Can anyone tell me what the deal is with this? I found it at work. I work in a church thrift store. Ok so I was going to take a picture but my batteries are dead. I found this picture of a similar one. the only apparent difference is the coloring. mine is more beige. Anyway I find cool stuff at work all the time and I was just curious.

I'm sure it's nothing of value.

You should ship it to me for a closer look. That way I can be certain.

It's a mug from the Hawaii Kai, obviously. Great Tiki-type palace in NYC, long closed. Check out Sven's little padded tome for more info, including a copy of the Hawaii Kai ad containing this mug. They used it to serve the "Wahine's Downfall" cocktail and it was a souvenir item, maybe $3 total for beverage and mug.

Well hell, there's no beverage in it now. Whaddya say to $2.50?

If you're not a mug collector, you're off to a good start if you decide to become one.

So what's it like working in a church thrift shop?

Is it a paid position, or volunteer?

Do priests come in often?

sweet. thanks for your help. I don't specifically collect tiki stuff, but I dig it. I basically collect whatever cool junk I find. Example: I found this exact shaker at value village for 50 cents! http://www.starliteroom.com/html/barware/cs024.htm

Anyway, I live in Quebec, Canada, so I'm always sorta thrilled when I find stuff like this because it's pretty rare around here. Oh and working at a church thrift store totally RULES. Old people get rid of crazy stuff. They think "Arghhh....I've had this thing for fifty years. time to get rid of it." and they don't know the value of anything. And there's always cool naked lady stuff.

Rather amusing that people bestow the church thrift shop with naked lady items in quantity.
