Hi everyone! I've been checking this site fairly often, and am now sufficiently emboldened to start posting.

I live in Portland, OR, at the moment, where it is often too wet & rainy for Lauas, with my boyfriend-who-will-be-my-husband-as-of-next-week. He is the real tiki-hound in the family-- I am more the bringer of tiki gifts and cheerleader of tiki-hunting.

We were hoping to make it to Vegas for Mondo Tiki or Tiki Oasis, but, alas, I think we'll have to wait 'till next year. We are going to San Francisco in a month or so, though, so maybe we'll see some tiki folks when we check out the SF scene!

Welcome TikiMan and Kim. TikiMan, you'll soon hear from a few folks who live right up PCH in Newport Beach. My parents are neighbors of yours on La Vue. Have fun.

Cheers!

Hi all,

I'm new here but TC looks like a fun bunch...reminds me of when the LEGO community first got online in decent numbers back in '95 / '96...but I digress.

Anyway, I'm looking for a few specific things and in general just looking and reading and enjoying.

First, is there a resource somewhere (a directory?) of people who are 'known' for being good tiki carvers?

Second, is there a similar listing somewhere of tiki bars that can be purchased? I've seen the same three or four pop up in quite a few places but am looking for something different / bigger / more elaborate (for an upcoming venture).

I'm amazed at how MUCH tiki stuff goes up for sale on eBay...my SpyScanner account has found over 2000 items in the last 10 days...and that's excluding all of the Tiki Barber stuff that's on there (I have those filtered out).

Anyway, I've purchased a couple of Rain's painting recently (little guys...missed some bigger ones that I had bid on in the past week, darnit) and the little diorama that Tikifish had up there (a gift to a buddy of mine) and then found TC this morning and was amused to see those items referred to in the boards.

So hello from me to you and thanks in general for the existence of TC!

A6

suzywong,
Welcome to TC, how's the tiki scene in New Orleans? I almost took a job there four years ago, but I was dealing with a lot of family shit here in San Diego, so I could't really blast outta here at the time. But things have improved since then and the jobs down there are still beckoning. I know a lot more people from New Orleans now and everything they tell me sounds good.
Aloha,
Shipwreckjoey

Hi Spookilau,

I cruised many of your sites and was way impressed... You will find many kindred 'spirits' here on T.C. including other disneyland (addicts) fans...

welcome!

Hello, I'm new here. Introduced by Melintur and TikiMama, I will be attending the Tiki Crawl in SF this weekend. Yes, I was affected at an early age as well by DisneyLand, as well as several trips to Hawaii.

Wheeeeeeeeeeeee!

I've slipped and gone from lurker to poster already so I better introduce myself. This forum is great!

I live in Phoenix and don't get past city limits often enough so the internet is my connection to the art, culture and cool new stuff you just don't see here.

I got here because at first I was just looking for some tiki mugs, then I found Munktiki on eBay and if that wasn't bad enough I clicked on their link to Shag. Goodbye disposable income. I'm not a true tikiphile yet but it fits with my 40's house, heywood wakefield and day of the dead addictions. Currently, I'm trying to learn to make tiki drinks for a party I'm promising to have!

Wilkommen, bienvenue, welcome, tikimonkey (monkeys are always good!) and Cultjam. I'm pretty new myself, but as I work from home I grabbed the privilege of being the first to say this!

aloha,
emspace
