fabric flags

Posted on June 17, 2014 by Lesley Cummings | 0 Comments

CHEERS TO SIX YEARS! It is our anniversary next month, and we are so excited to celebrate! The Maui Thing Circus will take place on July 4 at Wailuku First Friday! The "to do list" is long, but we are slowly checking things off. The store is looking "circusy" as we begin to get in the mood. We made these amazing fabric flags and had to share with our Maui Thing 'ohana. 


  • String/rope
  • Glue gun/glue sticks
  • Fabric


  1. Get some fun fabric! Look around your house. This is the perfect project to use whatever you may have laying around your house. Or else head to a fabric store and have some fun choosing out fabrics.
  2. Make a stencil with the shape you want to use for your flags. Big, small, you decide.                                                                                             
  3. Trace your stencil on the fabric. Make sure to trace on the back side of the material so the pencil mark does not show.
  4. Cut away. Decide what pattern you want your flag to be.
  5. Leave a good amount of string on the ends before gluing. Decide on your spacing and glue away. We glued each flag right next to each other.
  6. Hang away!


We think our flags are AWESOME! They add the perfect touch to our circus decor. We also plan on using them for parties and other Maui Thing events!

wailuku first friday: ekolu live!

Posted on June 01, 2011 by ashley | 0 Comments

In celebration of the grand opening of Boze Kapoi's PRIDE INK, Ekolu will be playing live this First Friday on the Maui Thing stage! Ekolu, a homegrown Maui band, got their start at Brown Bags to Stardom at Baldwin High School in 1995. With hits like "Just One Night," and " Shores of Waiehu," all of us have grown to love the band and their laid back vibes. We're stoked to have these 3-time Na Hoku Hanohano award winners play for us on Market Street!!!

First Friday was a blast, opening the festivities was Hi Riz from the Big Island!

Then Ekolu was up, and they jammed! Market Street was buzzing with people! Mahalo Ekolu!

I started writing this blog post a few times..describing Lily, calling her the "Sweetest 16", trying to put her voice into text. None of them seemed to bode well enough for her upcoming performance at the Maui Thing stage after seeing her live a few weeks ago. So I decided to go with technology and just embed a youtube video of her into the post! Like they say, "a picture speaks a thousand words."...and in this case, a video speaks a million. Lily's voice is inexplainable. She's a 16 year old Maui girl living in Kuau with the voice of a spectacular soul singer. Think Ella Fitzgerald meets today's Adele. She's classy but hip. Edgy yet local. Simple and beautiful. She's the cover story in the current issue of On Maui! Magazine, with the likes of Willie Nelson, Michael Buble and her producer, Bob Rock praising her talent. Check out this quick preview of her singing with Toby Couture..then come see them LIVE this First Friday on the Maui Thing stage. Bring a lawn chair or a blanket and chill :)

thanks to Jennifer Rosenblad for the photo!
