About

The Tiki Room Vintage Story

I've been selling part-time here on Etsy since 2008 from my shop, Tiki Room Vintage.

I primarily sell vintage accessories, fabrics and supplies, clothing, and home decor from the 1950s to the 1980s. I also sell new fabrics and supplies, from time to time.

My particular favorite decades for design are the 1950s to the early 1970s, and I think that is reflected in a lot of the items I sell.

Why did I name the shop "Tiki Room Vintage?"

The Enchanted Tiki Room was my favorite attraction at Disneyland when I was a child.

That may sound strange to someone unfamiliar with Disney, but I am one among legions of Disney art fans. I am especially fond of anything and everything the artist Mary Blair created, and 1960s-era Disney concept design and art. It has affected my personal style as an adult through and through, as well as the pieces that inevitably end up for sale in this shop.

The whole concept of a tiki room opened up an incredible new world to me, not only in style of clothing and decor, but in exotica music -- which you can usually find me listening to while I work on this shop -- travel to far off places, and a passion for exploration into the unknown. There was a very fun, free-spiritedness to it all, and that's what I'm always looking for in an item to put in this shop.

My promises to you:

I will find unique, occasionally designer, vintage items, and sell them to you at excellent prices.

I will ship carefully packaged items to you extremely quickly.

Why should you buy from Tiki Room Treasures?

Because it’s vintage, everything in my shop is one of a kind.

You won’t see a mirror image of yourself or your belongings every time you go outside when you purchase something from Tiki Room Treasures.

You can be assured that whether you bought a little Italian-made purse from the 1960s from my shop, or a set of acrylic salt and pepper shakers from the 1970s, you’re probably the only one for miles around who has such unique pieces.

You’re buying something that was not made en masse in a sweatshop; it was often made by hand.

A good deal of the articles of clothing I sell were made with loving care by hand, or altered by hand to fit one special person.

Why not make that person you?

In order to ensure that a garment will fit you when you get it home, I carefully measure my clothing for sale here by laying each piece out flat. I not only measure the garment’s length, but across the back of the shoulders, across the chest, waist, hips, hem, sleeve length; even the stretch of the fabric. Just ask me for additional measurements, too!

You’re part of the solution when you buy vintage.

Many of the items that end up for sale at Tiki Room Treasures were purchased from organizations that work to end child and spousal abuse, or to make sure pets find a safe and loving home.

Plus, you’re giving new life to every vintage piece you buy.

It’s like karmic recycling!

Thank you for visiting Tiki Room Treasures, which features a variety of good quality vintage fabrics, clothing, accessories, and supplies.

Every experience with Tiki Room Treasures will provide attractive, unique, and affordable vintage stock, and great customer service to Etsy shoppers. I'm always on the lookout for interesting items and intend to regularly list new items for sale.

A little about me and my philosophy as an Etsy.com shop owner:

My absolute favorite childhood book was "Pretty, Pretty Peggy Moffitt," and without realizing it, from that book alone, I would start to become influenced and inspired by artists and creators like William Pène du Bois and Rudi Gernreich at a very young age.

I'm a vintage/antique/thrift store junkie, and I always have been. There are some real treasures out there just waiting to be found and given a second life, as any devotee of these stores will tell you.

My particular area of interest is late 50s to late 60s, and that includes fashion and home decor.

I love bold colors, bold designs, and pretty much anything vintage that you could describe as mod, retro, or space-age.

If I find something with a designer label, I look it over very well before considering listing it on Etsy. I do label and RN research online to make sure that you are getting your money's worth. My belief is that quality will out, and I only sell 100 percent authentic items, because I only want to sell quality goods and share my passion for them with buyers.
