Hawaiian Christmas Ornaments from Maui Pacifica
If you're looking for something from the islands to hang on the tree and your taste doesn't run to plastic surfing Santas, here's the answer. These nice folks actually make their ornaments by hand - in Hawaii. They even produced a custom Auntie Manalani for me - great service and prices.
Cindy's Lei Shoppe
A full service lei store offering a large variety of fresh Hawaiian leis. Located in Honolulu's China Town they've been around for 45 years. They prepare leis for special occasions, and ship them to the mainland United States. Very nice folks to deal with. I scored MAJOR points with my mom. They arrived extremely fresh and lasted almost a week.
History of the Royal Hawaiian Hotel
HISTORIC HAWAI'I FOUNDATION site with the history and old images of the famous Pink Palace, a Waikiki landmark that plays a part in Point Option
Kohala Book Shop of Hawi, HI, U.S.A. Specialty: Hawaiiana, Oceania/Pacific/Polynesia, Capt. James Cook, Rare and Antiquarian Books, Maps.
Exceptional service and thoughtfulness. I ordered a 1941 Hawaii Guide and paid for regular shipping on the Friday before Easter Weekend. The book was in my South Carolina mailbox on Monday and they had included the 1942 edition at no extra cost. Having the edition immediately before and the edition immediately after Pearl Harbor was a most welcome surprise.
