Nice range of items

Lots of nice pieces in here, hard to choose what to get. In the end just plumped for something we could carry for the rest of our trip.

What a great shop - so many things I'd have loved to have taken home! High quality items and whilst some were pricey, the workmanship is clear and makes items worth the price.

This shop was a great find! The artist who was manning the shop was very friendly. We ended up doing most of our NZ gift shopping here: rimu coasters and trivets and several pairs of greenstone earrings. When my wife later lost one of the earrings, the artist graciously arranged to send a replacement.

This shop was an excellent find for presentation, variety, price, and quality of locally made goods. The gentleman manning the sales counter was courteous and helpful. I am a very choosy shopper, whether for gifts or souvenirs, and this enterprise met my standards. Yes, I did purchase a lovely Rimu bowl for myself -- enough said!

This is a good spot to buy NZ gifts for the folks back home--things made of wool, crafted of NZ woods, glass, pottery. I don't know if items have been approved by a jury but they appeared to be given the quality. Prices are fairly reasonable too.

A great co-op of displayed local arts and crafts where you can buy authentic souvenirs. Service was good too - friendly and informative. Recommended

We stopped here to replace a hand painted silk scarf bought by a friend of ours ten years ago. The lady in charge is the same person and was able to sell us a similar scarf and a few for my wife. A lovely lovely place. Well worth a detour of highway six.

A local gallery that displays marvellous work from local artists. Well worth a browse to see if you can buy a memento for your trip to New Zealand!
