Hot New Stores

These aren't average shops and they don't cater to average shoppers. These stores are for the shopper on a mission, welcoming big-bellied moms-to-be, mixed martial arts enthusiasts, artsy decorators and anyone gifting these people.


Hot Mama Maternity

3435 Waialae Ave.,

Suite 106A


Women who want to be happy during their pregnancy in comfortable, stylish clothing can choose between $30 tank tops and $150 designer items, such as pregnancy-ready jeans—and everything in between. The store is filled with fashionable, comfy clothing, skincare products and books full of advice. You’ll find bags and accessories so hip, you’ll want them even if you’re not pregnant.

Fighter's Corner

405 N. King St.


The first ever store for kick-boxers, grapplers, jujitsu experts and fans of mixed martial arts has opened just outside Chinatown. It’s a little tricky to find, but if you’re heading Diamond Head on N. King Street, take a right just after passing the storefront, located in the Tong Fat Building. Inside you’ll find headgear, training equipment, gloves and Thai pads from national and local companies. And, for the nonparticipating lovers of the sport, find various T-shirts, shorts and DVDs.


40 N. Hotel St.


Welcome all bon vivants and urbane wits seeking stylish home accessories. INTO is surprisingly affordable, a bar towel is $7.50 and a bamboo/wicker folding chair with leather arm strap is $150. The store is filled with throw pillows, travel candles (in yummy scents like fig or Champagne), soap, lamps, specialty books, jewelry and rugs.

Welcome to the Islands

Ward Centre

1200 Ala Moana Blvd.


The selection of Island-inspired bath and body products, jams and jellies, hand-blown glassware and home decorating items will attract artsy glassware aficionados and anyone in search of an Island-style gift to send to the Mainland. Gift ideas range from $3 for jams and jellies or up to $100 for a piece of etched glassware.


1142 Bethel St.


Downtowners who need a little spice in their living space can stop in for hand-knotted rugs, made to design, locally crafted jewelry and accessories, hand-blown glass and other gift ideas. Decorate the floors in your home with rugs, ranging from about $180 to $3,500.
