I have seen (and collected) most (all?) of the postcards from Tiki Gardens over years, but recently came across some different and more artistic views.

A few of the Tikis.

Tiki with torch.



Tiki with leaf hair.



The Parakeet Bell Tower which appears to have been an aviary.



View of Trader Frank's restaurant from the river side.



Entrance to the Oriental Shop.



Tiki heaven on earth.

Just finished reading this thread, what a trip down memory lane! Back in the 60s, my grandparents would take me with them on vacation from Ohio to Florida every year and we went to Tiki Gardens numerous times over the years. Years later as a young adult I lived in Sarasota and Bradenton for a while. I had no idea how close I was.

I just scanned a few pics a couple of days ago, not the greatest quality, but I was there, and that's probably a good part of why I'm here.

Glad to see someone picking up the tiki torch on this idea. We got started on the notion of putting up a Lono statue in the old parking lot and Wayne Coombs was ready to sculpt it, when some guy started throwing around threats of lawsuits and acquiring the rights to the Tiki Gardens name, logos, etc. We had raised some money for the project and decided to give it up, but the cash was all returned properly as far as I know. Best of luck wit the project. I still think it was a great idea.

Well, as of 2011 the last trademark on the name Tiki Gardens was cancelled. If someone with the funds wants to protect the mark by grabbing it now, that wouldn't be a bad move. You'd need to use the trademark in commerce somehow though, or you'll lose it. Even "Remember Tiki Gardens" t-shirts would qualify.

I just realized that the post above was my first actual post here, although I've been stopping by for years! I think I had another username and might have made a couple of posts several years ago, but I can't really remember.

<Shakes sleep from eyes>

Hmmmm what's this? Interesting info...

Well folks, after many a year away from the Tiki Gardens Memorial Website, a trip
to Tiki Oasis and seeing all the old faces and catching the spirit of rum and good times, I think it's time I get the website back to some semblance of it's former, netscape html editor, glory.


Suggestions for a good webpage editor and FTP program are welcome.

As to TG trademark rights, I'll look into it.

One of the ( among many ) good moments was being able to thank Otto in person for his help in the initial push for a tiki at the original site.


http://home.earthlink.net/~tikigardens/page1.html

Off to work for now, but I'll start going through my old files and trying to get what was a semi organic site that flowed into new pages as info was discovered...

Awesome news, TG....I go over there all the time, hoping for some new updates on the old website, but was beginning to think it would never happen...now, I'm stoked to hear that you might be breathing some new life into it again....sweet!

Great news indeed. Nothing like a little Tiki Oasis revival! Having an image from Tiki Gardens as the logo for Tiki Pop doesn't hurt the enthusiasm either!




Let me know if you want scans of postcards, brochures, photos etc. from my collection for the updated webpage.
