I've been collecting postcards for a while now and it's amazing to me that there are still obscure, undiscovered (by me) tiki images that can knock my socks off.

This is my latest find:


Actually that's just one part of a larger postcard:


My photo doesn't do the nice deep colors justice. Here's the text from the back:

The Purple Lantern

Main Store:
1217 25th Ave. Gulfport, Miss. 39501
Branch: 130 Magnolia Ave. (at Mary Mahoney's) Biloxi, Miss. 39530

Browse in the 26 Exotic Markets in the Main Store. With Gifts. Foods. Books. Toys and Accessories. Main Store Winner of 3 National Merchandising Awards. Biloxi Branch (Opened Labor Day 1972) Not to be Missed.


Kind of like an early mini-mall I guess?

Bigbro - have you ever seen this Witco photo before? If not, then you are definitely welcome to scan it.

What was this Witco piece called?

Isn't that "Big Joe"? They have a couple at the Hala Kahiki.

Nice oversized card Sabu! You must of had an obscure keyword to have found it, makes the hunt more fun that way.
