For photos of the event go to page 15 or 16 of the Andy Landry thread under Ohana and scroll back and forth. Somehow I got them side by side three photos on one line, Wendy

You've got to be kidding me.

Man, what a wonderful day! The weather was perfect, and sellers & buyers alike were beaming with a very successful day. I ran the booth of Forbidden Island decor leftovers (the FI gang had a lot of guests to take care of), and by the end of the day, pretty much all that was left were a couple of fake plants and some cleats (wannabuya cleat?). Being behind the booth, I didn't get to chat with people for very long, but I got to give some smiles and waves across the parking lot to plenty of folks, which was nice. Connecting someone with something they're excited to get, at a great price, is always fun.

Since I was busy working, my pictures are of the calm before the storm, when we were getting set up, and then a handful of pictures at the end of the day when it was wrapping up. You can see them all here:

Nacho's amazing tiki bar, which was just as cool inside as out:


The Forbidden Island booth:




Mugs for sale at Martiki's booth (run by the lovely Dr. Boo Loo):


Dr. Tiki Mojo's Tiki Hunters booth, his lovely wife Eva pictured:


Jungle Trader is on the right

Jungle Trader, Suzanne, Chongolio (that's a person!?), Haoleakamai, Marie & Jon-Paul:


A booth shared by FI waitress Melissa (who owns Alameda's Retro Diva Pinup) and Beckie (who owns Icon Vintage in Berkeley), it's been a long time since I've seen a vintage clothes booth this big, it was killing me to have to look at it from across the lot! At the end of the day, they pulled out some super-small stuff for me to try, and I got a great new dress:


Otto's Tiki News booth, with Tiki Art Now books, and Crazy Al:


Jungle Trader, Polynesiac & Chongolio man their booths:


A happy customer at the end of the day: the bar ran out of glasses at one point, so this fellow bought this glass from Martiki's booth to fill up at the bar:


I was too busy to shop, so Hanford had to do it for us... we loved this lamp at Martiki's table, so we bought it, even though we don't have a table to put it on. Presto, once the dust cleared from the inital rush, I spotted a half-pretzel rattan end table that matches my living room set! Score!


Congratulations on such a massively successful event to the whole Forbidden Island gang!

Sunday was a blast. We enjoyed shopping and meeting TC members. Here are some photos that show Dan and Wendy of danlovestikis, Kingtiesdye, JenTiki, Coco Loco, Hanford, Dr. Tikimojo, Chongolio, Crazy Al, and Otto.

A wonderful tiki bar, a blast from the past, Wendy






More photos tomorrow.

For the record, it's Alameda County.

This was a great way to end the summer!! I am completely blown away at the turn out and success of Martiki's brainchild. I am very happy I was a part of it. Martiki, Booloo, Thayer, Tofujoe and all the FI crew really made this a special sunday for everyone who made it out to sell, buy and of course have a few drinks. Nacho and Mike are super stars for bringing the Monster Tiki over for a visit. It is always a hoot to see everyone in thier element and putting the names to the smiling faces that populate TC.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by and chatted me up. Super deep thank you's to all who spent some cash and picked some of my art. I can't tell you enough times how much it keeps me inspired to keep moving forward with my creative projects. You all are the folks who keep the Tiki Art community going strong. Mahalo for all the support!

Cheers,
Chongolio

Ditto to what Chongolio said! I was so pleased and proud to be a part of this really fantastic event. I had a blast, rescued a poor broken ceramic flamingo, was able to support other fantastic artists from Tiki Central, met new friends, and even made a little bit of money to support my Bananamamacow habit.

Thank you so very, very much, Martin and everyone at Forbidden Island, for inviting us to be a part of a perfect afternoon. We'll be there next year with bells on!

Suzanne

Can't begin to say how priviledged we feel to have a Chongolio original for our humble walls. Wooo hoooo! And not that we want to to go so far away, but we also feel good that our purchase is helping you get to your next destination.

I really wanted to make this event, especially after meeting so many great people at Hooptylau. I got slammed with work and needed the weekend to get caught up. By the looks of those pics I missed a great event and a chance to get some goodies. I hope this is an event that will come around again sooner than later. I have to get to F.I. soon....maybe on a Tiki Central Wednesday!!!!!

my wife and i had a fantastic time at forbidden island last sunday. i scored some great stuff from jungle trader, dr. tikimojo, chongolio, crazy al and polynesiac. my wife got an aloha dress and one of suzanne's beautiful flowers. we saw a lot of tcers we'd met the week before at the hooptylau after party and got to see friends like limptiki and danlovestikis. i also met some tcers i'd been hoping to meet. martiki has a great lounge. it seems like it's been there for 50 years. we had some great appetizers and were pleasantly surprised the food was half off. also scored an f.i. mug for smgleason47. i'm really coveting those awesome munktiki fugu sippers! i sure hope this becomes an annual or semi-annual event.

I was cocktailing inside and didn't get to shmooze with everyone. Next time you (I mean the collective "TC Ohana" you) drop in, please introduce yourself to me.

Cheers,

WOW!
What an event.....if this had lasted any longer than 4 hours there could have been heads exploding and human sacrifices to the most massive Tiki outside of Easter Island, (to tell ya the truth it even gave them a run for the money!).
The most fun Mrs. Mojo and I have had at almost ANY event and most certainly the most fun as vendors!! Not only did we meet up with friends that we only knew in the virtual world of TC but we also scored a Chongolio original, (greatest part of vending is being behind the scenes), and we stood facing the MONSTER TIKI ALL DAY LONG....what an honor!!

BIG BIG THANKS TO MARTIN FOR MAKING IT ALL POSSIBLE!!! Thank you to everyone who came by our booth, said hello, picked up an item or two, Dan & Wendy, THE KING, (we meet at last!), and to everyone that didn't make it plan on it next year....it's worth the trip!
