24 days of Christmas: Homegrown style

School team bracelet


Homegrown started as a Leeward side pop-up before its transformation as a Pearlridge store. At the co-op run by local designers and creatives, who each have a section in the store, shoppers will find high-quality, homegrown Hawaii apparel, jewelry and accessories, housewares, books and bath-and-body items.

Among the unique items carried here are school team-inspired bracelets ($20 each) for those who want to cheer on their Kaimuki Bulldogs, Waipahu Mauraders or Castle Knights; and Aloha Spirit Boxes by Tamsen Fox, carved, illustrated gourd vessels by Tamsen Fox, created to house treasures and mementos while bestowing good mana on those who receive them. (Pueo design is pictured at top.)

These ceramic cups are $15 each. The coasters are $8 each.

Sunrise shell necklaces by Keola Lemau range from about $90 plain to $165 for those bearing a Tahitian black pearl.
