    Hockey tape would work. It's a fabric tape and it doesn't get all gooey. It comes in a variety of colors and widths too.

    Wally World has a great many things hidden in the far reaches of its sprawl.

    Look in the hardware section by the duct tape; there are several varieties of vinyl tape and such. You can also look in sporting goods for the hockey stuff, or maybe tape for golf club grips?

    Gaffers tape might be a good solution, i'm not sure if it will get gooy but it dosn't leave a reside like duct tape, although its not a local store type of product, usually Stage and lighting, rental staging, and production houses would have it. I work for an A/V company and thats what we use on everything.

    Wally World also has a vinyl repair kit, ~$6, in by the automotive touchup paint.
