Once again Big Lots! has released their spring tiki line for 2006.



We know that the items are generally knock off replicas (copies of others work), but they have had a few good finds in years past. Here is what they are offering this year. I added a tiki lelani mug in each of the pics for scale.

This fellow is 100% resin. ($19.99)


It has a photoelectric cell on the top, so when the lights dim down the eyes automatically turn on and glow.


This guy was out a few years ago. ($9.99)


This resin bowl is about the size of an ice bucket. ($7.99)




These guys are plastic and a little cheesy. They come in blue and purple and can be easily repaited. There is a battery operated flicker flame inside of the mouth. ($19.99)





But hands down, the best find is the knock off Pele sclupture from the Disneyland ETR mug. This guy is 100% resin and stands 32 inches tall. ($29.99)



Good luck and happy hunting. The first store I visited did not have any of these itmes, the second store had all of them.

Zulu

You take one of those ice buckets, put a plant in it that the leaves or vine hang down covering the somewhat, and it will look cool.
Just sitting there its ugly, but in the right atmosphere with a tropical plant in it..... could be nice.

A cheap flower pot that you won't feel bad about the weather ruining or somebody knocking over.

Mahalo for the update. Maybe I should replace my TikiRoom tiki, which is broken, particularly as there is a Big Lots down the street, next to the Bali (on Sabu's list).

I found bupkis at our local Biglots. (Tho' they did have a wicker loveseat I'm thinking about--but I want to pay $10)

Anyway, for those of you in the MA area, I did see some cool stuff in Grossman's Bargain Outlet. They have a lightup fuzzy palm tree for $120 and I'm really, really thinking about the black, (lavarock?) fountain for $200. Sorry, no pics.

I hit the Big Lots in Downey, CA today and they had it all. I bought one of each and 2 of the Ice Buckets / Planters.

Thanks for the heads up ZuluMagoo!!

Warwick RI Big Lots had very little. I picked up the little 9.99 tiki totem and a bamboo beaded curtain (palm tree on it) for 15. Other than that they had a talking tiki mask (ultra cheesy) and the flaming tiki heads. I was so hoping to find the Disneyland knock off but no luck

I just went to BigLots today in Pasadena and saw a bunch of these things, most everything in the pictures. Not bad for a bunch of cheap plastic stuff! I might grab a thing or two, since the prices are so reasonable.

My Big Lots had it ALL - save the big Disneyland guy. (I suspect they thought, "WTF?" and sent the boxes back!)

Got some amber tiki lights, some more skinny bamboo cylinder lights, and I'm trying to resist Mr. Glowy Eyes. House-painting looms...

Big Lot's in Delray Beach, FL had everything but the bucket. They only had 2 Peles (Now one, yes!). Now that I got it, I really need to know how to properly paint her. The issues are many.
