Big Island Grown is an exciting and trendy new gift shop in downtown Honokaa.This lovely storefront is located in the Andrade building and offers an enticing choice of the wonderful goods that are made and grown locally.These products consist of a diverse yet pleasing mix of hand-made jewelry, artworks, hamakua grown coffee, teas, and gourmet snacks, as well as locally produced clothing, hair and body care products.
Big Island Grown opened its doors in early October and its owners are bringing in an ever-expanding array of merchandise that is manufactured right here on the Big Island. “The local support has been amazing”, says Michelle Barthel, co-owner, “people really get excited when they learn everything in our shop was made locally. The quality and beauty of the goods that are produced here is truly amazing and the people who produce them are some of the most delightful I have ever known.”
“We would like to welcome every resident of the Big Island to come by and join us for our Grand Opening on November 16th, 17th and 18th. Many of our vendors will be coming down to sample their products and we plan to offer door prizes to the first twenty customers every day,” adds Kenneth Barthel, husband and co-owner.
