Not vintage but...
ANYTHING LEBOWSKI!! Lebowskifest posters, t-shirts, special edition dvd sets, figurines... I even went as far as bidding $300 on his outfit from the "Gutterballs Dream Sequence" but was outbid.

Did you happen to see the episode of Ace of Cakes where they made a cake for Lebowskifest?

If not you can watch it on Hulu.com. Let me just say it was the biggest severed toe ya ever did see!

On the subject of "Nostalgia," and not necessarily tiki, I see that Disney today announced a new bar coming to the Boardwalk resort. Given the current popularity of tiki-style drinks at the resorts, I wouldn't be surprised to see something tiki-ish on the drink menu. When this new bar opens, I will certainly look for some tiki drinks. This new bar is nice in that it is also highly themed, something which it will have in common with the highly-themed tiki bars we all enjoy so much. The comments on their web site indicate a planned opening in January 2017. Details below.

I've pasted the entire article, with photos, because the Disney blog pages eventually expire and disappear.

Cheers!

All in the Details: First Look Inside AbracadaBar at Disney’s BoardWalk
July 20, 2016
by Jennifer Fickley-Baker, Editorial Content Manager, Walt Disney World Resort
https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2016/07/all-in-the-details-first-look-inside-abracadabar-at-disneys-boardwalk/



Today we’re happy to share with you the first look inside AbracadaBar, a new cocktail lounge that will soon open for business at Disney’s BoardWalk Resort.


AbracadaBar at Disney’s BoardWalk AbracadaBar at Disney’s BoardWalk

When it comes to describing this new location, “magic” is key. As the story goes, this little lounge was a former stomping ground for the famous magicians, boardwalk illusionists, and lovely magician’s assistants of the Golden Age. After a show, prestidigitators would gather to “conjure” up new cocktails, swap magic tips and tricks, and stay up all night attempting to “out-charm” each other with their extraordinary illusions. According to BoardWalk lore, it was on just such an evening that every single magician in the lounge vanished into thin air, and was never seen again …

Now, after sitting vacant for nearly seventy years, the secret magician’s lounge is now back in the spotlight and making its world debut as “AbracadaBar.”

Once inside, guests will get a special peek at the sophisticated social club of some of the most famous illusionists of the 20th century. While it’s rumored that the magicians who frequented the lounge vanished without a trace decades ago, their magic still remains strongly intact, and can be seen, heard, and savored in the bar’s signature cocktails. From its enchanted magic show posters and mystifying mirrors, to vintage props and tricks left behind years ago, AbracadaBar promises to be just as surprising and magical as its name suggests.

Keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for more details on this curious new location.

I came to tiki via some of my other nostalgic interests, specifically classic cocktails (and barware) and mid-century Disney. Some other interests include (in no particular order):

Trains
Old time radio (favorites include Fibber McGee and Molly, Gunsmoke, Yours Truly Johnny Dollar)
World's fairs
Classic movies and classic Hollywood
Early 20th century architectural movements (Craftsman, Art Deco, Streamline Moderne)
1920s-1950s automobiles (aesthetics, mostly; I couldn't talk about how they work)
Most forms of early jazz (Dixieland, Big Band) and mid-century popular music before Rock and Roll (crooners, girl singers, "easy listening" stuff) and a real guilty pleasure in Lawrence Welk

Hamo, I share a lot of your interests. My oddest one, in some eyes is my passion for ferns and exotic plants. I have quite a collection and they fit well with tiki. The drought is making it tough here in the West though.
Cheers
