That thing. To think it was one of the last objects I photographed for the BOT (loaned by Martin McIntosh all the way from Australia!), and the reaction it got since!

What I am still hoping to find somewhere is a period photo of a beehived beauty drinking out of one, we know it must exist!?

In the brochure on BOT P. 44 they do not have any on the table, but you can make out two behind the bar, on the shelves above the mixers (magnifying glass needed)

Having "Ren Clark" on the bottom mean's it'll never go un-noticed on Ebay. It'll never sell cheap. Unless you find it in the wild (and look at where that one is selling from! Don't give up hope!) you'll have to spend big to own it now.

Let's get ready to (RUM)ble!!! In the blue corner, weighing in at nearly 1 million mugs and currently holding the cruiser weight belt, danlovestikis! And in the black corner from an undisclosed location in the U.S. With over 3 zillion tiki mugs and the current heavyweight champion of the world, kohalacharms!

On eBay? I recall a Blue Hawaii Tiki Bob that sold for over a grand. That was a while ago. Some individual mugs have hit the $500-700 range of late. Of course, there was the Kahiki Mystery bowl that went for 800 bones. I recall a Zombie Village fogcutter that did very, very well for a local seller.

That's just eBay, private sales are a whole different matter. Or so I am told. I know nu-theeng!

I don't see this one going a lot higher, I think Dan has thrown in the towel. Could be wrong, or there could be a little-known but wildly deep-pocketed collector lurking in the wings, ready to pounce. They're out there, serious big game hunters, they just don't do a lot of bidding on eBay.

It's a neat piece, but is it necessarily that Tiki? Ha ha.

midnite...who should put the lid on that can o' worms!

Q: Please do not be tempted by offers to sell off eBay. If someone should get close to tempting you, I would appreciate the opportunity to beat their offer. Thanks, Frank

A: Morning Frank, Like we stated on our discription, this auction is for 7 days and NO buy it now. Good Luck!



Now that's what I call covering all your bases.

"Please don't end the auction early. But if you do, do so with me."

Good ol' Frank.

Serious question: how many of you would think it fun or gratifying to win auctions by a) skullduggery or b) paying more than anyone has ever paid for such an item before?

To me, "a" is too much like ripping off someone who is gullible in a crooked deal ("Oh Mrs Jones, your late husband's old Corvette isn't worth much, but tell ya what, I'll give you five hundred bucks so you don't have to go to the trouble of listing it and dealing with all those pesky buyers..."), and as far as "b" goes, if I paid the highest price ever for a certain mug then I would feel like I lost the auction. Like I'm a rube. I mean, in the end it's just a dang mug. Maybe it's just me but I don't see the allure in getting something simply by spending more $$ than anyone else is willing to. OK, so I paid more money than the whole rest of the world thinks the item is worth. Yay, I won!

I am Koalacharms.

However, I am very secretive about my identity and personal info. Well, not like our illustrious host, HL. He's cloak 'n dagger. I'm more cash 'n carry, with a hint of gypsy in me. From the old country, whatever they call it nowadays.

The Koala man? Never met him, if he really exists. I don't think it's one guy, per se. I've only dealt with his underlings, his patsies, the guys in dark suits and sunglasses. No senses of humor in that lot. Nope.

If you've got stuff he wants, he already knows about it. Trust me. You'll be contacted, you might not even know it at first, but it's him. Treat him right, give him the best stuff... you get perks.

Now, on this Ren Clark mug thing. Does eBay work like the Miss America Pageant? Cause like I am 11th runner-up(under bidder) and if the other 10 bidders are "unable" to fulfill their duties, it's mine, right? I mean, things could happen. Ya know, to the others, accidents and such. Just saying, in case.

Wow, this thing is at $742 with about 5 minutes left to go. It's going to go for at least twice what the last one of these that turned up on ebay went for, and I though that was too much!

$1325!!!

Is this the highest price ever paid for a tiki mug? If this keeps up wall street is going to forming tiki mug mutual funds.
