I found these odd. No mention of Tiki Farm yet look identical in appearance.


This one was funny...."Duece" indeed...

I checked these out with the original "Tikifarm" mugs
they are some minor details missing from the mugs on eBay
these look like knock off's, Time to let Holden know about these....

Checked with the seller and was told these have no brand name or logo
on the bottom, so these are knockoffs/copies
Do not buy! TCers

I sent a PM to Holden.

When I saw Duece, I called shenanigans! Messaged the farm as well.

I guess this means that Tiki Farm is in the same league as Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Gucci

I checked with Bosko and his mug is the real deal, so it's just the Tikifarm mugs that are not Kosher.

Whoa! I'm flattered and annoyed, how did they make my Mana Mana mug look like it was drawn by small child.
The capitalist in me goes "They are using my design without paying", while the artist "It's not like I haven't borrowed from other artists" and the tiki collector "I want one for my collection".

This is the same company that is selling on eBay, I don't know if they are at fault here
they could just be buying from a shady importer? then again, who knows?
