Packing peanuts would have saved it..... maybe.. I've had good luck when using them..

Little crazy glue and as good as new!

Sorry, that sad.........

A number of months back I ordered the Bowling Family set of mugs from a seller on Ebay. Merv and Mort made it OK, but unfortunately Maury got hit with a strike...



The seller was really great about it. He refunded the money for the mug and I was able to re-purchase another Maury from Tiki Farm. So if any of you ever need to buy a mug from ParisDougieFresh on Ebay you know he'll treat you right.

Here's one of a few of our broken packages. All the wrapping you see there is all the wrapping that was in the box. Seriously.



I was looking for the right Frankoma T-10 for a long time, and this is the one I got.



And here are pieces of a couple of other disasters.



I'm saving pieces for mosaics. I've accumulated a few over the past few years.

What happens when something is packed fairly well but USPS just doesn't want you to have it:



The box didn't even look damaged...

Luckly it was insured, but that only replaces the money not the mug.

I want to give the MUNKTIKI people a big high five and a whole lotta kudos for all the peanuts and packing they use. All the mugs I've gotten from them have been pristine. I sure appreciate it. Also that Crazy Al, the Wildsman, the folks at Tiki Farm, and the VanTiki Island sure do a great job also. I actually think the majority of the folks here know the deal, and respect the tiki. Mahalo to all the picky packers, I lift an intact mug to your greatness.

Agreed! All of the manufactures/artists do an excellent job. The problem packers are the eBay people that don't know/care about what they're selling. Especially folks who do estate type sales. It's just something they made money off of, not a piece of art, and that is how they pack it.

Not a mug but it is a mighty tiki misfortune.

Before I found my first mug, I starting gettin' tiki'd by grabbing a small notepad, writing "secret tiki drinks" on it and filling it up with recipes.

Money being tight, I checked the Beachbum books out at the library and hand wrote several choice cocktails. I copied others from this site. I got others from friends, old books and bartenders.

This was my pride and joy with great recipes, tweaks, tasting notes, and little drawings to go along with most recipes.

Anyway - it ended up in the washer after my last business trip and now my beautiful little notepad is paper mache all over my work clothes.

Looks like amazon is going to sell another copy of Remixed. Guess it ain't all bad.

Another mug that USPS didn't want me to have:



Amazingly the other two mugs in the box survived, no thanks to the packing...

It would've been a gift to me, except for the mishap. The seller wrapped it very carefully in two sheets of newsprint and put it in a Tyvek envelope. He was surprised it didn't make it in one piece, actually words "huh, who'd a thought". Seriously?!?!

It WAS a maori style from the Hawaiian Inn Daytona Beach FL. At least it refunded the money I superglued it back together as well as I could (not very well).

You have to post a picture of the repaired version. I don't think I would have even attempted it on a piece in the many...pieces.

I have thought about using super glue to put mine back together, but what would I do with it?

Is there a market for glued together mugs? (I suppose in this case the front of the mug is mostly intact.)

Otherwise maybe I'll save the pieces to make a mosaic or something...

The front's not bad:

The back's not. It was hard to keep it round.

But I hadn't seen it before, there aren't too many maori ones, and it was from a location!
One good side at least.
