FYI, I returned to Big Lots today and accidentally discovered a second model of the tea light I previously saw.
Anyone come across any others?

Thanks for the tip on the Garden Ridge tikis (upper left in photo below). I nabbed a couple of them over the weekend, they were on sale (buy one at the regular price of 30 clams, get one 50% off). I was disappointed that they're flat on back rather than fully cylindrical, but they are nicely molded/ painted and the glowing eyes are very cool

Just thought I'd join in and post a group shot of my tiki finds for this year so far (minus one I forgot in the trunk of my car).
I came across some great mugs and even some super-cheap glass floats, plus several other items, some of which are thanks to tips I came across here at Tiki Central!
If anybody's interested in the details, I've added a gallery for Tiki Hunt '08 over at my site showing all the stuff I came across this year, including the stuff I didn't buy.
Hopefully, others here can benefit from some of my leads, like I did theirs.

I don't know how many of you have the privilege of shopping at a Mill's Fleet Farm (your one stop shop for farming supplies, hunting supplies, building supplies, commercial grade pizza ovens and meat grinders, and camoflage lingerie) but I saw an interesting tiki item there I thought I'd report.
It's an approximately 2 feet tall solar outdoor light. It almost looks like a traditional style tiki, with full body and head dress, although you can tell it's resin when you are up close to it. The solar panel is on the head, and at night the eyes light up.
Sorry I don't have any pictures but I didn't buy it yet. It was $39.99, now it's $29.99. When it comes down to $9.99 I'll pick one up and post a picture.

Okay. I realize that it's now Summer 2008, but I don't think the Summer tiki store finds really deserve their own thread.
I was at Home Depot this weekend and spotted a different planter. At least I think it's a planter. They had a bunch of tikis too, but they weren't worth photographing. Giant white teeth.
