A friend of mine bought me a couple of tall tiki shot glasses from Urban Outfitters. They say CHIKI TIKI on the bottom and are pretty cool looking:



I'd never been to an Urban Outfitters so I decided to check out their website to see what else they might have. (I did a search and see that they've been mentioned here for repro tiki mugs several times). It seems that they have the U Bastard mugs that Munktiki imports for sale (online sale only) for $4.99 each. Not my favorite mug but for $5 it's pretty tempting. I thought some of you might want to take advantage of the sale...
U Bastards.

Here's my Chiki Tiki collection. I picked these up in a souvenir store while vacationing in Sunset Beach, NC last summer.

Thanx for the hot tip on the U Bastards. At $6.50 each (shipping included), we bought 2 of each color. The funny thing is they have the smaller version listed on sale at$9.99 each. Wonder if someone goofed?
Anyway we will be breaking these out at some BambooLodge backyard Luau's this summer.

Thanx Again,
D&C

Ok, all I can say is WOW!!! I know the description said 9.5 ", but after parting the sea of packing peanuts, I was amazed at how HUGE they were! I know, not traditional Tiki, but a bargain at $5 each. Thanks for the heads up! But you're right, seems kinda funny the smaller Bastardo is twice as much.

You're welcome! Now could somebody tell me why my $175 digital camera can't take a *%@#%$! decent &^*#@$!ng picture? Look at my pic and then look at Juno's. How much do you have to spend on a digital camera to get a decent pic? (Mine's a JVC GC-A55 1.3 megapixels)

I'd like to find some of those larger Chiki Tiki mugs. The one that's sort of blue and brown/gray/green has a really cool glaze.

That's the sort of tip that should have everyone reaching into their wallets. I can see a fair-few Tiki Centralite bars using these fine mugs as day-to-day cocktail-bearers.

Shame they don't ship outside of North America....

Ha! I wish, but there's little available from the UK that would interest any collector under the age of 120! ( Anyone who wants stuff from the UK, get in touch anyway as I'll do my best to help you out. No charge, of course)

Now that's not true. I think that 90% of all the Trechtikoff prints ever made now reside in the UK. At least it seems that way on ebay. I'd love to get my hands on (a) Madam Wong!

I never did buy any of those U Bastards. I started to but Urban Outfitters S/H policy sucks if you only want two of them like I do ($8.50 S/H up to $75 worth of merchandise). That's probably fair S/H but still it puts the cost up over $9 each and I'd rather go to Hilo Hatties and put that money into some Tiki Farm mugs. Which I did.

Kono,
Thanks for the "heads up" on this super deal. I just sent one of each "U Bastard" to my best friend. Hope he doesn't take it the wrong way. Ha!

I too recieved my mugs.... only to find that the shotty wrapping and clumbsy hands of a govt worker killed both of them. When I sober up in the morning I'm calling them and tell them how it should be shipped. And if recieve more broken ones, I'll tell them where they can ship it next.

oh Lone Star beer, you make me 10ft tall and bullet proof
