Get your tiki on before they're gone.

Midway artist/sculptor Charlie Knight is moving his iconic roadside shop Palm Tiki to Munson in a few months. The shop has been a mainstay on U.S. Highway 98 between Navarre and Gulf Breeze for over 25 years, with intricate tiki heads and carved pelicans sitting on bright blue pilings near the road.

Knight started carving tikis back in the late '70s/early '80s after seeing a carver on the East Coast.

"It seemed kinda cool," Knight recalls. Later, he spent some time in Mexico surfing and working on his wood-carving skills.

"I'd have nothing but tikis and people would come and ask if I had anything else, so I started carving birds, sea turtles, aquatic life," he said.

He is expanding into commission work for more complex carvings, and the move will allow him to have a larger enclosed workshop and display area.

"It's been a good run here on the highway," says Knight, "and I'm gonna continue what I'm doing, developing more of my art skills and doing more fine art carvings, but we'll always have a few tikis around."
