Hey...if we ever have a Dallas Tikiphiles meet I might just bring one for everyone who shows up. Now THAT's an incentive!

Thanks for the heads up on this one, Rustbeltcat. I never knew that Dollar Tree existed, let alone that there were three within a thirty mile radius of my house. Unfortunately, only one store in my area had them, and I only got 6 out of the 8. Hence, my tiki quest continues. It'll be a good excuse to pop over to Palm Springs this weekend.

So I was back in Dollar Tree YET AGAIN to even out my collection(s) when I dropped one of these guys and broke his head off. These definitely need to be handled with CARE.

I returned to my local Dollar Tree store, and found a few more exotic themed accesories (sconces, candle holders, picture frames) that will help me in displaying my tiki items - perhaps these items might help some of you too.

1) Sconces - $1 These are probably meant to hold candles, but this was just what I was looking for to display my Squid tiki mug from the first Hukilau on the wall. Although constructed of plastic, it does have a nice rattan look. I will have to do further taping/securing to make sure nothing falls and breaks





They also had some plastic sconces which had a variety of palm tree patterns on them. I used these to display my Dollar store tikis.





And finally, they had some candle holders, which were just what I needed to raise some tiki mugs a few inches for display purposes. These had the rattan look to them also.


I'm starting to feel like a Dollar Tree Tiki Martha Stewart!!

Vern

I found two of them here in Bakersfield yesterday. I asked if they had more anywhere, and was told all the tropical items are their promotion for April. She said they will be getting more in.
Hopefully, Dollar Tree will see the huge demand and really stock up on them. I'll take as many as I can!

Crap! I can't find any! The Dollar tree that I went to said they didn't get the Tikis, AND weren't expecting to get them...

Somebody got some extras?

I'll trade you the complete set (8 tikis) for a mug or something. Let me know if you're interested.

Sounds like a deal. Depending on how big your mug collection is, I might have something in duplicate.

Pm me with a mugs want list.

Thanks

Ha! And again, as with the Marshall's decanters, I was too fast on the draw: NOW my Dollar Tree has in the tikis! Got 'em all (that is, one of each). Not a whole heckuva lot there, though. Hurry up, Kilikopela! It's in the River Oaks Shopping Center (where TJ Maxx is).

No sconces, but they had the candle holder/tiki stands - great idea, ikitnrev Stewart! It's a good thing!
