This store no longer exists on Hilo. You can find it on the other islands. We looked and looked.... and were told it had closed. Don't even bother looking on the Big Island.

After our tour, the tour bus left us off so we could go to Hilo Hatties. Where they drop you off a tour guide walks you to their store about 3 blocks away. Well all you hear about is Hilo Hattie's so we figured we had to go there. What a disappointment. A gift shop with not much in it,... More

We were sorry to see that Hilo Hattie's, an institution in Hilo has gone out of business. Don't know the details, but this good shop for souvenirs is no more.

Cute store and appreciated the free juice drink and they do have some lovely clothing for all sizes plus kids but they are very pricey. Perhaps everything is made in Hawaii and that's why? Anyway nice to look around and some good gift items too.

This shop has everything you need! It was fun to go in and see everything Hawaiian and be able to pick up souvenirs for everyone in my family. The price ranges went from ok to oh no, however fun to stop in take a look and buy a couple things.

My parents have been to Hawaii many times so we all stopped here cause my mom is a shopper. This is one of those places the cruise Ships take all their guests to. Wile it has lots of Hawaiian clothes and trinkets and it is fun to stop it is expensive. Stop for a quick look but move on.

Duck in betweeen tour buses for a quick pick of Hawaiian garb and curios/memorabilia. Prices are standard, and the quality is good. Just the place to pick up something for those folks back home.

One stop shop for all of your souvenir needs, or is it? Not if you make it to Target, K~mart or Walmart first, they're much cheaper on most items, including post cards.
