About Us
Mahina means "Moon" in Hawaiian. In Hawai'i, the legend is that the shadow of the Hawaiian moon goddess, "Hina" can be seen sitting in the moon making Kapa (hawaiian cloth from the fibre of the mulberry tree). Hina is a personification of the feminine, as she also takes on many forms of strength such as mother and protector, wife of Maui.

My name is Mele, and this is my shop! I am a mother of two toddlers and currently living in Los Angeles, California. I am originally from Maui, Hawai'i and my earliest memories have always included my fascination with antiques. You might call me an "old soul" mixed with the fact that my Hawaiian culture fostered a deep respect for the tangibility of history. I have a deep respect for the places and people for which an item was loved and lived, long before I ever existed.

At Mahina Marketplace, you will find a wide range of antiques and ephemera, however what you will see most here are dolls. I am drawn to the human form, historical significance, and the artistic care and emotional message with which each doll was crafted. Not to mention the personal stories of being loved, lost and found again, that each doll bears within its vessel.

I carefully curate my store with things that I personally love. I hold myself to the highest standards and encourage you to uphold me to the same. Your satisfaction is important to me!
