May Day Aloha Thrives at Pearl City Shopping Center’s 808 Craft & Gift Fair |

I would like to thank Lauren Ushijima Mori, owner of 808 Craft & Gift Fairs, for an amazing event Sunday at Pearl City Mall that brought together a group of amazing vendors, our wonderful Pearl City community and their Ohana, and visitors to our community for enjoy May 1, 2022 together.

808 Craft & Gift Fairs and Pearl City Shopping have relaunched their partnership after a long hiatus during the COVID-19 pandemic. 808 Craft & Gift Fairs will be held on the first Sunday of each month on two different levels at the Pearl City Shopping Center across from the House of Dragon restaurant (lower level) and near Bank of Hawaii (upper level).

Sunday’s 808 Craft & Gift Fair has launched a new fundraising project for their monthly events at the Pearl City Mall that provides free tent space to schools in the Pearl City complex and community youth sports programs to support them. help raise funds for school programs, competition travel costs, etc. as well as for youth sports teams traveling to tournaments on neighboring islands, on the mainland and abroad.

Mahalo to everyone who supported Sunday’s Hawaii Rush 17 girls team fundraiser who featured goodies for sale to help raise funds for tournament travel expenses to attend the summer regionals of Idaho.

I had a great time reuniting with friends and meeting new friends among sellers and buyers. I purchased a beautiful painting titled “The Guardian of Banzai Pipeline” by North Shore artist Monika Kupiec which featured her beautiful paintings by Monika Kupiec Art. There were so many crafts, specialty goods and awesome food vendors to delight shoppers and visitors to the 808 Craft and Gift Fairs at Pearl City Mall.

Mahalo to Pearl City Mall Maintenance Manager Ken Williams and his team for helping the event run smoothly from start to finish.

Mahalo Laurent!

Looking forward to June’s 808 Craft & Gift Fair!
