Dimethios! We would LOVE! Of course we may, also, strike your findings to the ground and curse them as being "Not Worthy" or "Unauthentic" (speaking for the entire room now) but we'd rather hear about it than not! Some, as a matter of fact, would probably rather post what they know about how HORRIBLE some of it is than go without knowing about it to begin with.

I was given a pack of Cocktail Napkins last summer that came from Target and has Hula Girls on it. By the time I got over to Target to see if they had more they had already warehoused all of the Summer stuff. These things are BEAUTIFUL! They make Shag Napkins look like Ridiculously Overpriced Pieces of Toilet Paper! I have also purchased much glassware from Target and Plastic Cocktail Animals, as well. Target is, while perhaps not Tiki-Centric, a very "Cocktail Culture" Aware retail chain.

Well, Target's motto for it's employes is "fast, fun and friendly" I dunno about fast but what's more fun and friendly than drinking an exotic drink out of a tiki!

Look in the Target flyer in Sunday/ todays paper. The middle page, under the flap, bottom right hand corner, black model with bikini. We were there when they were filming it. Can anyone tell me where we were?? Look close. It's kinda blurry.

(maybe some photo pros can post a pic of it)

Let's see....treeless mountains in the background...dark brown two story hotel building with walkways in front of rooms...palm trees...bamboo surrounding pool...possible tiki in background...really it looks familiar to me so I'm going with my first instinct here.

Caliente Tropics. Final answer.

Attention Traitor Vic and anyone else interested. You mentioned wanting hula girl napkins from Target. Well they are back. Hurry!! They are on an endcap in section C37 (should be the same or close in any Target) (Blue world) I just set the entire end cap 2 days ago. There are also Hula girl and Hula guy figures, palm tree swizle sticks and other various hawaiian themed items there. This is a new batch, added to the current Hawaiian theme. Other items of interest... a Tiki air freshener for the car (look in automotive isle and endcap) a dancing hula girl air freshner (bottom half swings back and forth) also surfboards, Hawaiian shirts and palm tree fresheners. Unfortunatly my Target is out of stock of the Tiki ones so I have no idea what they look like. Today was my last day there so, I will have to check back to see if they come in. I still have friends keeping an eye out for anything Tiki/Hawaiian etc.. so I can still inform everyone of stuff. They are starting to put some pineapple and various palm tree items on clearance. Check the endcaps in domestics. OH OH I almost forgot!! I found a TIKI JOE'S T-shirt for my son. There are none in adult sizes sorry! I was bummed about that. I will post a pic of it in my next post if I can figure it out! On another note. I was at an A.J. Wrights recently (which is owned by Marshall's and TJ Maxx) looking for Tiki stuff and found a TIKI windchime. Nothing worth buying. No sign of Tiki anywhere on it. It's just a green wooden windchime. But they had some nice Hawaiian shirts in 1x-5x. Just thought I would pass that along.

Excellent Target shopping tips. There is one right by me, so I will have to check it out.

Just curious -- if it didn't have any sign of tiki anywhere on it and it was just a green wooden windchime, why do you call it a TIKI windchime?

The box says, "Tiki wind chime" on it. After further inspection on my part, I determined it wasn't Tiki at all. Sorry I wasn't clear on that before.
