Dropped by a local antique store today and saw a giant Tiki in the back area there if anyone is looking for a giant Tiki


It was at a place called Warehouse 1333 on Redondo Avenue......Cool

I couldn't get to it but I'm sure a lot because the standard Tiki inside that looked like this was $350.
So I knew the big Tiki was definitely out of my range



Ther number is (562) 494-1333

Is it new?
It somewhat resembles the old ones from the Royal Hawaiian in Laguna.

I'm thinking it was from the White House!

Another large tiki found in Long Beach (Signal Hill)!
While out tiki hunting today I found a tiki statue that was well over 6 feet tall. It had a label on it saying it was carved in Huntington Beach during the 1950's. One of the TC experts will hopefully be able to figure out its origin.
The statue was either $750 or $850 if that's in your price range.
It was in the outdoor section of the Long Beach Antique Mall II. The mall has quite a bit of Hawaiiana, Mid Century Modern and tiki merchandise. There was even a quilt made out of Hawaiian and Primo Beer shirts. None of it cheap, but by the time you add shipping costs to anything you buy online from ebay, etsy or shopgoodwill, it is about the same.
