Ace Hardware Craft Fair

Perusing handcrafted work of artisans from around the island made for the perfect way to spend a rainy afternoon Nov. 5 at the Ace Hardware Holiday Craft Fair at the Kaua’i War Memorial Convention Hall in Lihu’e. Caramel apples, Hello Kitty purses, ’20s-inspired headbands and keiki craft tables were among the event’s highlights. Kaua’i-specific specialties included beach glass jewelry, batik pareos, paniolo-style Christmas stockings and vibrant silk lei.
