My interest in collecting tiki mugs began when I decided to convert the bar on my boat into a tiki bar. Not very practical, but I had no basement in my house, so I made do with my boat. I did manage to secure the mugs so they could withstand most any kind of pounding the boat might take. My collection soon expanded well beyond the capacity of my little Floating Tiki Bar. Sadly, my space dilemma was solved when my boat sank. I was able to save most of my mugs of value, and I used the unfortunate incident as an excuse to reclaim the family room from my kids and install a good sized tiki bar. My mugs are much happier with this new arrangement.
I collect all kinds of mugs, but have a weakness for vintage mugs from the famous old tiki palaces.
