Eggs actly!! If you have it made in China or other than America (or your native country) then you will likely have your item sold (on the side) with out your consent to others. Usually perfectly legal(except to original country or origen). It is China ya know.
It happens in many industries. Medication, Bicycles, cigtarettes, gloves, handbags, jewelry. If you think it is cheaper to have it manufactured in China there is a good reason. They will undercut you!



EDIT: His "Vintage Unusual Tiki Mug Vase " looks exactly like my two "El Bastardos" I bought for $12 (I think it was 12) at Freak Factory. He still has them too.

Well, at least these knock-offs are not the same mug cause they're not the same quality as a Munktiki mug. But, the Monkey mug is actually selling for a lot more a Munktiki mug. Go fugure, its the color thats doing it.

I remember this being talked about in this thread:

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=11346&forum=5&33

And I too was surprised to see these knock-offs on ebay. This ebay seller may or may not have picked these up at a Zeller's themselves, but it is interesting to note that these mugs originally sold for about $4 Canadian each when I first came across them.
