Great selection of local arts and crafts

It is so nice to visit local arts and crafts instead of the mass produced souvenir shops. We found some great things to take home from here.

The really wonderful days are Saturdays when you can check out various artists working and they will always stop and talk to you about their work.

You want to take something home for friends that looks as good when you got it there as when you bought it in NZ?

Wow what a cool shop that was, definitely more alive than the others we visited, very passionate owners in there!
