Aloha Stadium Swap Meet
Odds and ends, bits and pieces, trash and treasure of every description are for sale at this free-for-all in the Aloha Stadium. Hundreds of vendors come to display their wares, and thousands of shoppers descend upon the booths ready to find a bargain. You can buy T-shirts, sarongs, beach towels, jewelry of questionable quality, electronic equipment and every other kind of merchandise imaginable. The entire Stadium fills up with people during these events and an atmosphere of glee can often prevail. Browse, examine, chat up the vendor...maybe you'll find something nifty; maybe you'll just have fun. Haggling is acceptable here, so don't be afraid to ask for a deal.
We went on a rainy Wednesday. Not as many vendors as there would of been had the sun been shining. But enough to spend my money. The nice thng about the rain was it kept the locals away because they can come anytime, and it wasn't hot which in could of been because the swap meet in out in the parking lot.
Kia Ora, there's plenty to see and do at the swap meet. if you are considering going for the first time, GO!!! the atmosphere is great and it's cheap. Can't wait to go back.
You can get almost anything here for less than half the price you would have to pay in other places in Honolulu. It's even cheaper than the Military PX stores. A great place to buy luggage. I bought a bag to take extra "things" I bought in Hawaii for folks at home and paid exactly half of what the same bag was going for in the PX. Take walking shoes. It's BIG...
We dragged our thirteen year old grand-daughter who had not wanted to go. That little darling came alive at the Swap meet and had to be dragged away hours later as did the rest of us.The prices are great. There are tons of things to buy from coconut syrup, luggage, T-shirts, Hawaiian shirts, and all the souvenirs one could possibly want.We are going back to the island in the spring and this is on the "must do" list.
My wife and daughter, Always buy our stuff
and gifts to take back to the mainland at
the swapmeet. The products and prices are
such a bargain,and we get to shop from the
local people..and not a high priced waikiki
mall.We love this place..
I'm originally from Hawaii, so everytime I go back to visit, I hit the Aloha Swap Meet at least twice! Shirts (8 for $20), bags, knick knacks, food, everything is there at a really great price. Plus it's great exercise! I suggest going to there to everyone who visits Oahu.
The Swap meet at Aloha Stadium is a definite MUST SEE on any visit to Hawaii. The things you'll be able to find there are of great value. You can't beat the 50 cent admission price either. I must remember that the swap meet is only open on Wed., Sat, and Sun. I did alot of my Christmas shopping there...and it was April!!!!
