Primitive Art.

Oceanic Arts: Tiki HQ

In the early 1950s, two friends traveled to Fiji, Polynesia, and other places, where they fell in love with island culture. Upon return, they opened Oceanic Arts, which has been in business for 60 years. The staff is friendly and encourages visitors to roam freely and take pictures. Their goods are for sale, others are for rent, and they have stocked scores of movie sets. The store is a blast.
