After Black Friday, keep the shopping spree going at Ka Makana Ali’i by supporting local on Small Business Saturday! The center is home to a number of locally-owned businesses like Kalena Instruments, My Slime Playroom and brand new to the shopping center, The Blessed Life.

Slime is all the rage with kids these days, and Ka Makana Ali’i is home to My Slime Playroom, the best place to make all kinds of slime. This Small Business Saturday, check out workshops where you can learn to create your own keychains and bracelets using colorful slime add-ins. The workshops are brand new and launching just in time for the holidays.

Just next door to My Slime Playroom is Kalena Instruments. On Black Friday and Small Business Saturday, Kalena Instruments’ sparkle edition ukulele is 50 percent off and comes with a free 360 gig bag. Professional musicians design the top-quality, affordable musical instruments and accessories that are strictly tested by a qualified technician.

The Blessed Life is the newest store to open at Ka Makana Alii and it will also have some specials going on for Black Friday and Small Business Saturday. The store is a Christian-themed local clothing brand that is opening on November 23 with a performance by Ten Feet. The store will be offering 50% off its most popular Blessed crown sandal. Instead of $42.95, these will go for just over $21. Talk about a deal!

After a day of shopping, Small Business Saturday is also the perfect time to get photos with Santa! Check out the Santa’s Grove photo set at Ka Makana Ali’i to get your family photos taken ahead of the holidays. It will also be donating 50 percent of its profits that day to the Salvation Army.
