    My little family loved this tour! The tour guide was absolutely wonderful, and she had so much knowledge of the history of the palace. Highly recommend, especially if you are interested in the Hawaiian Royals and Hawaiian history/culture and artifacts.

    We walked by Nana's on a couple trips but never went in, because we thought such beautiful art had to be very expensive and would be more then we wanted to pay. This trip we decided to look just for the fun of it. We were completely blown away! The owners are amazing, and the prices are very reasonable especially for such beautiful craftsmanship. We went back several times during our trip because we kept thinking of someone else that would enjoy having something from here. They also have very reasonable shipping if you don't want to pack or carry things on the airplane.

    I just had to have it! I always try to shop locally and buy only in our community. The souvenirs are usually really good artwork and friendly people! Rarely do you find any questionable items. I love these gorgeous flowers, these are some of my beautiful memories.

    We didn’t buy anything but enjoyed looking at the collection. There is such a variety on display -- paintings, prints, photographs, drawings, sculptures (of wood, metal, glass) and much more.

    Gorgeous original oil paintings of some of the Big Island's most wonderful spots: from identifiable landmark vistas to secret coastal gems. We were pleasantly surprised at the prices - pretty reasonable for original artwork. We purchased a beautiful landscape of a stunning beach - a lasting reminder of our trip to this amazing island.

    The quilts here are jaw-droppingly beautiful. All worked by hand with backings as beautiful as the fronts. A display of kona cloth also provides the history and process used to create the cloth.

    Ernest Young, Jr. is a talented artist whom we have come to love as a man and artist. His underwater scenes are spectacular, looking almost like a photo of the colorful Hawaiian fish and turtles swimming in the coral reefs. We have several of his paintings hanging in our home. His landscapes that include the beautiful flowers of Hawaii as well as the Mt. Kilauea volcanic activity are awesome. He is often seen sitting outside the gallery working on a new painting. His wife, Elizabeth, is a gracious hostess in the gallery, very knowledgeable in the work of her husband.

    Books of ideas, but you can have them do your own idea too. very reasonable prices for temporary tattoos. Cute souvenir while in Hawaii. Friendly and quick service. You can return for darkening if it seems to fade too quickly. Sometimes an extra charge for this depending.
