Now there are only 3 left: Ala Moana shopping center in Honolulu, Oahu; Lihue, Kauai and Hilo, Big Island. The factory store in Honolulu closed-- it... More

From the sea shell necklace everytime we visited to the plentiful selection of items, including clothing at a good price and nice staff, Hilo Hattie is where we go every time we go to the Hawaiian Islands!

My sisters and I were greeted with shell leis as soon as we walked in. I headed over to the huge selection of souvenirs while my sisters picked their own oysters at the jewelry counter and the pearls out of their oysters were set in beautiful ring settings. I had a chance to speak with the manager and she told... More

I am trying to buy Canadian clothing (very difficult to find) but when in Hawaii, I will gladly purchase items made in Hawaii! My husband picked up two aloha shirts and I got a pretty summer dress, well made and not overpriced and made in Hawaii. There are plenty of knick knacks, macadamia nuts, coffee, and souvenirs to purchase as... More

We were then offered to select a key to a treasure box, to no avail...then offered to select a discount card. Yay, 40% off,,,of our pick of an oyster to find... More

This store has a large selection of Aloha shirts/dresses (do not buy matching shirts/dresses), T-shirts, jewelry, souvenirs and even an oyster bar where you can try and get a pearl. Prices are mid to high end. If you need souvenirs prior to departing a convenient stop on the way to the airport.

Just not what I was looking for . I wanted something more unique. Flowery Hawaiian shirts. I was looking for more high end shirts.

Right on the main highway. When you arrive you are greeted and given a shell necklace. This store has it all! We got matching clothing for a luau we were attending. Nice gift store too,
