Nice selection of local artwirk

It is nice to see locally produced art, not a lot of imported stuff. There was a nice selection in all price ranges, and lots of different things.

You can find many items or souvenirs at Trudy's and many of the items are made by local artists. Her products are well made done by professionals. When visiting the Kona area at the International Market do stop by there and see her products.

Trudy's was a great place to go for Local Made Jewlery. Shad a Wonderful shop inside the International Market Place. But alas, she has retired and her shop is closed.

We came here a few times whilst on vacations in the past. We have been in Kona for over two years, and I really enjoy this shop when looking for something special. They have great art, jewelry, and many more treasures. They of course have Trudy, yes, Trudy is real, not just a store name. Very knowledgeable, very helpful, always... More

Nice folks in a hard to find spot but good spot to wonder in and get your questions answered by the "boss". Real interesting items that you won't find often done with aloha as they say. Seems to me well worth it and close to the Target store too. Other shops in this little mall and lots of parking.

Really nice variety of wares from Hawaiian artists! Wife bought herself a pretty dichroic pendant showing a volcano and a coconut tree, and bought me a great koa wood/surfboard resin pen. Many, many other beautiful and unique gifts. Ample parking at the International Market where this shop is located.

Much better shopping than downtown Kailua and not many people know about it. Lots of nice gifts to buy made by people on the island. I picked up several Christmas ornaments hand made by a local gal for $8 each and they are so pretty. Perfect little gifts. Don't miss this off the path shopping area.

We discovered this place as we were leaving Kona. Gorgeous products, reasonable prices. Wish I could have spent more time there as it is a great place to browse.
