The Christmas Extravaganza is the largest handmade-only craft fair on the Big Island and all of our favorite vendors are returning such as Napua`ala, Kalo Kini and Hawaii Balsamics to name a few. We also have 15 new vendors joining our Extravaganza family this year like Dezigns by Kamohoalii, Alohiena, and Sun ‘n Soul Boutique. We screen all products for craftsmanship and uniqueness so that our customers can shop with confidence and know that they are buying quality handmade items.”
