Fodor's Expert Review Banana Patch Studio
What started as a one-woman operation in 1991 now employs more than 20 artists, who hand-paint ceramic tiles, tableware, ornaments, and fun signs at this factory store in a 1926 former pool hall. Glazes are lead-free and kilns are powered by solar panels, which feed back to the power grid when they're not firing. The studio's "Mahalo for Removing your Slippers" plaques are a classic island souvenir. Custom orders are available.
