I had posted this in another thread a while back and thought it belonged in the catalog. Thanks to Tikiskip for all the information. The Grass Shack was owned and operated by the owners of the Kahiki. The Shack burned down and the great Kahiki rose from the ashes.

Those matches are great! I remember Bill saying that they were the first ones to have the raised boob matches. I had never seen them so I thought he was mistaken.
But whoomp there it is. Thanks UT.
Ok here is some new old Kahiki stuff pics.


These are some sheilds like the ones in the entry way.


This is a light I am rehabing for the Tropical Bistro.
After pics to follow.

This light needs some help.
But we can look at this light and know how to make a
duplicate. Cool design.

Here is a tiki that stood to the left of the Kahiki.
This used to be a garden area.
They took out the garden for parking.
He is concrte and his eyes used to light up.
Thanks for the trade Hula cat.

This is what I always called a Firefish.I don't know who told me thats what
It was called. Let me know if I'm wrong.
These were on the roof of the Kahiki. They are 8' long by 2.5' high.
They seam to be made of 1/8''thick aluminum.
I just found out that the first Firefish were made of plywood.
There were two styles. and one pelican at the front.
The pelican is a symbol of a plentiful supply of food.
And the fish are symbolic of good food.


This is Bill Sapps desk.
very cool design.

Wow, Skip, you must have taken over their whole warehouse! It's good to see that at least, even though the place could not be saved, so much of its artifacts ended up in appreciative hands. Too often they disappear to that great mysterious Tiki "Elephant graveyard" in the sky.

Did any of the Tiki tiles around the entrance (see BOT p.147) make it? And how about Lee Henry's desktop, which had a map design embedded in resin? I know Jeff got that cool "Hi-Tiki" from it (also p.147)....

That stuff is not all mine. The desk went to bills daughter.
The walls,Lees desk and the bulk of the Kahiki stuff went to
one other buyer.I was able to take pictures of it all.
I am just trying to document all of the stuff I have, or have
seen.
We all know that as we sit here today this stuff is fadding away.
Breakage, fires, theft, WATER DAMAGE, And people just throw it away sometimes.
So if we put it here at least it will be here for all to know what was.
I know when people post pics of old tiki joints I look for the lights.
These photos give me ideas on how to make the old lights.
Also how to trim out a bar.
And on those tiki tiles in the entrance I think those were by a company
called Pan-L-Art. They are still around today. But do not make those
any more. They went down with the ship.www.tectum.com
And on that statue. I was bidding on that against Jeff! Before I knew him.
But he flashed those cute puppy dog eyes at me so I let him have it.

Hi tikiskip, you got the desk tops mixed up as I'm sure you meant to say Linda Sapp got her dad's (Bill's) desk top. The map/desk top is in storage waiting for it's place in Vermont's future home tribute bar/palace(?) to the Kahiki (and all things Tiki). The photo of the lower portion of Lee Henry's desk as seen in "The Book of Tiki" (page147) will be faithfully copied and matched to the original top. The Pelican and some other fishes will be along the roof of the addition( as the Kahaki). TikiCat67 and I are working on plans while researching possible construction methods that can fit in our budget AND faithfully honor the history of the Kahiki (there will NOT be any Walgreens nearby!). I hope soon to be able to post photos of the desk top and much more. Thanks John, Sven (and others) for your dedication while fostering the aloha spirit.

Boink! You are right. I have changed The names to
right that wrong. Thank you.
And yes do post pictures. I would love to see Lees desk again.
And if all that stuff got damaged that would be that.
Never to be seen again.

Now we have some chopsticks and some toothpicks.



Last is a napkin and the back of the chopsticks.

Hoffman pottery was one of the first makers of the Kahiki mugs/bowls.
This is Eric Hoffman son of the man who started Hoffman pottery.
He is holding a mystery bowl.


This is the Idols cast bowl and the mystery bowl.
The mystery bowl is the larger of the two.
Eric got this mystery bowl from a lady who found it at a garage sale for 25 cents!
These bowls are very rare!



This is a Hoffman pottery coconut mug.
