Retired, I do everything!
Relatively new collector, but absolutely love the Tiki life. Just built a Tiki bar in my basement over COVID and it has been my "happy place" ever since.
The Unkle Fun Rumpus Room is an assortment of tikis and what not collected throughout the years since my first trip to Hawaii in 1974. The collection has just grown from then. One day, back in 2008, while my wife was vacationing in Belize I transformed a room, that no one really used into a space more fitting for entertaining. And to display my collection.

Currently living in Las Vegas. Ive been collecting all things Tiki for almost 20 years now. My collection has gone in many directions but currently I am only collecting artist made mugs and a few event mugs. I also collect swizzles and tiki ephemera current and vintage.
Tiki mugs are best used for drinking. They won't be worth anything to you when you're dead! Aloha, and Mahalo!

I was first introduced to tiki bars specifically on my first contract with Disney Cruise Line via Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto over in Florida and quickly fell in love with the art, history, atmosphere, and people. As a kid (and very much still now) I loved themed restaurants and the stories they told. It was incredibly captivating and hilariously the nostalgia I feel when I walk into a tiki bar is no doubt born out of my days visiting the rainforest cafe when it was still in operation in Vancouver.
Since my initial Introduction I have been an avid fan of this eclectic, adventurous, mysterious, and always jovial genre. I can’t wait to talk more with you all about the art, the history, the fun, and hopefully see friends at the events I come to.

My parents lived in Hawaii in the late '50s, when my dad was stationed in the army there. All the slideshows, photos and talks of Hawaii got my tiki juices flowing! I started my serious mug collecting about 10 years ago and have a home bar, The Hula Hideaway.
New to the world of Tiki but have always been in love with it. My ultimate dream is to have my own bar one day. Recently moved from Denver to Orlando and can't wait to explore!
Been loving tiki for almost 60 years, starting from our flotsam and net decorated basement when I was a kid, when my parents would bring home those itty bitty plastic monkeys and swizzles for us from a night on the town, to my first visit to the ETR as a kid in the early 70's, to our own "basement paradise" now: the Kukui Lagoon, which leads a double life as my art studio by day, our tiki lounge by night. I'm a full time artist, painting tropical, ocean, and aboriginal style art on reclaimed monkeypod bowls and wall art surfboards. Proud to say that my monkeypod bowls and hand-dyed silks were sold in the Mai Kai gift shop. My music, dance, and art all blend together in my projects, and if it sits still long enough, I'll paint it.
Got my first tiki mugs from Luau Hut in Maryland in the late 60s via my dad’s white upholstered home bar. Loved drinking chocolate milk in them as a kid.
Fast forward a few minutes…
I’m here for Moai, Ku, Lono, Kane, Kanaloa and true nods to Pacific life and legends. That includes totem images from Alaska to Mexico. Everything else is ceramic artists “borrowing” tiki popularity to monetize pop culture.
There. I said it. Fire away.

P.S. there sure are a lot of crap mugs on this site they have nothing to do with Tiki, that really disappoints me, Gumby and Pennywise are you fucking kidding me.
I like vintage and 'fun,' kitschy stuff.
