Forget about getting a bargain on pineapple. The prices on Kauai are no different from those on the mainland. And the shipping costs will eat you alive.
And the Oki Pancake House proclaims itself as "The Home of World-Famous Oki Pancakes." I'm not exactly sure why, as IHOP or any one of a thousand other breakfast houses can do them just as well.

I always look for the creations: jewelry by artists who design unique necklaces, earrings, rings, etc. I especially liked the fact that I was able to browse without being pressured by vendors. Therefore, I could walk around and look and touch and "find" the perfect necklace!
There were also wood bowls, beautiful candles, paintings, etc., but since I wasn’t interested in buying anything other than jewelry, I only quickly perused those things. In a quick glance, I think shoppers interested in that kind of stuff would be very happy with the Kauai Fair.
See for more information.
We also stopped at Hilo Hatties since Bob wanted to buy a couple more Hawaiian shirts to accompany the one he had already bought on the Big Island. There are racks and racks of shirts of all styles and different types of fabric. You can get a good-quality man’s shirt for $30. And, of course, while Bob was checking out the shirts, I was checking out the jewelry. I found two pairs of very unique wood earrings (designed in Hawaii but made in Philippines) that were perfect. I did have a problem with one pair (the post fell off but I used superglue and re-attached it). I didn’t look at too many of the women’s fashions but it didn’t appear that there were too many T-shirts or bathing suits for sale, which is what I might have been interested in.
The store was quite close to our condo and, in fact, provided free shuttle service from our condo to the store! You can buy via the web but the items offered online are only a small portion of what's available at the store itself.
One comment: if you intend to shop at Hilo Hattie, do so early in your stay, since a purchase at Hilo Hattie entitles you to a variety of discounts.
