Tiki Mugs & More

IMG_1862

Today I decided to head out to the Antique Trove in Roseville to see if they had any Tiki mugs I could purchase. I headed there with high hopes and cash in hand. Now that the main part of the Tiki room is done, all I need are accessories. I am just getting into collecting Tiki mugs so it will take time to amass a vast collection.

My goal is to not have any mugs be the same. I want all different kinds.

I am going to try and collect mostly vintage Tiki mugs. That isn’t to say that I wont buy newer ones, due to the fact they are making a lot of really cool ones.

I found this great planter at Maholo Tiki.

I was driving down Sunrise Blvd. about a week ago when I glanced over at the store fronts I had driven by many of times, and there I saw something that got my attention….I saw a store called Maholo Tiki (3667 Recycle Road #10 Rancho Cordova, CA 95742)! I made it a point to make a mental note to come and check it out, and today was the day. I walked in and was greeted by Mary, one of the owners, and she was very pleasant to talk to. I was soo excited that we have something soo cool in our own backyard. If you get a chance to check them out, I am sure you will not be disappointed. I will make many happy returns to Maholo Tiki. Also, make sure you check out their Ebay store in case you are not local to take part in all the great items they sell. Here are some shots I took of the store to give you an idea of what they carry.
