The local Home Depot I stopped by this morning had everything unpacked and on display. No Maori's or the planters.

Last night on the way home I repeated what I did the previous night: Two Home Depots on Slauson in Los Angeles and then the HD on Jefferson in Marina del Rey. I again struck out and ended up empty handed. And no one at any of them had a clue what I was asking about.

I'll try all three again today!

One of the Home Depots I stopped at did not have the items unpacked yet. Walk around in the outside garden area and look for palates with the name Tropical Plant Source on the box I believe it is. The bar box is marked Tili Diablo bar. One tiki is marked Big Daddy and the other has 48 inch Polynesian tiki on the box.

I checked a Kansas City location and got the usual confused look from employees. They let me know they didn't have them and told me it didn't make sense to be getting in garden supplies at this time of summer when they are trying to close out the garden center stuff. Don't they know I'm west of the damned Mississippi???????????????

The merchandise started to hit Riverside County (CA) stores yesterday. I was in the Murrieta store yesterday as employees were starting to unpack the pallets. I took the Big Daddy and the Marquesan tikis while they were still boxed. They did not have Maori tiki but stated a second wave of product would be hitting stores at the end of the month. The woman I spoke with might not have been a Home Depot employees since she stated she would be at the Perris store the following morning to set up their display.

The planters did hit the Murrieta location but they did not come with the plants so she stated that they were being returned. She did allow me to purchase them without plants. I went next door to the 99 cent store and purchased some plastic succulents that did the trick.
Hopefully they will get this situation resolved and might explain why other stores do not have them on display.

FYI: The planters are a little bit bigger than a good size tiki mug. They would make a great addition as bookends to a tiki mug collection.

Last night we went back to the Home Depot that said they wouldn't be getting them and they had two of everything! I bought the marq' I had been drooling over got it to the car and my wife said "I liked thumbs up guy too" (the Maori) so back in we went. Posted on Facebook and the next thing you know Robyn from Tacoma Cabana ran there and got all three of the Diablo tikis and more. Only one Ku left there but there is another Depot right off I-5 in Tacoma.

Enough, I can't take it anymore! Danny, please make more, and ship 'em to us East of the Mississippi. Make 'em look even more rad, and cooler, so that we can have our own turn making our tiki friends jealous over on the opposite side of the Mississippi!

This is killing me. I just finished up a great deck and patio build out, and I'm searching for this exact thing. Stuck in Chicago.
