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,

Not a real fan of this store. Its the same products and high prices as all other stores on other islands.

My wife & I made a stop at Hilo Hattie on our last day on Kauai. Yes, it's a tourist trap in the traditional sense of the term, but the staff is very welcoming (we each received a shell lei when we entered the store) and the selection of goods & gifts is extensive and the prices are surprisingly low...

Located real close to Walmart, Hilo Hattie is a good place to find all types of Hawaiian wear of all kinds. Lots of souvenir things to pick up for family and friends. Parking can be a little crowded at times.
