Hi,

My name is Steve. My interest is in quality velvet art, with an emphasis on Polynesian. Some of the artists I have collected are Leeteg, McPhee, Erwin, Cece Rodriguez, Behan, Cohen, Tyree, Askew, Bouvier, and Lavaisse. Artists that I am looking to acquire are: Gerald T. Eaton, John DePonce, Marcellus Bades, and Mike Dameg.

Filipino and Native American subjects also hold an increasing interest for me, and a great Elvis or Jesus portrait will inevitably be added down the road. Polynesian art and artifacts collecting has been my passion for 30 years, but velvet art is a relatively recent interest. If you share a similar interest or are looking to sell any of the same, I would be interested in talking to you.

My email is:
sronan2002@yahoo.com.

Regards,
Steve

McTiki-

I'm from CT - so I'm excited to build my little indoor hideaway in the upcoming year.

Hi all! I've been lurking for about a year now, after I started planning my own tiki room. I've made much more progress on learning about tiki drinks and exotica than actual construction/decorating, though. Not that I'm complaining...

I just went to the Tikiyaki Orchestra show at Don the Beachcomber last weekend, and had such a good time that I had to make an account.

Thanks already to you all for your insights and knowledge! There are probably lots of other people like me out there who have read lots here, but haven't participated... yet.

Hey All!

My name is Amber and I found this site while googling Witco information. I think I've got the Tiki itch now. I'm going to go home and take pictures of the pieces I do have that were handed down from my Mother-in-Law.

I'm creativenative my name in the Tiki world of the Web. I'm from Hawaii and part-Hawaiian but reared in both the U.S. mainland (Washington State) and the Island of O'ahu. My strong interests and study for many years are ancient and modern Hawaiian architecture and Hawaiian & South Seas movies & TV (member of the South Seas Cinema Society for over 20 years). Oh , and I also work in the film industry as a member of the Directors Guild. I found this great site a couple of years ago but not until now did I sign up. I've learned much with the vast knowledge of many TC members and I also hope to contribute much to the forums from my prospective and experiences. Mahalo - Long live Tiki!!!!

Hi, all ... new guy, here. I have referenced Tiki Central many, many times, but haven't joined until now. I live in the Detroit area, where I have little more than Chin's in Livonia to feed my need -- so if there are other Michiganders on here who know anything I don't, please clue me in.

I am currently working on a little tiki hideaway in the basement ... just to keep me busy until I win the lottery ... which I will then spend on opening a tiki palace, al la the Mai-Kai, for us tiki-starved northern folks.

If there are any other Detroiters of the tiki persuasion reading this ... is there anyplace around here to get decent 4- or 5-inch bamboo poles, or are we doomed to ordering online?

Thanks!

hey everyone my name is angie and i've (finally) just signed up. i thought i signed up awhile back but apparently not. i've been "lurking" as they say since last year's tiki oasis.

obviously a big fan of tiki... since, i duno forever. i think it originated from a love of hawaii, and the tropics in general. i loved tiki oasis. 2011 was my first time. can't wait to go this year! i'm already planning my outfits. ha. (chicks.) i live in san diego, not far from the crowne.

so...yeah. hi

angie
