introducing myself a little late.

my name is frank and I am addicted to tiki.

I don't remember how I became an addict, it started a little at a time. It went full-blown after my first visit to vic's in emeryville.

Now we went and bought a house that I can turn into a tropical paradise, an eichler. luckily my wife loves this stuff too

in the time I don't spend trolling for tiki, I am a writer at a high-tech company in San Jose.

ciao

my wife thinks i'm insane,but i plan to transform my backyard into a tropical tiki garden. any ideas on exotic or tropical plants that thrive in zone 8? willing to trade plants for plants.



i'd get a new wife just kidding.
Actually I'm looking into doing my backyard too. I've been checking into the plants we can grow here and not worry about freeze or drought. I know bananna plants are good, but they have to be cut down after the first freeze. ferns, caladiums (sp), and elephant ears are great plats. I also have a collection of cacti and century plants my wife got from her ranch in west texas. I'll keep you informerd on what I find. I hate to plug my site here, but if you go there and click on the lounge section, you'll see some back yard projects I have going on. Oh, BTW the camper is a no go, just haven't had time to take it off the site... too busy scouring TC!
So any luck on finding mugs and such? There is a section in Collecting tiki where you can post that. There is also a thread in TikiEvents called Dallas Tikiphiles. check it out as well.

Aloha All!

I'm Paul and I own Pariarts.com - we make tiki signs and other art.

My partner Richard and I used to have a tropical paradise that was the hit of the L.A. party scene, especially with Disney folks.

We moved to Sacramento last year and have a new home we call Martiniland. We have a big workshop and we run
http://www.pariarts.com from here.

We love tiki stuff and we're in progress with a tiki backyard - it's an evolving project!

Cheers

Welcome Paul. Nice stuff.
I'll have to come see you sometime. I sold a tiki to a cop up there in Sac a couple months ago. Maybe we could do a trade after February when I replenish my stock. Cool signs. I like stuff that's different, particularly the alligators.

Welcome Paul,

I've been drooling over your websites' offerings for months. Once our basement bar & outdoor deck are finished, we'll be calling you for the final touch. Glad to see you're on TC.

HI! my name is Jennifer, I used to post to Tiki Central a long time ago.. I mean before I met my husband, maybe 4 years ago, back when it was on Yahoo. Anyway I became so wrapped up in day to day life that I stopped reading posts (I never posted alot, but used to read frequently) anyway, I went to check it out and saw it had moved! I'm so ashamed that I didn't know! I signed up over here now and am looking forward to getting back to reading your lovely posts once again!

(P.S. I'm the one that wanted an idea for a tiki engagment party cake... I think that was the last thing I posted, might remember that, might not (:)

Hello all! New guy Skip here. I'm very glad to have found this outstanding website. My interest is mainly in the Tiki lounge/exotica music of the 50's and 60's but also have a passion for the art, food and beverages of the culture.

I look forward to getting to know everyone in this virtual island paradise.

Best,

Lt. General Clement "Skip" Bombwell (RET USAF)

Hello all! after watching my wife (tikicleen) browsing thru the site for the last few weeks, i figured i'd go ahead with my bad self and join up. i love the site and all that is tiki so it was a natural fit! I'm also into vintage clothes and hats (fedoras i thought i should clarify so your not thinking it was a red feathery cap). i have about 150-200 shirts from the 40s 50s& 60s so some trading is not out of the question! hope to see you all at the sf bar crawl!!
