I wanted to purchase a delightful pair of earrings I had seen there and the owners couldn't have been more helpful in photographing and then sending them to me. Such wonderful service... More

Wandered in while waiting for the ferry. A wide range of unique and beautiful craft pieces. Glass art, jewelry, and sculpture. Reasonable prices for the quality of work. Found several things that called to us. If you are passing through Picton, and looking for a tasteful local craft item to provide a reminder of a visit to New Zealand, this... More
