Anyone know how old this might be?
I'm guessing '70s?

I am in the process on moving and have started organising my mugs. I had this black The Tiki's mug in the back of a cabinet for years because it's a duplicate. When I pulled it out, I realized that there was something crumbed up in the inside of the mug, which I had never noticed before. I pulled it out and it was a napkin from there. Pretty cool. I've had this mug for probably 6 years and never realized it.

Some of December's first couple of weeks "in the wild" finds
the tattoo book has about 70 pages of old Moari, Samoan, and other "ethnographic tattoos"
Dear The Sperm Whale: I picked up that brass whale clip for you, if you want it. It was a buck.
This week's stuff
And some things I received in trade for some of those unpictured finds already
I think everything here ran about $68...

not exactly the best tiki find, but they're cute! haha...I found these at a Beall's Outlet in Orlando
this one isn't really a find, I got it for xmas, it says "tiki peepshow", too cool!
I didn't know where else to show it, and didn't want to start a whole new topic just to share it

A handyman I employed a few months back saw I collected tiki and gave me a Harveys Mug that his mother gave him. He told me it was from the 50's or 60's. He didn't want it and decided to give it to me. Not sure exactly how old, but I've never seen anything like it. If anyone knows info. on it, I'd love to hear about it. Please email me. I would imagine it is pretty rare. Not sure though.

Found several nice size fishing floats or 'jugs' as they appear to be, in several colors. Only brought one home but I'm going back for more soon! They have an opening in the top that made it super easy to convert to a swag float lamp---sweeeet!

I am schizo in my collecting, but it all eventually works out, since the general public refers to that as "eclectic". I am new to collecting mugs. Just had my first tiki mug shopping experience....got 3 mugs, and then was side-tracked by some jadite (that I have been collecting for years). Please feel free to make comments about any of my lame purchases or decorum, I am still learning.

Slow out there but had some fun this weekend:
Things weren't looking too promising so I bought this. It's part of a set of six Chile Coasters.
Later in the day I came across this, a slightly different long Post Card from Bob Lee's Islander. I don't have a scanner but it's got amazing details in person.
Well things were looking up and then I got the big fella on the right in this shot. I was told he is from the Aku Aku but I don't know. I put a standard size one there for comparison. He's OMC and larger than the others I have.
Now comes the strange part. I didn't think the mug could be from the Aku Aku because I could swear the dealer said he worked at the Hilton and I don't remember there being a Hilton near the Cambridge Aku Aku. Well, today I found something interesting a couple of matchbooks & a TV ashtray. Note the Cambridge Address on the Aku Aku ones.
Flipped it over & look what was there!!! Hmmmmm....

Are these paper coasters from Don The Beachcomber? Found these in Dallas so it's probably safe to assume they came from the old Dallas location. First time I've ever found anything from there.
Generic tiki mug, looks like Jard Products, probably just a souvenir mug
2 Quon-Quon cups
Orchids R-86 bowl
PMP mug, unmarked. EXTREMELY worn...almost looks like he's been waiting outside for years. This is also smaller than similar PMP mugs and lighter weight.

Well I decided to stop into this antique mall on the way home yesterday. Never had much luck in the antique malls but I figured "what the hell"... Well, I'm glad I stopped!
A pair of TV's Big Shots and the Tapa Punch mug from the Hilton Hawaiian Village. All 3 in pretty darn nice shape.
