I'd bet that at least 80% of us have those guys... I know I do. Congrats! Enjoy the word of mug fun!

Congratulations on your mug purchases. I don't have an overwhelming collection of mugs and don't have the knowledge or money to purchase the historic collector items that the experts buy, but I love my collection. I buy from artists on TC and from Tiki Farm and Bars when I find them. You do what you can, when you can, and over time you will acquire a little ceramic heaven and then you gotta build shelves and host a crawl and buy that print and get those shirts and get that giant tiki that will just fit in your corner and........

I love them! A nice way to start with a pop of color!

I also just started collecting about a month ago. It's just a little addicting, right? I needed a home for the 12 mugs I have acquired, so I spent 2 days searching a for a round rattan wall shelf and now on it goes...

Can you hear the drums and the chanting "one of us, one of us" in the background? I sure can.

I think the Accoutrements mugs were my first also!
You're off to a good start

Such a positive vibe on this thread, Maika'i Na'au, you guys are pretty great. I bought those mugs too, from Archie McPhee's around '95, long before I knew of any Tiki Ohana.

I always said I wasn't going to collect tiki mugs. A year and a half ago I bought one. There're like rabbits, they keep multiplying. I now have 25 but I'm not collecting tiki mugs.

At least yours are ceramic. All of GROG' tiki mugs are plastic.





Doug the Tiki Mug once told me that plastic is the only way to go poolside.
