Here's a fiberglass Tiki, about 3 feet, that I found in a junk store in Salem, OR. The guy who owned it, bought it from a guy, who bought it from a guy, who bought it from a woman, who had it in her garden. This pic is upright on my computer, but when I post him here, he follows the Beach Bum credo and lays down. Anybody got any ideas? I'm 100% that this isn't a native Tiki, due to the size I doubt it was created for home decoration (could be wrong about that). I know this wasn't part of The Thatch, Aliba, or Jasmine Tree. Well, as much as my rum fogged memory remembers anyway. I never had the chance to visit any of the other older Tiki spots in the Salem/PDX area so I personally, don't know if he graced any of those spots or not. Right now we are calling him Kumonawahnazombee.

These were from Target about five years ago.

Thanks, for the info. Maybe I should shop Target more often. Do they regularly stock Tiki stuff?

There were two models: the one you found and one that was all black and had a different face. Be careful, they're resin, not fiberglass, and they're thin enough to break if not handled with that in mind.

They do NOT regularly stock tiki stuff. They typically only sell tiki merch during tiki season. They, the major retailer, thinks that tiki hibernates like Santa, Cupid and the Easter Bunny.

Thanks for the tips. I'll probably just stick to repainting him and weatherproofing. He's not too fragile though. We took him on a PDX pub crawl. So, Target sells Tiki stuff every summer ? (I guess that is suppose to be Tiki season.)

Coffee Pirate, here's the other Target tiki, shot about an hour ago. It's all black and actually looks better with wet snow outlining some features. Both Target tikis were the same dimensions.

Okay...need a little help identifying this mug:



The only marking on it is the "A" on the bottom.



It is a rather goofy Tiki mug with its Native American looking skirt and sort of Lego Man hands. Can't find it on Ooga Mooga and no idea where it might have come from. Maybe someone has seen that same marking on another mug. Looks new-ish but on the other hand it does have a lot of crazing. I really can't determine it's age but I don't think it's terribly old. It traveled from Florida if that rings a bell for anyone.

Some help would be much appreciated!

Hmm....I think I know how I am going to repaint a few Tikis. Especially the re-gifted party city tikis.

dated around the late 1960s......or so I am told, Oh Myyyyyyy!



The rest of you stop playing around with that cheap ass "Target" Tiki crap!
