Adjacent to one of NewZealands most photographed building, The Cardrona Hotel. A tiny shop but stuffed with an interesting and eclectic mix of things - many sourced locally. My friend bought some "bloke soap" made with mud and beer, and I bought a lovely print of the Cardrona Hotel.
Well worth a visit

This place had a very nice selection of Cardrona related products and Kiwiana. Nice and warm inside too.

My son and I had a wonderful breakfast at the Cardrona Hotel, thought we would pop into the Old School Gallery Gift Shop next door when we saw the large Open sign on the road. The shop assistant was the Rudest girl ever, she had yellow hair and a long red coat and made the whole experience Awful!! We left the several things we wanted to purchase and got out of there fast. Dreadfully rude!

The old school house is only small but it has been decorated well and mostly has products as souvenirs for the Cardrona Hotel like t shirts and tea towels and prints etc. A few other collections were nice but I would like to see more variety to be of more interest. The building is cute in its setting by the hotel. Please fix the door lock as visitors can't open the door and think it's closed!

As I biked through Cardrona I came across this super cute little hut and I simply had to walk in and I discovered a treasure of art and artifacts, things to buy or simply to browse. The lady in attendance was very kind and happy to show me around and tell many local stories of past and present.
