sopupuka Running a business mostly by myself has been the craziest ride and most amazing learning experience. I've made so many mistakes but continue to learn from them. I've been working so hard lately on trying to streamline things so that I can grow more easily. With that said, I'm moving my online store from Shopify to Square for a lot of reasons that are probably too boring to read on Instagram. The store will be down for approximately one week while I take everything apart and put it back together and I won't be taking any online orders or requests at this time. Orders that have already been placed will of course be fulfilled. If you have any questions, feel free to shoot me an email at Ihilani@sopupuka.com. Mahalo! #sopupuka #Hawaii #smallbusiness #shoplocal #hilo #bigisland 3d

sopupuka Funny story: this clothing rack arrived yesterday and while I was putting the kids to sleep my husband put it together. I came out groggy and half awake and walked right past it - literally 6 inches away from it. He was like "how could you NOT notice this giant metal rack in the middle of our living room?" Well this morning when the girls got up they walked right past it too. In fact, they didn't notice it until after breakfast. #sorryhun 2w

  •   haliilani I'm coming next week 2w
  •   sopupuka @haliilani yes!!! Grandma told me and I forgot lol! Thanks for reminding me. How are you getting around? Are you borrowing grandma's car? Let me know if you need rides or anything and let's definitely hang out! 2w
  •   haliilani Whoa sorry I didn't even realize you replied!!! I'm so excited to come! Grandmas picking my us up from the airport and we're going straight to ka'u but we're coming back up on Sunday! Our flight doesn't leave until 9pm so we'll probably be hanging out downstairs in grandmas place for a while could keola or you if you're still awake, drop us off at the airport? We'll have grandmas car with us. 1w
  •   sopupuka @haliilani ok cool. Yeah we can give you a ride no problem. See you Sunday! 1w

sopupuka Ok I'm gonna try my hand at selling direct on Instagram. I have ONLY ONE of these aloha/a hui hou onesies in pink 6-12 months. It costs $15 + $3 for shipping. If you're interested, Leave your email in the comments and I'll send you a Square invoice. I'll ship once I receive payment. You have 24 hours or it goes to the next commenter. Mahalo! #hawaii #sopupuka #supportlocal #hilife #808 #aloha #bigisland #hilo #madeinhawaii #islandstyle #olelohawaii  #hawaiian #hawaiianstyle 2w
  •   jenlovesmaui FYI many people will use PayPal. 2w
  •   sopupuka @jenlovesmaui I know but I like the money to go straight to my bank rather than have to transfer and wait for it. Simpler for me but I may have to use PayPal. I'm just experimenting. 2w
  •   lianimal808 How does the square invoice work? Would I just type in my credit card number? Can I send you a DM with my email? I NEED this! 2w
  •   mommalovebaby @sopupuka we use @square too! Love the invoicing feature! I'm gonna email you soon since I love your stuff! Would love to carry some things...aloha 2w
  •   sopupuka @lianimal808 sure you can DM me your email. Yep. Just type in your credit card info like any online store and they handle the processing. I don't see any sensitive info at all. 2w
  •   lianimal808 Sent you a DM. I'm excited! 2w
  •   sopupuka @mommalovebaby mahalo! I would love to put some onesies in your shop! I'm working on building up some inventory so let's definitely keep in touch! 2w
  •   sopupuka SOLD! Mahalo! 2w

sopupuka Booth design from scratch and on the cheap and it must be done in time for the Waimea Cherry Blossom Festival this Saturday. I've been racking my brain for the last two weeks trying to figure out how to create a portable (fit in the trunk of my car...NOT van or truck) light weight but not too light display that takes up almost no room when it's disassembled. Tall order but I think I figured it out. Hopefully. Fingers crossed! 3w
  •   aksako94 I'll have to visit your booth again! My dog chewed up my hat 3w
  •   sopupuka @aksako94 that's no fun! I got you covered though! And I'll also be at Nāwahī on the 14th in Kea‘au if that's more convenient :) 3w
  •   aksako94 Yay! I'm dancing in the Cherry Blossom Festival, so I'll be able to drop by easily 3w

sopupuka Stole a #honihoni shirt for myself this morning . SOOO comfy-the exact opposite of having a 25 lb baby sitting on your ʻōpū. I'm gonna have to kick her off soon. My complete inventory of what I have printed so far will be online by the end of the day. 1mon
  •   aluauha That's what I wanna do right now! (Minus the baby on the 'ōpū, of course.) 1mon

sopupuka It's not May yet but my grandma just gave me this picture. #tbt to almost 20 years ago when I got to be queen for a day. I had to audition for it and being the only girl who didn't grow up dancing in a hālau, I didn't think my chances were very good. My mom taught me Puahone and made me a simple pā‘ū and they chose me! I often wondered why I was chosen when there were other more experienced dancers. I think being Hawaiian had something to do with it (others were not) but I also think there was mana in the fact that I was representing my mother who was closer to me than any kumuhula could've been. I did not practice in front of a large mirror with lots of other people, but with her, in our living room where she patiently taught me each verse, how to move my hands, where to place my feet. Those humble practice sessions were intimate and full of aloha, and I think the panel could sense that as I danced. It was an amazing experience to audition and to represent my ‘ohana that day. This was a profound moment for me. 1mon

  •   kaceeerae Dang! Good job! You work fast! 1mon
  •   sopupuka @kaceeerae well, it looked a lot worse than it was. My problem is trying to do too many things at once. I definitely need to get a set schedule going and only do one thing at a time. 1mon
