Oceanic Arts - Tropical Decor
12414 Whittier Blvd., Whittier, CA
\Welcom to the Tiki mecca!

From the road, OA appears as a rather nondescript blue-gray warehouse. But once inside, you are suddenly surrounded by tikis, waterfalls, primitive huts and other tropical decor. In the photo above, plastic tikis, surfboards and tiki torches are hidden among the plastic palm trees.

OA carries tropical/tiki decor, nautical decor, party supplies and other tropical wonders for sale and/or rent. They also have numerous artifacts from old Tiki Restaurants on display

The OA tiki mug "museum" (below) is not to be missed. OA provided decor for most of the world's best tiki bars and restaurants since the early 1960s. Naturally, this put them in the perfect position to build a phenomenal tiki mug collection. I am (glazed) green with envy.

OA also provided Disney with decor for Adventureland in all four Magic Kingdoms! The masks, tiki poles, carved signs and other decorative items all originated here. Disney also came to OA when they needed to decorate The Polynesian Resort at Walt Disney World in Florida.
