I am co-owner of the Aloha Island Grille here in Santa Cruz CA. I want to start off by sending a big shout out to all you TCers who have visited and supported us over the years. Chongolio thank you for the "unreal" website
www.alohaislandgrille.com and business cards... you da man! Tiki Will at http://www.sctikis.com your work is da bomb. We are so stoked to be able to have a space that reflects the culture of the Islands and all the great arts that have been spawned from the pacific's warm waters.
After three plus years here, we have been working to update the joint some. We have a new bamboo floor in the sunroom, our back area has a cement floor and awesome custom rock wall, (thanks to Theron for the individual rocks and stuff.) The final phase is to add some more "tikification" to the place. We would love any advice, ideas, and/ or suggestions... ect.

New Sunroom Floor


Part of the Rock Wall


The front of the sunroom with an Awesome SCtiki's creation


Wall 'O Spam (we sell alota' Spam)


If anyone knows a good source for glass fishing floats lemme know. Thank you all in advance for the input, I look forward to hearing from or meeting y'all!!
Cheers,
Numa
