From beautiful china-sets to rare books and board games, you can find great treasures in thrift stores. Indeed, Hawaiian shopper Shannon Hiramoto found herself a gem in the form of a familiar-looking dress. The woman soon learned about the long legacy that came with the bright muumuu (a popular dress in Hawaii).
Hiramoto, from Kauai, enjoys searching for vintage muumuus as one of her favorite pastimes. So that’s exactly what she was doing when she came across the floral muumuu in a Salvation Army shop in Lihue.
When she found the dress, she liked its short length. It is a pink piece covered with detailed flowers, and it has a V-neck with thrills above the bust. When worn, the mini muumuu falls just above her knee. But she would soon discover that there is far more to it than meets the eye.
