Kailua Business Store Fronts

Aloha Friday!  I apologize for the interruption in blog use lately.  I looked at the calendar and was like...November???  Really??? 

Well I'm sure most of can relate to how fast this year has gone by, and a mighty fine one at that!  Wanted  to keep you updated on the fun projects  3rd Ave Shore has done around the island.

Lanikai Bath & Body was so nice to have me come in and re-vamp their store sections. Immediately entering Lanikai Bath & Body you feel so fresh with the smell of local aroma's in the air.  They carry a wonderful variety of all natural body butters, tropical lotions, handmade soaps, and many other island favorites (even have a doggie section!).  Pretty much 3rd Ave Shore put wall words around the store to help the customers get to know their way around better.  The front windows (which are so nice and huge!!) I added their trademark naupaka flower to the front 
 windows and split it down the middle so it was showcased in a larger way. 

 Global Village  is located in the heart of Kailua. It is host (or I should say hostess...because it's family owned and operated by a mother & her 2 daughters)   to some great local finds from Hawaii.  They have a jewelry making section in the back, plenty of fun threads, trinkets,  bags and much more!  It is a wonderful place for shopping and you'll be sure to find clothing for women, men and keiki, as well as a huge selection of must-have accessories and gifts.  

3rd Ave Shore was  lucky enough to design the front window decals and inspirations wall words around the dressing room area.It was fun to design and great to service such a fun local shop!

Stay posted for our next projects!  Soon to come..Nohea Galleries.

Are you interested in having 3rd Ave Shore design store front signage for your windows?  Well I'd love to help spruce your identity :)  Feel free to contact me here @ 3rd Ave Shore

What a surprise!

Aloha everyone! Typically Mondays can be a bit blah, but yesterday's Monday R.O.C.K.E.D! I ran into Kailua's Shore Break Shave Ice truck! It was exciting to see 3rd Ave Shore's decals in action!

A few months back I did some custom artwork (surf and wave decals) for this shave ice truck. Seeing this old postal mail carrier really put me to the test. I loved that I was working with a blank canvas, so I decided that a long wave starting from the back and ending in the front would be perfect! Added some rainbow wording..and ta dah! Here it is!

The idea behind the truck is to be somewhat of an ice cream truck, meaning it's mobile! Shore Break Shave Ice cruises around Kailua selling 25 Ono delicious flavors of shave ice. I had coconut and watermelon yesterday...YUM! Check out their great site (you can even rent it for parties!).
Shorebreak Shave Ice.  A warm mahalo to Dave and Brook for bringing me on board with this fun project, may your business be blessed!

Reduce, Reuse, Refashion.....

3rd Ave Shore is delighted to be working with Cream of The Crop for their new window decals.

A good consignment store is something to tell your friends about, but a great consignment store you almost want to keep to yourself. Let's just say you should count yourself very lucky, that I'm even writing this piece on Cream of The Crop in Casa Grande, AZ.

The designation of a "good" versus a "great" consignment store relys heavily on 3 factors--pieces, prices, and placement. While part of the allure of a consignment store is hunting for bargains, you also don't want to spend hours on end digging through piles of fabric or having your eyes poked out by racks of haphazard hangers.

So how did Cream of The Crop rate?

Placement: Extremely well-organized by category and size, with a special side area's for quality shoes and purses.

Prices: Almost everything I picked up was under $20. Even the designer pieces were very fairly priced and in excellent shape.

Pieces: I don't know where to start--I was like a kid in a candy shop! The first thing I spotted when I walked in were these 2 lovely $1 racks!!! What?? A Dollar?? All the items on the rack were in excellent condition, like new. Get this, the owner even has a tea bar set up in the back, with an extended flavor and herbs selection.

More and more these days we are all trying to save a buck or two, whether it be for economical times or to put away in our vacation savings! I highly recommend stopping by this very cute quality consignment shop if you're ever in Arizona. Thanks you so very much Cream of The crop for allowing 3rdaveshore to design your new window decals.
