The relaxing sound of waves hitting shore. Surfing, sail- ing, and snorkeling. Blend these elements together and you have a dream vacation. But what about those vaca- tioners who don't surf, sail, or snorkel? Honolulu and the Waikiki Beach areas have everything enthusias- tic shoppers dream about, and then some. The big hotels have their own mini shopping cen- ter, but those shops usually carry only high-ticket items. Shopping malls and individ- ual stores fill in the space between hotels and restau- rants. ABC Stores appear everywhere. Some are rather small and crowded, and others are spacious, but shoppers can find everything from shirts and dresses to gifts to staples such as milk and juice. ABC Stores take convenience stores to an entirely new level. Hilo Hattie is adver- tised as THE place to go for souvenirs and anything related to Hawaii. One of our friends called it The Wal Mart of Hawaii. Convention-goers got acquainted with the store because Hilo Hattie was one of the most popular vendors in the huge trade show. Hawaiian-style shirts and dresses in all sizes and col- ors were snatched up by peo- ple eager to take a remem- brance of Hawaii home with them. Since my husband Dave was in a delegate session one da); I had a day to window shop on my own. Hilo Hattie's free shopping shut- tle was the perfect trans- portation, o I didn't have to fight traffic, and the driver never ran out of interesting bits of triviato entertain his Shopping is a really different experience in the Hawaiian Islands. riders. The shuttle made twelve stops along a route past hotels, restaurants, and shopping centers. The main destination, of course, was the flagship Hilo Hattie store. If an item was made or grown in Hawaii, it was in Hilo Hattie's. I felt like a small child visiting a toy store for the first time. Where do I start? How can I make sure that I don't miss anything? Oh, my, I'll never have enough money! After two hours of browsing, I did- n't leave the store burdened down with packages, but I wasn't empty-handed, either. I couldn't resist buy- ing some Hawaiian coffee, especially after tasting a couple free samples. I couldn't pass up Hawaiian print napkins and paper plates on a half-price table, but I was able to resist the persistent sales person who tried to sell me the beautiful coral ring she saw me admir- ing. Since I had no sched- ule to keep, I decided to do some comparison shopping for rings at the outdoor International Market Place. Wow! Those vendors were quite the high-pressure salespeople. One played on my sympathies by saying she needed her first sale since lunch. She was deter- mined to catch mc on her line, but I finally wriggled away. The next gal was even more persistent. When she realized that I did- n't have a credit card or check book with me, she asked how much cash I had. I hesitantly told her a round number, but that didn't sat- isfy her. She asked me to show her my moneyl I refused and said that I want- ed my husband to help me pick out a ring. Then she wanted me to make a down payment, bring Dave back later, show my receipt, and I would get my ring. No sale. A popular place to shop on Wednesdays and Saturdays is the Swap Meet at the Aloha Stadium. Many Vendors sell merchan- dise ' similar to the International Market Place or Hilo Hattie, but this huge street market that encircles the stadium is a bargainer- hunter's paradise. Bartering with the vendor of'ten results in even cheaper prices. Our time was limited because we had to return our rental car at noon, but l was able to get a coral ring that I treasure as a souvenir of my trip to Hawaii. Dave treas- ures it even more than I do, because the first ring I saw at Hilo Hattie cost ten times more than the one 1 now wear. The service people hotel workers, clerks, restaurant workers, tour guides--are some of the friendliest people I have met any place 1 have visited. They seem genuinely happy to have us visit their island, and they are more than happy to talk about their island paradise. The savvy shopper must exercise strong will power, however, when coming face-to-face with experienced sales peo- ple.
