As our collection grows, my wife and I are trying to come up with a nice way to display our tiki mugs. I'd love to hear and see how others are displaying their mugs. It's also a nice way to see other awesome collections.

I don't have a nice, dedicated display area yet but every time I'm at the pet store buying dog food I look for aquarium plants on sale and grab a couple. These are just some mugs I have on my desk with Ikea place mats behind as wallpaper and the plastic plants in-between. I think it adds a cool vibe (though I think I may have a tad too many plants in the pic, but you get the idea). Also had some multi-color Xmas lights running behind the mugs & plants and that looked cool...while they lasted.

Im always interested in this too

At the moment I store mine on my 'bar' - it's a battle between the booze & the knick knacks!





I also have 2 sharers on top of a wardrobe that wouldn't fit on the bar - they might get a shelf. I have 3 tiki plant pots on a windowsill with mint in them.

Trader Gino, I got fake flowers from ladies accessory stand to add a bit of colour (& will get more in time) but good call on the fish plants

What about you TikiTacky? Pics please!

ATP what are you using to underlight your mugs up there? Is it that flexi-tube of white Xmas lights type thing?

It's LED light ropes, I have tried the expensive LED strips
but they need more juice after 6' of length & get hot
the LED ropes come in many lengths & stay very cool and use little power & last a long time
and are cheap to boot...ATP approved!

Hemingway was a fascinating character, but the more I learned about him the less I was enamored. A violent, alcoholic misogynyst who was apparently a failed spy for the KGB (which us why the FBI notoriously kept close tabs on him). Truly a tragic figure.
