Shop local. I know we say it a lot, but look–this is important. Make the sweetest memories this holiday with locally sourced, hand-crafted goods, bought at locally owned shops. It’s good for our island, supports our local economy and keeps our dollars here. Our local Maui artisans are very creative from upcycling materials to keeping everything organically derived and environmentally viable. Nobody loves this land more than the folks who reside here.
Whatever stuff you’re looking for to put under the tree, in your stockings or on your holiday dinner table, keep it local. Scour the arts and crafts fairs, shop at local gallery shops and boutiques, hit up the farmers markets and ask for Maui-made goods wherever you shop. We’ve compiled this handy shopping guide to make it easy. Mele Kalikimaka from MauiTime!
