Maui Mompreneur Shopping Event

Maui Mompreneur celebrates its 11th year supporting our local community of shoppers and vendors!  With an abundance of Maui-made crafts, jewelry, art, clothing, baked goods and more, Maui Mompreneur Spring Event is the perfect place to grab a creative gift, or treat yourself to something special.

Maui Mompreneur is partnering with University of Hawai’i Maui College (UHMC) for its Open House on Friday, April 26th from 5 to 8 p.m. in the Pa’ina Building, which will feature 24 local vendors, Hawaiian food, tofu/veggie plates and a classic car show.

The shopping opportunities ramp up over the weekend with a range of 45 vendors, both inside and outside of the Pa’ina Building.  The event is happening from 4 to 8 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday.   

This season’s event will include around a dozen first-time participants who recently started their businesses to supplement income loss after the fires.

“Supporting local means helping each other out.  Since the fires, our small businesses and those who run them need our help more than ever.  Unfortunately, many people have had to leave our island, not always because the fires destroyed their homes but because living here has gotten too expensive,” says event co-founder Luana HueSing-Ammasi.  “So when we buy from local businesses, we do more than just shop. We help people put food on the table and keep a roof over their heads.  Spending our money at local businesses keeps our money here, on our island.  This is really important now as we try to rebuild and bring our community back together.  Supporting local helps us all.”

Examples of this year’s vendors and products include handmade soaps, crochet items, jewelry, local treats, exotic snacks from Japan, plate lunches, clothing, ceramics, wood laser printing, tote bags, fishing pole bags, baked goods, skin care products, and farmers with produce and plants.  There will also be a “kidpreneur” table called Bead ‘Em Up Hawai’i with bead bracelets, lanyards, car charms and keychains, led by a 5-year-old vendor and her mom (to encourage values like kuleana and work ethic).
