Catching the Honokaa Trading Company during “open” hours is a little hit-or-miss these days. Grace, a respected elder of the Honokaa community, has put her time in the old shop and can be forgiven for easing up a bit on her work. She has been selling her curiosities, aloha shirts, and antiques for years from an unassuming storefront that belies a rustic warehouse filled with as much history as sellable items. Beyond the electic mix of goods, if you’re patient to stick around, you will find out a bit about Grace’s life and perspective on Hawaiian culture. The value of her lessons is much higher than any cash you will spend in her shop.
