What are “Whoopsies”?
During production, sometimes 'Whoopsies!' happen. These mugs we still consider sellable and usable, but we’ve previously held them back from shipping for often very small and obscure reasons that most people wouldn’t notice. While all of our mugs are hand made and unique, some are a little more unique than others. We’ve had many people inquire about mugs that we’ve not had in-stock for awhile, so we thought this could be a good way to get some mugs that we no longer produce into the hands of those who really want them, and to make room on our shelves for new mugs that we’ve got in the works.
Each of these tiki mugs will have one or more of these, or other, small issues: glaze somewhere unintended, tiny black dots from particles in the kiln, glaze smudges, superficial cracks that don’t affect the integrity of the mug, variation in color or glaze texture, etc. As each mugs issues vary and are unique, they aren’t reflected in pictures here. Mugs are being sold in as-is condition. While we reserve the right to permanently mark mugs on bottom, out of sight, to indicate they're part of this group, this set will not be marked. Exchanges for alternate 'Whoopsie!' mugs will be allowed if buyer pays shipping costs. Mugs will not arrive cracked (excludes superficial ‘cracks’).
“Whoopsie” mugs are offered at discounted price.
These mugs are in-stock and ready to be packed and shipped.
Drunktapus by Tiki tOny
My little Drunktapus is finally in mug form! I drew this silly little fella about 8 years ago on some drink coasters I was selling at Don the Beachcombers!
Thursten Van Ripplebottom is a beachcomber Octopus who explores tropical lagoons collecting sunken treasures and decorating his cavern shack.
One day while Tiki tOny was beachcombing himself, he stumbled upon this cute little Drunktapus with a tiki mug in hand. Tony was as stunned as a puffer when this cute little fella raised his mug and eye brows and greeted with an, “Aloha Dude!” Tony nearly lost his marbles and did a double take as the Drunktapus began to talk. They became fast friends and shared beachcombing tall tales about relics that slipped away from their grubby lil tentacles!
Thursten Van Ripplebottom or better known as Drunktapus is here to remind you of the simple pleasures of beachcombing and discovering once sunken treasures! Enjoy life’s little treasures just like Drunktapus!
