“Tacky buy you can get free parking”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2013

Lots of advertising and bus stops put this place in the forefront of Lahaina. The shop was a wide mixture of items for sale. Buy a $5 gift and you get free parking. Shop had some nice things and some tacky. Checking out can be confusing. The shop was set up to go in one way and exit another so you gravitate that direction, however thy kept turning us away to check out at another location which took awhile to find.

“PASSED ITS PRIME!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013

I used to always include a stop at Hilo Hattie regardless of the island. The Lahaina branch is easy to find on Front Street further at the end.

They still offer the little shell necklace when you come in.

I used to find many food products including real Kona Coffee, many styles of Candies, Macadamia Nuts, and lots of tourist style knick knacks to take back home. The amount of offerings seems very reduced from the old days.

There are still tons of different Hawaiian clothing styles, different patterns in every color. The fabrics don't feel very nice; kind of rough and cheap feeling. Not a soft material like some of the more upscale shops featuring Hawaiian wear. The colors are a bit garish and patterns not that thrilling.

I was really disappointed and after about 10 minutes I left...never to return again.

Too bad...
