Okay Tikiphiles, how about a single forum to discuss all things Tiki mug? Regale all with tales of the great search for Tiki drink vessels...entertain us about a stupendous find or bargain was had, saving a lost mug from oblivion, liberating another memento to the safe environs of your collection.

Ask questions, provide answers, critique the newer mugs or just comment on favorite mugs and Tiki collectibles.

Incraese your mana and help spread the Tiki mojo.

Ok, what a great idea for a topic! Hee hee!!

I will get the ball rolling with an initial vote for best mug ever: Tiki Bob.

And here's a glimpse of what some items can attract. This has to be the highest ever bid, save a "Elvis Blue Hawaii" Tiki Bob?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1088492916&r=0&t=0&showTutorial=0&ed=1017977772&indexURL=0&rd=1

I am hoping Mike allows me to make a pilgrimage down South and pay homage to the "Mystery Bowl"!

How about it guys? Do we want a forum for this? Will it make Tiki Central easier to read? Or harder?

If we get enough people who say "yeah!" we can add a Mug forum no problem!

Please note that a FORUM is higher than a TOPIC (it is actually a collection of topics), and would seperate all tiki mug topics out from the "Tiki Central Message Board" forum.

Post your opinion here!

Whoops, I had no idea my use of "forum" had logistical ramifications. I was hoping to have one general topic for "mugs or collectibles". So, I vote for one central repository for mug/collectible talk...whether that is a forum or topic, I am not sure.

I say leave as topic. My interest is to see a more centralized discussion thread for this aspect of Tikidom.

Whatever leads to minimizing fragmentation and clutter.

Well, tikimug.com is sorta set up to be that.
Seems to be a shame not to do it over there. But I definately think someone has to do a guide to repro mugs, in light of the bad tendancy of people on ebay to sell repros with a minimum of info, resulting in high prices on cheap mugs.

A separate forum is a good idea, IMO.

A general "Hunting and Gathering" forum would be good. I like reading about Centralites Tiki finds, whether mugs or masks or miscellaneous. A section for show-and-tell might encourage posts which may seem frivolous floating alone in the general forum.

I gotta tell ya I love my mugs but, I am definitely in favor of a more general "Hunting and Gathering" expanding it beyond just the mug thang.

On a side note, does anyone know what that volcano looking thing is, that's sitting in front the kid in the eBay picture? And boy does she look happy drinking out that tiki bowl or what?

The kid with Gypsy Rose Lee? I hope that's her kid! I think it is just a table lamp or two. A nice version of a Kahiki table lamp sold on ebay a few weeks ago for $200+.

I dig on the "hunter, gatherer" topic. I think it would be a great idea.

I'm responding in the affirmative for a "hunting gathering" forum! It'd be especially nice to have a place to post (my) stupid mug questions and get some knowledgeable answers from you folks...There's nothing worse than paying too much for a cheap mug.

Maybe a trading sub-thread? That'd be cool!

How's this for a "hunting &ngathering" anecdote?

BTW, I like that idea...not soley mugs, but a catch-all discussion for collecting Tiki. Further, maybe we can start some real trading exchanges...to offset the HIGH prices of the little collectibles these days.

Ok, the anecdote. I just chatted with someone via email who purchased 3 different Steve Crane pieces at a small store. The headhunter and warrior god mugs, and bird of paradise bowl. Total price, $16.

Of course these type of things NEVER happen to me!

I think a seperate area for discussing tiki mug hunting including anything else tiki would be a great idea. Many people seem to hunting for vintage stuff, especially mugs, and this would consolidate messages and info for everyone to browse and respond to.
....and a BIG THANKS to Hanford for setting up this message board on his site- it looks great!!

Tiki mug question, part 2?

I tried to post this, not sure if it worked earlier:

Hawaiian Inn "paddle sucker"..I have 2 little guys with a "knife?" in one hand and tongue sticking out. I have also seen a version with a fuller belly and sticking the "knife" in its mouth.

Which is what? paddle licker or sucker? What are those litle guys, birds? Does it matter?

Still a fave mug of mine...hee hee!

I have to agree with TikiGardner that I think that was the purpose of the tikimug chat.

Now I have to say that the Kahiki bowl thing was a bit much. Tell Mike or Yoho- or whatever his name is, he is just plain off his rocker. Geeze-Louise man, what do you people do for a freakin livin'?!
(Obviously this guy does not have a wife who feels the need to critic,analyze and inspect every mug purchased...uh, not that mine does that...no...)
If I won the big 7 state lotto tonight, I would not have the kahunas to spend $800 on a Kahiki Bowl. Hope he insured it - hell for that kinda money, I'd just drive or fly up and get it myself.

Here's to Big Kahunas!
