At the tiki art 2 show this weekend I had talked to a few people about mug collecting. My thoughts where always I am not a tiki person, sure I like the occasional mug but I can quit any time I want to. After talking several people I started thinking about how much money I had spent on mugs and how many I had. I went home this weekend and started to count them. I came up with 55 mugs. do I have a problem? am I in denial, am I a tiki collector? should I talk to my therapist about "collection"? Is it weird that I use a Munktiki mug that I bought on ebay for $75 for to drink my tang in the morning?

You only have 55 mugs? That's *nothing*!

Yes, you're a collector. What's the problem?

Guys, be a little more sensitive, we should help him come to terms with his condition, he is obviously trying to come out of the closet!

One of something is a pre collection. Two of anything is a collection.

of course, if you'd like to be cured of this condition, just send everything to me.

some solutions are easy!

My thought this morning, I have been collecting mugs for a year and its the first thing that I can say I've collected. I have bought baseball card type stuff, but nothing of this level. The mugs that I buy are more then the pants that I wear. And I wear then for many many years. My parents have collections too that they have had for years (Makes for easy Christmas shopping).

When I started collecting a year ago I thought that the mugs looked good but that I wouldn't buy them. Then I thought that the price on the import Munktiki was a super price. I bought a couple and then more. I usually don't buy things that have shipping. Now I buy more tiki things then anything else. Yes I think it could very well be a problem.

I have more tiki mugs now then I have space for. That is a problem too. I think that I will start to cut back and later down the road, I can always buy them of Ebay. I can buy them off Ebay for probably the same price today. Inflation of the dollar will even it out and I will have a better paying job in the future too. I need to just be a fan on the sideline for now.

You're perfectly fine, Eric. When you start collecting acryllic grapes - that's when it's time to seek psychiatric help... Now, back to my collection of grapes...

Welcome, by the way!

Ewik, one thing is for sure, you are a tiki collector in denial. However you are in the right place amongst us tiki loving people. We understand.

Hello Eric
At this point in time I do not feel that you have a problem nor are you a Tiki Mug Collector. The official number for a Tiki Mug Collection is 56 or more with only 55 mugs you are still sane and in no need of a therapist.
Cheers
Munkle

Yep, Im afraid to say it - you're addicted. This is only the beginning though. You know you got it bad when you are putting your bodily organs on the black market because youve just seen a mint Ren Clarke mug on Ebay.
