1. Good Stuff, The
A visitor to this Old Town shop might mistake it for a museum if it were not for the fact that the items on display are for sale. The "good stuff" refers to the authenticity of the merchandise. The pots and pine needle baskets are the handiwork of the Tarahumara Indians of Chihahua, Mexico. The photos of Pancho Villa date back to the days of the Mexican Revolution. And real cowboys of yesteryear wore the spurs and gun leather.

2. New Mexico Bead and Fetish
Long before the word acquired its kinky connotation, a fetish was a carved stone talisman, usually of an animal and about the size of a golf ball.

It represents a number of Native fetish artists, chief among them Brian Yatsattie of Zuni Pueblo. The store also offers the largest selection of craft beads you would expect to find anywhere.

1. Aloha Marketplace
Half flea market, half craft bazaar, this haphazard confusion of stalls is amazingly popular with tourists. That is probably due to its proximity to the beach and (more likely) its seedy carnival atmosphere; you really get the feeling that great bargains are hiding here. While fabulous bargains do not really exist in South Kihei, you might find decent sarongs, silver jewelry, koa wood statuettes and other semi-kitschy gift items. A slightly lurid yet still popular adult shop, the Love Shack, is tucked back into a corner of the Marketplace.

A sunny outdoor patio in the center is the perfect spot for an informal meal. It is fairly easy to spot this place; it looks like a gigantic warehouse with no front doors. Credit card acceptance policy and hours of operation vary by merchant.

3. Lahaina Market Place
While it can't really be called a shopping center, this place is definitely a few steps up from the standard crafts bazaar. Fully half the merchants have their own store, and things are more sedate than at Kihei's Aloha Market. All manner of wood carvings, ornaments, jewelry and other souvenir items are on sale. A few high-class art galleries are in the back. Three informal eateries are in the center courtyard, and the tables that they share seem to be constantly crowded with shoppers taking a load off.

86. Yard Art
A monumental place to find just about anything you'd need to create your own garden paradise. The owner scours the country to find distinctive antique and vintage pieces. The result is an atmospheric establishment full of marble fountains, enormous iron urns, recumbent stone lions of heroic size, and gates of delicate wrought iron. Walking into this inviting store is like discovering a secluded courtyard in a New Orleans mansion or a mossy corner of an English country garden. Atmosphere like this is not cheap, though, and most of the items are over $1,000. That pottery jar, four feet tall and almost as wide that resided for a century in the Pyranees is $2,200. Yet there are some bargains, like terra cotta tiles from the Savannah Cotton Exchange for $90 each. The owner, who's sweetly fanatical about his stock, loves to tell tales of how he discovered the pieces hither and yon.

1. Arundel Books
The floor-to-ceiling shelves (complete with ladders for access), the winding back rooms and the vertigo-inducing loft are all crammed with used and rare treasures. The selection ranges from specialties like Bukowski and the Beat poets to cheap sci-fi and military history. There's something for everyone, and what the shop lacks in comfort (glaring fluorescent lighting, no seats for relaxing), it makes up for in affordability. The shop has a decent Internet ordering service, too.

3. Chameleon
Al Frank's tidy shop specializes in used art, architecture and science books, and rare publications. But there's always a good, if unsorted, selection of sale items in the bins outside, and Frank is always happy to help customers browse. Like many other independent booksellers these days, he does a good deal of business over the Internet, which explains why he no longer officially opens the shop on weekdays. But stop by, and he might be inside.

4. David Ishii, Bookseller
An avuncular, bespectacled little man, Ishii knows what he likes, and sells only what interests him. Nearest to his heart are baseball and fly fishing. Old Seattle lore often pops up, too.

His collection contains the very best used and rare books on his beloved topics. No credit cards are accepted.

5. Globe Books
Tucked away on the upper reaches of University Way is this little delight of a bookstore, which makes up for what it lacks in size through sheer over-crowded clutter. Specializing in humanities (literature through theology), it offers very reasonable prices, and the buy-back rate is generous if you have titles to unload. Do be aware of the lunch hour, though, as the sleepy staff is notorious for taking long lunches, well past the allotted time.

7. Market Street Books
One of the newer bookshops in town, this place has most of the elements of an arty independent bookstore down pat: quirky floor plan, sagging couches for lounging, exposed brick walls and tons of pale, rough wood bookshelves. Oh, and they've got books, too. The selection comprises used books as well as "new" books, secondhand from other stores and sold here at discounts from 30- to 80-percent off the cover prices. Cookery and travel are strong sections, but it's a good general bookstore.

Like the other stores of the same name, this record shop offers everything and nothing related to pop and not-so-pop culture, with a vast array of compact discs, cassettes, videos and vinyl records.

18. Record Exchange
This place was made for the savvy shopper. While it offers the standard array of second-hand compact discs, cassettes and vinyl, the real deal comes with a hefty trade-in allowance. While you can sell your used CDs for cold hard cash, your best bet is to make a trade, where the exchange value is upped by a third.

20. Rex Music
This record shop was started by ex-musician Pete Klasne so he could share his love for making and listening to all kinds of music. To the casual visitor, it is just a jumble of boxes and bins full of new and used record albums, cassette tapes and compact discs, but to someone in the know, it represents the hidden mother lode of treasures. The shop also offers guitar and keyboard lessons and a variety of friendly cats to pet (or trip you up) while you are browsing.

21. Selected Works Used Bookstore
This is one bookstore with personality. Owner Keith Peterson decorates his store with photos from his many globe-trotting expeditions. In homage to the store's large crime genre section, manager Charles Simmons calls himself "the lord high commissioner," a reference to a 1930s gangster-era hit man called "the lord high executioner" by the newspapers. But don't think the store focuses so much on personality that it forgets about the merchandise. While the selection is general interest, it has substantial fiction, humanities, philosophy, anthropology, and psychology sections. Cookbooks and sheet music are also featured.

22. Sherry-Brener Ltd.

Sherry offers viola, cello, flute and guitar lessons for $18 for a half-hour session. If you need an instrument before your lessons, you can get anything from an $8 whistle to a $400,000 violin.

26. Annex
This antique store harkens back to a simpler era. Not only is the store filled with old tables, chairs, kitchenware and knickknacks, but it is staffed primarily by good-natured women whose demeanors remind you of June Cleaver from the 1950s era "Leave it to Beaver" television show. When it comes time to make your purchase, you won't be greeted by a high-tech computer-as-cash register, but will find a register that is itself an antique. But even this is a "high tech" gadget, relative to the coin box the manager used for the first two years the store was open.
