What did you do during spring break? Stella Blanchard learned how to sew and taught her friend Lilia Gordines (she’s got multiple parts in the upcoming Kalaheo School production of “Aladin Jr.!”). Together, the pair sewed up a bunch of headbands they were selling at The Beach House restaurant craft fair (kudos to Edwin Vea — and mahalo for the lunch offer — on having the largest one with 35 local vendors).
Lilia’s mom said the girls will use the proceeds from the headband sale for their college fund, with 10 percent being donated to the animals (Kauai Humane Society).
Annette Hashimoto (she said there’s another craft fair benefiting Christy Wong coming up in Kapaa) had the prime spot near the entrance, and Candice Boxer said Greg Askew offered to work the craft fair where the new Ono Pops Strawberry Mango Swirl sold out once the sun burned through the rain clouds.
Judy Ingram and Lynn Wilson of Washington came after participating in the Lihue March for Our Lives (they said there was another one in Kilauea) and getting dumped on. They were enjoying the nice ocean backdrop a lot of vendors offered, and Jessica Clabo is getting excited about the National Tropical Botanical Garden’s Cinco de Mayo function (mark your calendars).
Happy Prince Kuhio Day (who’s got the day off?)!
