I picked up two matchbooks from the Sea and Jungle that had two different addresses.

The Glendale location that is featured in this thread.



And maybe an older first location on Los Feliz Bvld. in Los Angeles.




The matchbooks also had a second store advertised called Vivian White's Tropical Bazaar, also with two different locations near the Sea and Jungle stores.

So, no info on the two different locations?

How about a slide from a Charles Phoenix show.



Where is that confounded sign?

Thanks for the link Boris. Last I checked the Mona museum had no plans to reopen. Now they are scheduled to open in Glendale in 2014. I guess we are going have to wait a few more years to finally see the sign.

This has been one of the best threads we have ever looked at. Dan and I together just marveled at what a great place this was. We are so thankful that we still have Oceanic Arts. Did you all notice that Toby tikis was their neighbor? Dan noticed it on the phone book page. What great history. Thank you all for your posts, Wendy and Dan

Wendy, good point about O.A.! As far as I can gather from the elders at O.A., the Sea & Jungle owners WERE Toby Tiki.

Missed out on this great postcard from the Sea and Jungle shop ebay.



What an amazing array of Tikis.



And the names Jungle Jack and Bongo Bob.



Did Bob and Leroy at OA ever have any "stage" names back in the day?

This thread is amazing, so here's a well deserved bump.

Many of the tikis and clubs look like they could have been made by OA, and the lamps look like Orchids of Hawaii lamps. Anyone know if that were the case?

I recently posted a picture of the neon sign on the Vintage Neon Heaven Facebook page and somebody commented that it is in a backyard in Los Feliz.
