I picked up two of these in Lubbock For $5 each. Yes, five bucks each. The draw back was that they have a fixable hole in the side and behind the heads. Any ideas on how to fix them that would be weather proof? I also plan on painting them to have more of a weathered wood look, instead of the rail-road tie tar color.

2 part epoxy putty (available at hardware store) would work well if the holes are not too big or Bondo (car repair stuff) though that stuff smells pretty heinous. Either way you may need to glue some mesh into the hole for support.

Target is Tikiless!!!

My local Target in Maryland has moved out all the summer outdoor stock . No, more Tiki statues, bars
or pavilions, Can anyone guess what direction they might go in next Spring @ Target for a possible Tiki encore???

Great Mohallo!

One last question though, how would I get the new mesh in with out busting a hole in the bottom?

I picked up the last resin tiki at the local Target for $8. Add a $4 can of plasti-kote stone spray paint (fiesta red) and this is what you get:

It still needs to be sealed, but for $12 I'm pretty happy with the results! I may try a natural stone color on the cheesy blue plastic flaming tiki I picked up at Big Lots and see how it turns out.

When I went back to my Target to see if the tikis were marked down, I saw a single moai in the bunch. The clerk couldn't tell me the price. It's textured resin and is gray.
I'm dying for my Target to mark them down! They are still full price.

If the hole is about an inch or so, the epoxy putty should be fine without the extra support. Just flatten out a fairly thin sheet of the putty & after pressing onto the surface, you can smooth down the edges with water. There are all kinds of putties though, so consistancy will vary. A quick set type will dry pretty hard & can be sanded down to shape.

If you need the mesh use a piece of window screen that will form back into shape easily & is somewhat stiff. Cut out your sized piece & tie a string through the center. Poke the piece through the hole & after spreading glue onto the inside walls of the hole, pull the string to bring the mesh flush with the inside wall. Use a good fast set glue & cut away the string when dry. All this may be too much work to put into a $5 dollar investment though!

Thanks Caffinated!

You know I don't know why I didn't think of the string on the screen idea before. That will save me alot oftime i nthe future on other projects. Mohallo!

I had my eye on the big 5' bamboo fountain at Target, but it wasn't getting marked down even though all the other summer stuff was. I kept going back to check on them (a pain since the closest Target is in the next state) and all of a sudden half of them (the unopened ones in boxes) were gone! I asked an employee (definitely NOT a manager) if he could tell me when it might get marked down and he scanned it and said he couldn't tell and that it might be awhile. Then he asked me if I was interested in buying one and I said "Yes," and he said, "well I can take 30 % off if you'd like it." !!

So I packed one in my cart and then realized that it would have to go in the back of my truck and would get all chipped and banged up. Then he said there were a bunch that were in boxes out back and I could have one of them instead of the floor model. SOOOOO...... what I learned is that #1. employees must be authorized to give a discount and #2. they may have what you're looking for packed away somewhere "out back."

The semi-hollow 36" tikis they had for sale at the
Target in Long Beach looked something like this







There is another version in lava black. Both are $10.00, down from $approx $50.

At the Target in LA on LaCienega & Rodeo, there are approx 6 left.

It is down the street from Uncle Moki's Hawaiian shrimp.

The owner used to be a part-owner of Giovanni's on the North Shore.

Most importantly, drop me a line if you go as I live only blocks away, so you can come on over.

New stuff at Target! I was there today checking out the garden section and there they were, new tikis for 07. One style is solar powered. Looks like the eyes light up. They have one called "long hair tiki". Can you guess which style he is? And some tea light style as well.

I am sorry I can't get the pic out of the phone yet. Anyone need to go shopping this week and take pics of plastic Chinese tikis?

Saw those at my Target here in Trinity. Didn't someone here come up with the solar powered tiki idea?
