When we were in Maui in March, my mom and I fell in love with the town of Paia. It reminded me a lot of a town called Bolinas, up in Northern California where I grew up. Very relaxed, colorful, with a little bit of a boho vibe. People were so friendly and gave us amazing recommendations for shopping, eating, and the cutest backyard coffee shop.
The first store we popped into was Pearl. A local version of an Anthropologie store. The buyers had great range, and the merchandising was on point for an eclectic but organized shopping experience. From tie-dye pom pom rompers, to home decor pillows, and comforters, to newly added baby designs, it had all you would need to revamp your home, wardrobe, and family. They carry many local lines, as well as brands from all around the world.
I walked out with only a turkish towel, but I still have my eyes on those two bags, especially the eye clutch. I could’ve spent hours in there, and truthfully we did spend over an hour just talking with the lovely staff. If you’re on Maui, I highly recommend popping in and shopping till you drop too. If you love the photos, but don’t have a trip to Maui planned, they have items online, or you can call into the shop. Their instagram @PaiaPearl is a great look into the store!
