Hi All, Damian here. (Spamboree D) Finally decided to pull back the shimmering veil that is Tiki Central and try setting up a Tropical lounge for myself. I was lucky enough to have had my parents take me to Don the Beachcomber, Trader Vic's, The Tahitian Village and the like as a child, (no we weren't rich, just a working class family that liked going to interesting places). I loved all of it and was sad to see it slowly fade away... But it was a night at The Tiki"s in Monterey Park that sealed the deal for me! Talk about sensory overload!!! I've never forgotten it, or my first Tiki mugs that we brought home from there. I must admit I am not what you would call a purist, I collect things that look like they want to go home with me, not just Tiki, but things 40ish to 70ish that just feel right. So my apologies in advance if some of my pics are not "traditional Tiki". But, hopefully I won't embarrass myself too badly. Any help along the way would be appreciated!!

I've been doing a Vintage RV rally in So Cal Called "The Teardrop Spamboree" for 10 years, a Hawaiian themed event that takes us back to the golden years of travel before video games and Blackberrys.











Next year we will be having our first 5 year Spamboreeunion (Where the Tiki's Meets the Trailer Park), and would love for some of you to stop by for the fun. I'll be announcing the dates and location soon. check out
www.theshortshorttrailer.com The site hasn't been updated for awhile (Whew 5 years) but it will be as soon as I get the dates for next years event! Check out some of the pics on the album page for an idea of what its about!! Look forward to chatting, and possibly seeing you all soon Damian!!

Hi! New guy here with a general interest in all different kinds of art! Just picked up a beautiful Hawaiian black velvet painting and a little research led me here. Looking forward to learning more about this amazing medium of art!

Thanks for being a great resource,
Larry

Brand new here...wanted to show off bar I bought at Goodwill for $60....it also has 5 no-back stools....super clean and sturdy, just has normal wear and tear scuffs on wood, no gouges or peeling.

Is this a cool find? I think it is.

Not sure if I did image right.

Hello all!
My name is Madison, but all my tiki lovers call me Duchess. I'm the general manager of Tiki Iniki: a new Tiki bar and casual fine dining restaurant opening next month on Kauai's blissful north shore.

I'm here to meet fellow tikiheads and learn as much as I can! Can't wait to hear from you!

Aloha to all O'hana.

Just checking in on a great site. I live in Central Florida and have had the Tiki/Hawaiian itch ever since I left Oahu in 1975. I'm starting a pool/spa at my "retirement" home. Decided to just give in to the Tiki Gods and theme the whole project.

Mahalo.

Hi All, Jeff here(Tipsy Yeti)and I'm really glad to be here. I've been a lurker for some time now, I've loved Tiki culture from afar for years but have just really gotten into it. Here in San Francisco, we have a couple of really great places right in town. The Smugglers Cove, and the Tonga Room which is just a block from our home. I've been an artist for many years, mostly Halloween related items, Masks busts etc. I've sculpted my first mug and I'm waiting for my mold to dry out so I can cast it up. The Tipsy Yeti name is our home Tiki bar that we will be building when we buy a house, we hope to do that in the coming months. It will combine a tranquil Tibetan back yard, with a tiki bar. Very Disney inspired, we just love Disney. Anyway, I really hope to interact with you all and thanks for having me.

Howdy!
My name's David and I'm from landlocked San Antonio, TX.
I play in a surf band called, The Phantomatics, but that's neither here nor there.

I've lurked on this site a few times, but finally decided to join.

Anyways, I'm looking forward to lots of good reading material!
