We’re back from Quilt Market


We’re back from our very quick trip to Portland, home of Voodoo Doughnuts (worth the wait not just for the donuts but the free eclectic entertainment passing by), cool temperatures (yea to no humidity or vog), no sales tax shopping and host of this Spring’s Quilt Market.  Here’s a few finds from the show which we now have in stock.  More pictures will be posted over the next couple of days.

What’s Up with Google Maps?

We recently found out that if you type in our store name to Google Maps, it marks us at being at the edge of the Punchbowl Crater!  They are really making us hidden, so much for their sophisticated technology!!!

If you are looking for us using Google Maps, you have to type in our address, 50 S Beretania for our accurate location.  The major intersection is S Beretania and Nuuanu Ave.

If you get lost, don’t hesitate to contact us, 523-3330 and we’ll guide you here.
