This location has been closed permanently. There was a second outlet in Hilo but it is closed -- whether temporarily or permanently I can't say. This was one of our favorite places to buy gifts to take home.

Please note: this store is closed! The only location on the Big Island is in Hilo. This and a lot of closed tourist shops reflect the economic struggle that is present. Tourists are there, but they are no longer prepared to pay too much money...More

We were greeted with a seashell lei upon entering the store. They had souvenirs, clothing and jewelry. I purchased a black and purple short sleeve dress for about $35.

I'm glad we got here before they closed this location. We got a couple of good deals like 99 cents for a calendar they're only going to have the Hilo location and the online store.
