About Na Mea Hawaii:
Neatly located under the Old Spaghetti Factory at the end of Ward Warehouse, Ne Mea is a little gem of a find for those enjoying some Shopping in Waikiki. Despite being a multi-faceted store selling everything from original island artworks to pretty shell jewelry, Ne Mea is perhaps most well-known for its extensive and eclectic collection of Hawaiian history and language books.
The place comes across more like a classic community workshop than a store, but that is one of the things that make it so popular. It is typically buzzing with activity, and there is always something fun happening.
The Sangria & Paint Party is held every third Saturday of the month, and is one of the most popular of the store’s Events. For $35 you can enjoy an evening of sangria, light pupas, and the opportunity to create and take home a piece of art.
Locally owned and operated by a team with a genuine love for what they do, the staff will go out of their way to help you – even if it means directing you to another store. Na Mea Hawaii supports and promotes smaller and lesser-known local artists. This gives the local artists a chance to show and sell their work. Community spirit and local values are what this place is all about.
During your next visit to the Island, enjoy an Oahu shopping experience or a night of fun at Na Mea Hawaii.
