Ben,
If you are looking for ANY Trader Dick's mug, I'm sure I can dig one out for you - no trade necessary. These are VERY common mugs and not hard to find at all. I'd hate to see you give up a Shag set to get one.

Wow, thanks for posting those! The date is exactly what I would've guessed.

They make me nostalgic, as the very earliest memories of the world I have are from the late 60's. So psychedelic, my GAWD--PINK tiki mugs?!?

Never did I dare to dream that my obsessions with vintage pink items and TIKI would ever intersect.

I'm really sorry I missed them. I would've had to go for it...

confirmed night owl,

Lisa

REV,
I live 10 miles from Trader Dicks, if you want I can get you a nice collection of mugs(I have some older mugs to send to you too), a menu, and anything else I can score for you. I can even send you some photos of the place if you would like. Just send me an email letting me know what you'd like to do. Later Days

Shameless auction plug (part deux)!

You've seen Sabu's...

You've seen BigBadTikiDaddy's...

Now here's MY foray into the (hopefully) exciting and lucrative world of selling:

TRADER VIC'S VOODOO TUMBLERS!!
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2166551114&ssPageName=ADME:B:LC:US:1

I would like to shamelessly point out that, unlike the two above (and highly successful - congrats, guys!!) auctions, this auction is for a LIGHT BLUE tumbler. I'd also like to shamelessly point out that this tumbler is UNUSED, and still has its original Imperial Glass labels intact!

(and, as always, free insurance for TC'ers!)

Midnight - sorry, no 'buy it now', but if its any consolation (and I know it's not), it is a 'no reserve' auction...

What is going on, did some truck full of "TV's Voodoo Grog" glasses lose a box or two on the freeway? And the bids they attract...aye yea yea, to the moon, Alice!

Well, these Hoity Toity types may have those glasses, but wait until you see the next midnite Tiki Mug charity auction. We got some stellar crap, er, items. Why I just finished the pics on a very VERY Rare lot to be offered:

2 Trader Dick's peanut guy mugs, the hard to find Chinese versions!

Please note, I WILL NOT be entertaining any "end it now for $XXX" type offers on this particular lot either. Pre-sale estimates value this lot at a minimum of eight, perhaps NINE, dollars. American.

Take that...

and we're off and running. Doubt I'll end up winning it in my price range, but it's worth a shot.

I've got some #1 Kahiki mugs to trade . Seems to be all I can get around here for obvious reasons.

I may have some Kahiki Skull mugs also if I can score a few more.

Ah, my dear Midnight - it seems your estimates for the final value of my Starboard and Port light glasses were (unfortunately for me) a tad on the high side... But, for my first attempt at selling tiki items (as opposed to trading), it didn't come out too bad!

However, as they say in the e-biz: "If at first you don't succeed, re-list, re-list again..."

Here's another pair!

STARBOARD

Ahh, but my initial prognostication put the ending value at $130. Pretty close I say. I amended my thoughts to the too-high level because the glasses took off so quickly. Perhaps that stalled things...the vagaries of auctions.

I still think they should have gone for more. Your listing alone is worth a few dollars. Marketing counts and the listing for the glasses is top-notch. People just don't appreciate genius until it's too late.

Good luck with the new ones,
midnite

Maybe it's that they aren't as tikiesque as the voodoo mug? I love them, I grew up by a lake so the boating theme gives them extra value to me. I just can't afford them. Sniff...

Maybe that's it, you need to bait the naval and sea-faring collectors like the sellers who put SHAG in the auction title even though the item has nothing to do with him. My Shag search has about twenty words to exclude now.

Yes, that is a good point. I have several Tiki pals that collect only "Tiki" mugs, nothing hula or the like. As with any collection, one has to decide what is their aim, 'cause it is impossible to get everything. Although, I have several customers that certainly try to get it all...and several copies at that.

The gentleman I sold my Voodoo Tumbler to is a comprehensive Trader Vic's collector. He told me that there are three versions of the Port/Starboard Light Tumblers - A nice ceramic version, an ugly ceramic version, and the glass versions. I think he told me he owns over 5,000 tiki mugs, yet he had never heard of Tiki Central. I'm going to try to get him to join us - he'd have a lot of input on this Collecting board I'm sure.

I actually have 2 different versions of the glass Port Light, both made by Imperial: a deep, ruby red, with very sharply defined features (ribs, bands, etc.), and a brighter, cherry red with more rounded, smooth features. My Starboard Lights are all the same, however. Go figure...

I also noticed that the Voodoo Tumblers Sabu and I have (they came from the same estate) have very deep and crisp raised relief masks, while the one pictured in the BOT (p. 93) looks 'melted' and almost flat by comparison. Do glass molds lose their definition over time as ceramic mug molds do?

(BTW - the winner of my first auction? Not a TikiCentralite...)
