Did some exploring of the Palm Springs junk/antique/estate shops during the Tiki Oasis 3 weekend. I was actually quite shocked to find many mugs living in the wild. At one shop alone I saw 10+ vintage mugs. Unfortunately, they were rather common OMC, Orchids, Daga, Westwood, and Trader Vic's vessels. But they were a decent price, most around $10. However, one shop owner said that someone else had just been in and cleaned them out of most of their mugs. So, someone here apparently made a major score. I'm really curious what I missed. If anyone else had good fortune in their PS tiki hunting I'd like to hear about it...

It's just a little coffee table.....
My little girl uses it as her coloring/fingerpainting table.

HA! Just kidding!

Yes, definitely a nice score there SCD! I wish I could have been the one posting the pics of that piece. : ) I saw a lot of very cool mid-century furniture for sale but no Witco (and I was looking for it).

Oasis was sold out by the time I got someone to drive out with me so we went to the Shag show and invaded the shops. I found a flaming red The Tikis mug. It has a little chip on the rim and wasn't cheap but it's very, very pretty.

It's just 'raining Witco' for him, isn't it?
