I've only been seriously into Tiki for about 10 years or so, but my son has been into it his whole life. He's been to Tiki Oasis and touched Marina the Mermaid's tail. He's not impressed by Dad's painting. For me, this stuff is exotic, but for him it's normal decor.

I found the hutch about seven years ago at the PCC (Pasadena Community College) Flea Market which was only a couple of blocks away from where we were renting at the time. I passed by it the first time because it had a really ugly taxidermied rooster sitting on top of it. My wife dragged me back and pointed it out to me. So, really, she deserves credit for the find. I remember her saying: "Don't you need something like that to put all your Tiki mugs in?" Love that woman! I think I paid $100 for it originally, and that included delivery.

It doesn't have the matching lower half, but I found a bottom section to another plainer wood hutch that fits perfectly. And, as you can see in the pictures, the base isn't really noticeable from the other side of the bar.

It's been a while, but I snapped off several pics of the Hoodoo Hut this evening while enjoying a few Mai Tais and listening to a CD of the Tikiyaki Orchestra.

No major changes, but a few small tweaks here and there:

The hutch is magnificent and if I had a tiki bathroom I'd definitely hang that shower curtain! It's cute.

and I agree with Jon, you should definitely participate in the next art swap! I have and I think you have more talent than I do!!!

Thanks!

The art swaps are fun. The last one I did was the Undersea Swap, which I really enjoyed.

It's been hectic around here, lately, though. When I get a chance, I'll have to do another one.

Hey now- is that a ceramic bust of Tarman from Return of the Living Dead? I know it couldn't be a mug, could it??
DETAILS PLEASE!

Thanks for the compliments!

I keep finding stuff to add to the room. Yesterday I found one of those round rattan banded shelf units that just needs a couple of pieces of cut glass shelving to make it complete. I don't have any wall space left, but it was only $8, so I picked it up and will use it later, maybe in a future version of the Hoodoo Hut.

I don't have a bust of the tar man, but I think you might be looking at the zombie mug on the left middle section of the hutch which is a cool Munktiki mug with removable magnetic eyes and ears that can be taken out and changed around. This was the first issue of the Magno Zombie which has been long sold out, but you can get the smiley version here:
