We're just a little family, home-based business on an island in the middle of the sea. We've been creating handmade Hawaiian print nursery items since 1981. We got our start at craft fairs, trade shows and flea markets and opened our first store in the mid 80s on Kainehe Street, across the street from the The Source Natural Foods. In 1996 we moved a couple blocks over to the Kailua Shopping Center. On November 30, 2015 and after 19 years in the K.S.C. we closed our little shop. Though bittersweet as we miss interacting with our customers, we are excited for the change which allows us to once again work from home and affords us more time to focus on our wholesale and online sale ventures.
We take great pride in the quality of our products, they are not mass produced. We personally make all of our products ourselves using materials and supplies from local vendors.
It's been our pleasure over the years to watch our tiniest customers grow up and carry on the "Baby Showers" tradition with their own little ones!
Mahalo to all our customers in Hawai'i and around the world for nearly 40 years of Aloha!
