Hawaii is known for many of the important things that New Zealanders look for when planning a beach holiday to get away from the winter chills. Beautiful beaches, retail therapy and an increasing variety of bars and restuarants. And often it is the variety that makes Hawaii a destination that Kiwi travellers keep going back to.
It's a pleasant surprise to coming across Vintage European Posters in the charming historic town in Lahaina in Maui. This 19th century fishing port is geared towards tourists with lots of art galleries, jewellers and eating establishments. To find this specialist poster shop is a bit unexpected but very welcome.
The knowledgeable and friendly staff will happily "pull turn" over hundreds and hundreds of posters for you in this shop crammed full of original vintage posters of all shapes and sizes. All linen backed and in great condition you can find all types of posters from the famous, to iconic Hawaiian travel posters, to European travel and advertising. We even found New Zealand and Australian travel posters there too.
Such is the selection, it's hard to walk away without a purchase. The staff will happily ship world-wide in well packed poster boxes and will be flexible on the price if you are purchasing multiple items.
I can't think of a better travel souvenir!
