Humuhumu’s description

Most people are acquainted with Archie McPhee's through their line of bizarre and inexpensive novelties, Accoutrements. The Accoutrements stuff, including the basic but useful tiki items they produce, are amusing and interesting, but at the store you'll see a whole lot more.
Archie McPhee's played a huge role in my childhood. The old catalogs featured odd items, mainly surplus items purchased from lord-knows-where, and were printed in black & white newsprint, with halftone photos, and descriptions that made you wonder why, oh why, you've been able to live this long without a ceramic glove mold or an alarm clock that shouts BEEBOH!
At the online store, the Accoutrements items have pretty much taken over, but at the actual, real-life store, the old Archie McPhee's is alive, with row after row and bin after bin of fantastic items. It's a must-visit if you're in the Seattle area. It's also right nextdoor to a liquor store.
That said, the tiki items they have are kind of meh. Of course, I own them all anyways.
