This is not your grandpa’s antique store. Since first opening their dearly missed midcentury modern furniture story, Area, in 2007, shop owners Mark Pei and Travis Flazer have been providing Honolulu with a much-needed commodity: everyday style. They’ve since turned their attentions to a more specific curation of vintage oddities for the home with Hound & Quail, now in a new location on Nuʻuanu Avenue in Chinatown, Honolulu—wholesale lifestyle items to make your apartment, your outfit, or your day just a little bit better.

We stopped by the shop to talk to Mark and Travis and picked out a few things we thought you ought to see.

This Big Island micro-colony honey in two flavors: Mauka and Makai.
“It’s small batch. They found honey in the Egyptian pyramids so we wanted to carry some. It’s also rad that they have completely different flavor profiles, Mauka vs Makai”
