anyone know where i can buy bamboo handles - for a bag - around Honolulu?

Ben Franklins (Mkt city) sells a pair, only about 5.99 but made of PLASTIC, fake bamboo that looks really fake! I was hoping for the real bamboo.

any ideas?

I don't live in Hawai'i anymore, but the cheapest options I found there were scavenging the handles from another purse (either something from Goodwill or another thrift shop, or a cheap bag from the swap meet or other touristy area).

Thanks.  Smiley

Hopefully someone who actually lives in Hawai'i will come along and tell you great places to buy handles. I miss living there sometimes!

Oh! I remember seeing a pair at Fabric Mart (I think that is what it is called...the fabric not to far away from the convention center) But that was around halloween time, but I wouldn't doubt that they woudl still have

I was at the Mililani Walmart today and saw a couple different bamboo handles. One was all bamboo and the other was kinda like bamboo beads...anyway, I think they were around $6 but I could be wrong about that!
