Island Trade Store

Midway City, California, United States

Eli "The Original Beachcomber" Hedley ran his Island Trade Store on Beach Blvd in Midway City in the 1950s-1960s.

Today, the location is now home to a Jack-In-The Box fast food restaurant.

In Disneyland, Eli also ran “The Island Trade Store” gift shop in Adventureland for about a decade, which was located where the Bazaar is today.

Eli is a legend among fans of Polynesian Pop, his carvings and decor graced countless tiki bars and locations, and his shop featured tikis by other noted carvers such as Milan Guanko.

Today, Hedley's grandson, Ben Bassham (Bamboo Ben) continues the tradition.
