TEMARI’s Trash & Treasure just gets better and better with each passing year. This, its 34th year promises to be really terrific and well worth the effort to get out of the house on a Sunday.
T&T started as a sort of garage sale in TEMARI’s former site on 10th Avenue in Kaimuki. Members and faculty used it as an opportunity to clean out their studios and sewing rooms. It has evolved into a juried selection of crafters, a White Elephant put on by other non-profits and a series of demonstrations. This year’s demos will be held from noon to 2 p.m. and include:
- Hui o Laulima demonstrating Nuno Zori, or rag-woven slippers
- Moiliili Senior Center with a demo of paper floral pins made with magazine paper
- A folding paper activity for keiki put on by the Asian Affairs Council
- Silent auction and keiki art activity presented by the Autism Society
There will be 46 crafters, including a few seldom seen at craft fairs in Honolulu, such as weaver Joan Namkoong, Jana Higa of Blue Bird Jewelry Hawaii, Lesli Matsumoto of Ume Pits and Linda Ryan of Over the Blue Horizon.
Also on Sunday, October 4, is the Wiki Wiki Vintage Collectibles & Hawaiiana Show.
10:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. ($4.50 general admission)

It’s a great place to start your Halloween shopping or fund a Ming’s piece or two to add to your collection, a mid-century treasures, a treasure trove of vintage textiles, Shabby Chic and all sorts of Hawaiiana items, from kitschy to classic.
