Just got back from my neighborhood Big Lots.... they started putting their spring stuff, including boxes of Tiki patio lights. Its a string of 7 brightly colored plastic Tikis with painted details, and they're not those little tiny ones on a mini light string, these are bigger, a little bigger than a soup can. I think priced at $6.99.

WE saw the same ones at our local Big Lots. The size is very nice, but the paint is not the best. But for $7, you can't beat them.

I got a set the other week & want to get another next week (if any are left).

Please make note of the lead paint warning & don't hang'em over your food or drinks...

I went to get some today, and just couldn't do it. They are so ugly, and I love cheesy crap. The lantern style are much better but I have a vintage set of those. I did manage to spend $80 on stuff I didn't need, including a cute Simpson's (Krusty) tank top/panties set.

Oh, those lights are bad. Sorry to those that got some, really...sorry.

Hey, ALL my lamps are beautiful, and classy
I was waitin for somebody to comment on my Krusty panties I can't believe it either though, a lamp I don't like. If anyone can fix up those things to look good, it's you.
TP, I stole an idea from you. I'll post pics tomorrow.
