This has been a place to find great Aloha wear for more than half a century.

Located between Maunakea and Smith Street, this lei stand is one of the more inviting shops in Chinatown. It's just a small sliver of a stall that is dominated by the huge refrigerated case with glass windows and an adjacent desk. The case is filled with some of the most beautiful fresh flower lei creations. The multitude of colors and styles are worthy of a photo or two. Furthermore, the brighter pua melia and orchid lei will most likely capture your attention first, and also happen to be the least expensive.
One of the more interesting shops in the Honolulu International Airport, Hawaii Market offers you a collection of Hawaiian treats, snacks, and products that are both unique and perfect to take home as gifts for your family and friends. The shop is located along the garden concourse just past the restaurants. This place also has a good selection of Kona coffee, macadamia nuts, candy, condiments, cookies that can only be found in the islands. Moreover, if you have cravings for salty treats, they offer island made jerky that goes perfectly with that in-flight movie on a long flight.
The Island Snow in Kailua has become more famous for its "shave ice" (a tasty Hawaiian treat similar to a snow cone) than for its brand of apparel. You'll often see a line of people out the door, especially on the weekend. On the walls (and on the website) you'll find photos of President Barack Obama during his trips to Island Snow, one of his favorite spots while he's in town. In addition to the shave ice counter, the rest of the store sells apparel, mainly catering to surfers, skateboarders and snowboarders. It's a great place for souvenir t-shirts. Snowboards, watches, sunglasses and other apparel can also be found here.
