Maui's Sweet Holiday Hale

If you're Lucky enough to live on Maui or at least visit during the Holidays, you just gotta go visit the Ace Hardware in Lahaina! This is what the Magic of Christmas is all about...

Store Supervisor Korleen Puou and her team of Ace Hardware elves, created this yummy 7 foot Gingerbread House. With its gingerbread walls and standing 4 feet square, it's big enough for kids of all ages to peek out from.

The Amazing roof was made with 40 dozen cookies!

And the sweetness doesn't stop there! The store is sponsoring a Gingerbread House decorating contest. You'll need to use the decorating kits sold at their Ace Hardware store. They will be taking up to 20 entries, which they will display in the store. The 20 entries will all have 12-inch by 12-inch bases. There will be a children’s category for kids age ten and under, as well as an adult division. Entry deadline is Dec. 18, and judging will take place on Dec. 20, with the winners notified the following day. Prizes will be awarded in each category for first, second and third place winners. (If you have any questions, call them at 808.661.0814)

Lahaina Ace Hardware is just one of the neighbor island Ace stores that are a part of our Ben Franklin Crafts Ohana. I just had to share some of their fun ideas, thought it was sooo cool!I guess in our company, Creativity runs deep!
