The new shop at Spalding House in Makiki Heights isn’t just one store—expect a series of seasonal pop-ups. Right now, in time for Valentine’s Day, it’s the RED SHOP, with a slew of great gifts for that special person, whether it’s your partner, mom, bff, Auntie Shirley, your office husband (or wife)—or yourself! (You know what they say—you can’t love someone until you love yourself). And remember—it’s a pop-up shop, so once these items are gone, they’re gone. Get ’em while they’re red hot! Information: 532-8786. Open Tuesday to Sunday.
Wear your heart on your bag with this Seltzer Goods roomy tote ($29.95) and zipped pouch ($14.95).
Have your tea (or coffee) for two with these supercute “kissing” cups ($34.95) from Japanese ceramic tableware design line Sun Art. As Sun Art says on its website, “The surprise and laughter must get up to the average of the life of every day.”
These heart-shaped measuring spoons ($8.95) by Blanc & Reed are perfect for that person you know who bakes with lurve. Also available are heart-shaped measuring cups ($10.95).
For the wildlife-loving person in your life, try this red rhino eraser ($10.95) from Kikkerland Design. Not only will it get rid of pesky pencil errors, it will hopefully keep endangered creatures top of mind. Two percent of sales of the red rhino go to the Center for Biological Diversity based in Arizona.
Next pop-up theme: The Bunny Shop! Opens in March.
