YAY ~ i got 6 one buck tikis!

good tip about having stuff individually wrapped, my tikis are ok, but the ONE thing they did wrap (a frame) cracked. oh gosh, now i'll have to go and return it, and maybe find the last few tikis.

For those who haven't ventured out yet - be sure to check out the frame aisle - they've got a bunch of 5X7 frames made from various types of woven/tropical materials and they look great! Perfect size for framing beloved postcards in your bar!

Hey I wonder how long it will be till some of these little guys make it onto e-bay, minus the dollar tree tag of course, as "Vintage Tiki Figurines/Statues"
Bidding starts at 10 buck!
I give it about 2 months.....
lol

Thanks so much for the tip about these tikis!!! I bought 5 of them the other day, and I noticed they also had some soaps that had hibiscus flowers and pineapples printed right on them, plus silverware with palm trees on the handles. I was also surprised to hear the tikis are "flying off the shelves" at other people's dollar tree stores, b/c at mine they are definately not selling. The cashier looked at me like I was crazy when I bought them.

Got some of these little guys. Thinking about making a 3-D tiki bar sign with them.

Ya know I was only half joking, I really got to say that its really sad that they are already on e-bay, I mean damn.....
Maybe I aught to put a link from the main page to this thread, so that all the other folks are aware of it...
oh well maybe not, I think most tc'ers would gladly hook someone up with these guys if they could.
Damn
5.99
I'm going to have to watch those auctions to see how they go.

$5.99 is a little steep...but keep in mind there are people that don't have a Dollar Tree anywhere near them and would gladly pay a few extra $$$ to get one of these. I bet most people on the west coast only paid a couple of bucks for their OMC Mr. Bali Hai...I'm embarrased to say what I paid for mine.

True enough,
One would think that WC folks would ask others on the east coast or midwest if they could get them from another tcer, I mean how much is shipping on them, you could have the whole set for no more than 12 or 13 bucks if they asked...

yeah, THANKS rustbeltcat! i just got all 8 (there aren't any more are there?).

believe it or not, i was actually in a dollar tree months ago for whatever reason & took a walk through in search of tiki. didn't find anything & figured that was that.

btw, if there's anyone out there w/out dollar trees in your area, i'm willing to purchase the set for you, if you reimbuse me + $5 (maybe more for overseas) for postage. however, i can't promise that when i go back all 8 will be there, but there seemed to be plenty this morning.

aloha,
tiki chris

I'm ashamed to say that I'm getting on the Dollar Tree/Ebay bandwagon. I'd usually turn my nose up at such crass opportunism, but I'm just so broke right now. Here's my promise, though: If I don't sell them for my minimum bid, I'll make them available to a less fortunate Tiki Centralite at cost plus shipping. Fair enough?

Here's the auction, not so you can buy them at my ridiculously inflated price, but because I thought my description was slightly humorous:

I was afraid that Juno might have snatched up all the $1.00 tikis in North Texas, judging by the picture. But I got my set of 8, too. They look damn awesome for only a buck apiece. Best tiki value of the year, in my humble opinion.

Three cheers for rustbeltcat!! This was a great post. I would have never looked at a Dollar Tree for tiki. Quite a bang for your buck. I got the set and then a set and then a set... Lots of ideas floating around in my head on what to do with these guys. If someone has other ideas or projects for these tikis, post them for all to see.
