Visited the West Seattle store last night and it's tiki madness! Plan on heading back today to grab some before they disappear.

I'll be delivering a Maori to my brother in Camarillo today. If you're in the area and are looking to complete the Diablo Trifecta, I may be able to bring along an additional piece.
Twenty dollars will be added to help cover my Ventiki bar tab.
Pm me.

A preemptive apology for the possible double posting.

Diablo is being represented in southeast Cali (aka the desert tiki wasteland).


Actually there was only this one bar and one tiki along with a bunch of made in China stuff but that's still the most tiki this county has seen in 40 years

It definitely sucks that these are only available in the stores out west and not online for us easterners.

However, the tiki statues they were selling last summer were available this year online. I suspect that next summer, these will be available to everyone via home depot's website. Granted even online, they sell out fast.

I notice several of these popping up on ebay for more than double the retail price...so I think with a little patience (next season) these can be purchased by all.

As long as the demand continues, I don't see any reason they wouldn't get more and keep selling them.

I think you're right, and hope that Danny is working on expanding this. If this was a limited test run, it looks to me like it was very successful. My fear is that if Home Depot and Danny don't get to expand this, then someone else will come along and do it with cheesy tikis. Lowe's has been carrying a single short/stubby concrete tiki in their garden center for a few years now and it seems to have been selling well. If Lowe's is paying attention, they could also expand their offerings.

This Home Depot and Tiki Diablo collaboration is awesome!

I managed to get a couple of the other tiki's home depot offered last year by calling a store in the Houston, TX area and getting them to ship them to me. But shipping wasn't cheap...and this year the same ones on there website were with free shipping. So...I could have saved 30% by waiting.

I did see some tiki stuff at Lowe's here this year. It was terrible...it made party city tiki look good.

I am curious though...for those that have the collection in their stores about the bar stools in this photo:



How's the quality? Are they fake or real bamboo? I could definitely use a few stools around my bar.

Does anyone know what the deal is with the smaller succulents on the Tiki Diablo planters? I just picked up two of them and one of the smaller succulents "broke" off. It looks like it was glued in with some sort of green glue or something to the planter.

Just wondering if I can re-attach it somehow. It's an air plant right?

Mine did not come with any plants which is fine since I have trouble keeping plants alive anyway. Here is a picture with the plastic succulents I picked up at the 99 cent store next to the Home Depot. I used some Shoe-goo I had to attach them on the bottom. On the top I was able to reuse the styrofoam that came with the plastic plant.

Cheers

It's killing me that I haven't been able to find the planters around here. Would anyone be willing to pick up a couple and ship them to me? I could make it worth your while.

Ok for looks.
But no good for fat tiki peeps.
Would hate to see one of those cute kiddies that someone brings to your next
party go crashing to the ground after plopping their sticky little fingers down on one of those stools.
Just sayn.

I wouldn't feel right buying tiki stuff at the Home Depot that is literally down the street from OCEANIC ARTS! ;P

Today at the Santa Maria Home Depot we spotted this cool illustration hanging above the Tiki Diablo/Daniel Gallardo tiki display. The bottom tiki image I'm guessing is Daniel Gallardo? Haven't seen this at any other Home Depot.
