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.

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!

This is a must see when you're in Hokitika. It's a great place to buy some very nice and well priced souvenirs. There is a range of wood products along with paintings, great wooden bookmarks and jewellery. The staff are fabulous as well.

We were wandering around Hokitika looking at the various shops for gifts and things to bring home. We really hadn't found anything that appealed to us and that wasn't very touristy until we found the Hokitika Craft Gallery Co-Op. It was a unanimous opion between the three of us. We all bought things to bring back to friends and family.... More

I wish I had found more shops like this one in New Zealand. We were in New Zealand for 2 weeks and this is the best shopping I had the whole time!

The Hokitiika Craft Gallery is a long-standing artists' coop with wonderful objects made in NZ by local craftspeople. Jade, wood from reclaimed trees, silver, ceramics. The local artists are often on site to tell you about their work.
