We couldn’t be MORE EXCITED to announce our new space at the creative, collaborative Pineapple Patio conveniently located in Honolulu. We will keep you updated on our events and new opportunities for you to be gifting with aloha, but in the meantime, here is an introduction to our space and how to find us when you stop by for a visit.

Hi friends! Over this past year, we’ve kept our Instagram and blog strictly business, BUT we’ve decided to change things up.
