I noticed theres a lot of "Hillbilly Squabble" going back and forth about a few vendors who are not allowed to spam their wares in the Artists alley. Fair enough. (I don't want to step on any toes!)
I must admit there's some funny goin's on over "yonder" in that Artist Alley, but I personally don't really speak hillbilly, and definitely don't have any farm animals on hand. I am more of a surfer who is stoked on the theme of this years event and excited to attend and vend. I am also a shop owner who normally doesn't do alot of "Roadshows" mostly because I don't want to take business away from those who don't own a brick and mortar store. (And also because I want time to go around, mai tai in hand, perusing all da 'kine arts and craftiness!) Many of the vendors I know and respect are true artists with amazing stuff who eek out a living by tirelessly traveling around the country showing off their goods.
That being said, how 'bout a place for the OTHER vendors who want to show previews of the stuff they will be peddling at Oasis? Has this been done? I did a search and couldn't find anything specific. I have been checking out some of this years vendors and what they have for sale and know for sure I need to stop at the bank on the way down to grab some extra "kala".
Aloha, Wes

Howdy Wes! Of course there's always been a place for non artist alley vendors to post their wares. Just like you're doing now. I started the artist Alley thread to focus on us as a group since this is a new area at Oasis. Don't feel like you're being left out.

Post away! Let's see the House of Tiki goodies!!

Will you be selling it at the T.O? I'd like to know the price so I can see if it's in my budget this time around. Thanx!- Rosered

We'll add to the 'cool stuff by vendors not in the Artist's Alley' thread..

Here are some new mosaics we've made.



We're also making a very limited (4) run of pendants. Each one is hand made from glass, mounted in metal and protected with a shiny resin coating. This is our interpretation of the Luau 400 logo and we're also making a few (5) Kahiki Pendants.



And finally we've got some shirts, embroidered with logos of a few of our favorite long-gone Tiki establishments. Again, we only have a limited number of these. The folks who pre-ordered them from us, we got ya covered. Otherwise it's strictly first come, first shirted.



Oh, and a mosaic of Bruce Lee, the famous surfing tiki guy....



Cheers, and we'll see you at Oasis. Just not in the Artist Alley.

ch

p.s. That's one cool looking mug, shakatiki!
