Cyndi, Overlook nothing in a thrift store. It's common to find the taller mugs mixed in with vases-the "mugs" are usually with the coffee mugs. Find them with the "Dustcatchers" (ceramic figures,souvenirs,memento's, etc.). I've found them among dish-ware, toys, store display's, even found one in a purse. One of my favorites had a plastic bouquet glued in it.
Lot's more tip's will follow from our fellow TC'ers.
Cheers, and good hunting

Thanks cyndigo - we haunt the thrift shops, antique stores and of course when we wanna drop some cash ebay And as Umi said- keep your eyes out everywhere in the thrift shops. I know lots of the antique booth people around here haunt them too, so it's a right time, right place kinda thing.

After checking out the Rattan thread and seeing people's rattan fish tanks I got in a " I GOTTA HAVE ONE!" mood. Amazingly enough haunting craigslist for about a month - I found one! After some trials and tribulations in obtaining the piece, discovering that my leak fix I thought worked didn't after it was full of water and rocks inside the house and general pain in the buttness dealing with it - we decided to go with a faux terrarium / tiki display.





The curtains are Shag Hulikai Fabric. (Another finished project!).

We did end up getting a fish tank to hold fish too - but that's photos & a saga for another day - not quite done with that area yet.

Thanks to everyone for their ongoing encouragement!

Neat idea on re-purposing the fish tank as a display case! Well executed, too.

Not sure how I missed this thread originally. Great job on the bar.

You have a wonderful collection of mid-century stuff and are pulling it all together in one cool, swank place.

Love what you did with the fishtank. Those old fishtanks (be it rattan or not) can be a really hassle. I think your decision to turn it into display was great.

Fish tank looks fabulous...what a wonderful little home for those mugs to live in.

We moved to a new place in January - with more room for tiki! Here's a few pictures of the new space


There's actually a fireplace behind this shelf - but we needed more wall space


Jane the bartender has since gotten a new dress... but our light up bar back wasn't as much as a pain to put up the second time!


Our back gate needed to be sanded and painted - but we gave it a quick tiki makeover instead.

Beautiful new space. Shame you had to cover that fireplace, but I completely understand needing wall space.
