Okay I screwed up big time. The mug is from the Outrigger not the Islander. Sorry for the lost sleep I caused a couple of people!!! Thats what I get for posting at work when my stuff is at home.........

Yep, I was flying high on that find and a BIG YES - it was the Stockton Islander Green Maoi!! It is so cool looking!

Well I know they have been a buzz on the board, but I picked up a few mugs (an dupes) at KOHLS on sale for half the price. I left a few in case ma and pa want to get them for future b-day gifts. I also went to Dollar Tree... and yes, got all 8 of the statues and one palm tree statue. Feeling lucky I hit up a nearby thrift store and as I turned the isle to the glassware, there was the Dizknee Werld Polynesian Village Goblet stareing right at me (and a blue half off sticker to boot). I wanted to press my luck even more but my wahine was getting tired, so we just came home.


PS I checked the bottoms of the KOHLS mugs. They have no markings on the bottom indicating if they where used from OoH molds. But they are dishwasher and microwave safe.

WOW Unkle John...awesome score! My local Kohls never had those mugs. I've been checking weekly. I did manage to grab all 4 sets from Marshalls the other day.

I must have been a good boy, but my luck tiki underware probably helped.

A great day for fixtures this weekend, first I found these two swags with the faux shell design for $5 a pop at a thrift then at an estate sale these fake wood 3 way lamps, that are now showcase lights, I got to make fake bamboo via instructions on another thread, pretty. Nothing like artifice and illusion. But the Twilight Zone experience was today walking out of gas station and spying a coconut mug resting on a news paper machine made by Haeger. I feel like I'm, being rewarded by a Cargo Cult.

TikiTrevor,
It's worthless. Send it to me, I'll dispose of it safely for you!

Actually, it's a version of a headhunter mug I believe. Several other people should have some info for you, I'm at work and haven't yet memorized which page it's on! Nice find, I like that one!

Trevor, that's the headhunter mug from the Mai Kai in Fort Lauderdale. Nice score.

I am now going to predict what Trevor will ask next.....and the answer is....somewhat rare, I would consider it a real good find, they were still using them at the Mai Kai up untill last week when I went and they didn't serve the Headhunter in it's proper mug.

At my local restaurant supply store I found three tiki mugs made by Libbey. One is bamboo shaped, black with I think a red-orange rim. The other two are tiki, one being Easter islandish and the other being harder to describe. I should have all three tonight and I’ll take some pictures. They are really heavy and intended for heavy use, at $3 each I was very happy. Has anyone seen these? I did a couple searches and didn’t come up with anything.

Those are the ones. I'm new to this so I was wondering if I can ask you some questions about Libbey? Do they come out with new designs often? Has anyone been able to find the tiki mug section on the Libbey website? I looked and looked but was defeated.

By the way I got into tiki mugs by gathering items for my mom's 50th birthday party and I'm hooked. Anyway she's an antique dealer and afterwards she's planning on selling most of the stuff (Hawiian and Tiki) at the Long Beach flea market. I'll go ahead and post when that will be if that's alright. It will be sometime after August but I'm not sure when.

Welcome aboard SBOJ! I found these mugs on the abestkitchen.com website. I also was unable to find them on the Libbey site. These are the only ones I'm aware of that they put out. They look like good mugs for daily use or an "all-out-break-the-glasses-in-the-fireplace" party. But the designs are pretty sketchy. Far better to buy from Munktiki or TikiFarm if you want cool modern mugs.

Sporkboyofjustice, check out this previous thread concerning Kon-Tiki in Tucson and Libbey mugs: http://tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=8141&forum=2&2
The one I have seems to be a bit of a different color and was a salesman's sample.
I'd still like to know if Kon-Tiki uses these now; I should be in Tucson for a few days next month so I'll make a bee line there when I arrive. I'm pretty sure these mugs were on the Libbey site late last year. Btw, cool name...sounds like one of the Mystery Men.
