Humuhumu’s description

Oceanic Arts has been a major contributor to tiki culture since 1956, when it was opened by LeRoy Schmaltz and Bob Van Oosting, who still run the store today. Bob and LeRoy have provided carvings, decorations, signage, light fixtures, and all the outfitting needed for a tiki location to nearly all of the major spots, including Disney. Oceanic Arts is open to the public, and serves as a Home Depot of sorts for the tikiphile.

Swung by to pick up s a few mugs and a book last week. Wound up chatting to Bob and was almost late picking up my daughter from school. The folks here are the nicest people in tiki.
