Default Fessing up, Visits to Hilo Hatties

Now how many of you guys/gals visited all the Hilo Hatties on all Islands. Inventory: 2 in Honolulu, 1 in Kauia, 1 in Lahania, 1 in Hano, 1 in Hilo.

Helen made 5 of them. Bought TOO much.

I've only been to the one in Lahania. Bought myself a beautiful lei and couldn't find a muumuu short enough :o( (too big a waiting line for the seamstress) Capt Ron was VERY happy when we left (after two hours) with less than $10 spent.

One in Lahaina, one on Hilo (after a visit to WalMart).

I believe that 'Helen" is merely another word for "shopper".

I friend of my daughter's who lives in Hawaii just e-mailed me yesterday and said NOT to miss the flea market at the Aloha Stadium as they have the best prices on touristy stuff. Anyone bother going there or hear anything about it?

Only hit the one in Honolulu and didn't spend a cent!!!.......now do we want to talk about the ABC Stores?.......that's a different matter.........I think we hit 'em all.......!!! For the uninitated, the ABC Stores are part liquor/part sundries/part tourist junk and they are on EVERY corner on ALL islands.....REALLY, they ARE!!!

We only stopped in the one on Kauai had to spend the money I saved on the cancelled helicopter tour. But I did stop at every Wal-Mart on each island. <G>

Mrs. Kuki (whom I prefer to call "Geela") got an AbFab dress at the flea market for almost no monies.

Queeg is happy that I did not find out about it until too late.

the ABC stores are a hoot. They are EVERYWHERE. On a one-hour drive to a location that would have been a 10-minute walk, six of us amused ourselves (we are easy to entertain) by counting ABC stores and wondering how much it would cost to buy the franchise.

I am still trying to figure out WHY I bought a Ukulele at Hilo Hatties in Kauai. All I can think of it was a DUMB idea. Can't tune it, can't play it, don't know what to do with it so what'll I do. Sell to anyone for $50 bucks. Any takers?

I made it to 3, and only made a purchase in one. I did visit 4 Wal-Marts and 2 K-marts.
Taking the free shuttls gives you some idea of where stuff is located around the towns.

Just the one in Maui and we actually didn't see anything we wanted that wasn't available elsewhere, mostly at a better price. I must confess that we did visit two Walmarts and bought a lot of Kona coffee there as well as some other do-dads. Same stuff, brand and all but half the price in the tourist stores.

The ABC stores motto: Always Bring Cash!!!!!!!!! Are they only in the islands??
They have been on almost every street corner since our 1st trip there in 1988.
Their stock must be worth billions by now.

Let's see... Nimitz Blvd in Honolulu, Lahaina and Hilo. 3 dresses and 2 shirts, and some miscelaneous gifts. One of my dresses appears in Ray's photo gallery of the ugly aloha shirt contest. I also scored pamda's free mug for her!

Thanks, Jenn ...

If I had only known, I would NOT have parted with the $5 to buy one for Mgram. She made me promise that I would bring her a Hilo Hattie's mug. Just like CA required a particular Aloha shirt. They were, of course, lying through their choppers. And it was a requirement to bust on her for keeping the secret.

My Hilo Hattie's purchases were two Christmas tree ornaments, the stuff to make the head wreath I wore to the luau, some ginger candy so I could play nurse to the seasick if required, and one cheap ($19) muumuu. I figured the muumuu was a good buy when the Hawaiian lady at the port inspecting bags looked at it and said, "Oooo. Nice pattern!"

CA did not get his Aloha shirt, though I offered him one that I thought was plenty ugly.

In misguided retribution, he gave Queeg the animal shirt.

Just don't understand that other twin.

We went to only 1, in Hilo, after seeing rain and deciding I wasn't going to get as wet as I did in Kuaui. Cancelled the rent a car to go to Volcano Park, and just a quick shopping trip instead.

Certainly got those island stops backwards in the decision making process.
