I’ll admit, I’m a bit of a nut when it comes to retro stuff. There’s a interesting quality to things that were once popular that have disappeared or that are mostly forgotten nowadays. Luckily, Southern California is one of the las bastions of Tiki culture in the United states, and the place where the Tiki Revival has gotten underway. Every month or so, Tiki fans come together for the International Tiki Marketplace, hosted at Don the Beachcomber’s in Huntington beach. Vendors, musicians and craftspeople bring their best and celebrate “Tiki Culture” in LA.
Don’s has several spacious dining rooms where they cram in dozens of vendors.

If you guys have a chance to check out the Tiki Marketplace, I’d highly recommended…I’ll definitely be there!
