Hawthorne Suites is only a few years old and serves complimentary full breakfast (at least they did this summer. It also has a guest spa. We checked out the rooms and they were clean and comfortable. It's not luxury, but it's clean and comfortable. If you don't mind being on the main street of Webster I think it's the closest in terms of walking to FI.

As both an Alameda resident and FI's PR dude, I am personally anticipating this year's event because I will have convenient access to the wares of famous tiki artisans I normally only meet at huge far-flung shindigs like Tiki Oasis - including the likes of Doug Horne, Thor and Taboo Island. The roster seems especially exciting this year, though I've always found great stuff at FI's parking lot sales (Monica needs some new Tiki Goddess dresses from Retro Diva). It's also cool we've added a live exotica band indoors (the Lee Vilensky Trio) along with the always reliable DJ Tanoa. See ya there!

If any other VENDOR has double booked, can't make it, or cares to share a spot - TIKI HUNTER has vended at every Forbidden Island Parking Lot Sale to date but just missed the window on this one since we are also going out of business, (like several others I see posted now on TC) and I haven't been following TC as much as I used to!

I would be willing to share costs, pay for space, and or give you some Tiki swag in appreciation!

email me please!

Mahalo Plenty,
David Bennion
TIKI HUNTER

Still no spot for the TIKI HUNTER!
We need to close out the last of our Tiki inventory and this would be the best place to say good bye!

Any one with space for even ONE TABLE it would be appreciated and compensated!

Mahalo Plenty,

Dave

Excited about the parking lot sale! Dr. TikiMojo, I hope you can find a way to squeeze in!

I'll have a few hair accessories there, in the Retro Diva booth.

So I've been inspired by my large collection of Hawaiian shirts that I don't wear because they don't fit me.

I started with this really great green one and ended up with
these:



which I will have for sale at the FI Parking Lot Sale, along with several other patterns, for example:





They all have a shirt pocket detail on the front (some even sport the buttoned front seam!!)


a patch pocket


AND inset pocket


and snap closure.

Additionally, I'll have vintage Aloha wear and Mid-Century clothing from my personal collection, Tiki collectables, hair flowers, and more, that I need to find good homes for.

Make sure to tell me you're TC member and get 20% off of everything!

Mahalo!
~Thayer

Aloha everybody!

I'm excited about participating in my 2nd Forbidden Island Parking Lot Sale!

I'll be bringing some plush Tiki Bobs with me...


I sold out of all that I had made in time for TIki Oasis 9, but I've got bunch more ready for the Forbidden Island Parking Lot Sale!

I've changed the fabric, so it it closer to the color of the actual Tiki Bob mug, but the material remains the same:
Corduroy, flannel, button eyes and a bit of vinyl for the mouth.

The figures stand 10" high and are 4" in diameter.
Each figure has a tag that is signed and numbered (1/1) by me!

I'm working on some new stuff that will debut at the Forbidden Island Parking Lot Sale, I'll try to post here if I get a chance!

So come visit me while you're waiting in line for your food!
Can't wait to see all my Tiki Ohana....it's been awhile!

ATTENTION KILL DEVIL CLUB MEMBERS!

You and your special livers are getting VIP treatment at FI’s 4th annual parking lot sale!

Doors open to the general public at 2PM – but show up between 1:45 and 1:59 and you’ll be allowed into the bar, where you can hang out and have a cocktail in the “VIP lounge” until the back lot opens at 2PM sharp – giving you first dibs on the goods! Just identify yourself to the door guy (he’ll have a check list) when you arrive early.
