I first heard this artist on the main drag, guitar and voice clear and sweet. As I got closer I could see her playing there on the street, with a small amp and microphone setup, so I stayed and listened for a while. I later bought her CD which was a short 5 song EP.
Very talented local singer/songwriter.
Open up the link for a listen.

I checked out most of the jewelry stores at the Hilton Hotel where we stayed at. Boy, was everything expensive! I wanted to buy a Tahitian pearl pendant. They ranged from $600 to $1,000 depending on the design and if it had diamonds. So, I checked out the stores in Chinatown. What a difference! The pearls were not perfect like the expensive ones at the Hilton so I checked them thoroughly. I found a nice one with a large pearl with several tiny diamond bagets. Originally, they wanted $330 but offered it to me for $295. I said I would buy it for $275 and they accepted.
A tradition for 50 years, local artists display their creations in Kapiolani Park on the Honolulu Zoo fence each Saturday and Sunday from 9am-4pm. While many artists hang their paintings/photos on the zoo fence, others hang them on peg board stands in areas of the fence that are covered with shrubery. It's a great place to browse in the shade of the ancient trees of the park and to talk to the artists who are all very friendly and happy to talk about their artwork, the weather, or local politics.
What to buy: Original paintings, photographs, mostly with a Hawaiian theme.
What to pay: Varies

Anchored by the historic Aloha Tower, the Marketplace is a nice collection of shops and restaurants. It was built in 1994 in an effort to redevelop this area just south (makai) of the downtown area. It's set right on the oceanfront at Honolulu Harbor and hosts the visit of periodic cruise ships. The atmosphere is also much less chaotic than at Ala Moana Shopping Center. Some of my favorite stores are the large Honolua Surf Co. (beachwear), Hawaiian Ukelele (which has some beautiful handmade instruments), and Happa (nice collection of koa frames and original and reprints of vintage ads, menus, etc.).
Hands down my favorite eaterys is Chai's Island Bistro. See my restaurant tips for a review of Chai's. They also have live Hawaiian music by some of the most popular contemporary artists so it's great just to go have a drink and a listen!
What to buy: Clothes, crafts, instruments, beach wear, food!
What to pay: Varies
THERE ARE FEW OF THESE STORE AROUND HAWAII AND THAT ALSO AROUND HONOLULU AND OAHU...THIS STORE REMINDS ME OF LONG AGO 60'S LOOK..I GUESS STYLES JUST CYCLE AND COME BACK AGAIN.THERE THE LESS IT IS A POPULAR STORE FOR BOTH LOCALS AND TOURIST.AND THIS PARTICULAR ONE IS LOCATED RIGHT ON KALAKAUA ST SO THE MAJORITY OF SHOPPERS WILL BE TOURISTS. THE IDEA OF THE STORE WAS STARTED BY JONELLE FUJITA.. ..Jonelle continued designing and sewing her dresses -- in 1993, she took her goods to craft fairs and earned a modest living selling the dresses. Jonelle says, "I wanted my own store because I felt like I couldn't set the atmosphere I wanted at a craft fair." She used tax-return money and ran up credit cards so she could finally open a mall kiosk. She began creating the atmosphere that would soon become her trademark. In 1995, Jonelle opened her first full-size store in a mall and Cinnamon Girl was born.
What to buy: THIS STORE HAS A LOT OF GOOD SMELLING ITEMS WHICH KEEPS YOU LOOKING BECAUSE YOU LIKE THE ATMOSPHERE..!!! GOOD PLACE TO SHOP!!! As you enter the doors of each Cinnamon Girl store across the Hawaiian Islands -- there are six stores altogether -- the smell of warm cinnamon greets you. All of the dresses -- in matching mother-daughter style -- are designed by Jonelle. There are homey fixtures in the stores and wooden floors. There's even a suggestion box so Jonelle can keep up with what her customers want. She says: "What makes Cinnamon Girl special is we set an atmosphere that women feel comfortable in. It's the warm lighting.
What to pay: THIS CAN BE A FEW DOLLARS FOR SOME GUM OR CANDY TO SHOPPING FOR CLOTHING...WHICH CAN ADD UP~!!!
