I was on Lanai for work but after we finished getting our last interview and footage for our sustainability series, my colleague and I wandered into the Dis ‘N Dat store to look for some souvenirs. It’s a cute little shop with a car in front – it’s hard to miss.
Just steps before you even get into the shop, you hear the wind chimes coaxing you inside. You look up and to the side, and every inch of this place is covered with stuff. I admit it was a bit overwhelming to sift through the selections of souvenirs from jewelry, wood carvings, and wind chimes but it felt magical. For a second, I thought the Mad Hatter would walk through the door because there was definitely whimsy in this place.
I asked where the owners were but they weren’t in. I figured owners of a place like this must have a good story. When I read about them online, looks like they are from Florida and bought this little shop. You can find out more here.
You’ve now seen what the place looks like. Here’s a video so you can hear the chimes and my take on it. My apologies for the poor video quality – I think it may be time to upgrade my camera. Regardless, I hope you enjoy the sounds and my clumsy ways in this video. 🙂
Special thanks to Adriene Hill for filming this for me.

Very cool. Love following your adventures! When I was on Lanai last year I saw 2 things – The Four Seasons Manale and the Four Seasons Koele. Could have used some tips for local tchotchke!
I love visiting unusual stores like that while traveling. Also, I like how you made a video…looking forward to more of these.
Too cute, Angela! Love that you get to travel and work at the same time. Must be fun taping your stuff. What are you documenting?
Thanks everyone! I’ve been on the road filming for our Marketplace sustainability series called “Show Me The Future.” I was glad I had some time at the end of the day to get a bite to eat and go into this shop. I love finding random places! Stay tuned for more adventures.
