It happened again. You managed to pry a bleary eye open this morning with one thought running through your mind. What the heck happened in the past 48 hours?

Yep. It was another one of those whirlwind weekends. You probably don't even remember stopping by Makkuro Makkuro and A Pinch of Salt in Kakaako. Lucky for you, we were also there. Feel free to examine a few snapshots from both events and discover where you can find those items now.

The best-seller at Paiko's booth: real mistletoe! Unfortunately, they sold out by the time we arrived, but you can still pick up festive holiday arrangements at Paiko's brand-new retail space, located just around the corner at 675 Auahi St. Details here.
