Here is the link...
Look at these adorable hula onesies. My friend Cari makes them and I sell them as fast as they come in. She is also making me a boys version that says
"Mr. Aloha" on the front.
I don't have any in the photo because they all sold out!
The drums in the photo are made on the Big Island by artist Thomas Alexander of Volcano Percussion. They are made from curly mango wood. They sound amazing and are stunning.
The butterflies I have in the store are part of a conservation project to keep them from becoming endangered. They are bred and live out their happy normal lives and then are collected and become pieces of art. They can be drop shipped anywhere for $15.
Look at my mean girls. Oh how I love my mean girls! The artist signs them on their hiney and they come with the sassiest little story cards you can think of. These are very naughty children. And they are all one of a kind.
I'll try to get on here and update more often and if you see something you have to have, give the shop a call!

special finds from my travels
I've been making jewelry for a couple of years now and my dream has been to open my own storefront with featured artists from the islands and around the world. I started my search for the perfect space in Maui, then Oahu, and finally I landed in Kilauea, on the North Shore of Kauai. This island is unbelieveably beautiful...lush, green, tropical~ and has the most amazing flora & fauna, waterfalls and clear turqoise waters. Having a life and opening my boutique here on Kauai is really a blessing.
My shop is at the Kilauea Plantation Center (on the way towards the lighthouse). This is a great spot to be in with 2 really nice clothing boutiques right next door ~ Ginger and Oskar's. There is also a great health food store~The Healthy Hut, an ice cream shop, a hair salon and The Fish Market ~great food. I am happy to be in this collective environment and to share some really wonderful artisan work with the community.
Please come by and check out 'Nest'....
Opening the first week of October~ fingers crossed!
