With unending praise to Ookoolady I am ecstatic to announce that I have received my holy grail! It arrived today and as you can see he's fitting in well with the other Hawaiian Room mugs!



I'd like to thank all of those who listened to me bitch over the last month about my unobtainable dream mug...(as I raise the mug above my head in victory)...this is for you!!!!

God bless you Lisa - I could die tonight a happy man! You've heard of the US hockey team's "miracle on ice"? This is Johntiki's "Miracle Online!" Long live Tiki Central! I love y'all!!!

Congratulations JohnTiki,
Seeing your mug reach it's final destination puts a smile on my face and warms my heart. I have got to say Tiki Central has got some of the most generous, friendliest folks I have had the pleasure of meeting and not meeting.
Ookoolady, that has got to be one of the nicest things I have seen a person do, just for the sake of being kind.
What a wonderful thing to have done.
You didn't just give someone a mug that they had been searching along time for.
But you helped restore this persons (ME ) faith in human nature with a single act of kindness.
I have seen countless people, virtual strangers, extend such kindnesses to each other here.
Purple Jade, Bongofury, DrZ, Iuka Grogg, Hanford, TheChikiTiki, Alnshely, KukuiNut, Floratina, Tiki_Bong are just a few (there have been many more) from my own personal expieriences have all made a difference here for me.
Not all of these people gave me some"THING" tangible.
But shared a welcoming gesture, a smile and took the time to make me feel like I had made a new friend.
Not to mention ALL the events/parties where people have allowed us into their homes to share in their generosity and hospitality with nothing expected in return other than for us to have a good time.
Thanks so much everyone at Tiki Central.

Forever a Pollyanna ~ DawnTiki

Congrats!

Every so often we get to have one of those days where everything is right in our world... glad to see someone as passionate about a mug as you get it, rather than just being bought randomly and checked off someones master list. Mix up your favorite potion, kick back and enjoy your new prize.

Congrats John! I knew if I held out long enough someone else would hook you up! Ookoolady, a true heroine! Now, if someone could just send me a Luau 400 mug....

Johntiki, it seems like you've had some major tiki scores recently! The best I can do this year is a Dynasty Wholesale version of the Orchids R-5 I found for $.59...not even worth mentioning in Tiki Finds.

Congrats!

Or a Tiki Bob for poor old Kono...

Yes, that's right. I don't have a Tiki Bob! I've got a small to medium collection of 150-170 mugs and I'm pretty satisfied with it. The glaring omission is Tiki Bob. Especially since tikifish told me that it's based on a Fang tribal mask. I must have one! I've got some trade bait (but not too much). When I get a Tiki Bob then I'm sure I'll have a new glaring omission.
