There is something for everyone, from jewelry to hawaiiana to aloha shirts to ivory everyone is sure to find something to take home!Great knowledgeable owners, who are very friendly!And to top it off the BEST ICE CREAM IN THE WORLD!!!!!!! I'm not even kidding!
Discovery Antiques was an amazing find on our trip to the Big Island. We wanted to find some unique souvenirs from our trip so we stopped by to check it out. The shop is eclectic in the best way possible. They have jewelry, bottles, vintage clothing, collectable toys and figurines, Hawaiiana (perfect for a unique souvenir) and so much more. The staff was very knowledgeable and willing to work with us on the price and shipping. They have something for everyone even if antiques aren’t your thing its worth the stop. Plus if you stop you can get some of their delicious Ice Cream. The woman working described it as the best ice cream you will have and boy she wasn’t kidding. Tropical Dreams the brand of Ice Cream they sell is fresh, rich and creamy in all sorts of interesting flavors such as the Lava Java, Toasted Coconut Cream, and the Chocolate Coconut Macnut just to name a few that we tried. All in all Discovery Antiques was totally worth the trip.
It is a very interesting place. The building doesn't look like much but you just don't know what you maight find inside. I found a couple of very rare license plates as well as old signage, vintage bottles, a vintage hand-crank shaved ice machine, an old crank phone and so much more. His prices were more reasonable than most stuff in Hawaii. I might have bought more except for shipping costs.
