Hi, my husband and I are constructing a tiki bar for our basement. The construction of the roof will be completed this weekend. Can anyone give me any suggestions on where to buy the thatching material that should be used. I need about 60 sq feet of it. Also, if you have any advice on putting it on that would be great also!
Have a good week,
Tracey

Shipping is a big price on this stuff. I have contacted places on Ebay that sell and found they will deal on a larger order off Ebay. In Florida you might try Safari Thatch, but I am not sure they will sell to you retail. Same with Benson Imports. Good prices, but I don't know if they sell retail. Search for both and you'll find them.

I am in Baltimore. I ordered Thatching from Bosko. It took about a week to get here.
