Alii Antiques I & II
Charles Yee Hoy and staff have been selling antiques at a pair of shops in downtown Kailua for over 25 years. Their first store draws from the mainland and around the globe, and the spinoff around the corner sticks to Hawaii. Finds might include leis made with tiny pink kahelelani shells, or possibly white momi shell earrings. Their jam-packed shelves and walls also host paintings polished koa wood bowls, colorful porcelain vases, hula dancer statuettes and currency from before Hawaii became the U.S.’s 50th state.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
