  • Visit the Aloha Bowl Stadium Flea Market: Searching for a Deal in Paradise?

    by turquois20 Updated Dec 16, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Aloha Bowl Stadium is the place to shop!
    It is open from 6am-3pm on Saturday, Sunday and Wednesday. The goods are the same quality as the stores, but here, they are 1/3 the price.
    If you want muumuus, jewelry, hawaiian beach towels~ they have them. It is 3 miles around and it can be quite extensive. Now if you drive in or walk in, the fee is 25 cents per person. They also give you a flea market catalogue which lists all the sellers, all their goods and who is there on what day. If you want 2nd hand items there are usually some of those too, but it's first come first served.

    What to buy: From the catalogue you have a myriad of items to choose from. For my Mom I get muumuus, for my niece a nice hawaiian blouse and dress, pupu shell necklace with a sharks tooth for my grandson, four beautiful beach towels, hair clips with hawaiian flowers on them, hawaiian tee shirts for the boys and embroideried tee shirts for the girls., kitchen magnets with Hawaiian surf boards, tiki gods, flowers, and a truly lovely handmade sign with our name wrtten in Hawaiian picture letters.

    What to pay: Muumuus can be $14, blouses $15, dresses $9, pupu shell necklace w/o shark tooth $12, with shark tooth $16, beach towels $8, hair clips $9, tee shirts 5 for $20, embroideried tees slightly more, kitchen magnets can be 8 for $10, the handmade sign costs either $3-$4 a letter, with a Frame add $10.

    various: Aloha Tower

    by joanj Updated Aug 27, 2004

    Aloha Tower Marketplace is ideal for shopping, and also for going to the top of the tower to see panoramic views around Honolulu.

    It is nice to sit out on a lanai on many of the market place oceanfront eateries and just while away the time.

    The tower was built in l926 .

    What to buy: As there are approximately 80 shops within the Aloha Tower Marketplace there are many items to purchase. There are a few restaurants here also, so you can rest, eat drink, and shop some more.

    Definately one of the things you'll notice during your stay in Waikiki are ABC Stores. These stores are literally everywhere. Don't be suprised to see 2, even 3, on the same block.

    What to buy: They sell a little bit of everything: food, souvenirs, beach equipment, etc.

    What to pay: They can be a little on the pricey side.

    Wal-Mart: Get your souvenirs here

    by Kaleisu Updated Jan 12, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Don't get ripped off. If you can buy it on the island - you can buy it at Wal-Mart. I shopped in Mililani and it was wonderful. "Locals" flip-flops were $3.67. Macademia nuts are $1.80 in a gift box. Beach towels are $7.50. Get your goods here and save a few bucks.

    What to buy: Tiki Gods, beach towels, lei's, bottle openers, coffee mugs, flip-flops, macademia nuts, coffee, aloha wear, and all of your other island needs. Buy inexpensive snorkeling sets here for $10-$20, instead of paying rental fees. Ladies, try the kid section - basic set is $10 and fit me better than the adult set.

    What to pay: Cheaper than you can buy it anywhere else on the island. And it's the same stuff.

    Crafts / Gift shops: Hilo Hattie's

    by steph4867 Written Oct 10, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hilo Hattie, the largest manufacturer of Hawaiian fashions, attracts more than a million visitors to its ever-expanding empire throughout the state. Its Ala Moana store is a leap in image, quality, range of merchandise, and overall shopping options. You can find great gifts here, from coconut utensils to food products and aloha shirts in all price ranges and motifs. There are some inexpensive silk aloha shirts as well as brand-name aloha shirts like Tommy Bahama and the store's own Hilo Hattie label.

    Ala Moana Centre

    by keeweechic Updated Sep 9, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This was the view from the Ala Moana Hotel looking down on the entire roof of the Ala Moana Shopping centre. At the time of my first visit to Honolulu, the Ala Moana was fairly new. It is still the State's largest open-air shopping centre.

    There are more than 200 stores.

  • Kona coffee

    by jmuehlbauer Written Aug 6, 2003

    When you're looking for 100% Kona to take home, look for sales at place like Long's Drug and the supermarket. You might need to sign up for one of those discount cards so annoyingly prevalent at American grocery/drug stores.

    Waikele Outlets & Shopping Center: Way out in Waikele

    by TropicGirl77 Written Jun 21, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Way out of Honolulu, past Aiea, and in Waipio / Waipahu is where you'll find the Waikele Outlet Shops and Waikele Shopping Center. A trolley takes you between the two centers. While you'll find a large make-up of tourists in the outlet mall, you'll find a greater population of locals on the other side ... no division intended! Very relaxed shopping conditions here.

    What to buy: This shopping area has all the luxuries of a large shopping center, yet placed away from the faster paced city atmosphere. Not much you can't find here.

    What to pay: Moderate (remember, you're in Hawaii) to very expensive.

    This is a mall. There are many shops here ranging from quite exclusive to the common. You'll find many places to eat and even an arcade and movie theatre. Very nice atmosphere where a lot of locals shop. Located in Aiea, just past Pearl Harbor, you can't miss Pearl Ridge Mall, especially if you know what a watercress field looks like. (see photo)

    What to buy: You can find almost everything here.

    What to pay: Moderate to expensive.
