Big big thanks to TikiPug aka Jason Smith in NV. The Tiki Reviver/Book of Tiki cover mug from TikiFarm (which has a been a big lust object for me), an jumbo Den of Sin rocks glass (which will definitely get some heavy use) and some really wonderful go withs (including a quality hula girl finally scaled for my truck's dash which is too close to the mirror for a more commonly-sized wiggler). Major thanks, and happy holidays! Also = love that Aloha Hawaii stamped piece of cloth...what's the story there?

I received my package from Mr. Smiley and what a surprise: A Frankie's One Armed Bandit mug, 4 tall plastic Trader Vic mugs and Frankie's swizzle and cocktail picks. The One Armed bandit has always been a favorite...and a good thing too. I had two swaps going this time and I received the same Frankie's mug from both. Who wudda thunk it? Also a few weeks ago a friend visited Las Vegas and brought back the same mug. The official definition of a collection is three so I now have an official collection of One Armed Bandits...Neat.





If three is a crowd, you always have some spare mugs to trade next time!

I just want to reinterate for the next swap:

If you are sending boxes that contain chipped/cracked/reglued items perhaps these tiki mug swaps are not for you.

Although no one expects to open their box and find a Tiki Bob its still exciting to get a well thought out box that does not look like the bottom of a Goodwill bin.

I have heard from a few people over the past few swaps about receiving boxes that contained such items and it really is a dissapointment.

I like that the swaps are fun and even though we may receive duplicate mugs its all about sending and receiving boxes stuffed full of tiki goodness--
As they say : send what you would like to receive.

I hate having to mention this here but I am hoping this is the last time I have to say anything.


Also Surfalia your box is being shipped today/tomorrow. When you recieve it I am sure you won't mind the slight delay

And to whomever sent me my box I am picking it up from the post office this weekend. (and yes I know you know I know who my swapper is but why spoil anyone else's fun??)

My trade arrived safe & sound last Friday. I received a box full of goodies from "House of Ku" Freddie. If my memory is correct, I was his trader a few years ago.


A bamboo mug from Fisherman's Wharf, Honolulu. A cool vase or pencil holder. A Coco Joe's statue, a little wood tiki. Swizzle sticks from, Tiki Farm, Sahara Dining Lounge, Edmonton & an unknown one. A really neat two sided tiki key chain.

Freddie, Thanks for the great package & Happy Holidays to you too!!

Got my package last week, but was totally, insanely busy and did not have a chance to post pics until now...

WOW, what a haul! Mucho mahalos to Tiki Shaker... it was an endless box of tiki treasure!

Here's the whole package:


And some of the highlights:

A mug from Daytona's Hawaiian Inn, a huge volcano bowl, an ashtray from the Lanai in San Matteo, matches from The Outrigger, The Luau, Kelbos Fairfax, and (non-tiki, but cool none the less) Pie King in Arcadia.

Ephemera and cordials!

A box of vintage Jaquin's liqueurs (and I cannot tell a lie... one was cherry flavored, in a George Washington shaped bottle!), two small vintage magazines packed with cool graphics and great cocktail recipes, and Puerto Rican Rumsters, awesome little cut out figures used for decorating cocktail glasses (and as I'm typing this, I just realized there's rum recipes on the backs of those, too!)

Plus paper parasols, a vintage fish-shaped bottle opener, a tiki candle, swizzles, candy canes, Christmas party straws, and interspersed among the packing popcorn- snowflakes, ornaments, and tinsel, making the whole package like a snowbank packed with tropical treats!

...and a paper lantern with a festive holiday greeting from Tiki Shaker... Mahalos again!!!!

That is so cool! This swap has had so many cool boxes. I'm out of town for at least another day but my wife told me my box has arrived safe and sound. She is waiting until I get back to open it and would only tell me that it came from a warm island! I can't wait.
