When I shop, I look for locally-made products that truly reflect the work of people living in the area -- regardless of where I am traveling. The North Shore features some great stores for work of local artists and craftspeople. Check out two of my favorite finds: The Growing Keiki, a children's boutique in Haleiwa, and Full Fathom Five, a gallery in Waialua.
