The Edition Shop by BASE

No stone was left unturned when Marriott and hotelier Ian Schrager joined forces on The Waikiki Edition Hotel. This even includes the often dismissed hotel gift shop. The basics are still there tucked into the corners of The Edition Shop but most of the space is devoted to an eclectic hip collection of merchandise from retailer BASE.

The merchandise includes BASE's one-of-a-kind clothing selection to whimsical books and deliberately visual merchandise. Where else in Hawaii can you purchase a Medicom Spock that measures two feet tall or a limited edition Blue Metallic Piggie Bank cast from a pig that died of natural causes.

Some of the merchandise here is high end in line with the luxurious hotel. For many the experience will be to window shop, get a kick at the stuff and move on unless you really need a pair of pistachio colored Urbanears headphones.

Visit for their online store.  This post is one in a series in review of the Waikiki Edition. Click HERE to view the entire series of posts.
