The LANIKAI ASSOCIATION along with dozens and dozens of creative small business owners came together today at Lanikai Park on Oahu, to host an incredible event called the LANIKAI CHRISTMAS CRAFT FAIRE.
First of all, I'd like to extend a BIG MAHALO to all the community supporters that volunteered their time and energy to making this event as special as it was.
As a big supporter of small local businesses, I had a preconceived notion of what I was going to see. Upon my arrival, I was PLEASANTLY SURPRISED! I expected to find products from businesses that I would usually find at local stores but instead, I found an array of artists, crafters, photographers and designers from all around the islands. They proudly displayed their talents and passions on luau tables for us customers to see and take home! And guess what, a big majority of the products for sale CAN'T be found in ANY retail store!
I'm so proud that I could swing by to support the small local businesses and I can't wait to showcase a few of them.
Take a look for yourself....
