"Ethereal Death"



Last weekend, for Mother's Day, my mom-in-law(she's more like a second mom!) and I took a girls' day out and drove to Hanapepe for a look at their art and antique shops...

While tromping around town, we ran across the cutest local used bookstore, Talk Story
~ www.talkstorybookstore.com, which reminded me of the old antique stores in Northern Florida - open and airy, high ceilings, dark, worn, wooden floors, painted barn red and complete with oh-so-sweet shop cats :D! We fell in love with the place and its owners, Ed and Cynthia...Knowledgeable about their business, friendly and full of Aloha spirit Ed and Cynthia are intent on giving back to others, not to mention being all about the Hanapepe community...Visit their website for more history and information...On an end note, I am proud to say some of my photos are displayed and for sale in their shop ~ Thanks for your kindness Ed & Cynthia!

Hanapepe(or as it is fondly known by locals~Kauai's Biggest Little Town) is the art capital of our Garden Isle...Hanapepe means "crushed bay"...Enjoy a few photos of this quaint, historical and rustic town which are all for sale in my etsy shop...
Saw this vintage gas tank and truck at the edge of town:
