I finally got mine today. It was my 2nd attempt at buying them because when I went 2 days ago, I didn't realize the place is cash/check only. Well, as luck would have it, I got 'em home and as I was placing them on their shelf, one fell and broke in half. Guess what, they're hollow! For some reason, the Brady Bunch Tiki is coming to mind... with as much trouble as I'm having, I'm not sure I was meant to own these.

The stores are called Greenbacks in Phoenix. Bought my tikis today at the South Phoenix store, but haven't found the sconces yet. Great find!

Dollar Tree is fabulous! I discovered the tikis there last night, then searched here today to discover that others had as well. A couple of years ago I found a bunch of little plush Creatures from the Black Lagoon, from the Universal Monsters collection and bought all they had. Dollar Tree turns up some good stuff on a regular basis...

I like the $6.50 shipping charge. They weigh nothing......are they shipping rocks with it?

Thank you Rustbeltcat,
I've purchased about 50 tikis along with tropical decor at the local Greenbacks and Dollartree stores over the last week.
The next luau should be a door prize affair now.

The Dollar Tree here in Hiram also has the Shasta Tiki Punch. Also, I found the last two tiki's, so I was able to get all eight.

Their uses are seemingly endless! I velcro-ed one to my dashboard. Now he can be traded out with my hula girl whenever I want. Hope he doesn't melt in the summer sun!

I just got my set from Juno. These guys a pleasantly bigger than I expected! And all survived their journey.
I just have to wonder how much the Chinese pay their workers to make them available to Americans for a buck each.

Juno, yer Mmugs goin out tomorrow!

Thanks again!

I wish I could find a coupla stragglers, but all of the LA area stores I've hit have been cleaned out.

But they did have all sortsa bathroom accessories. Shame I don't have a tiki room with its own bathroom....

I see they removed "wood" from the description. A TC'er probably got to him.

They remind me of a few years back when Jack Daniels had a X-mas gift set with 2 globe shot glasses and a bottle of hootch that went for $10 but on ebay I got $15 for the glasses so it was like getting paid to drink. I had trouble keeping up with the demand, heh heh.

I have one complete set of these left plus duplicates of a few of them. Anyone interested in a trade for a mug?
