Kapa Bead Bracelets – Sonny Ching Collection


Paradisus at Merrie Monarch!

It’s that time again! Paradisus will be at the Merrie Monarch Festival, this year in a “pop-up” storefront called Kūikawā Boutique. This year we will be on Kamehameha Avenue in Hilo town! There will be lots of fun and exciting things so be sure to come by.

There will be new items in the Sonny Ching Collection, designed with our Kumu Hula collaborator Sonny Ching. Moving into rings and jade, some of the new items are limited editions so be the first to see the latest.

Joining Paradisus and the Sonny Ching Collection, will be Kealopiko, Indigenous Soap Company, Saffron Perfume Company, Sleep Under the Stars, Meleana and Kuliana. All vendors from Hawaii.

Part of the proceeds will be donated to the Hawaiian language immersion education program.

Sunday at Japonica

Thank you everyone for joining us at Japonica. It was great meeting all the committed members and friends of the Pacific Asian American Women Bay Area Coalition. Yummy foods, lots of eye candy and the introduction of Paradisus Silver Jewelry to new buyers and old friends made it a fun afternoon at Japonica.

If you haven’t been to Japonica, you MUST stop by. If you’ve forgotten a special event, need a hostess gift, need a card or just a great cup of coffee, this is the place to get it. It’s got great gifts selected with great taste that will make anyone happy and that includes flowers.

Thank you, Val and PAAWBAC!!!
