What did you buy to bring home?

Recommended Posts

As I research my ports I focus on things special I might want to buy to bring home… from art work to food items… for me knowing and researching ahead of times provides a glimpse into the location and provides clues to the history and cultures .  Plus it also helps me to budget… so I started my research and already learned about pineapple products and vanilla on Moorea…

 

where will I be? 

Bora Bora
Raiatea 
Papeete
Moorea 
Maroe Bay, Huahine
Avatoru,Rangiroa 
Fakarava, Tuamotu
Taiohae, Nuku Hiva 

 

So if you have been to any of these locations and brought home something special (or wish you did) please comment… 

 

thanks for helping me to learn about the places I’ll be going to

It has been a few years since we were there.

Tahiti - Intercontinental Tahiti - Pearls in their jewelry Store

Raiatea (or it could have been Huahine) - Carved and etched pearls

Tahiti Airport - best prices on carved outrigger paddles.

 

 

Carved and etched pearls sound cool!!!

A little offbeat.

I'm a swimmer and snorkeler and always wear a pareo with my swimsuit. Years back the pareos you bought in FP were from fabric made and sewn in FP. Like most things, no more.

I sew and buy locally made fabrics at a fabric store in Arue, 10 min from Papeete, Tahiti Art Maohi. Can get your "Ia orana" shirts there too.

Thanks…. I’m a crafter so fabric always something of interest. I want at a minimum designed by… but preferably also created there…
