Fukubukuro is back
Fukubukuro returns to Ala Moana Center on New Year's Day. The Japanese tradition of "happy grab bags" offers a holiday surprise for shoppers who purchase the bags of unique mystery products offered for at least 50 percent off normal retail prices.
The popularity of this shopping experience has led to increasing numbers of participating retailers each new year. Participating retailers are Animation Magic, Baccarat, Bally, Bobby Jones, Burberry, Celine, Claire's, Crabtree & Evelyn, D. Fiori, Diesel USA, Dior, Fendi, Folli Follie, Hawaiian Quilt Collection, Hilo Hattie, LeSportsac, Locals Only, Lupicia, Maui Divers Jewelry, Neiman Marcus, Origins, Pacific Harley-Davidson, Prada, Salvatore Ferragamo, Sandal Tree, Sephora, Sunglass Designs and the Compleat Kitchen.
Fukubukuro bag supplies are limited. For information, call the mall's customer service desk at 955-9517.
New Year is the time to sparkle, and the weather is being cooperative, so along with that sequined top and beaded bag, give your bare arms and shoulders an all-over spritz of Soular Therapy's Glitz body glitter spray.
The alcohol-based spray-on shimmer leaves a sheer veil of sparkling color, including violet, diamond, pink, copper, chrome, champagne and rainbow. It washes off the skin with water and brushes out of hair, and can be removed from clothing by brushing or in the wash.
It's available for $15.50 at Blush at Kahala Mall. Call 739-6200 for more information.
The 'Big Free'
It's out with the old year, in with the new at LUSH, and to help clear its shelves of holiday-themed and bulk (100-gram pieces) bath and cosmetic products made in 2005, the Ala Moana Center boutique is offering one free product for every $45 spent (before tax).
The promotion runs through Saturday and can't be used with any other offer. Call 941-7400.
