Peggy's Picks on Kapahulu Ave

As you travel in and out of Waikiki on Kapahulu Ave, you can’t help but notice Peggy's Picks - a store that sits on a corner decorated with many alluring treasures displayed outside the entrance and in their large store windows.

Peggys Picks

If Peggy is not traveling around the islands…or around the world for that matter, picking up new exciting items, then you might get the pleasure of meeting her at her store.  She’s friendly and loves to tell you the stories of where things came from.

That being said, Peggy does not care to be in the limelight or take recognition for her iconic creation.  I couldn’t even get her to take a picture for this Peggy’s Picks page!  That's one of her happy workers in the photo to the right...

Peggys Picks Store

Peggy travels about half the year, including stops in Southeast Asia, Europe, and corners of the Pacific, for treasures to feature in her shop.  She avoids the cheap junk and really expensive items.  There are some great best of Oahu picks to be found!

Peggys Picks Masks

You can expect to find detailed wooden carved masks & sculptures, exotic furniture and eye-catching artwork.  Peggy’s Picks is packed with many different items to treasure hunt through.

The 4-foot Hawaiian tikis are a popular item in this Waikiki/Honolulu shop…that is if they are in stock!

They are hand carved by a local artist, and don’t last long once displayed.

Please note that Peggy has some “simple” rules when purchasing items.  I believed she phrased it as “you must be present for your purchase, and transport the items yourself”.

Peggys Picks Tiki

There is no internet site to browse, nor purchases conducted over the phone.  If you’re flying home, good luck taking large items on the plane or shipping it for that matter.  A pair of earrings or some candles are clearly not a problem to pack away in the luggage, but try shipping an 80 pound, 6 foot plus Bali mask.

Luckily there is a UPS shipping store one block up the road.  If it doesn’t workout, Peggys Picks will understandably allow you to return your purchase.

Getting to Peggy's Picks

Peggys Picks Store

Simply take Kuhio Ave south until it intersects with Kapahulu Ave (at the Honolulu Zoo) and turn Left.  Follow Kapahulu for about half a mile until you see noticeable shop on your left or Taco Bell on your right.
