I am making it a mission to find you a replacement, RB.

This is the second "Three year old girl" related Ku tiki mug death. This one was mostly empty at it's demise. I try not to spend too much on tiki mugs as I actually use them... with alcohol. These are getting harder to find too. Tiki-Stan

Ouch. Yeah, that's how my head felt the morning after I went to Trader Vic's Happy Hour here in Hamburg.
Now you'll have to get the upcoming Book of Tiki mug.

Painful stuff. I have only two tiki mugs (I've had too many bad experiences with shipping, I really don't like Paypal, and Seattle's thrift stores have zero tiki, ever) but both of 'em would be hard to replace. Hope I never have any accidents with 'em, and condolences to all.

Not a tiki mug (or tiki anything) but I once bought a rare vintage ceiling fan off a guy, who berated me when I asked - nicely - if he'd disassemble it and pack well. He railed on me about having been in Iraq and Afganistan and how he knew how to pack from sending stuff home... Naturally it was an awful job. He took everything apart that shouldn't be taken apart, didn't disassemble the easy parts, and it arrived with pieces poking out of holes in the box and the whole thing bent out of shape. It WAS repairable, but... I feel your pain with regards to poor packing. And I still have photos of the box with parts visibly sticking out.

Aren't there any Tiki establishments in Seattle where you can pick up some tiki mugs for daily use?

Gah! That's so frustrating! I once received a mug - miraculously intact - stuffed in a bubble-wrap lined envelope.

First I break one myself when dusting a shelf.



Then after I stopped crying I searched out something to replace it. I found something really cool and guess what, lousy packaging caused me to be super bummed again when the box arrived and I opened it to find this:



I don't know how much more of this I can take.

Allright! My big ebay score made it!
I picked up the package up off the porch and heard that unmistakable, sickening sound of ceramic shards grinding together.
My first DOA.



My first volcano bowl


Maybe I can salvage it and make a tiki planter.


A one-of-a-kind, signed artist proof tiki planter.
With certificate of authenticity.


I don't understand what happened, from the exterior, there were no signs of damage to the package. And it seemed adequately packed when I opened it.
Man, why did it have to be this one? Why not some garden-variety coconut mug?!
