In Hawaii, and Hawaii only, well, in Las Vegas now too for some reason there is a shop called ABC store, -the store with Aloha. And I love love love them. Waikiki has one on every corner and they are filled with handy things, and of course, alot of tourist tat, and that’s why they always are pretty packed.
They sell so much good stuff that I love so as soon as I came back here I’ve been in them everyday.
Great selection of postcards and calendars
Nice organic beauty products such as Burts bee’s, which I love love love.
And good selection of the infamous and cheap Island Girl Nail polish, of which I am a fan. Happened to buy myself four more colours the other day.
Hawaiian wear, touristy and cheap versions of the more traditional ones.
Alot of fun gifts, such as these Hawaiian condoms, which I happened to buy for one of my housemates back in LA. (The Pineapple power one, in Orange, if you wondered)
Lovely Hawaiian water, way better than any of the shit you can by in Los Angeles or Orlando.
And much much more. It’s so good because they are everywhere in Waikiki, and if you’re going to the beach they’ve got everything you need. Sandwhiches, cheap bottles of water, beach mats, really cheap floaties, flip flops, towels and all sorts.
So look out for them, if you’re in Hawaii, and if you’re in Waikiki, you won’t need to, they’ll be EVERYWHERE.
This one has a gym over it. Handy. Not that I would ever want to sit on an excercycle right by the beach and look over the sea. You’d more likely catch me in the store buying a nice cold can of Coca Cola in my beach wear on my way to lazy ass it aaaaaall day.
