Holy f***kin' crap is right! Apparently, Punxatawney Phil came out of his hole for your Groundhogs Day sale, didn't see his shadow but instead and convinced 'surffreak' to drop nearly $1700 on what should have been about $200 worth of mugs! Unless you're a seller, beware of groundhogs offering mug-buying tips!

Congrats, Midnite on a VERY fine day - the winter must be over!!

(will you be having another sale soon, so those of us without Lotto winnings to spend might have a chance?)

Man, we going to be living this sale down for a long time. I can just see the Tiki Crawl now. Thanks for all the congrats, much appreciated. Funny that I start this topic, bitch about the prices on Ebay, then this happens. Still not gonna pay what it takes to get the Holy Grail Sufferin ' B, though.

Would like to have more sales, but the Tiki inventory just took a major hit. Plus, it is getting very difficult to get things. Will keep looking...and listening, listening is important too.

Maybe a President's Day sale...Hail to the Chief and goodwill toward men, all that stuff.

Everyone check out yoho-yoho Ebay items!

Holy crap, Midnight!

Just saw that closing for Tiki Bob!

Unbelievable. Just when I thought it was safe to go back on Ebay...

How's Aloha Hut?

Congrats!

I guess my $25.00 bid didn't cut the mustard!

That and the Walt Disney World Polynesian Room frosted glass goblet. I found 2 of them at Value Village yesterday (one small, one big). Not really my favourite mug (it's not really even a mug) but of course I couldn't leave them there!

Hey ya Uncle Arty,

"How's Aloha Hut? "
Displayed prominently in the permanent collection of the Midnite Tiki Mug Museum. It is one of our fave mugs, not selling it, nope...not for $500, uh maybe for $501. Did see an Aloha Hut matchcover on Ebay, but we like whole matchbooks...it is a neat sign though.

It was a good sale; many pieces went to TC members, which is good. It is becoming increasingly harder to acquire duplicates for new Tiki sales, though. Our sale mug inventory that was once a nice collection on its own is now a few Tepco pirate mugs and some assorted Trader Vic flotsam.

Thanks to all who bid,
midnite

Hey ya Pop!

re:"Are you buying? (nudge, nudge...)"

For you? Of course....

I had better check that RSVP list for the crawl, see how many past Midnite Tiki Sale customers or trade partners are making it up here. May need a few extra straws!

F&@#% unbelievable? Over 600.- bucks for a Tiki Bob's!??? I wonder how many are gonna pop up on e-bay now!
Congrats midnite, and, by the way, what's my kickback?
I remember a time when this mug, before it's cultural context was reveiled,was considered ugly, downright UN-Tiki by some...

Tiki Bob's is my favourite mug, bar none. I wish I had one! But of course I'm only willing to pay up to 25 bucks for it - cause the optimist in me thinks I still might find one at a thrift store, and the Scots in me is just too damned cheap to pay more.

Tiki Bob is the perfect blend of 'googie' or 50's clean design with the tiki aesthetic - in a few swooping lines, he manages to convey a funky, futuristic, falernum-filled feeling. Just looking at his smiling face makes my heart go all a-twitter.

Hey Bigbro,
"Congrats midnite, and, by the way, what's my kickback?"

It's the Morgantown cocktail glass that should be your source for a royalty. I cannot count how many Ebay auctions I have seen that use the "holy grail" quote of yours.

Bob, the mug, has grown on me over the years, used to think it was very "un-Tiki". Tiki Bob's holds a special place in Tikidom for me, so it remains a focal point in my collection.

Now, for freaking me out-wise...that Steve Crane Assoc. "Bird of Paradise" takes the case. It is one scary chicken. Seems people want it though, yours has a good price with some time to go.

And tikifish, a Tiki Bob will come your way. May take as long as us getting a Sufferin B, but it will happen.

midnite

Hey everyone: The SF Tiki Crawl limo bus is being paid for by the Midnites! Woo hoo!

Seriously, congrats on that. I'll be shocked if it happens again, though. Clearly the result of two insane bidders.

Remember, on the SF Tiki crawl, we'll take a quick trip to see Bob in his natural setting. He's a pleasing burgundy color now, but I have plans for a great photo of him with TC people.

Well, I decided to splurge, so we will not be able to pay for the Tiki Bus at the Crawl. This is a lot for us for a mug, still cannot believe we did it, fifty bones:

Mainlander Buy Now

Then again, one sold later that evening for over $100. Still, $50...just about the most we've paid for a mug.
