The Tropical Trader at 2600 Biscayne Blvd, Miami, Florida:

This is a press photo from July 1968, announcing the demolition of the property. Looks like it was an old turn-of-the-century house converted into a store.

The Tikis out front appear to be the cheaper mass-produced Orchids of Hawaii versions that we see near at the tail-end of the tiki heyday, and not the finer-carved examples from earlier years:

Inside the front window I see what might be a carousel horse spanning the first 2 windows.
