I'm looking to interview a few collectors (via email) for some articles on thetikipedia.com. If you are an avid collector of something tiki—mugs, matchbooks, menus, postcard, etc—and would like to participate, please send me a PM. Thank you!

Don't let the lack of responses here fool you—I've gotten some fantastic responses so far from some awesome collectors, and looking for more. I'll post a link to the interviews once they're finished up. In the meantime, I'm still hoping to talk to people who collect primarily menus, postcards, matchbooks, or other paper ephemera. Drop me a line if you're interested!

The first interview is up, with our very own PolyPop: http://www.thetikipedia.com/doku/doku.php?id=interviews:polynesianpop

More interviews coming soon!

Thanks again, PolyPop!

Nice!
I think the interview focus is to much on mugs, or maybe that's what you wanted.
But I do have mugs 200? the cool tiki I have is not mugs, it's Old stuff from old bars like the
Kahiki, those things have a much more unique past IMHO.
Sure not everybody has a lot of these items but it would be nice to know where at least some of it is.

Tried to add something to your list but got messed up in trying to sign up.
But then I did not try that hard.
Good Luck!

I'm hoping to interview collectors of various things, such as matchbooks, menus, maybe aloha shirts, etc, but so far mug collectors are primarily who I've heard from. They definitely represent the largest contingent of tiki collectors.

Can you tell me what you were trying to add to the list? Which list? I've got a lot of lists!

"Can you tell me what you were trying to add to the list? Which list? I've got a lot of lists!"

Wanted to add a post on Fish float lights as I have many, some new, some from Kahiki.
I don't know what list that would go in.

I read the interviews that you conducted with Swanky and PolyPop and they were really good.
