Best seaside shopping towns on Oahu?

Looking for things to do while visiting family.
We are going to the swap meet, but I am looking for small towns that have lots of little shops. Maybe like Carmel, or maybe Solana Beach, CA... or even a little mountain village. Just a smal community with lots of little independant shops. Location on island not a concern.

I was also going to say Haleiwa. At first blush, I mostly found t-shirt shops and similar, but then we made our way to a little shopping center Haleiwa Market Place where we found several really cute shops and ultimately spent some money. We bought coffee and treats at The Coffee Gallery and some terrific Honu art by Cindy Conklin at the art gallery next door (Britton Art Gallery). Nice jewelry and paperweights too. Would have spent more time here but we started at other end and ran out of time.

Kailua has some independent shops. If you're a chocolate lover, you must make a pilgrimage to Madre Chocolate
