Tropical Lamp & Shade Co.

Cliff Garcia (in photo at left), who runs this 64-year-old family business, often finds himself working way past closing time. His business card explains that he repairs, rewires and refinishes lamps; turns and carves wood; drills glass; polishes brass; and creates one-of-a-kind lamps from just about anything. In fact, Garcia just finished one made from a Heineken bottle and another out of a clarinet. “Whatever people want, we’ll make,” he says. As if he’s not busy enough, Garcia also owns and runs Tropical Otto Parts next door. 977 Queen St., 593-0408.





Logos Bookstore of Hawaii
When Logos Bookstore opened on Fort Street Mall 25 years ago, its bestsellers were greeting cards and general-interest books. Twelve years later it relocated to Ward Warehouse, focusing on Christian books and music. Last year, Logos (“the word” in Greek) moved into a 4,500-square-foot space on Queen Street, expanding its selection by 20 percent. “We have the full range theologically, from conservative to liberal,” says store manager Carl Ashizawa. An added bonus: The venue also hosts live entertainment for fans of praise music. 1024 Queen St., 596-8890,www.honolulu.logosbookstores.com.
