Filled with Art Deco items, with the staff dressed to kill in the outfits of the 1930s, this place has everything Art Deco you could ever want. Clothes, lamps, books, glassware.....the list is endless. Also of course smaller, lighter, less expensive items. Easy to spend, spend spend here. But it's all so lovely! Tours available in cars of the period, with a driver dressed straight out of The Great Gatsby....

Loved our tour. Good mix of fact and humour. Liked that the guide is a volunteer interested in the subject. Also that despite running over time was willing and eager to continue. Shop very good with reasonably priced goods. Also great mix of people. Loved it all.

The art deco shop in Napier is superb. There is an enormous choice of good quality items to suit all budgets. The staff are dressed in period costume and are friendly and helpful. They even allowed me to take a photo of them. I could have spent all day browsing.

Lovely shop, and the video was very informative about the earthquake and the building of the town, and the staff enthusiastic and helpful.

The Art Deco shop is a treasure trove of 1930's memorabilia and well worth a visit. There is also a short film about the earthquake with a small charge ($5).
Try to avoid it on cruise ship days as it gets a bit busy!!
