During the day on Saturday March 19th, consider hitting The Maui Crafts Guild’s exhibit featuring Wendy Hagedorn. The exhibition entitled “Oceans Treasures” and showcases handcrafted jewelry created from hand-collected Hawaiian shells, sea-glass, sea-pottery and other gifts found below the surface of the ocean. Probably some nice gift ideas here, and certainly good window shopping.
Come nighttime Join the Maui Tribe at The Studio Maui off Haiku Road and celebrate Spring Equinox 2011 with a night of traditional music and dance to help usher in the changing of the seasons. The Maui Tribe is known for its traditional dance and should put on a good show. $20 at the door, $15 pre-sale.
Then on Sunday morning, head over to Green Dragon Farmers Market and Craft Fair in the Kahului Shopping Center over in central Maui for fresh local produce and crafts. Though open from 7am to 7pm, it’s best to arrive early to have the best chance at the best selection of produce and crafts. These types of markets give you a good chance to rub shoulders with the locals, get some healthy food after eating out as we often do on vacation, and support the local economy.
All in all, a good, mellow way to have a happy and mellow Spring Break in Maui, keeping it local, keeping it authentic.
