    Ferrari: Vroom...Vroom

    by cjg1 Updated Jun 8, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Being a huge Formula One fan and a supporter of Ferrari; I just had to go in this store. They have an assortment of Ferrari themed merchandise from hats, shirts, watches, bags, jackets, etc. Basically anything a Ferrari enthusiast could want minus the actual car itself. And tehy do have a Formula One car model on display; by the way it is the ONLY thing they will allow you to take pictures of in the store for some odd reason.

    What to buy: I already have some Ferrari items from Italy and Monaco and didn't see anything new that caught my eye in this store.

    Raging Isle Surf and Cycle: North Shore Surf Shop

    by VeronicaG Updated Jul 15, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Raging Isle is a surfer's dream, located within a shopping area called North Shore Marketplace.

    Handmade surf boards in colorful graphic designs, skateboards and bicycles plus surfer fashions and accessories could be purchased here, as well. Clothing by Element, Hurley, Billibong, Speedo and others filled the racks.

    I was looking for a roomy tote to replace one which was falling apart at the seams, After pricing some in several of the stores here, I decided on a brown woven straw bag of generous size for $32 (pic #2).

    Global Creations & Interiors: Gifts and Tokens of Hawaii

    by VeronicaG Updated Jul 15, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After enjoying a frosty ice cone at Matsumato's, I discovered Global Creations & Interiors right next door.

    Stopping by to search for some vividly colored beach towels in Hawaiian design, I was thrilled to find two I liked. After choosing from several different patterns, I arranged to have them shipped to the U.S. (I believe they were priced around $28 each--see pic #3).

    Posters of Hawaiian sights, water colors of the island, scented candles, soaps and colognes were nicely arranged throughout the store. I found Plumeria-scented cologne that I purchased and carried home in my tote bag--a pleasant reminder of my visit to this tropical paradise!

    The shopkeeper couldn't have been nicer and I departed content with my purchases!

    What to pay: It cost $12.95 total to ship two beach towels from Hawaii to Texas--which I thought reasonable!

    Seamaids Beach Boutique: Snorkel gear and more

    by BLewJay Written Jun 3, 2005

    As I mentioned in my "Off the beaten path" tip, we found a great place to snorkel on the north shore...Shark's Cove. Since neither of us had snorkel gear, we had to find a place where we could rent masks, fins and snorkels. As luck would have it, the Beach Boutique was located right acoss the street from Pupukea Beach Park.

    What to buy: You can buy gear if you want to, but we rented masks, fins and snorkels.

    What to pay: $10.00 for the entire package

    Ron Artis Art Studio: Bring home a piece of Oahu - Artis' board art

    by tracynew72 Updated Dec 24, 2004

    Good for the island - good for the soul

    Besides the obvious beauty of Ron Artis' artwork, the warmth of the family will make your time in Haleiwa most memorable.
    If you are lucky enough to expereince a live Jazz jam session, you will know what I am talking about!

    Rons artwork is not only pleasing to the eye, but also a great way to help the island keep landfills free of broken surfboards.

    So if you surf Northshore and you break your board, PLEASE drop by and give it to Ron - your casualty is guaranteed to turn heads, and may end up in a happy home someday!

    What to buy: Surfboard art and music

    What to pay: please be mindful & aware of the love that went into this artwork... pay a fair price and be happy knowing that you are helping the island and the Artis family.
