Tiki mug producer and purveyor Tiki Farm is moving out of their San Clemente digs so this week they’re having a warehouse sale to help lighten the load. (This also happens to coincide with Tiki Oasis in nearby San Diego.)
They set up a few tables out front with all the mugs, scorpion bowls and shot glasses labeled with numbers, and handed out ordering forms for buyers to specify which ones they wanted and how many. This strategy kept things running in an orderly and polite fashion.
It was billed as the biggest sale ever in company history, so I’d honestly expected a bit more. There were definitely some good finds though. Many of their currently offered items were discounted, and I was excited to find some sold-out promotional mugs (like Fender’s Marcus Carcass, $15) and locale specific ones such as The Beachcomber Cafe‘s scorpion bowl ($20) and Big Kahuna mug ($10) which have been out of stock the last couple times I’ve visited the restaurant. Bigger spenders could nab the Vitua’s Vessel mug & Hot Wheels set by Shag for $150 or a United Airlines female menehune reproduction for $175.
A couple items were also making their debut for this event, including “The Happy Cannibals” mug and these cute little “Oi’ Pona” bottle toppers ($5) and salt and pepper shakers ($10). Mr. Baseball said the Marquesan tikis looked like Magneto… (He does have a point.)
Also available were SoCal Tiki dvds ($5), a few different styles of Tiki Farm t-shirts (above, $10), the new Tiki Farm quarterly magazine ($5), posters (see second photo) and a couple racks of sarongs and aloha shirts (below).
They’re also sweetening the deal with free Samoan War Club swizzle sticks with any purchase, plus a free Hot Lava Java volcano sugar and creamer set for folks spending more than $75. The sale continues today until 3 p.m., Sunday 11 a.m.-3 p.m. and Monday 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
