So, as promised, I stopped by Tommy Bahama's on Santana Row and inquired about the 2004 tiki mug.

The woman behind the counter said she just got back from a corporate meeting where they showed off the new mug and she went so far to speculate that it should be available within the next two months.

Did you all notice this auction that just completed yesterday for a set of the 2 Tommy Bahama mugs?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3272792337&category=35713

I thought these were very nice and wanted to get a set but was feeling too lazy to brave Michigan Ave in downtown Chicago to go to the Tommy Bahama store. So I thought about bidding on this auction thinking $30 to $35 would win it. Wow, was I wrong! Am I missing something? I know that people often bid more than something is worth on ebay, and sometimes bid a lot more, but this is wild. Man, dan must really love tikis or anything tiki like. As soon as I saw what the auction ended at, I called the TB store in Chicago and ordered 2 of each. I don't intend to go looking for suckers on ebay with them. I just wanted to make sure I could get a couple of each of them before they really do become scarce.

When I bought by mugs, they did not come with the boxes - the clerk just wrapped them in lots of tissue/wrapping paper.

Maybe it is the boxes that are collectible - perhaps adding $30 or so to the total price? More likely is that danlovestiki just didn't live near any Tommy Bahama store.

I wonder if many of the other vintage mugs ever came with their own decorated box.

I think that the Hawaii Kai in New York sold their mugs in a box with a picture on the front.
Aloha,

Their website isn't very helpful. Anybody have a picture of the '04 mug yet?

Here are some more pictures of the Tommy Bahama 2004 mug -- this one is so beautiful, with a fantastic 3-D bas-relief effect, and even the painted clouds look neat.









I'm not sure of how limited these are .... the store near me still has the 2002 and 2003 model available.

The Tommy Bahama mugs were priced at $16 each. This was at the Tommy Bahama store in the Tysons II mall in Northern Virginia.

TB is spicing up the title with the name "Vacation Vixen," reducing by 50% the amount of clothing, placing one hand in the hair and placing her in a "come hither" pose.

Suffice it to say, it is my favorite so far.

(I wonder if the title "Vacation Vixen" is another Thailand reference.)

Just returned from Palm Desert and the TB store on El Paseo has all three years 2002, 2003, 2004 in stock. By looking at the ebay auction above, I should have bought a BUNCH!

$16.00 and very clean looking. Most all I saw had boxes too...
