....aaand still waiting for these to hit Fresno. Finally over the weekend one of the HD's had a sign put up saying 'Coming in July...TIki totems, etc.' and I left my phone number for them to call when they came in, but the kid looked young, and wrote my number on a napkin so I'm not too sure that will happen. I will keep stalking the place until they show up..



Bakersfield stores are saying the 15th.




THank you. they wouldn't even give me a date here just offered to take my number. I'll probably hit all 4 stores tomorrow to see if they have appeared yet.

Confirmed sighting at the South San Jose - Blossom Hill store! There were 6 California Ku Tikis (now only 5!), and a couple of the Marquesan-style. No Maoris. They were just setting-up the display this afternoon.

So add that to the war-room pin-board!

Would somebody post pics of the Home Depot labels showing items #'s, etc? I'm going to figure out a way to get some on this side of the Mississippi....or at least try really hard. Heh.



I hope this works, but here is the tag from my 48" "Big Daddy" Tiki Diablo

Let me know if the Laguna Niguel store has them please. My first Tiki was carved out in the nursery when that was a Home Base . That project got me into Tiki .


Danny, the Home Depot has started stocking your awesome work! I took a few pics. Only one 4' totem out right now- a Marquesan that had an unfortunate chip on it's lower half. But plenty of planters and two bars set up with a pallet full of other sets.

A snap shot of the various planters.


I took home this Marquesan planter and a Maori one


One of the bars


The Marquesan totem with some damage on his left pectoral area


A stockpile of non-Tiki Diablo tikis


So happy to have some of these at home now. Hope all the HD stores that don't have their out yet them ASAP.
CHEERS!

I just learned at least one of the stores in Bakersfield will have them out today. I'll find out after work.

For you Bay Area/Nor cal folks, Home Depot in Rohnert Park has the full display up including the large Maori. Good selection to choose from

Last night, the Home Depot store in Newbury Park, CA (Ventura County) had four 4' Marquesan tikis only, plus
3-4 tiki bars and plenty of the smaller items. I took home one of the Marquesans. Didn't get the impression that these
were flying off the shelves exactly, but the nursery department guys I talked to said all the "Hawaiian" stuff was very seasonal
and they didn't expect any more shipments. Danny, these are beautiful pieces - great job!



And the Marquesan tiki tag...




Best of luck to all ohana to get some of these great Tiki Diablo pieces!

Aloha!

They had the full array of designs today at the Fresno store (I guess it's technically the Clovis store - on Shaw/Willow), but the 'Big Daddy's seemed kind of banged up. The Marq and the Maori were the ones I was hoping to score anyway, so I was glad they actually had them and were in good shape.

Everything, including the Maori, was available in Bakersfield at the Gosford Rd. store yesterday afternoon. The Rosedale store should have them today as well.

Yup. I can't help speculating on a little glimpse ahead into the future here on Tiki Central. We can look forward to many future thread(s) and posts on maintenance and restoration of the Tiki Diablo Home Depot tikis. (Is that how they will be referred to in the future?) Then, also, there will likely be threads on "found one in a garage sale," "found one in a barn in Kansas," "spotted one in the wild at my dentist's office," etc. etc. etc.

This is great stuff!

Glad to eventually see it all out there... Here in Central Texas it was a No Go on the planters as well Maori and PacNW tall pieces.

People are excited to find something more than the typical neon colored Party City style 'tiki' crapola we've been subjected to for years. If that 'future' you describe comes to pass, you're already ahead of the game. You can start typing up sarcastic and bitter replies now and have them on standby.
