Wow! I'm just now sufficiently recuperated from the weekend to post about it!

Mucho Mahalos to the Bamboos for hosting!

So much great art! At great prices! If only I could afford it, I woulda bought something from everybody!

As it was, we inherited a cool tapa print jacket from Holden and awesome tiki shirts from WooHoo and TikiVato!
Mahalos!!!

And Manuel got really sunburnt! (it's fading to a nice tan now, though...)

We had a fantastic time, and while I already sent my thanks to Ben and his family, we also want to give big props to all you vendors, and the bands too! SUCH a good time due to all of you, and so much fun hanging out with our tiki family! Oh, and The Cadillac Kings car club was just the icing on the cake for this Caddy enthusiast.

We went home with huge smiles, lots of great art and goodies, and me with a sunburn. I'll post some pics tonight from the day, as well as of the group at Don's that evening.

Most sadly though, when we finally fully recovered and went out to unpack the car today, (yes, we just did it today!), I discovered that we were missing 2 of the pieces of art I had bought from Ben. One was the pin-up fabric framed in a bamboo hut (it was the one on the top left row of his display, one of the larger ones with the brunette pin-up, made from the fabric from a shirt),and the other was one of the bamboo framed pieces with the abstract carved tiki face on it (kind of like a negative-space look). We would have had them stacked behind or near the Doug Horne and Happy Chi booth, so someone could have easily packed them up with their things by accident. Or maybe I had too many of Atomic Tiki Punk's refreshing Mai Tai's (thank you Lance!) and set them down somewhere, like I did with my Lake Tiki piece earlier in the day? Regardless, any help in locating them would be so appreciated! I'm so sad to have realized we don't have them! Mahalo!

P.S. If my descriptions are too crazy, I'll ask someone to help me label the 2 items for me on the pics Ben posted of the treasures he was selling, as both of the pieces were in those pics. That might be especially helpful if'n I did just lay them down somewhere! THANK YOU!!

Jeeeez, I'm a mess. It was actually all THREE pieces we bought from Ben. There was a triangle shaped tiki mask with small bamboo cross-bars behind it that's missing too. In fact, all we ended up coming home with was our freebie from the $10 box!

Any clues as to who might have picked them up for us would be most appreciated. Thanks so much, and sorry for derailing the thread for that.

We had such a great time at Bamboo Ben's last weekend. Huge thanks to the Boo's, the vendors, and of course, the Hard Riders, Chum, and the Squares. You all kept my adrenalin (and alcohol) pumpin'. I left So-Cal hung over and broke....exactly as I planned. I wouldn't have it any other way.
I posted a rather poor quality video of Chum's opening song "Brand New Cadillac" to youtube.
It's here if you're brave:

YAY! Doug and Stacey grabbed our stuff for us, so we're all good. Thank you!

Oh, and Tai Won on, I LOVE that video you shot of Chum - thanks for posting!

The art, tiki treasures, sick caddies were awesome & the bands kicked ass.

Thanks CHLOE! I now love the Jonas Brothers!



Awwww! Kinny, I will pass this on to her for sure! It will make her smile real BIG! She loves you too, you know! But really, stay away from that JoBro stuff, it'll rot your brain.

I had a bunch of fun, hanging out with all you great people, supermex tacos, lots of Ruzic laughs and hugs, my red haired supervixen Ravenne, meeting some new folks, drinking beer in the sunshine with my neighbors Tiki G and Melody, good times with MP, Jen, Toe, Deuce and Kim, Dave L., Doug, Stacey, and GROG too. etc, etc.(Didn't get to wander too much, so sorry I missed seeing some of the other vendors)! Bands were great too! Thanks again to the Boos for putting on such a super event and including me as a vendor. Sold some good stuff but also got comissions for 7 custom clothing pieces! Yay!

I have to admit the highlight for me was seeing Scott make his debut in his "International Man of Leisure" tiki jumpsuit that I made for him. Scott, you are the most fun client ever!

Looking forward to making swanky apparel for all of you and more fun in the sun, soonest possible!
XO,
Kiki

Big ole Mahalos to da Boos for hooking this up and offering up some rock bottom prices on some one of a kind treasures. Spermy's band brought mosh pit and tiki together like never before seen....classic. Mahalo Kiki Von Tiki for the apron and oven mit, mom is going to look pretty snazzy come Mothers Day. HB Tiki mahalo for giving Mrs. Mongoloid the Maile leaf necklace from Hawaii. Ben is the master at redefineing what can collaborate with tiki and pull it off like no other!
