What a great little shop right on the lake front. Local artists and retro bits and pieces inside the oldest cottage in Queenstown. Lovely service. You could easily spend some time poking around in the little rooms.

This charming stop in a historic cabin is definitely worth a stop in Queenstown. I only wish we had more time as we admired some of the art, but it felt too rushed to make a decision given how little time we had in town. If we had more than 1 day there, we would have returned and not left... More

Lovely work from local artists. It is so great seeing a store like this in the middle of a town filled with tourist stores and would be great if more people visited. Really beautiful jewelry, art and homewares and great service!!

Very well presented variety of artwork, unique gifts, and very helpful sales assistant. The building is charming, interesting history of the family who lived in the house over several generations, and is in reasonable condition considering the age of the building. It's a must see when visiting Queenstown. Professional website, good offer of delivery of purchases to Australia, too. Lovely... More

I am so glad they have a website and deliver within NZ for free, I wanted to buy newly everything in there! The art is great, the gifts are great and all within the oldest building on the Queenstown lakefront. Call in when you are in Queenstown, you won't regret it, but your budget might.

You have to visit this place!! There are so many things to buy. Some things costly, others extremely affordable! This shop is in the oldest house in Queenstown - I think there are about 4 different rooms filled with things, a hallway with artwork and even a front greenhouse with their Lassie dog and some more outdoor gear. It was... More

Every year we catch up with friends in Queenstown. And I never miss taking a peep into this little historic house full of real kiwi delights. An excellent selection of top nz art and crafts etc. Really cool and different creative work from all over.... love love.
