In the honor of tiki Kate and her vast collection of shirts, I was wondering if anyone would like to do a Hawaiian shirt trade/swap at Oasis. Kate said she is only there for a day but thought it was a good idea.

I have a large collection of Large and extra large shirts and some in smaller sizes. I thought this might be fun when I saw Kate's posts on all her shirts, if interested please post here and we can plan from there , thanks

If you wont be at Oasis and want to attend, I am sure we can make an online component.

Hi Amy -

I'm interested in this idea. I can swap maybe a couple dozen shirts in Medium to Large.

Make this clear: Aloha shirt = Hawaiian/POLYNESIAN graphics etc / NO CARIBBEAN IMAGERY
Tiki shirt = Tikis must be represented graphically on the shirt

I've seen way too many shirts (for example eBay) described as a "tiki" shirt with no tiki graphics anywhere. Mostly tapa patterns or the like. This slightly pisses me off

Keep me in the loop.

Amy,
This sounds great. I have a few shirts I'd like to trade. I'll be looking for more details. Maybe we should all post pictures & let the trades begin.
Thanks, Mike

Sounds really swell. Not sure how the logistics of a 'swap' would work, but I really like the idea. Would be a very good idea to check with Tiki O and/or the already established vendors to make sure it is approached in the correct way and thru the proper channels I would think....

Amy -

First off, I must say it was nice to hang out with you and Ray last night at Kirby's Rumpus Room.

Sorry! I should have talked to you about this shirt swap stuff..it completely slipped my mind last night. Anyway, I have a room booked at Tiki Oasis, I'm sure we all do, and I'm thinking how about hosting shirt swaps live in our rooms sometime during the four day event. We can all take turns?..you know, an hour or two each (or something like that.)
I know I don't want to do that all day long bit little nips here and there is workable.

For those that can't make it to San Diego, we can still post a few shirts here on this thread.

What'ya think?

hi, great seeing you last night as well, Kirby and polly are very gracious hosts! and Kelly is a great mixologist!

On the shirt swap, I like the idea and if we do it it first at oasis then we will have a better idea how to do it online. works for me...

I have a few to swap - One location one time for an hour or 2 (at most) and if no swaps work out correctly try for a best offer or trade for a mug or drink. Since your are bringing the shirt to get rid of you probably won't care what happens to it afterwards whether its swapped for a shirt or a mug or necklace or $$$$???? - Plus others could visit that way and maybe after the first hour or so its just a best offer thing.

Either way I'm in to it - bringing a few shirts to a location and meeting some people and hoping to get a new piece for my wardrobe. Heck why not even post a few pics of what you are thinking of swapping here in this post?!

thanks for thinking of this let me know if I can help.
maybe during the room crawl this could work???? Hard to say?

Personally I don't care if I swap shirt for shirt, shirt for mug, shirt for art, shirt for ?

It's a SWAP! Whatever makes both parties happy...

Since I don't know what room number I'm booked into, yet, I can't give everyone a heads up as to date, room, time etc that I can do a shirt swap. It'll probably be a last minute thing and I'll post cards around Tiki Oasis, word of mouth, that kind of thing. You know how it goes sometimes even with the best planning. I'm gonna keep this a loose thing.

Can't wait to meet more tiki peeps, and this shirt swap sounds like a cool deal, man!
Oasis is THE event of the year!

Anyone else have ideas?

i am so in!

i keep ordering vintage hawaiians online and they are always too small for my largish beer-belly.

i will have a box full of never-worns perfect for non-fat-asses!
