I've been a fan of tiki culture for about 10 years now, but really got started collecting in earnest around 4 years ago. Living in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, it is not as easy to come by tiki items, so most of my colllection was gathered via the web.
Last fall, after a trip to Vegas and a visit to Frankie's Tiki Room, I was inspired to put our unused storage room in the basement to use and bulid a bar room. The room had just been gathering dust and holding boxes and junk. Over the course of a few weeks, I bulit The Tiki Room (boring name, but inspired by Frankie's). Here's some shots of the construction progress and its current state. I'm pretty proud of my Tiki Room, and it has been the location of quite a few fun nights since it was bulit.
I'm relatively new to TC, having only posted about a mug sale last year. This is an awesome place - I hope you don't mind me joining the conversation.
(Some of the photos I'll post were from instagram, so please forgive the filtered look they might have.)
