    All were boutique shops selling different things. It's a nice place to browse and to have lunch.

    It's a nice idea to make use of the old buildings.

    This shop was recommended to us so after some intensive map reading we arrived. The cheeses on offer were amazing and the assistant explained each of the different types recommending a parmesan style cheese from NZ. It was very good and much enjoyed wine a glass of red on our balcony.

    A very helpful friendly lady serving and good quality souvenirs on offer. The New Zealand Toy fluffy sheep were a much better quality than I'd seen elsewhere and the little sheep scarf was cute too.

    Different from other mainstream NZ souvenir shops, HAPA offers slightly more artistic and creative stuff. It's situated in a backyard off Cashel.

    The Fudge Cottage is our go-to for gifts, they do the most delicious gift baskets of goodies as well as fudge bars which they will personalise for the person/occasion.
    The staff are so friendly and always available to offer a taste of their latest creation - hokey pokey is the standard favourite!

    We were a Hong Kong tour group that stopped here for a presentation of the offerings of the gift store and then lunch. The decor is fairly modern looking, and the building is well-lit and welcoming. The gift store is the largest that I saw in the time that we were on the South Island, including furs, apparel, merino wool items, and honey-based gifts, and pricing was comparable to that which I saw elsewhere. They also sold some items that mostly only Asian people would be interested in, such as fish maws. There is a beautiful garden next to the building well worth a stop for photos.

    The Canterbury University Bookshop has always been the most wonderful independent bookseller. Obviously, it's full of required texts for students but it also has a great rang of all new releases and classics of both works of fiction and non fiction. Set under the gum trees on campus, there is paid metered off street parking readily available. So you can stay and browse as long as you like.

    The diversity of products available at this shop is great, an Aladdin's cave, especially for gift ideas, I could spend all day looking at the uniqueness of them, but what I particularly love are the essential oils and products complimenting these. The quality and range of the oils are the best I have used. I can’t complement the shop enough. Well done to the owners.

    Situated in 111 Cashel in a backyard with lots of other shops, Scorpio is a well sorted bookshop. I bought a few really nice postcards there.

    This organic food store has a good selection of everything at prices that are even higher than the usual high NZ food prices.
    The homemade peanut butter is yummy.
