You're not Porco as in Porco Lounge & Tiki Room, are you? Did they go to you?


EDIT: Just clicked on homepage, and you're one and the same. Glad they went to a good home! Huzzah! Looking forward to seeing what you come up with. I'll be performing at a private hot rod event in August, and we'll have to stop by if you're open. And if you like hot rods, rockabilly/surf/rock n roll or crazy sideshow performers, shoot me a PM and I'll put you on the list.

Same seller now has 3 different Chin Tiki lamps listed.

Has anyone verified if this stuff is legit?

If it's the same guy I bought my Chin Tiki chairs from, he's legit. I think his name is Rich. He knows Marlin Chin, brother of the original (and now defunct) Chin Tiki in Detroit. Marlin is owner of Chin's in Livonia and they have the same chairs in that restaurant.

from what i know- this guy has been getting stuff from marlin chin. it's all legit stuff from the old downtown chinn's that would not fit in the livonia chinn's. it was all in storage up until recently. A friend of mine bought the 12 ft. outrigger, 2 large 12 ft carved panels, some tikis and other stuff at this guys recent garage sale not long ago. The lamps are said to be in not the best shape and need repairs.
