    Souvenirs from Rotorua
    Went to look for gifts for my parents. Looked for a traditional wooden statue and a plate representative of New Zealand. Owner helped me by looking everywhere around the shop, eventually found exactly what I was looking for! Very helpful, you also get what you pay for! Would definitely recommend if you are looking for an original souvenir from this beautiful land :)

    Hidden Treasure!
    Chris is very kind and very knowledgeable about his merchandise. He makes sure what he sells is quality! We went to his shop to try to find pounamu. Little did we know we stumbled onto an incredible collection with an expert to guide us through each piece so we could make the best choice! We will always remember this absolutely lovely shop!

    Incredible Antique Shop in Rotorua! Do not miss!
    This shop is a must when in Rotorua. Chris is so knowledgeable and friendly and the shop reflects his expertise and well honed eye. Such a wide variety of beautiful items - everything from glassware to tapestries to paintings and much much more. Upon reflection, I wish I had bought several more items that caught my eye. Don't miss it! Right in the CBD in Rotorua - so convenient.

    Highlight of our Rotorua shopping.
    So many great items at price points for any shopper. We went here for unique souvenirs and left with a great decorative item for our home. Chris was extremely kind and we felt very comfortable in his shop.

    Do not miss this shop
    Absolutely phenomenal shop, full of actual treasures. Chris has an excellent eye and you'll find items here that you cannot find at any gift shop or commercial store up and down NZ. As travelers, we found really unique hand-crafted pieces and could have stayed for hours. Chris was very helpful and provided great context and information to each item we bought. A must-see.

    Lovely cross section of vintage memorabilia
    I have been to Rotorua many times and have tried to visit the store before however have been unsuccessful due to it being closed. This afternoon it was my pleasure to take a good look around and I was delighted to see some really interesting artwork, sculptures and curiosities. I had a good chat with the owner who was extremely friendly and a real pleasure to engage. If you find yourself in Rotorua I strongly recommend you take a good 30 minutes and take a look around and you will not be disappointed with the range and variety of items on offer.

This is one of the best shops (quality and quantity wise) not only in Rotorua but the whole of New Zealand! The devoted owner is very attentive and knowledgeable being in this field for a few decades. He answered all my questions and helped me choose a few items of my liking showing me a fabulous variety of collectibles with great enthusiasm. Even though we met for the first time I ended up being his friend promising myself to visit this shop every time I come to Rotorua. I would not hesitate to say that your trip to Rotorua is incomplete without visiting this shop.
All the best Chris and thanks for a lovely time
