Whether you're visiting Kauai for the first time or are fortunate to call this beautiful island your permanent home, shopping locally and exploring unique establishments is a must. One of our favorite collections of specialty shops is Warehouse 3540 located on Kauai's South Shore. Custom art, handmade jewelry, local plants and so much more can be found within this open-air warehouse.  Here are just a few of the special boutiques that call Warehouse 3540 home. 

 

Kind Koffee

Start your shopping excursion with a morning cup of coffee at this hip food truck.  Try an Aloha Latte created with coconut and macadamia nut syrup. It's heaven in a cup!  If you are not a coffee drinker, the Hibiscus Lilikoi Lemonade is a delicious refresher to take with you while shopping.  Pair your drink with homemade avocado toast or an organic bagel and you are set for the morning.

 

Hanako

Located in the heart of Warehouse 3540, Hanako has something for everyone.  You can purchase prints from a number of local Hawaiian Artists.  Troy Carney and Punky Aloha are just two of the talented artists spotlighted in Hanako.  Need a new bag for the beach?  They have you covered with many practical yet still fashionable options including the popular Aloha Bag Collection.  Lastly, bring home handmade jewelry featuring a Tahitian Pearl.  Each one is hand-selected by the owner to create a unique statement piece for your collection.

 

Sugar Skull

Satisfy your sweet tooth with a piece of art on a plate. Considered one of Kauai's best cake designers, Sugar Skull offers edible delights that will leave you craving more.  Their mouth-watering treats rotate weekly and include creme brulee, brownies, tarts, and scones.  While selecting the perfect homemade dessert, you can also shop for fun local items such as stickers, baking supplies, and cookie-themed blankets. 

 

The Local Beet

Looking for a healthier food option?  The Local Beet is the place for you then! This popular shop recently relocated to the back of Warehouse 3540 after outgrowing their original space.  The boutique grocery store offers seasonal local produce and fruits, locally made products, grab ‘n’ go, and many vegan options. They even offer organically grown non-GMO plants to get your Kauai garden started.

 

Refill Kauai

Make the transition to a more sustainable lifestyle by visiting this forward-thinking shop. Essential cleaning and body care products are offered at Kauai's first refill station. Purchase a glass bottle and refill as needed or bring your own container and simply pay by the ounce. We have a shared kuleana (responsibility) to reduce waste and take care of the island. 

 

Robin McCoy Fine Arts

While strolling from store to store, you will notice beautiful paintings hanging on the walls created by well-known local artist Robin McCoy.  If you venture next to Kind Coffee and behind Sugar Skull you will find her studio, along with more treasures available to complete your home décor. Robin's art features vibrant flowers, sunlit ocean views, and Hawaiian-styled plantation homes.  Each piece evokes a sense of home, peacefulness, and aloha.  

 

Drift Micro-Bar

After your shopping trip, take the time to rest and enjoy a beverage at the newest addition to Warehouse 3540. Located in the back, Drift Micro-Bar is the perfect place to relax and hang out with friends as the sun goes down for the day. Original top-shelf craft cocktails, draft beer, wine, and pupu (appetizer) options can all be found on Drift’s menu.

 

Warehouse 3540 has many more treasures you can uncover during your visit including a community lending library.  Bring a book to share and take a new one home to enjoy. Each and every space in the warehouse has its own character and embodies the idea of sharing local talent and products.  Want to have the ability to shop here every day?  Contact Susan Higgins to find the perfect Kauai homes for sale on the South Shore.
