Unique Maui-made items are featured alongside artists, friends and community members in the upcoming First Night event hosted by Hui No`eau.

The First Night event runs from 5 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, December 1, and is the opening event of the annual edition of the Hui Holidays gift gallery.

Shoppers have an opportunity to get a jumpstart on holiday gift ideas with handmade items crafted by Hui artists.  Hui Holidays features one-of-a-kind jewelry, ceramics, prints, fiber, photography, glass and paintings.

The one-night-only First Night event offers a dramatically re-envisioned Kaluanui estate with the help of designer/ choreographer André Morrisette, who will reveal his enchanting holiday window installations.


Aside from shopping, guests will enjoy festive cocktails and pupu, taste special locally-made tea & coffee by Coffees of Hawaii, and listen to spirited music.
