International Marketplace sits on historic ground

If you’re strolling through Waikiki, it’s nearly impossible to walk past its heart and not hear it beating. No matter what time of day, tourists and locals alike flow through the International Marketplace pumping the life blood of the economy into its many shops and kiosks. It’s a must stop for last-minute-souvenir seekers and bargain hunters. Authentic Hawaiian CDs, fresh, handmade Plumeria leis, and 9-for-$20 t-shirts are just some of the reasons thousands of visitors and savvy local shoppers each year make their way through the Marketplace’s maze of shops.

 

 

Marketplace renovation to benefit Queen Emma Foundation

Deborah Chavis, 23, drinks her coffee and stares out at all the people walking by the small shop her mother owns inside the International Marketplace. Paradise Music Store has been a fixture in the Marketplace for many years and offers up a diverse collection of Hawaiian and local music. Sounds of Bruddah Iz fill the air of the Marketplace as tourists often come up and ask for recommendations for a good CD or stop and stare at the Wind Devas, which she also sells, pieces of twisted, shimmering plexiglass that twirl in even the slightest wind gust.
