Please note
Due to relocation of the business and the ongoing pandemic,
The Barefoot Hawaiian Shop has been closed indefinitely.

Step inside the Barefoot Hawaiian Shop and let yourself be instantly transported to Hawaii.


We stock authentic merchandise from the islands including the hottest Aloha shirts, a wide variety of leis, party goods, and, of course, grass skirts. We also carry Hawaiian music and books.

Planning a luau or Hawaiian theme event?  Make us your first stop. It will likely be the only one you'll make for all your Hawaiian goods.

Hiring entertainment from us?  The only thing left is you and your guests.

Make your event clearly an island adventure by dressing Hawaiian and save money doing so. With every entertainment hire, you receive discounts and/or money-off coupons for our merchandise.

The Barefoot Hawaiian Shop is open
Tuesday through Saturday
12:30 PM — 3:00 PM
Please Call Ahead ***

Visa and MasterCard accepted

*** Although we operate under regular and standard store hours, we strongly recommend that you call ahead before coming if that is possible for you to do.  It happens at times that performance obligations require us to close our store because our store staff is needed at a show or event.  Calling ahead assures you, our valuable customer, that we will be here to serve you when you arrive.
Thank you.
