We are in the process of duplicating our hand carved tikis in a resin similar to Target's but more detailed carvings. In addition we are adding solar lights to some, and have natural wood looking and painted versions. They look so real it is hard to tell they are not wood. Does anyone have ideas for marketing these?...we're the small guys not Target! We currently have a website in the works, are booking shows (with hand carved and synthetic), and will use ebay. I was just wondering what the market would be for the synthetic ones. Target is $40-50, ours would be $60-$90 retail. Thanks!

Here's photos of all the tiki I found at my local Target.



The one on the right is indeed a cousin of the 2005 Spencer's Gifts tiki, but in black instead of brown.

I liked the black Target Tiki and have him outside. Initially he had a green spotlight illuminating him but it went kaput so I just tried red earlier tonight. Here he is with the new color, then I worked a little photoshop magic on him. Now he's the mystical Ask-The-Red-Tiki-A-Question Guru.

Speaking of ebay scams, here's another:
TARGET="_blank">http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7760996191&ssPageName=MERCOSI_VI_ROSI_PR4_PCN_BIX

You can buy these at big lots for $29.99.

There's a special place in "H-E-Double Hockeysticks" for tiki scammers. Grrrrrrrr!!!!!

Here's original red version of Target Tiki that I shot (you don't have to turn on the red liiiiiiight...but i did):



And then when he was green, outside in action. Target tiki looks ok in store, but better when in his tiki environment:

Finally saw all this stuff today. I was like a kid in a candy store! The gazebo looks REALLY nice, although the bamboo is prone to cracking, according to the garden shop guy at the store. I think I'm going to wait till they clearance them, and see if I can get it for cheaper. The bar is also quite cool, and is currently on sale for $199.00.

I thought the resin tikis were great! Unfortunately the price has gone up, and they are now $49.99 for the two tone brown ones and the taller black one. I think I'll see if they clearance those out too at the end of summer, as it's more than I can justify right now. Plus I need to move, and don't have a place to put them.

I can't wait to have my own place where I can set up a tiki bar, rather than keeping the majority of my collection in my cubicle at work.

Chris

bamboo boyd, I don't see how the ebay post u mentioned is a scam. The seller asks a high buy it now price, but if someone is willing to pay it then fine. I don't see her selling it with a BS story like the other listing that claimed the target tiki to be from an old tiki establishment. I can't get that tiki from my biglots, they didn't get the big one, so if I was willing to pay that much for a resin tiki....

Exoticat, Great pictures of your targettiki, I only found the brown one here so I purchased it. Do u mind if I do a pastelle of your red lite tiki photo??

Good point Sneaky. I just presumed that they were available at all of the big lots after talking to some friends in CA. My Bad.
