Excellent offerings of local artistic works

This is not a standard souvenir place, but great if you are looking for a work of art from Hawaii. They do have smaller items (we bought a book).

We stopped here on the way to Volcano National Park. Very nice selection of arts and crafts by local artists. The staff is welcoming. Would be nice to time a visit when you are hungry; we didn't try the cafe.

While visiting the volcano, my wife and daughter wanted to go here, so we did. There are some very interesting art work, glass blown items, wood and metal works all for sale. Both my wife and daughter purchased items here. Check it out!

This was a nice shop to stop in that we found when we were having lunch in Cafe Ono. It's worthy of a stop of its own, though, because the breadth of items available is attractive and they all appear to be good quality. I saw different types of jewelry, books, household items, and I picked up some gardenia soaps... More

This is a terrific gallery with a large number, and wide variety, of items available. We spent some time browsing, and subsequently purchasing, and enjoyed a very tasty lunch as well

Worth while stopping. Great variety in pieces, & prices as well. Some items they will pack in bubble wrap. Only local artists are allowed to sell here, so you won't find it anywhere else.

There is something for everyone at Volcano Garden Arts - from the practical to the artsy to the whimsical. Make sure to chat with owner Ira Ono so that he can fill you in on all the details about what's in his shop. Oh, and bring a larger suitcase for your return to the mainland!
