So here is the latest. I haven't hit the thrift shops lately as they are mobbed due to Halloween but I had an early day at work so I thought I would stop by. A nice black velvet painting. I paid $4.00 for it.

Nice Finds everyone. I'm especially jealous of the SB Decanter and the Voodoo Grog Glass. The Velvet painting is cool too.

Here's what I've found since my last reply 20 days ago. It's actually been a pretty good month...



The Kon Tiki Mug and the lone salt (pepper?) shaker were found together at a thrift store I check seldomly, but this was the first time I'm found anything Tiki.
The middle darker Maori carving and the Moari wood box were found together at the Goodwill in the NW of Calgary.
The S & P shakers look like they were from Trader Vic's but actually come from the Mauna Loa. Which one I'm not sure. If anyone knows, I'd be happy to hear it...I found them at a Sunday Flea Market along with the Moari carving behind them.


This was a big find. The most stuff I've ever found at a thrift store in one trip. It's all from the NE Goodwill. Some Tiki-phile must have recently passed away (...Tiki A Moaikingbird?) The crappy thing about this find is that the store knew what it had...and priced it higher than usual. (How did Basement Kahuna once put it..."Kiss Goodwill Goodbye"?) I didn't care. It was still cheaper than eBay. But then again, I did already have most of it...

Oh, and what do you think of the sheet I'm using in the background? It's actually a Duvet cover and mattress sheet set I found at Value Village. I thought it looked like Tapa, but I'm no expert...

Pretty decent haul, Slacks. I covet the Kon Tiki mug. You didn't find 2 did you?

Tiki A. Moaikingbird is still very much with us -- he sent me pictures of his weekend finds which included Al Harrington and Leilani mugs (like yours) and a set of 5 treasurecraft menehunes with booklet.

Gosh, nice finds, maybe since summer is over people are unloading their "luau" gear. Today I found this Trader Vics ashtray just when I about gave up on Goodwlll

I found this a while back . . almost didn't buy it because it's cracked, but I'd never seen one before. Obviously it's not tiki, but it was cheap so what the heck. Anybody ever seen one of these, maybe for different restaurants?

Thanks!

After a pretty long dry spell, I tracked down a nice collection on Craigslist.

I picked all of these up for $40.00:

2 Trader Vics skull mugs (one is stamped TV, the other isn't).
1 Harvey's Barrel Mug
3 Dynasty Wholesale parrot mugs (one red, one green, one blue).
1 Tiki Farm shot glass
2 Trader Vics coconut mugs
1 Unmarked, Orchids-type R-5 mug
1 White mug stamped Kansas State University, 2000.


I also found the following during the dry spell:

1 Hinano Tahitian Beer Ashtray
1 Aloha/Hawaii Cup
1 Plain White Daga Bamboo Mug
1 Norwegian Cruise Lines Surfer Mug (may not really be Tiki)

Got it off Ebay. I've had the dinner menu for a couple of years, so I was glad to get the set.



What's missing here??? No Mystery Drink! Anybody know why? This is copyright 1957

Silverline, I've heard those called Benihana Mugs 'cause the Benihana Steakhouse chain used many like them. I used to have several that I picked up for a quarter or fifty cents, but my wife gave them to my Mother-in-Law since she liked them.

Hey Slacks, Now I know why I didnt find anything at the Calgary Sally ann when I was there on Wednesday - you got it all! I was at the one by the Best Western (where I was staying) on McCleod Trail.

Somebody please fill me in on the whole Tiki Leilani thing. I bought a box of one dozen Tiki Leilani mugs at a "flea market" in South Dakota. They look like new condition...I got them cheap cheap cheap to let my teens use for summer parties, but maybe they are worth more than I thought? The original label is still on the box, it reads "sales promotion material...Sikeston Ceramics, Inc. Mayfield, Kentucky..." It was originally shipped to a Liquor store in Rapid City. Any info would thrill me! Thanks, Shannlei

If I were on the Antiques Roadshow, I would advise you to insure these precious items for between 1 and 2 dollars each. In other words... don't bother selling, it's not worth your time! However, you bought them for a good reason - to have fun with them!

Who knows, one day they may be worth a lot... in 2089!

shannlei-

Perfect find and perfect purpose! They're about the most common (so not worth big bucks) and yet greatest little mugs! They were, as you saw, used as promotional giveaways for many years, thus their ubiquitousness. BUT - they're great and they're vintage! I buy all I can if they're cheap and use them with my guests. That way, they are drinking out of a real, vintage mug, but if they drop it, I won't cry! Congrats on a nice little find
