Hilo Hattie's began a long time ago, in of course, Hilo. She was a most wonderful lady and entertainer, who I've met, many years ago. The store in Lihue is nice. It's really, a stop to shop place!

I wish I had found this store earlier. They have a large selection of Hawaiian shirts and dresses. I thought their t-shirt prices were good too compared to some I saw at other stores. You can get knick knacks for your friends back home too.

I had read about the pearl experience that awaits the customer who is entering Hilo Hattie's, and so was somewhat prepared. I must say the saleswoman was persistent, but she finally let me go when I told her I had come in for other gifts...More

Easy access from the main road going toward the Nirth Shore of Kauai out of Lihue. They have a large parking lot. When you enter they place a shell lei over your beck and they have delicious chocolates to taste. This is a very large...More
