When a couple moves in together, the first argument is typically about each other's junk -- his golf clubs, bowling trophies, and 400 pairs of sneakers versus her...actual junk. Finding a way to make their stuff work together, the engaged pair (congrats!) behind Tikihed Tiki Co.
Out of Saginaw, Tikihed's an online curio shop run by differently obsessed love-roommates: she's an Alvin native into (mostly) functional mid-century and Atomic-era objects found at garage sales, thrift stores, etc, while he's a Grapevine-raised former car customizer whose kitsch hunting was inspired by an elderly Crystal Beach tiki artist (if you liked Crystal Pepsi, you'll love Crystal Tiki). His vintage Pacific-island merch ranges from ceramic & carved-wood mugs sporting Maori tribesman and crouched surfers, to totem-faced oversized forks and spoons, to a set of 11 hors d'oeuvres picks topped with bright blue chiseled-stone heads; he's also taught himself to make palm-wood statues (headdress'd kings, etc), sometimes sold online, though often they go to charity or as raffle bounty at local car shows ("sold to the man who appears to have a little Captain in him"). Meanwhile, her steez spans desk lamps, clocks, luggage, operable period phones (you need the wood-encased Executive touchtone model w/ retractable cord), and appliances like "groovy" JCPenney speakers and a Westinghouse toaster from the days when the bread was as white as the people with money for appliances.
Tikihed also specializes in retro cameras that might or might not work but'll definitely look cool, from video models (Gaf, Bell & Howell) to still shooters like a Kodak Handle, same-make Instamatics, and a matched pair of Polaroid "Swingers" -- because no matter what a couple's issues, that's always the responsible solution.
