When we first saw these Shaka Nekos, we weren’t sure if people would love them as much as we did.
Turns out, these figurines — thought to bring good luck and good surf — were even more popular than we ever could have imagined!
We ordered hundreds of these 6.5-inch-tall ceramic figurines designed by Kauai artist Glenn Schot last year — and we’re down to our last ones.
Maneki Neko (or Welcoming Cat) are popular Japanese figurines believed to bring good luck and fortune. You see them all over Hawaii — in restaurants, in offices, in homes. These Shaka Nekos are the Hawaiian-style version of the good luck cats — and they have been a popular omiyage (gift) at our logo store, RainbowTiki.
You can buy them online — we still have white, pink and gold left — for $28. (They’re $21 at the logo store.)
