This is such a cool place! I was looking for authentic souvenirs, at a reasonable price and they had them. The staff is really helpful and made sure all my product was wrapped well enough to make it back to the States!

We're so pleased you enjoy visiting CraftWorld and seeing what talent New Zealander's have to offer. We believe a gift given from our shop is even more special because its made right here, we hope you agree!

Delightful selection of local handmade crafts and other items. Small, inexpensive items, to larger, more expensive ..... Prices were reasonable and it was a wonderful experience, off the beaten path!
