Makawao, Maui.

Makawao, Maui.

Makawao is a cool little colorful rural town, that has a distinct feel that is much different then the typical Hawaii community.  It is made up of small shops and art galleries each with its own colorful character.  Add in some nice restaurants, and you have the perfect diversion from the beach – not that you really need one!  But just in case…

As I wandered around photographing this fun little town last Friday, it hit me that this was “black Friday”, the busiest shopping day of the year.  It was kinda sad to see just how few people were supporting these local artists and craftsmen on the busiest day of the year, knowing full well that 5 or 10 miles away was a Wallmart packed with huge crowds and lines.
