There's a new shop in town: Recarte Holt & Roe just took over the corner spot on Main and Market Streets in thriving Old Wailuku town. It's like nothing I've seen here on Maui- they specialize in writing and art tools, as well as offering art classes to the community.
Walking in, you feel like you've stepped back in time a bit, as you see easels, pens, ink and more.
Specialty ink, pencils and standard rulers.
Paintbrushes galore, composition books and even your basic crayons.
And great deals!
Easels, scissors, more pencils and a pencil sharpener.
Pick up a canvas for just $4.00
Don't forget the acrylic paint.
Pens are 50 cents each, or 30 cents an ounce!
Perfect so you can write in your $10 journal.
Of course, Ivy wanted to pose with their oversize pencil. They have tons of cute products at the checkout station.
They have a great reason for opening this store:
"In a world full of social media and electronic messaging, it's become more and more important to become creative to stand out amongst the crowd. Nothing says that better than to take a moment and handwrite a note to someone to let them know how special that they are to you. At Recarte Holt & Roe, we cater to your every need when it comes to fine writing... we founded Recarte Holt & Roe after the knowledge handed down to us by our Grandfathers and Mothers... a carefully crafted card of thanks or letter of recognition goes alot farther today than it did in decades past."
