I feel like mine are fairly modest in comparison...

1) the brown 2004 Enchanted Tiki Room 40th anniversary Pele mug (which I had in my grasp, but felt I couldn't justify the $50 because it was that same trip to Disneyland in 2005 that introduced me to Tiki... if only I had known... now I can't justify the $200)

2) the 1st edition Trader Sam's Rum Barrel in white and brown.

3) a classic Tiki Bob.

4) a Trader Vic's Nautilus (not unattainable, but I tell you, that shipping charge to Canada is a killer).

5) the last slot on these lists are always the hardest, because I know right away what my most wanted ones are, but by the end there are a bunch of really good ones that could all fit here equally. Most of them are more because I want to go to the bar itself: a Don the Beachcomber coconut, a Frankie's slot machine, a La Mariana Sailing Club float mug, a Three Dots and a Dash urchin, a Smuggler's Cove sunken tiki... I also really like the Tiki Caliente 7 octopus mug... I dunno'...

That was exactly my first thought. I'm not sure anyone on here knows who he is anymore.

Funny my first thought was a lot like your first thought.
But then owning all those places looks a lot better on the outside that actually owning them.

Tiki Ti would be good as it's small.

I can only imagine that Kohalacharms' collection must be absolutely staggering in person.

For me it would be:

Trader Vic's gremlin bowl
Trader Vic's kava bowl
Hurricane (SF) skull mug
Zombie Village mug
Trader Vic's bowl or mug with the lovely Hawaiian lady

I don't know how you would have time for anything else but the searching bidding on and then receiving, storing all that tiki, it would be a full time job.

Some jobs do have a lot of time where you could do it from work.(Gov't)

Yeah, I would have no desire to actually own them. But the IDEA sounds good
