Hi Everyone,
New Member here,
I'm Scott and I live in Savannah,
collect vintage Tiki items, bamboo rattan furniture, especially the Ashcraft line of Heywood Wakefield. Especially like large timber bamboo items. Anything bamboo themed ! Here is an antique chinese Bamboo cabinet I acquired years ago
\



I especially like the 2-tiered ikebana vases - made from the large bamboo culms. here is an example: _ I want to grow my own bamboo and make one !



I also collect vintage Tarzan movie posters, especially the large 4'x5' French posters, which have amazing graphics. here is an image of my favorite poster:



I bought this many years - it's a bollywood India production/ rip-off of the American tarzan movies , which stars TURKISH actors, and was released in France -with poster artwork done by French artists - - talk about global !

I just purchased a Rattan plant holder in the shape of an upright standing curved snake with a forked tongue! - about 5 feet tall - in process of restoring it !

I'm looking for a bamboo, pineapple, pagoda themed chandelier. I also collect chinese bamboo root carved sculptures. next project is to start growing moso timber bamboo and build my own tiki bar/ gazebo in the backyard !!

PS: Savannah has the Bamboo Farm and Coastal Gardens, which is hosting the National Bamboo Association conference this year in November !

Ok, enough raving -off to sleep !! with my miniature piebald dachshunds !!

Glad to meet everyone, looking forward to chatting, love seeing photos of other people's tiki rooms, backyards,
Cheers,
scott in savannah and the dachshunds

Welcome - I'm a fan of Edgar Rice Burroughs - and after years of watching Turkish Star Wars and Star Trek I am shocked! that there could be a Turkish Tarzan.

Aloha everyone. I kinda forgot to introduce myself. I'd been lurking on the board for a long time and when I forgot my log-in and password I decided to just make a new one and start participating a little. My only contribution so far has been a sorely lacking attempt at getting the great plains fired up -

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=36829&forum=1&15

As you can see, I live in Nebraska. I'm thirty years old, still in school and renting, so there's not much I can do. I only have a small collection of mugs, but a big interest. I'm at that frustrating point in life where I'm waiting for all the pieces to fall together to start building a permanent life (a tiki bar). I just proposed to my girlfriend and we're getting married next year, so that's a start (and a subtle hint for everyone to get me tiki paraphernalia for wedding presents).

So, as a young newbie in an obviously non-tiki-central area of the big US, if anyone knows of any ideas or helpful hints to kickstart a collection on a student's budget, throw 'em at me any time.

Mahalo.

Well I decided to join after you all got me addicted to tiki mugs about 3yrs ago, the music followed and now of course the bar is now in progress.I wasn't going to post progress pics of it as all my ideas have been stolen straight from these pages and I didn't want to be compared to others....but what the heck. So i'm here now Smuggler Joe and we have named the outside bar now officialy "Smuggler Joe's Emporium of Exotica...Thanks for the addiction folks...

I just signed on to Tiki Central and wanted to say Aloha. I'm in Gainesville, FL and just recently went to my first Hukilau and now I'm suffering serious withdrawal symptoms. Must...have...more...Tiki! I'm an artist and do some fun stuff that I hope to post before long. Cheers!

Greetings!

So glad to find you!!!

I just purchased a 28' Ford Elite motorhome and while it is in the shop, being readied for the road, I have been scouring the internet for resources and ideas to transform it into my own little Tiki haven (or heaven, as the case may be!)....and here you are!!! What a fantastic site!!!

Can't wait to get started and looking forward to sharing my progress and picking the brains of all you brilliant Tikiphiles!

Cheers!

Hello All, I can't believe I found this site today,I haven't even seen a portion of it and can't wait to get to the photo section,but I thought I'd introduce myself.Not a typist for sure so excuse any mistakes.I am here because I've been bitten by the Tiki bug and so much I decided to turn it into a business, but thats not why I'm here.I'm here to learn more of Tiki attitude and to explore the world of Tiki.On the business thing,I rent Tiki Bars and accessories in central Nj.I enjoy dropping of and setting up a bar for others to gather around and relax and party.of course getting paid for it IS a plus.I also set up a bar when my wife and I have guest over for an evening of relaxing.I saw a post somewhere about how the Tiki lifestyle was waining but finding this site with it's huge membership has proven to me otherwise. I hope all is well with you all.
peaceout!
Rick

Howzit? Been lurking off and on for a bit, and figured it's time to go all the way and take the plunge. I was born and bred in So Cal, spent much of my early years in Hawaii. I was lucky enough to have a Dad that worked construction in da islands, and every summer he'd send for us. Tiki is a way to keep the youngster alive in myself, and rum laced cocktails don't hurt either.

Cheers!

Hi, everyone. I'm from the US originally, but I live in the Tokyo area now and just like you I love Tiki pop culture and art. I also love Exotica music. I love going to the Trader Vic's in Tokyo in the New Otani Hotel and will post photos up here or at least a link to my Picasa folder of a visit a few months ago to it. Heck, I guess I can put the link in my intro here as well.

I also have a blog with lost of photos about strange and interesting things I've found in my life here in Japan. It is at:
http://exotic-japan.com
Hope you can check that out as well.

Thanks.

Tom,

Welcome! Konichi-Wa! Spent most of my tour in Okinawa but I was stationed at Camp Fuji near Takagahara in '84-'85, (USMC), and stayed at the New Sano hotel many times while in Tokyo for the weekends...really enjoyed my time there...we did our own version of a Pub Crawl one night...starting at one end of Ropongi visiting each bar, collecting matchbooks, but only drinking at every tenth stop...we got hammered!!! (if you've never heard of the Ropongi District of Tokyo, it's all bars and nightclubs...six to ten story "office" buildings with a different bar on each floor!).

Had a good time on the trains too... The Ginza was amazing! Visited a six-story toy store, each floor was dedicated to different types of toys...record stores were several floors with recording studios at the top...I still have a decal from a new television show that was being launched, "Midnight In Ropongi". The exchange rate was 230-250 Yen to the Dollar...ah, the good ol' days!

Ungawa! Greetings everyone! I've been luking here for a little while and have finally taken the membership plunge. This site is amazing if not a little overwhelming!

I'm a 42 year old graphic artist from the Metro Detroit area. Though I've never been to the islands or the jungle, For many a year I've been facinated with world that is Poly Pop. And thanks to Tiki Magazine, I've been able to get a my fix and find this wonderful site.

I'm looking forward to immersing myself in the lifestyle a little more (a welcome relief from Michigan's woes) and hopefully having something to contribute in the future!
