For anyone who is into kitsch or history or just buying those items affectionately known as souvenirs (aka Junk), the International Marketplace in Waikiki is going to be torn down at the end of 2013 to make way for new upscale hotel and shopping opportunities. (I heard potentially a St Regis or Ritz Carlton.) When we came over on our honeymoon many moons ago, the International Marketplace was one of the first places we walked through so I have fond memories even though I didn't buy anything. I can't imagine not having the opportunity to say good bye to a campy classic, so I wanted to share the news with anyone else who didn't know and might be visiting. Aloha International Marketplace!
