Details of items found in Banana Patch Studios

Mahalo to Joyce D. of Bellevue, WA for this great yelp review.

Wow, I love this little store. How can you resist the ubiquitous “Mahalo for removing your shoes” tiles? But even if you don’t care for those, this place has so many beautiful things in it – great variety of tiles, wooden bowls, straw bags, jewelry etc. Not tacky, souvenir stuff, but nice things I’d buy even if I wasn’t on vacation. The workers are friendly, they’ll ship stuff to the mainland, and there’s a corner of comfy sofas and benches outside for the non-shoppers who want to chill while you shop. Some of the things in here are quite pricey (like Niihau shell jewelry), but there are lots of little, affordable things as well.
