Humuhumu’s description

Freaky Boutiki started out in 1999 as the Freak Factory, selling a mix of original art, retro items, surf stuff and midcentury pieces. After a fire in 2006, owner "Hodad" Hank Adelson transformed it into Freaky Boutiki, with a stronger emphasis on all things Polynesian Pop.
The store bills itself as a "coastal curiosity shoppe" and has a great mix of items: art by modern tiki artists, Oceanic art pieces, nautical knick-knacks, tiki mugs, aloha wear, carvings, and more.
Freaky Tiki has work by many well-beloved tiki artists, including Ken Ruzic, Heather Watts, Derek Yaniger, Doug Horne, Sam Gambino, Squid, Tiki Tony, Shag and more.

How to find it

Freaky Boutiki is in San Diego's Mission Beach neighborhood. A sign above the shop still says "Freak Factory Smoke Shop", and there is a "Freaky Boutiki" neon sign in the window. The side of the building has a you-can't-miss-it tiki in bas relief.

Parking

There is limited street parking, and a free parking lot a couple blocks east on Santa Clara Place.

Disappointing - Looks like it's more of a smoke shop at this point than anything Tiki. A few mugs, records, and carvings, but not worth going too far out of your way for.

Cool place. Lots of mugs. Featuring Munktiki, Tikifarm and more. Sometimes they have older mugs and they still sell them for retail. Is a smoke shop too, but you gotta stay in business on this busy street. I think it is a must for you to check out if you are a mug collector!

This is a fun place--I like stop and check out what's new when I get around that area--I went for the Tikot gallery show and it was cool to see all the artists work, I usually just see online in person.

Great staff--super friendly--I love when I come they have a tiki being carved right out in front of the store!
