Mugs can be pricey, Tiki menus can be like pricey pricey!

Tahitian

I guess they are more perishable then mugs, paper against ceramics and all. Hey, doesn't paper beat rock, why shouldn't paper beat clay pottery!?!

Is it me, or is it getting entirely too difficult (ne expensive) to "win" anything n Ebay? C'est la vie, if you cannot beat them...you must sell to them. So I will, next week big sale coming, stay tuned.

^I knew that Space Tiki's tikis looked familar. The tiki on the menu and the tiki in Space Tiki's "Wrong Black Hole" are identical.

Doris often sells lots of tiki swizzle sticks on Ebay from her extensive collection and she is a great person to deal with!

WOW! They look kinda cool all lined up together like that... in a Warhol kinda' way.

As for menu pricing... Damn, $182. I'm with Midnite Tiki, I hope danlovestikis, tigertlily, and those guys from Texas hit your auctions.

Aloha

Not sure what is the punchline, but this is a joke:

Barnum Tiki

This is in some ways worse than the $300 Mai-Kai mug auction. This black mug is old, granted, but is normally available for $10 on Ebay. The newer version of this mug, produced today for various events, is much less defined and lower quality.

I do not like seeing auctions like this, it contributes to a faulty idea of "worth".

Holy toledo, the winner on that bid has the User ID of vigilante_carlstroem. That's the guitarist for The Hives. I wonder if it's really him and if he's really into Tiki. I notice he's also bidding on lots of music equipment and hawaiian shirts that are 2XL, which would be about right- he's a big boy.

Just a thought.

Hey Greg,
Yep, that is a real eye roller. In truth it is probably worse than the Islander bowl at $200. Over thirty for that headhunter Orchids mug is certainly way WAY over the usual rate of what, $8?

My luck, as I sell a bunch of stuff next week, all the deep pocket collectors will be empty pocketed.

mauicoconut is a new guy (0) feedback. If he were paying attention he could have had 5 of these plus 2 last week for $35.

Should we start a new topic for "stupid" bids?

I was about to post:
"You're right, the bidder is new, which I didn't notice. Must allow for youthful exuberance, I suppose. Let's hope the mug holds a place of honor in this ebayers tiki- bar-to-be"

But there is such a thing as a feeding frenzy among new collectors, it would appear.

maybe the problem isn't the prices things are fetching, especially since tiki gets more and more popular every day, but that we are all REALLY CHEAP!!! I've never heard people piss and moan so much over the prices of things, not that any of us would give back the money if some newbie ran up one of our auctions. I think the most important thing about ebay is that no one ever spends more than they want too, which after a couple days at antique stores, I am forever grateful for.

I do think that the crazy prices are going to be the Disco shirts of 2003. I used to be able to get 20-30 bucks a piece for them a couple years ago, and now I can't give them away. Save your pennies to the day all us tight-wads can feel safe on ebay again!
