(Disneyland, 1957) An early paper shopping bag from the Tiki’s Tropical Traders souvenir stand in Adventureland. For the first several years of Disneyland’s operation, the shop was owned by Eli Hedley, the original Beachcomber. In exchange for carving early Adventureland tikis and offering general scenic decor, Hedley was given the shop space rent free. Walt negotiated the lucrative arrangement with Hedley personally. The fine tradition of offering rubber snakes, glowing skulls and shrunken heads to young adventurers continues to this day in approximately the same location as this 1950s Adventureland original. Anything from this shop is a rare find. The bag measures 11.75 x 8.5 in. In good condition with some creasing from use.
