I can't stand that guy!
Wait, what were we talking about?
I want a Virgin Mary bobblehead. It would look great on my tiki bar.

Wow! People really hate Allen! Well, I don't know what is up with the article he wrote, that's not the Allen I met. I've never ordered anything from him, just dealt with him in person. He's a little expensive, but outside of that I thought he was very knowledgable and helpful. The second time I went to his store, I bought a necklace for my girlfriend and a mug. He would not take a credit card or check, of course, but when I told him I had no cash, he just said, "That's OK, you can pay me next time!" Needless to say, he moved before I could ever pay him.

Anyway, it sounds like my experience with Allen was the exception rather than rule, but yes, someone out there DOES have something nice to say about him! Maybe he went nuts or something. It sounds like he's just bitter in that article. From all the negative experiences others have had with him, though, it is clear to me now why I am the only person in all of cyberspace that has a link to his website on mine.




..nice try allen, but we see through this ruse too!!! ...LOL

I'd been feeling quite at ease with myself recently, but now I am gravely concerned that I may be a "hipster," or even worse, a "fadster."

Ha Ha. You got me. I've secretly been flying back and forth between Hawaii and and LA every weekend just so I can deejay at the Tonga Hut every Saturday (shameless plug). Oh, and I've been disguising myself to look taller, thinner, younger, and better looking, too.

This guy sounds like a bigger a--hole now than he was when I met him 4 years ago. But I meant what I said: having hardly dealt with him, he SEEMED like a nice guy, but what the hell did I know?

Hey, since he lives in Hawaii now, that guy Dawg should go after him! Everyone at Tiki Central could pitch in and put up some sort of bounty for him!

Funny thing,
I walked into the guy's store in Ventura and wanted to purchase an Aloha shirt for a friend of mine for a birthday gift,being that he would'nt accept credit cards or atm or checks he let me walk with the shirt without paying ,with the promise I'd pay cash next time. Next time he was gone.
I remember him as being very nice, he had lot of tiki shwag, it was before I was really bitten by the tikibug, so maybe I did'nt pay as close attention to all the tiki stuff as I would today.I still owe the guy for a really nice Aloha shirt that my friend just loved.

He owes me money for product he purchased from me to sell in his stores, so Maybe I paid for your friends aloha shirt indirectly. I'd feel better knowing your friend is happy with a shirt I paid for rather than holding a grudge for money I'll never see.

MauiTiki, you can get his last known address & Cell Phone number off of the Honolulu BBB "Deadbeats" list.

I love the list of "Government Actions" against him:
Quote:
On December 18, 2003 in the Circuit Court of the First Circuit, the State of Hawaii by its Office of Consumer Protection filed a Complaint and Summons, Civil No. 03-1-2519-12 against Allen St. James doing business under several names including Tiki Trader, Island Style Decor & Hawaiiana Traders. It is alleged that Allen St. James failed to deliver goods as ordered or promised, misrepresented the expansion & the opening of a physical store, and failed to disclose the true status of his operations.
The Office of Consumer Protection seeks a Court order restraining Allen St. James from engaging in from engaging in the unfair practices in violation of HRS 480-2 and 481A-3, and order him to pay restitution to every consumer who purchased merchandise from him.

Civil No. 03-1-2519-12 (VSM) (Other Civil Action) On January 20, 2004 the Circuit Court of the First Circuit ordered a Preliminary Injunction against Allen St. James and those persons in participation with him from making available to the public the website at www.tikitrader.com or offering to sell Hawaiian, Polynesian or nautical-themed merchandise and collecting payments from consumers. A hearing on a motion for default judgment against Allen St. James is scheduled for February 19, 2004.

On March 11, 2004 the Circuit Court of the First Circuit ordered and decreed default and final judgment against Allen St. James upon all counts files and all contracts between St. James and consumers regarding merchandise promoted, advertised, or offered for sale are void and unenforceable. Allen St. James is ordered to pay restitution to every consumer, including but not limited to identified consumers, who paid for merchandise St. James failed to deliver. St. James is ordered to pay a civil penalty of Thirty-two Thousand and 00/100 Dollars ($32,000.00)


He's listed as having no assets or income, so I'm afraid it could be difficult to get your money back. If it helps you could always call his step-mom Joni and ask her to intercede on your behalf, she's listed in the phonebook.

That footage is unintentionally weird on more levels that I ever thought possible its like a chimp got a hold of a video camera and went nuts. I love the semi-creeped out look that girl has the whole time shes handing him drinks.
At least all those interested have a face to put to all these wonderful Tiki Trader stories.

Thanks for posting that.

Bosko

All depends on what kind of bar you're fighting in, I guess, but yeah, I generally don't associate tiki with brawling.

I'm not understanding this. I thought Lanikai/Braddah Kimo was kama'aina and always talked pidgin?

I think Lanikai/Mr St James needs to study
this in order to understand what Tiki Central is all about. We are not about "Burpin' with our Buddies" Sir!

Now I'm confused. His photo on the Tiki Central Frappr map is quite different.
