Fortune Hunter 

Searching out new territory, tracking your targets, stalking the prey. Yes, shopping can feel a lot like hunting, even if you’re only on the prowl for an everyday handbag.

And it’s even harder when fertile grounds like small independent boutiques seem to be closing up every day.

Which is why it’s such good news that the tiny MisFortune boutique at Ward Centre just reopened yesterday. It has new owners and new inventory, but the name and the idea are the same.

Only as big as a walk-in closet, the shop is filled with cool finds. On the racks and shelves you’ll find clothes from hard-to-find labels like the French line Promod, and cute jewelry from lines like Gorjana. New owners Steven and Izumi Naszvadi have much more stuff on the way too, all of it at price points that won’t give you sticker shock.

Talk about a deal of fortune.

MisFortune boutique, Ward Centre (Ewa end, across from Brookstone). Contact for more info.
