Humuhumu’s description

Exotical has been serving Southern California's aloha wear needs since 1964, more than 40 years. Owner Paul Orloff still runs the shop today, which is open five days a week, Tuesday through Saturday. Exotical carries a wide array of nice aloha wear -- some of it is vintage, but has never been purchased and worn. Prices can be on the high side, but the uniqueness of what you can find here, combined with the uniqueness of the shopping experience, can make it worthwhile. Exotical used to be much larger (it used to occupy the stores on either side of where it sits today), and used to carry a lot of tropical import items like bamboo and furniture. They still carry a few tropical items beyond the aloha wear, including vintage albums, furniture and coconut monkeys.

A new landlord came in. The store moved to 310 East Orangethorpe Ave, Suite J, Placentia, 92870.

I drove past this place yesterday and it is empty. I think the rona made it finally go out of business. Very sad. It has been there forever.

This store has been there forever. They have a ton of clothes and some are probably vintage. They also have cheap and fine jewelry, hair doo dads, perfume and some native Hawaiian items.
