Target: I’m just posting this on Target’s opening day, March 4, 2015, so I have NO IDEA what they have in stock (or what they may be out of in a matter of days) – but I’m guessing they have all the baby basics, probably some organic options, and maybe some furniture and gear!  Target is located in Kahului/Puunene, just behind the Walmart.

Carters:  Opened in late 2013 at The Outlets of Maui in Lahaina .  According to the website, “Carter’s is the leading brand of children’s clothing, gifts and accessories in America.” – Maui Made Note: Unfortunately, as a national brand, when I visited just before Christmas, the clothes were mostly ‘seasonal’ – thick winter pajamas and long sleeves, the only bathing suits were for babies (I was looking for girls). 

Macy’s:  I forgot about this store in the original post, but the children’s Macy’s in Queen Kaahumanu Center has decent children’s clothes and a couple miscellaneous gift items – They seem to do a better job of carrying Hawaii appropriate clothing. but I don’t believe they have shoes. Luckily there are lots of shoe stores in the Mall, including Payless Shoe Source and Parade of Shoes.

Walmart – pretty much has everything here for baby:  Cribs, strollers, car seats, clothes, food, etc.  I’m pretty sure they stock nursing bras, but don’t recall if they had maternity clothes there.

Costco – Ofter have baby and kids clothes, you can usually find some cute PJ and romper sets by Carters, and swimwear.  Best place to get diapers – also carry formula.  Occasionally have things like car seats.

Sears – This is another place to check for cribs, strollers, nursery items (things like monitors, etc), baby and kids clothes.

Ross – Good place to get baby and kids clothes, though you’ll probably have to go often if you are looking for something in particular.  Seemingly always carry essentials like blankets and towels (good place to go for baby shower gifts- you can fill a whole basket and not break the bank!) They sometime carry random things (its Ross) – today they had breast pumps.  I’ve also seen car seats, umbrella strollers, etc.  Usually have a decent selection of baby and kids toys.  Also has a small isle for maternity clothes.

Old Navy – Also has a small selection of maternity clothes.   (best online shopping hint: if you buy it online from oldnavy.com and it doesn’t fit, you can return it to the store!) Always has baby and kids clothes, and great sales.

Gap  – The Gap at the Shops at Wailea  carries Gap (women’s), Gapbody, and Baby Gap.  NEW 2014 Update: Kids clothes seen at The Outlets of Maui (Lahaina) Gap.

Blue Ginger–  colorful batik ‘resortwear’ – with lots of kids and baby clothes and blankets – your best bet to find cute (and comfortable) mommy and me/whole family matching outfits… if that’s really what you are looking for… numerous locations around the island.

Maui Ocean Center Store  – (Update: Now the store has an ONLINE shop!) The gift shop at the aquarium (FREE entry to store – just check in at front gate) has a large section just for kids, with all kinds of educational games and toys (not just marine-related), a whole kids book section with lots of Hawaii-themed books, and of course aquarium-related t-shirts and stuffed animals.  Last time I was there, they also had lots of really high-quality baby toys as well.  And the perennial children’s favorite – the glow in the dark cave!  with all kinds of glow in the dark and light up toys.  They also have a big selection of locally made soaps, lotions and body products, like reef-safe sunscreen.  It’s also one of the few places on island to find the ‘i-play’ kids sunshirts and suits, rash guards, and reusable swim diapers and hats.  There’s discounts for Kama’aina and members.

Perfection Bra Fitting – in Wailuku. Nursing bras.  Get sized by appointment.  Its worth it.  And you’ll want to go back after your are done breastfeeding since your boobs will just never be the same…

Valley Isle Childbirth Education – Nancy (who also does childbirth and childcare classes) sells Medela breastpumps, parts and supplies, plus a ton of awesome other stuff, and she’ll even show you how to use them. I’m not sure if this is still the case, but she even delivered to my house after my daughter was born.

And, for more ‘baby shower’ and just plain cute baby stuff, you can head upcountry to Makawao and check out Designing Wahine and Oh, Baby!, and head to Paia and peruse Nuage Bleu for cute clothes, and Lilikoi Beauty (baby lotions/swaddlers, etc at last check!)

Keiki Collections: Looking for quality wood children’s furniture on Maui? Keiki Collections has a workshop/storefront on Wili Pa Loop in Wailuku and you can see lots of great examples (they do custom orders!) online!

And Maui-based Online Stores:

Thrift, Consignment and Second-Hand Shops on Maui

Update September 2017 – I’ve updated a few hours and locations but didn’t double check every listing. Please comment below if I’m missing something! 

Update January 2016: Just saw this on Ask the Mayor and thought it was helpful:

Dear Mayor,

Q: I have a couple of car seats that my child has outgrown and I was wondering what I can do with them. Secondhand stores don’t take them and I don’t want them to go in the landfill. Mahalo.

A: You can take the car seats to Ka Hale A Ke Ola homeless shelter. They will accept them there. The shelter is located at 670 Waiale Road in Wailuku.

 

It seems like everyday a new thrift or consignment store is opening up, and another one is closing down. The only website that I can find with a complete listing of thrift shops on Maui is dated 2004, meaning its ten years old, and of course, half of those places are closed.

So, here’s my list of thrift and consignment stores currently (to the best of my knowledge, and please send me or comment with updates) operating on Maui.   (There are a few second-hand furniture stores that are not on this list, but if you know of a GREAT one, let me know)

Our customers know they can find great designers, and now vintage hawaiian muumuu’s and aloha shirts.  I love when we get in pretty dresses,and beach tunics (especially Le Tarte) and designer denim. A few great denim labels are;Paige,AG,Seven,Current Elliott,Mother,J Brand, Tees we love are James Perse, Velvet, Susanna Monaco. Any Clothing from anthropologie, and H&M customers love.
