Just found an old file with pics from our big fire and thought I'd share some before and after pics. Many many mahalos to our wonderful ohana who helped us remove, reimagine, rebuild, restock and reopen.













I just had to keep one of these big puffers from the pitch black Mug Grotto where our MUNKTIKI case stands today. One of the only things not destroyed by fire, smoke or water, it now hangs in my house along with a Mendiola/Foi Mo tiki and a miraculously unscathed autographed Arthur Lyman Group photo, a gift to Freaky Boutiki from Harold Chang.

__________

...Whoops! Forgot the "afters" here's just a few so nobody has nightmares. I'll try to match the above pics shortly...

A view to the Mug Grotto. Alohas by Reyn Spooner Hawaiian Traditionals. Outrigger beam by OnaTiki. A-frame by Rich Miller. You can also see a Crazy Al tiki, some OnaTiki Cook Island masks and a fraction of our constantly evolving mug selection.

A beautiful Harvey Mendiola/Foi Mo Tahitian tiki stands proud in the post fire Grotto

" Happy family one-hand-clap... " Freaky Boutiki Ohana

Artist Robert Tobin helped me realize my designs for our exterior frieze work. Here he's climbed up into the window display mouth of our grateful gargantua.

The Dread Pirate Murf "Schmaltzes" up a Yipwan with hand blended pigments and natural hemp cording, (no extra charge!)

I don't have to pay Charlie extra to be this cute.... Bonus!

Glad you guys made it home OK.

What happened with the MUSTANG you were taking home? Did Dave sell it?

I can imagine it snarling through foggy cobblestone alleys like some sort of Jack-the-Ripper with a Detroit attitude scaring the shite out of those wimpy little Britmobiles!

Oh, Dave & Sue, the lamp you bought was by OnaTiki, although we also carry wonderful resin tiki pendants by Meiko!

Bamboo artist Rich Miller working on the A-Frame which will eventually house flame effects, headhunter trophys and a Crazy Al tiki. The outrigger beam was carved by Ona Tiki... Rich has also recently completed installations for Santa Clara Center and Meihana's Hawaiian Grinds on Garnet Avenue in Pacific Beach



Rich & Coleen's dog Mack eyes a machette as Monkey sneaks up from the shadows.



Dread Pirate Murf burned and hand wrapped yarn moss on pre-made grids that would eventually support our mask display. You can still see part of our old Rick Griffin stlye mural featuring surfing eyeballs and big yellow tiki.

Just a bump for the trademarked map

Beer or dog toys is acceptable printing of the map

Now that is what a contemporary Tiki store should look like! You are really fully ladling from the rich sources of Southern Californian Tikidom. It's looking like O.A.'s lil' brother!

Aloha, all!

I thought I'd post a pictorial tribute to Freaky Boutiki & Crazy Al that I just created on Paintshop Pro...




It's a computer-enhanced version of this pic which I posted some days ago:



Cheers!

Kreepy: Mahalo nui loa for the great pics!

BigBro:

Jeff: Yeah really! WTF?




This, my friend is an Astro Ahtray by the mysterious Artist X.



I spotted him a few years ago in Las Vegas; a complete stranger dashing through a crowd wearing a velvet smoking jacket and a fez. Naturally, I was compeled to introduce myself and the rest as they say is history.

Artist X has created a full line of poly-pop and low brow inspired smokers accessories as well as ash-free insence burners.
