MIKE CARROLL GALLERY
443 7th St.
Lanai City
Tel: 808-565-7122

The dreamy oil paintings of Mike Carroll, a medical and commercial illustrator turned plein-air artist, convey a romantic yet familiar vision of island life and landscapes, from lush gardens to palm trees dancing under stiff trade winds to the legendary 17th hole at the Challenge at Manele golf course. The gallery, which occupies a vintage plantation-era building, sells both his oils and his prints, in various sizes, along with the work of two dozen other top island artists and artisans. Lanai Cook pine bowls (as thin and elegantly wrought as china), fine-art photography, one-of-a-kind jewelry and fish-print tapestries are among the wonderful selections you're likely to find.

THE LOCAL GENTRY
363 7th St.
Lanai City
Tel: 808-565-9130

At first blush you don’t expect a sleepy backwater like Lanai City to have a boutique as chic and trendy as this one—yet here it is, right off Dole Park, the central square. Islanders and mainlanders alike love the fun mix of urban and island clothing and accessories that owner Jenna Gentry Majkus has packed into her treasure chest of a store. There's apparel for any occasion you could possibly encounter on Lanai, from T-shirts, men’s swimsuits and beach skirts to active wear and dresses for evenings around the resort. There are also fashionable shoes and bags, along with jewelry, bath products, unique sandals, mahogany lamps and other surprises.

DIS ’N DAT SHOP
418 8th St.
Lanai City
Tel: 808-565-9170

This jungle-green shop fringed with whimsical wind chimes, mobiles and year-round Christmas lights is packed with thousands of art, gift and jewelry items in a minuscule space enlivened by a glittering crystal ceiling. The cheery owners, Barry and Suzie (he’s "Dis" and she’s "Dat") Osman, comb the world to stock their eclectic inventory. Among the riches are exotic wood sculpture, carving and furnishings; Asian antiques, stained glass, unusual T-shirts, pottery, ceramics, batik scarves, basketry, hula-girl and dragonfly lamps, and perhaps the largest selection of "Hawaiian slippah" jewelry—miniature flip-flops in necklace, earring, anklet and bracelet form—you'll ever see. The fanciful garden ornaments and serene Buddhas everywhere you turn add to the charm.

GIFTS WITH ALOHA FROM LANAI
363 7th St.
Lanai City
Tel: 808-565-6589

This is a must-stop for authentic Hawaiian gifts and souvenirs and an excellent place to find casual resortwear, like bold and bright Jams World shirts and dresses and Lanai-designed Stone Shack shirts. Almost everything is made somewhere in Hawaii, with an especially strong showing by Lanai residents. The E&G Ingenuity body scrubs, soaps and candles are the work of a local mother-and-daughter team. The jars of unheated, certified organic rare white honey come from a grove of kiawe trees on the Big Island. Soaps and bath products with island scents—pineapple, plumeria, pikake—are made on Maui. There’s also a good selection of island music, books and DVDs on Hawaii, hand-blown glass, watercolors and jewelry made by island hands.
