    Absolutely fabulous craft shop to satisfy a large range of interests and very friendly staff. The most outstand part was I emailed them asking if they could courier an item I had spied and taken a photo of without my wife detecting me, it is for Mother’s Day. The correspondence was lightening quick, answered all my questions and provided me with bank details. I purchase the item around 1pm and it was on my door step at 950am the next day, we are in CHCH, NZ. It might be just over the alps, but I was expecting 2-3 days. The packaging was also top class. The item individually wrapped, then placed in a good-sized box with plenty of paper strips cushioning the item, brilliant. I’m extremely happy and will defiantly return, must see for all, great experience. Thanks, a mill, Trevor, Yes, I’m a male in a craft shop! and what an enjoyable experience it was….

    I cannot rate this experience highly enough. This is the 3rd time I’ve visited and each time I’ve come away with beautifully carved pendants. Steve is patient and helpful through every stage and the carving studio is just as user friendly for girlz as it is boyz🙂. Thanks again Steve.

    I have purchased 2 pieces of jade from this lovely shop. They have a huge range of beautiful jade, and they were very helpful in getting the pieces I wanted. The couriering of the pieces were super fast. Very good service and so helpful. I would definitely recommend going there to find your piece of jade.

    Rik and his wife Anna were amazing hosts. He showed us all around the west coast and nothing was too much trouble. The biking was amazing and we were sad to be at the end and saying goodbye to Rik. He he super knowledgeable and so much fun ! We would recommend this to anyone, it was a fantastic 4 days and will be one of our most memorable holidays

    The Gold Room is a fascinating place to buy gold and gold related products at reasonable pricing. It was a unique experience to even see some large gold stones. Customer service is extremely courteous and friendly. Would certainly visit again over here and very highly recommend this place to anyone.

    They say that the place to buy Jade is in Hokitika. Although I did not buy any, this store was a museum in and of itself. It was fun to watch the Jade carvers at work. They have many large pieces of jade to look at and their display cabinets are filled. I found it a little pricey but would recommend a visit if in the area.

    A large amount of original carvings, no mass consumerism to be found here! We were able to take our time looking around with no pressure and the woman who was there was able to talk with us about the pieces we were considering purchasing.

    Respectful, authentic and unique sum it up

    We thoroughly recommend this store for people looking for Pounamu (New Zealand Greenstone). The woman at the counter was delightful and especially kind to our children. She had a wonderful way with our children and had a great knowledge and understanding of the Greenstone.
