Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Full of locally made products from candles to cowhide purses to handmade jewellery. A must to stop in to pick up a gift, and amazing for finding a true souvenir of NZ!

Amazing funky container store in Garston, a must see and a fantastic place to stop off if you’re on the road. With jewellery to art to soap.. the list goes on, everything is locally NZ made with a lot of love and care and this cool little store reflects that perfectly!

Definitely pop in and say Hi to Tab (the owner) always good to support small business’ and most definitely this one :)
