Vintage Hawaiiana store Tin Can Mailman made Oahu collectors smile when it relocated here from Kauai last November. Run by Christopher Oswalt and Raul Sanchez, the new location on Nuuanu Avenue has been carefully composed as an homage to the tightly packed general stores of yesteryear. Tin Can Mailman is known for the quality and selection of its ephemera, such as old menus, sheet music, calendars, postcards and pinups. You can also browse vintage books about Hawaii and the Pacific, shop for aloha shirts and find the perfect 1950s lamp or 1960s cocktail shaker set. And don’t miss the Lucite, Bakelite and ivory jewelry. 1026 Nuuanu Ave., 524-3009, tincanmailman.net
