A lovely, varied, interesting and colorful selection from artists all over the island, and a real pleasure to browse. Particularly loved the affordable lava soap in the shape of a volcano.

We actually had to window shop here as they weren't open yet but we could see a variety of wonderful art. Gorgeous wood bowls and tables, colorful blown glass, carved fish hooks, paintings, photography- definitely a beautiful collection.

As part of a small tour of only a dozen we enjoyed our lunch in a private, art filled tent with Hawaiian music playing. The shop is filled with owner created, local and regional arts and crafts, many quite beautiful. Lunch in Volcano... More

The park itself closed, and we thought that we were going to have to spend the day hunkered down out of the weather. However, by afternoon we decided to brave the wind and rain preceding the worst of the storm and make... More

This is not a standard souvenir place, but great if you are looking for a work of art from Hawaii. They do have smaller items (we bought a book).

We stopped here on the way to Volcano National Park. Very nice selection of arts and crafts by local artists. The staff is welcoming. Would be nice to time a visit when you are hungry; we didn't try the cafe.

While visiting the volcano, my wife and daughter wanted to go here, so we did. There are some very interesting art work, glass blown items, wood and metal works all for sale. Both my wife and daughter purchased items here. Check it out!
