  • Touristic store, quite expensive, friendly staff. My opinion that the whole idea of Paua shells is over rated. Still worth visiting for once at least.
  • Cute shop. Always fun to pop in and see what's new
  • Beautiful stuff. Prices are good
  • Great place to visit. Great gift shop.
  • Good souvenirs of New Zealand.
