I found these nice new mugs at Tommy Bahama around Christmas.... very well done, the detailed flowers on the dresses are hand painted, not screened. The sales lady told me they plan to issue a new design each year. At $16 each, they're a pretty good buy for the quality, and considering the store they came from!

Yes! Someone finally created a wahine mug with an attractive wahine! Those are really beautiful, and I'm surprised Tommy Bahama's is selling them for a relatively reasonable price.

I bought a few of these mugs at the Tommy Bahama's in Las Vegas back in Winter of 2002. They are a little different from the ones pictured so I take it, the sales lady was right about the new annual designs. I've never seen that blue one before.

Hey TraderPup,

Isn't that the brickwork around your pool area. I remember it well after a few of those kick-ass Trader Vic's Grogs you made us at your last gig...

I bought those two while on a trip to Denver last year.

One is called 'Kimono Lady' and dated 2002
The other is 'Tropical Nostalgia' and dated 2003

I visited a local Tommy Bahama just before Christmas, and there was no 2004 model released yet.

The TB store staff may not recognize them as mugs, you may have to ask for them as vases or something.

Just picked up one of these beautiful mugs from the Tommy Bahamas on the Country Club Plaza in K.C. Preferred the one on the left and passed on the more Asian looking one.

Lady V got me the yellow one on the right for xmas. We also had picked up a great Mojito 4 glass set for my dad. A good thick glass with a cigar band screened around the bottom with Mojito on it. He almost didn't get it for xmas.

Tikitanked:

Tommy Bahamas in LA is located at the Grove @ Farmer's Market - Third & Fairfax (although I wouldn't be suprised if more have popped up in Pasadena or SaMO).

If you haven't been to the Grove, I recommend it, particularly when the weather's warm as it has a very nice outdoor environment, with knock-off Bellagio fountains and S.F. trolleys. But dine in Farmer's Market, cost effective and equally charming.

Nice meeting you on Saturday.

So I contacted Tommy Bahama's and they said I should call one of their flagship stores, which I did and they haven't seen a 2004 mug/tumbler/or the like yet.

I have a conference at Santana Row next week and there is a Tommy Bahama's right near the hotel we will be at where I bought the previous two mugs. I will stop by and ask in person about a 2004 mug.

I will keep y'all posted...
