So you're going to the mall to shop for gifts? Why not stop into a store where gifts are all Handmade in Hawaii?
CREATIONS OF HAWAII is a non profit organization, "whose mission is to bring together businesses, offer opportunities for professional growth through education on the cultural arts, share positive ideas and promote the "spirit of Aloha" among its members, their clients and the community as well as supporting Native Hawaiian, local Artisans and local businesses since 1991." -Creations of Hawaii-
This thoughtful organization hosts farmer's markets regularly around the island and in Pearlridge Shopping Center throughout the year. They provide a foot-up for local artisans who have products that are handmade in Hawaii. It goes without saying that their support has positively affected the local community as well as small local businesses in Hawaii.
NOW, you can see an array of local artists and their products, displayed in a store in the Pearlridge Shopping Center (across from Payless Shoe Source, uptown location). Take a look below to see some of the unique finds at this location. Keep in mind that the vendors within the store will be changing regularly throughout this holiday season so be sure not to hesitate as they may not be there upon your return.
Thank you very much for reading my blog and keep me posted if you should purchase anything from these unique local crafters as I'd love to REPOST a photo of what you purchased! Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Happy Holiday Shopping!!
Love and Aloha,
