The only regret anybody has at Hilo Hattie’s flagship factory store is that he or she didn’t get there sooner. That, and maybe you might come home with one bikini too many. An iconic shopping adventure, this made-in-Hawaii experience — right before your very eyes by muumuu-clad women at sewing machines — remains an island institution. Low prices and high-quality goods, from Aloha shirts to island crafts, even lure locals. There’s also a free shuttle for the 10-minute ride from Waikiki.
