I forgot all about it but don't really care. You know that most people would have bought two sets and they'll be up on eBay within a few days. I still won't be interested.

Well, there you go...your lack of interest is duly noted. Glad that you didn't miss anything Swizzle.

Been waiting for years for the new Tiki Farm Shags to roll out. Was on my computer at 5:50. Refreshed the page and bought a set immediately once it became available. Got through the order process and rec'd a confirmation e-mail from Tiki-Farm at 6:04. Was happy as hell.

Now today I got an e-mail from Tiki Farm that said that my order was placed after they had sold out - so no new Shag mugs. I have been on an economy imposed tiki mug buying hiatus for a couple of years. I explained to my wife that these mugs were "different" and got her blessing. SO, you could understand my excitement in getting a set. Alas - I don't think it was meant to be. Thanks Tiki Farm for ruining my day!

Same thing happened with me. I completed the form within a couple of minutes immediately at 6pm, and my confirmation email was timestamped 6:05 and I got that sad message today as well. Ah well, that was $150 (after tax and shipping) I really couldn't afford to spend anyway, as the fox said about the tikis, er, grapes.

I heard a lot of denials happened even with speediness.

Your order has been successfully received by Tiki Farm and is being processed.

I then offered to pay double for the exact #23 of 250.

THAT SUCKS!!! If they are going to virtually sale out in store, then they shouldn't bait everyone with such high expectations. At least my denial was almost immediate. I am sorry you got jerked around. Not very much ohana in this process, eh?

I represent another 6:03 confirmation that ended up getting denied.

I suggested via email that perhaps the next time the offer could be limited to 1 set per person to help even it a little bit.

Add me to the 6:03 list. I was so excited to get a set. I'd been waiting for these for a long time. Then...24 hours later the "well...yo ureally didn't get a set" email. The thrill of victory...and the agony of defeat. I still ove Tiki Farm though. The TV Chicago mugs are awesome. I just don't understand why they couldn't cut off the "successful order confirmations" when the mugs sold out.

After years of quick Tiki Mug sell outs, I had worked out the system of having two different browsers up (Chrome & Opera) and also having all my address info auto filled. With this I was able to get a 6:01pm order that shipped out yesterday. I've missed out on sweet mugs in the past but I've never blamed the makers/sellers. I think anyone who has bought a Shag mug in the past knew this would sell out quick. Tiki Farm isn't really a big online business as they do more in making mugs for companies.... So, they don't have a super high tech inventory control program like Target or Home Depot..... Hell, back in the day you had to call in and hope you got someone when these orders went down. Of course that beat getting trampled at Disneyland during a big merchandise event.... Thanks to Holden and the gang for putting out yet another great piece.

Good advice, I was attempting to do the same.
Looks like between 6:00, and 6:02 might have been the sweet spot...

It was good to hear someone got some. Lucky you!
Please tell us what #s you get when you get them...
I will live vicariously --with your fastest order on TC!
