I posted recently with some pictures of some of the sconces with the palm tree designs, on which I had displayed my dollar tikis.

Those sconces/shelves are right next to my main front door. This morning, when leaving for work, I closed the door, and heard something falling onto the floor inside. I opened the door again, to discover that one of the sconces had suffered a malfunction. The back wall metal mounting device had separated from the main plastic body, and everything fell to the floor.

Fortunately, nothing broke. It turned out the scres used to connect the mounting device to the scone were only about 1/8 inch long.

The end moral is, do not display anything of value on these cheap $1 scones without reinforcement nmaterial. I will be taking my Hukilau mug down until I can find a more reliable means to display it.

Dollar Tree items may appear to look good at first, but don't expect much structural integrity - especially for $1.

Bwana...I'm not really following you around tonight, it just feels that way.

I, too, went to the Dollar Tree two days ago (I was a virgin to that store) and they DID have them, but they were ALL GONE. I feel your pain. I was going to pick some up for a friend as well, but that plan got 86'd.

A word of caution about these little guys: they break really easily (cue Brady Bunch music). Had a tiki in my office. It fell off my desk and onto carpet and now he's disabled.

Anyone scored anymore tikis at the DT stores? I wonder if they had more shipped after the first shippment sold out so quickly. I have checked some stores with no luck.

Some of these have been going for ridiculous prices on Ebay....BUT not everyone has a Dollar Tree in their neighborhood. Plenty of people want these and will pay a few extra bucks to get them.

Once again I will put my offer out there....I have an extra set of these (all eight) that I'm willing to trade for a mug. TikiGardener and I did a trade recently...he got the tiki's and I got a mug I've wanted for a while. Send me an PM if interested.

Indeed,
Juno shipped fast, and packed them well. Not a broken one amongst these delicate treasures.

I'd dig a second set, but instead I'll vouch for Juno, and say if you need them, don't pay top dollar on ebay, instead do a trade with Juno. You'll be very happy.

Yeah, without even trying I got six of these buggahs. Chongolia's mother sent them out to me from Florida. My favorites being the ones with the little buddies hangin out with the big buddies. Very humorous!
The roundheaded one is kinda wierd but still pretty cool for a buck.
Now I have to get all eight. The two I am mising are the three amigos and Ku( first and sixth ones going left to right)



We have a dollar tree close by I will have to check it out today. If they are out of them anybody still have the two I am missing and wanting to trade/sell?

Triolgy of Terror scared the crap out of me when I was younger. Karen Black's name still runs a chill down my spine. She was in another horror movie called "Burnt Offerings" that made me have to sleep with a light on through junior high.
