I have been doing the Saturday Swap Meet in Kahului off and on as it is an easy way for customers to find my products. I sell from 7am – noon and usually have a booth in the first row to the right. I always have sales on my wahine clothing! Booth #165 is where I will be tomorrow (March 25, 2023) instead of the Ho’omau event.
New Merrie Monarch Booth Location!
Everyone is getting excited for the upcoming Merrie Monarch Hula Festival and the official Merrie Monarch Arts and Craft fair on April 12-15, 2023 in Hilo.
I have a new location in the Ahfook Chinen Auditorium, booth C31, right in the middle of the room! I will be bringing my new Hula/Maile wahine tops, lots of Pillow Covers, dresses, kimono cardigans, Drink Mat sets and much more!
New Hula Design T-Shirt!
I will debut my new Hula & Maile Blockprint Art t-shirt design at the upcoming Merrie Monarch Hula Festival in Hilo! I carved the blockprint using the Maile plant as inspiration. The Maile is one of the important plants associated with Laka, the goddess of the hula. A Hawaiian hula rule proverb: Kuhi no ka lima, hele no ka maka translates to: where the hand moves, let the eyes follow.
