A Taste of Tika

Welcome to our blog, A Taste of Tika! The blog documents day to day activities, trade shows, products and a taste of life here at Tika Imports in Northern California! 

Oh, the stories these puppets have told...

Can you guess where today’s Mandala Monday came from?
Here’s a hint... We’re currently unpacking a new shipment of Vintage Wayang Puppets!

This beautiful pair of antique silver hollow-form ankle bangles is truly a unique treasure.
Each bangle is embellished with traditional chasing and repousse techniques, each mark applied by hand from the maker. This set was created 80-100 years ago in Sindh Valley, Pakistan and now resides in Tika’s Antique Collection.

Here at Tika, every day is Earth Day

Antique Silver Dorsal Pendant from Katawaz Ghazni Valley in Afghanistan
- Just another one of a kind beauty in Tika’s Antique Collection

Sunny afternoons are a great time to take our super sparkly Sunlight Tea Light Holders out for a spin!

~ Om Rings ~
Each adjustable band inscribed with the mantra “Om mani padme hum”- a Tibetan prayer for universal peace.
Available in 4 different styles, and now in 10pc assortments

Micro Mirage Necklaces, showing off their mesmerizing color-changing abilities.
If you haven’t seen these in person before, now is a great time to check them out as they have New Lower Prices!

A little pop of color goes a long way on a wet and stormy Spring day

Most of you probably know that we offer a great selection of Prayer Bead Mala in a variety of materials, but did you know that we also carry a colorful assortment of Guru Beads and Tassels?
These components are perfect for making your own mala, incorporating into jewelry designs and much more!

Well it’s really feeling like Spring around here!
Of all the blossoms sprouting up, this Smart Flower is our current favorite!
After a long, patient wait it is officially up and running, gathering enough energy from the sun to make Tika a mostly solar-powered business!

Wishing you all a very happy St Patrick’s Day weekend
from the Irish lass and all of us here at Tika
