that tiki is not bad by target standards...but do you think that with all the tiki references out there today that whoever was designing these would get a clue and do something really cool lookin?? t....c'mon crazy al, ben, lake surfer and all you carvers out there....... start knocking on some doors at target and show them how it's really done!!! I can't believe that with all the talent here on t.c. you carvers haven't found a way to get your foot in the door and get in on that action!! In fact tiki farm did some giant tikis by crazy al a few years back that were totally awesome...why are those not on the shelves at target istead of the usual dreck they've had for the past few years...??

..sorry to shang-hai the thread...i'll be quiet now......

Tipsy Mac,

Hopefully the new Trader Vic's out your way will not have to rely on "Target Tiki" for decor. Any news yet?

Now my Target also has a ceramic "Tiki Hut" cookie jar. Like the plastic plate and tray, it disappointingly has the words "Tiki Hut" on it. There are, by the way, no tikis on it. But there is a surprised-looking monkey. (The monkey also appears on some of their other summer tableware.)

Erika,

Unless you guys got a different one at the Targets down in Philly the ceramic "tiki hut" is actually a tea/juice/cocktail dispenser with a small tap below the front door. I am going to paint a couple tiki's on mine.

Matt

Rugbymatt is right. (And I am going blind, I guess.) I ran into it again today . . . 'tis a drink dispenser!

What's that burning sensation?



Hot sauce Mustache.

Does it every time. At least it explains his expression.

I went to two targets in my area (Los Angeles) and couldn't find anything... just some bright bowls and a really ugly surf shack water/punch dispenser.

This is what the hula girl plates look like.



If you like the retro looking fabric in the background, it's from the Spring Line of outdoor cushions at Fred Meyer. I finally decided that my old Martha Stewart cushions weren't tiki/tropic enough for Hutikihi II.

The Target in Dover, Delaware has a lot of Tiki stuff like the stuff mentioned, it looks like it went out on the shelves only a few days ago, a lot of stuff didn't even have prices.

Our local Long's Drugs (in Oakland, CA) has very similar stuff. Will post pix (when I can find my camera cable).

I spotted some tiki-ish items (again, without actual tikis) in Target's party supplies area. Paper napkins and invitations with the "Tiki Hut" on them, coconut-shell candles, mini candles that look like the coconut-shell candles, a plastic leaf platter and another platter I'm not remembering, a plastic-sheet wall decor roll, leis, a paper lantern garland with flowers, and some other items---including, just to mess things up, a limbo stick and an inflatable parrot.

When I went in today, there was alot of tiki-themed bathroom stuff-shower curtains, handtowels, rugs. I picked up a rug & handtowel, before my kids hit me up for their Easter gifts-GuitarHero-Xbox & Bratz Diamond Something- I put my stuff back, I'm just happy I got my Squid screwup sculls, we're all happy it's spring...

someone mentioned this tiki was pricey for target standards. How much are they running there?

My "long haired tiki" was $99.00. He is pictured in my previous posting.
