Antiques and collectibles paradise

Spent ages there. A really quaint and interesting place. Loved the Zenna and Hercules display as well as collectibles of all shape and sizes. A good mix of old and new.

I have been here several times, and I could spend hours and hours more there. There are rooms and rooms full of amazing stuff - new and old. There is something for everyone - vintage faux fur jackets, beautiful green stone necklaces, toys for the kids, books on anything and everything, full size movie and TV show costumes, household items,...

What a neat antique shop! So much stuff, an eclectic mix on neatly ordered and sorted collectables. Prices weren't outrageous at all, and quality was good. Worth an easy hour down memory lane, even if you don't buy anything.

This has to be one of the best antique/collectable shops in New Zealand! You could spend a day in here & not see everything! So an hour it was & i'd go back again. They have everything from old tools to old phones & collectible model cars. The Museum bit is a real bonus! This place honestly needs an award... More

They do have a large range of second hand goods for sale as well as the display of film costumes so you could kill an hour on the premises if you wished to.

This was the best antique shop I ever came across with. I bought an old heavy bakelite wall telephone with a handle and I dragged it in my backpack first to Australia and then all the way back home to the Netherlands. The customs in London Heathrow were very excited about it and showed it to all their colleagues, they... More

If you in Omarama you need to go in and have a look in this amazing little shop. It has something for everyone to look at, and some bargains for antique hunters, I am sure. My son was captivated by a 1916 vintage camera that was for sale for $125, and thought I should be investing...... We spent quite a... More

Don't miss this gallery with a difference. It could easily fit into any exotic city. But here it is in rural New Zealand. It is magnificently established by Sally and Tony Fodie in an effort to ease an entry to semi-retirement. The couple hail from north Otago but spent many years in Auckland. Sally was a Waitemata ferry skipper. The... More
