The tiki rug I found was ble and looked much like the serving tray and sheets. A smattering of tiki with drink glasses. I looks like a bar book cover. Is this the one everyone is talking about? I found it folded in a square on an endcap.

Target's tiki lava lamp is on sale for $13.49 this week and the huge non-tiki lava lamp is $37 (down from $49.99). The sale lasts through Saturday. The tiki one does not appeal to me as, IMHO, it looks like a forced combination of designs that doesn't work, but I think I'll jump on the big one as I wanted the same thing a few years ago but didn't get it because it was much more expensive; and we all NEED more and bigger lava lamps...right? (On a quiet night you can hear MasterCard laughing)

Hoping to not be redundant, did anyone else see the tiki car seat cover in the automotive section? It black velourish fabric with the tiki head design in the center. Not too bad looking. Almost classy.I'm so tempted but can't a afford $20 a seat cover.

Also,the hawaian shirt air fresher was too good to pass up.

Went to Target last night and found a tiki door hanger in the notebook section. It is a pic of a tiki and under it it says "Keep Out". Instead of Keep out it would be cooler if it said tiki room or nothing at all. I still bought it anyways. When else will you find a tiki door hanger? Also, on the flip side, there is a dry erase board (with a pen) so you can write a message to whoever is going to enter your room. No tiki on that side though.

Can anyone post a pic of the target tiki Chinese checker set? I've yet to see it in any of the four Targets I frequent.

Also, a thought on the bases of the lava lamps, sans lava container, at both Target and Spencers: Placed below a wall-mounted mask or other object of texture, they would spotlight it well from a spooky lower angle. The lightbulb is slightly recessed into the base, so if it were elevated a bit, say on a small shelf below the mask (like a mug shelf behind a bar), the light wouldn't get in your eyes either. If the lava lamps get cheap enough on clearance, its something to think about.

Just remember that they do throw off a fair amount of heat. And heat (as is good taste) is the enemy of art. If you refit the base with a fluorescent bulb, it might be better. If you get on of the natural spectrum one, it won't look bad, and you could put a gel over it if you wanted mood lighting.

Thanks for the pics, TNTiki; my Target just got something new (to me) in today: the chalk boards and dry erase boards. Both have little tiki magnets that might be from the same sculp as the Chinese checker pieces. A lot of this stuff appeals to me for the sake of future small model photography.

Target has at least three sizes of stores: standard, smaller stores which managers have told me contain about 85% of the variety of standard stores, and Super Targets. Add to this the fact that Target likes to have a slight variance from store to store in inventory and its logical that some of us are going to find things that others never see. There may also be regional variation as I never saw most of the hula stuff.

Good points, I was thinking specifically of lighting small objects like wood masks or plaques at a safe distance. I'd be more worried about UV fading with a fluorescent bulb. This little guy is one candidate I've had trouble displaying because he is so small, dark, and his texture washes out from the light spilling on him from other sources:

I'll try this out and take as test shot.

Hey tikijackalope; Found the tiki Chinese Checker set yet? If not, I was just at the Target on Metcalf (on the north end just south of I-35) and they had two sets. Still a fair selection of mugs, too.

Silverline, I just saw your last post. I was remiss in checking this thread; its probably a lost cause but if you can still get one of those sets, I'll take it. I went to this thread to post that Target has some of their tiki stuff at 50% off and some at 75%. Some of it is not on sale at all though.

I was in Target today and not only did they have a HUGE LINE of tiki stuff, but it was all on sale! Not just kept in one department either! The 'back to school' dorm area had lamps, clocks of various tikiness, and even bobble head tikis! Other area in store had HUGE tiki drinking mugs and other tiki stuff! Check out your stores! No shirts though My store is in Williamsburg, VA.

sheriinva,

Thanks for the update on the Tiki sale at Target. Here's a thread that talks all about it.

Targets in the San Diego area do indeed seem to be clearing all the tiki stuff out -- picked up my dry erase board yesterday for $6.49.
