My boss just returned from Encinitas CA and she had discovered some little Tiki store that had a bedroom set up in Tiki (?) but also sold things like coasters and mousepads - of which I received a mousepad with Florida-esque Tikis (big white teeth and lots of color - possibly photoshopped after the fact). I was wondering if anyone might now this place? She didn't get a name and she didn't think they would have a website either.

It's actually in Lucadia, it's like a mini tiki bizarre where people rent out a little space to sell their wares. The best stuff is outside in the back, big carvings by locals and the owner of the store, if she owns the tiki, will barter. Lotsa mugs etc. I'll post some pics of the place soon... Great store for sure!

Yeah, it gets a little goofy around there. Leucadia is considered a community in the city of Encinitas, like Cardiff-by-the-Sea.

Thanks KuKu - that's the one! In fact, those are the two Tikis on my new mousepad! LOL Now I'm jealous my BOSS went to this place and I haven't! Hard to do when you live up here in the Seattle area. You don't happen to know if they do any web business or have any other pics - the boss thought they weren't that kind of place. Just curious. Nice Tikis you got there too!

This store has great curb appeal and I love the bamboo bed in the back! Great store, worth the visit when in North County!
