    There is an outdoor market at the football stadium parking lot in Honolulu. It's huge! Great buys. Bought extra luggage to bring my treasures home. It is 2 or 3 days a week.

    Another one I like to visit is Kaimuki Dry Goods at 1144 10th Avenue and is only a couple of blocks from The Calico Cat (another one of my favorites).

    When I was there many years ago, one of the high points
    of our visit was to the cultural center that showed all the different islands' dress, foods and some of their different canoes. And we had a feast there to test some of the island foods. Discovered that I did not like Poi, but do love Taro root as a pretty plant. Went to a really interesting tropical plant test
    area, lots of strange and delicious plants and trees there.

    The shopping area is lovely, and when I Goggled it this came up.

    Oh yes...YOU HAVE TO GO TO KAIMUKI DRY GOODS!! That's my ALL TIME favorite place! They have a sale table that usually has some nice stuff on it. Also, over near the register is a 3 or 4 shelf little bin. In it are fabrics, maybe 12x12 inches, some smaller, some bigger. Nice pieces that are only a few dollars. They are plastic envelopes with maybe 5 or 6 pieces in them.

    Calico Cat is a nice place, but the hours are strange at times and parking is almost non existant. There's also the place on King Street, Kuni Island Fabric. They are right next to a Flower Shop. Cute place and the lady that's usually in there is really nice.

    When it comes to Fabric Mart, I usually went to the one in Aiea. I liked the people in there better.
    The other Fabric Mart is on Kalakaua Ave.
    There's also a quilt shop, The Quilt Hut that is in the same area as Fabric Mart in Aiea, but I found the people in there to NOT be nice and their fabric was WAAAY overpriced. I could order the same fabric online and pay less including the shipping with what they were selling their stuff for.

    Oh dear! I can see this happening! LOL. I would have to ship it home as it would probably be cheaper than the extra fees at the airline!

    Topstitch Quilt store is located on the Big Island.

    I like Kuni Island Fabrics in Honolulu. They are on S. King Street.

    Ditto to everything, especially The Quilt Hut.....
