This is a very unique store in the central Queenstown full of very cute and unique gifts you won't find anywhere else. I loved how the store is like a house and you go into different rooms to see different products with different themes

From the time you step into the colonial cottage, it is filled with treasures of New Zealand. A must visit for any tourists or New Zealanders looking for “that something special”. Extremely friendly staff. Highly recommend.
