About us  continued:

We come from a trading family that dates back to 1894 in Utrecht, The Netherlands.
For those who are not familiar with the Dutch Language, the advertisements were published in the Utrecht's Newspaper written by Granddad starting at age 19.

My grandparents ran several businesses including selling butter (Butterhouse), mussels and herring. Also eggs, cheese, tea, coffee and cake.
Initiated in 1897 by Grandma, the daughter of a brush maker, they simultaneous started a Bazaar next door, the first general / super store in Utrecht, offering all kinds of household items like alarm clocks, blankets, buckets, brushes, brooms, coffee grinders, you name it.
All their 5 children helped in the fish smelly ice cold storage with cleaning, packaging and making deliveries to clients and wholesalers.
Their stores were also a neighborhood gathering place for local event ticket sales.
The old horse tram that connected the city with the rural south started and ended in front of their shops, situated just outside the the old city walls and toll bridge. Next door was a large and lively tavern Café The Swan welcoming thirsty traders, farmers and travelers.

On the other side a pharmacy opened during the First World War where my father as an unpaid apprentice learned the pharmacy trade and photography. After the First WW Dad immigrated to Indonesia and opened his own pharmacy and after the Second WW another in Amersfoort, The Netherlands.

The Bazaar was extended by my 2 uncles who during the 2nd world war were hiding their illegal declared radios from the German occupiers by stacking them between double walls and delivering them to the resistance.


Some highlights from the late 1800's advertisements that you might enjoy:

Real Butter and tasty Cheese came by boat straight from the surrounding farms, not from a food processing factory.
Ei cadeau = Free egg or 2. With a certain amount of REAL butter priced in pounds -note the wide variety of different priced butter.

Proeven kostenloos = Free tasting (butter and cheese).

Concurentie Onmogelijk = Competition Impossible.

Gaarne wordt de Boter etc, wekelijks aan huis bezorgt = Butter etc. weekly delivery free to your home.

Briefkaart wordt vergoed = Postcard refunded. For orders received by postcard!!

25 cent voor de flesch terug = 25 cents return for the jar.
The jar filled with 16 herring fish was costing 5 times more than one herring.
Now one herring costs 5 Euro and a jar around 50cents.

SIPhawaii is a family owned and operated One-Stop e-commerce business located in Waikiki - Honolulu.
Founded in July 2007. Operating from and registered in the state of Hawaii.

We are happy and proud 'Presenting The Isles' Best products at down to earth prices.
Reasons that our products are so reasonably priced is that we don't waste money on
fancy overhead costs and borrow from the banks, but by streamlining with suppliers that understand
the needs of small business, being efficient and by doing all our web site design in-house
- expenses that would have to be passed along to our customers.

Over time, we will frequently extend and update our Hawaiian products range.

We've built up a strong following of customers, with international testimonials.
Many of them are amazed at the competitive prices and the speed that with we deliver.
Why is our business not advertised locally?
The answer is we are a family business and very down-home and low-key.
We believe that if you treat customers well with fair prices and good friendly service,
supplementing relevant information, those customers will tell their friends about our site,
and will continue to be good customers themselves.

If you have a problem with our service, give us the opportunity to fix it.
Email us at customerserviceatsiphawaii·com.

In our 7 year history, USPS has delivered all orders, worldwide, within their timeframe - with 1 exception to the British Channel Islands -
but never damaged a package.

please read the info near the bottom of our Home Page.
