    I picked this one up last week. There were quite a few other pins, but I wanted one with the year. Hopefully someone else will post a picture of the other pins for you. Aulani pin.jpeg

    Two gift shops? Hmmm... the only one I can picture, which I would consider the main one, is on floor 3 Ewa side to the left when walking through the main entrance. I would suspect you'd find the pins there.

    How many Aulani specific pins would you say they had? A few, 10, etc? I've seen an Aulani stitch one on the internet and I'm hopeful it's still there. Also, are the price points higher than WDW or are they on the same level of green/silver/etc

    IMG_2061.JPG At Kalepa's Store, the main gift shop, there is a wall with pins. Here is a sample photo I found online.

    I believe that this one is from 2017 as I saw it also so I'm not sure that all those pins are still there and haven't been retired.. :snooty:

    They had a wall similar to the one posted in terms of how many they had. I *think* there was a stitch one, but I really can't remember. I vaguely remember that there were some generic Disney pins, that were nom-Aulani related. I didn't pay a lot of attention to the other pins because my pin was in a basket near the cashier and I didn't even realize there was a whole pin wall until a my 2nd or 3rd visit.

    I don't have the reciept but I think my pin cost like $14 or 15.

    Is that the one further up the hall in Ewa with mostly clothing items?

    Yes, plus the Dooney & Kate Spade (may she rest in peace) purses.

    This one is on the opposite side of the main one a little further down the hall.

    Kalepa Store is the original shop at Aulani and as mentioned, is just a bit down to the left off of the lobby (toward the Ewa tower). Hale Manu store was opened with the major enhancements done soon after Aulani's opening. Hale Manu (means house of birds I believe) has the more upscale items as mentioned, like the Dooney & Burke bags and nicer clothing items, jewelry, sunglasses, etc. Kalepa has grocery items as well as souvenir type items, tee shirts, etc. :cutie:
