Are they even out in stores yet? I thought they only had a few at the launch party? I know Shagmart has put them off for a while.

I talked last week to a store in Northern California and they had no idea when they would come in. She said she would not set up a list to reserve one and when they came in she would put them on the shelf, first come first serve. Did not know how many she would get. She has been getting 5-10 calls per day for the past 2 months and said she will be glad when it's over and they are all sold.

My understanding was that Tiki Farm kept the first 100 "in house", and there was only 14 (#101-#115) at the bash. Don't know if the other 36 that were on a list got their's yet. So I guess any # over 151 would be from a retailer that was able to get a shipment.

The first 100 numbered sets are going to Shagmart. We shipped out today about 250 Moatu sets and about 75 Akuku sets. The rest will ship out in early Jan, 2003.

Let me be the first (I think) to reveal that there were FOUR sets available as of December 21st at:

"Bamboo2U"
Tiki superstore.
1240 N Coast Hwy 101 Encinitas CA 92024
760-943-6284

And...yes, they were priced at $149.

Let the mad dash begin.

I'm boycotting these Shag decanters.

I really don't see a reason for these decanters to be made in such a limited edition. Shag's popularity is through the roof and this set could easily sell twice the number being made, but by making the supply so limited (and not even selling them through either the Tiki Farm website or Shag's site), it just feels exploitive to me.

I'm cool with Munktiki and other Tiki Farm limited editions, because the designs are new and who wants to end up with a warehouse full of unsold mugs, but there is really no reason for the Shag decanters to be so hard to get and so limited.

It sure does feel good to rant!

i see a little different perspective: having limited editions, helps the retailers who carry the Shag/Tiki Farm merchandise ~ to get people INTO their stores.

i love websales too, but the limited edition items gets ME out shopping for tiki ~ and i'm THRILLED when i find a little retailer, with a case of mugs ~ all at retail prices.

have a tikiriffic new year!
