Add a Pinch of Salt to your holiday shopping schedule

Nov. 30, 2015

Contributed by Aron Dote

Early sunsets and a slight chill in the air signify that the holiday season is here, along with Kaka‘ako's über-popular “A Pinch of Salt for the Holidays.” The annual shopping event returns to SALT on Saturday, December 5 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 333 Keawe St. in Our Kaka‘ako

Saturday’s event will feature unique pop-up shops featuring trendy, local retailers not found at other shopping venues. Retailers include Andy South from Lifetime Network’s Project Runway, and A. Wattz Dezigns – whose handcrafter jewelry focus on subtly edgy new trends and classic everyday pieces.

“A Pinch of Salt for the Holidays is an opportunity for attendees to preview SALT,” says Kamehameha Schools’ former Development Marketing Manager Erin Kinney. “It will be the first event at SALT at Our Kaka‘ako that is open to the general public reflecting the hip fashionable style and taste of Our Kaka‘ako.”

Retailers will also include The Cut Collective, Bikini Bird, Salt Liko + Matt Bruening, Kira Hawaii, Nak on Wood,  Jiwa Jiwa Press and Gilla. Area eateries will be open to feed hungry shoppers including Brue Bar, Cocina, Starbucks, Hank’s Haute Dogs, Highway Inn, Insomnia, Lanikai Juice and Bevy.

Opening in 2016, SALT at Our Kaka‘ako will be Honolulu’s urban epicenter for local culture, food, shopping and innovative events. The dynamic city block is designed to be a place for exploration and engagement for the growing Kaka‘ako community.

About Our Kaka’ako
Our Kaka‘ako is a mixed-use, urban-island community by Kamehameha Schools on nine contiguous city blocks in the heart of Honolulu, between South Street and Ward Avenue. The community, which is currently in redevelopment, will contain a mixture of low-rise and high-rise structures, a range of housing types, open spaces, a central gathering place, and a neighborhood supportive of commercial and industrial uses. Part of the vision for Our Kaka‘ako is that it will continue to grow as a progressive catalyst for innovation and become the epicenter of urban-island culture, and the lifestyle that it represents.
