This is the place for Jade. Believe it's the biggest in NZ. Local artist. Wonderful designs, great work. From affordable to super expensive pieces which are museum quality. Go visit. It's worth the time

I absolutely fell in love my piece when I walked in the store. Colin is an extremely talented carver. This is definitely a destination you don't want to miss if your're in NZ south island.
