Again, thanks to Tikiskip and all of the previous posters who excel in Urban Archeology. I never visited the Kahiki but the story is an epic that intrigues me. Now to buy the book...

Thanks Mr. Velvet.
TC is nothing without the many people who post info as they find it.

Have run into may types that don't want to add a photo of a Kahiki item because
they are going to write a book and want to save the photo of said item for the
book.(I've met five people who "are going to do a book one day", One has come out)

Then there is the I don't want people to know what this item is so I can hopefully find
it as they pass it up.

Also the I'm just here to promote my own, Art, Event, Sale, and will add very little if
anything over the years.

All of these types do have one thing in common as they all benefit from others who do add to TC.
They benefit from people who do add to TC like...Sabu, Dustycajun, Monkeyman and Sven just to name a few.

The Kahiki had more diverse items than any other tiki bar out there at any time. IMHO
The first generation Kahiki had so many people making and adding their own tiki art to this place.
This along with the many professional types like Oceanic Arts, Courbn Morgan, Hoffman Pottery and
many more.
It is good to give credit to all who made these items and let their contribution's be known, put a face to the art work.

I had a restaurant and it was my greatest art installation I have ever done, the day after I
sold it my name was wiped form the history of that place, Hack my family helped wipe my name out.
So it's a soft spot to me.
And the whole tiki thing.

This is part of the reason I started this thread to show the many Kahiki items that where made
over the years and who made them, and to highlight the early Kahiki art types that put their
heart into the Kahiki they built.

I must admit that I was hoping to get more people adding things to this thread over the years
so all could see an odd Kahiki thing never before seen.

Add what you can when you can and pay it forward.

Keep up the good work Skip. Your thread is one of the reasons that I signed up to TC ten years ago and threads like yours make me stick around. These places would be a hollow memory with only dusty artifacts and faded postcards to reminds us of how great they were without people as dedicated as you. You have taken the time and put in the effort to tell the stories of the many folks who have given so much to make the Kahiki a legend in its own time and one that still rings true today. These tiki temples may have fallen and their idols cast down and relegated to flea market fodder but the stories are still told and retold because of folks like yourself. Thanks

Thank you trav!
You definitely add to TC.

Love your bomb posts and your miniature tiki huts you make.
You are one of the "others who I did not note here"

Keep posting and adding to TC as nobody would watch a TV channel with
nothing but commercials, and the same would be of a TC that is nothing but adds
for what folks maybe trying to sell.
